[G] like that [B7] novice at the [C] alter.

[C] Sorrow took [G] Love’s splintered hands
and [Bm] waltzed her ‘cross a painted [Am] floor. [C]

[F] [F#] I’m going to [G] close my eyes, [C] [G]

Tabbed by kkmccool: the ending goes back and forth between [G] and [C] until about three lines from the end then it adds the [F] and [F#] again.
bbkim’s note: The [F] and [F#] respectively each receive only one beat, very short, quick strokes.
