Tuning: Standard

Intro:  E   A   E   A

     E                              A
King Saul fell on his sword when it all went wrong,
     E                                  B
and Joseph’s brothers sold him down the river for a song,
     E                              A
and Sonny Liston rubbed some tiger balm into his glove.
      F#                          A                           E
some things you do for money and some you do for love, love, love.

(E)  A   E   A

   E                           A
Raskolnikov felt sick but he couldn't say why
         E                             B
when he saw his face reflected in his victim's twinkling eye.
      E                              A
some things you'll do for money and some you'll do for fun,
        F#                                  A                B      E
but the things you do for love are going to come back to you one by one.

(E) A

(A)                                     E
Love, love is going to lead you by the hand
A                                 E
     into a white and soundless place.
A                      F#              E
     now we see things as in a mirror dimly.
A                                 B   
     then we shall see each other face to face.
    E                         A
and way out in Seattle young Kurt Cobain
 E                                 B
snuck out to the greenhouse, put a bullet in his brain.
 E                                    A
snakes in the grass beneath our feet, rain in the clouds above,  
      F#                       A                               E
some moments last forever, but some flare up with love, love, love.
