Satisfied Mind

Satisfied Mind Guitar Chords & Lyrics
(INSTRU: misc / add lib)
 
(pluck)
 
         D   E             D             A      A
How many times... have you heard someone say
        E       D                  A     A
If I had money... I'd do things my way
                 D  E             D       A       A
But little they know... that it's so hard to find
               E     D                   A     A
One rich man in ten... with a satisfied mind
 
A           D    E               D                 A   A
Money can't buy back... all your youth when you're old
                    E        D                  A      A
A friend when you're lonely... or peace to your soul
 
A              D    E         D         A      A
The wealthiest person... is a pauper at times
                E     D                 A      A
Compared to the man... with a satisfied mind
 
       D         E          D              A         E      D     A
(oh... ooh... yeah... satisfied, satisfied mind... ooh... ooh... ooh)
 
N.C.            D   E          D            A
When my life is over... and my time has run out
                  E            D                   A
My friends and my loved ones... I'll leave them no doubt
                    D   E              D        A      A
But one thing's for certain... when it comes my time
                    E      D                   A      A     A
I'll leave this old world... with a satisfied mind
 
                    D   E              D        A
But one thing's for certain... when it comes my time
                E               D                    A
I'll leave this ol' world... ooh... with a satisfied mind.

Lilac Wine

Lilac Wine Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 3rd fret

[Verse]
Em
I lost myself on a cool damp night
C
Gave myself in that misty light
B7                  Am
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
B7            Em
Under a lilac tree
Em
I made wine from the lilac tree
C
Put my heart in its recipe
Am
It makes me see what I want to see...
B7                    Em
And be what I want to be
Ddim                     A
When I think more than I want to think
Am                       Em
Do things I never should do
Ddim                     A
I drink much more than I ought to drink
Am                             Em       B7
Because it brings me back you...
 
[Instrumental]
E      E7
 
[Chorus]
E       E7      A         B7    E         E7
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
A     Bm E  A         Bm  E  A
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
C                            B7
Listen to me... I cannot see clearly
B7                          F#m7     B7
Isn't that she coming to me nearly here?
 
[Chorus]
E     E7   A         B7         E        E7
Lilac wine is sweet and heady, where's my love?
A     Bm E  A         Bm  E  A
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, where's my love
C                                  B7
Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
B7                                F#m7   B7
Isnt that she, or am I just going crazy, dear?
 
[Outro]
E     E7     A       B7     E      E7
Lilac wine, I feel unready, for my love
           A    Am    B7       E
I feel unready       for my love...

[Verse]
 
Cmaj7         D                                 Em C
Lady, all the troubles are my fright, I disgust you.
Cmaj7    D                             C
Feel the power. You cut the truth into you.
            D                             C
Why? Do you think I'd hidden out? On this rely
                       D                     G  Gmaj7 Cmaj7 D C
I could kiss you, with lines of escape in my mouth.
C              F#m                           Am       G  C
Please, let me bring back this gifts of mine to the woman.
Cmaj7                 D                   Bm  D Em
His eyes shined on my back as I slept and knew you.
 
[Chorus]
 
    Am     C        D     Am              G
You didn't leave it all. You made an even call.
   C                  D Dm      Am                G    Dm G C
My belly released the stars and tears between the scars.
     Em D G Em D C
Ooooh
 
[Verse]
 
      Em
We're where we belong, it should end here,
D
Until the end of time,
Am         A           G
Beyond the moment that ends our bondage.
Em               F#m
I am your failed husband contender,
         D             C
I'm your loan shark of bliss.
 
[Chorus]
 
                         D             Am            G
This dream you've ridden on turns your world to explosions
C                D                          G
You need to be alone to heal this bleeding stone.
A     A#               G          F
Now, smell the rain of London, it still insists
            A#      Gm  F
That we beg for our purity.
       Em A#         Dm  E       F
As if we are pure in the rain of our contentment,
            A#    A
As if I can think of
A#   C  F
this no more.

   Circle around the park		
Emadd9   				
   Joining hands in silence		
D7                          Bmadd13-   G/B	
   Watch the evil black the sky

The storm has ripped the shelter

    Of illusion from our brow		
B5       G#5         Gmaj7(II)

Dmaj7           D      Dsus2
     Leave your spirit genocide
Gmaj7              G        Gmaj7
    The cancer you won’t remove
Dmaj7           D               Gmaj7

                        Emadd9 (etc…)
Ooh, turn your head away
From the screen, oh people
It will tell you nothing more
Don’t suck the milk of flaccid Bill K.
Public’s empty promise
To the people that the public can ignore
 
This way of life is so devised
To snuff out the mind that moves
Moving with grace the men despise
And women have learned to lose
 
Throw off your shame or be
a slave to the system
 
I see you take another drag
One more lost soul to raise your flag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
Let’s see you take another drag
 
            G			
You like to dance to the rolling		
F#				
Head of the adulteress			
            A5                E5  D5	
You sing in praise of suicide		
G                               			
     We know you’re useless
     F#                       A5      E5   D5
Like cops at the scene of the crime
           G
With your steroids and your feedbag
                         Bb5
And your stable and your trainer
B(b9)                     G#5               G
    I got a mail bomb for you Mister Strong Arm.
 
D7
    Throw out the stones from all the cemetery homes
                                  Bmadd13-   G/B etc.
For the violence of a nation gone by
 
Or the politics of weakness
And the garbage dump of souls
That will now black the sky
 
Their yellow haze and crowds of eyes
Will plug up the mind that moves
Moving with grace the men despise
And women have learned to lose
We’ll share our bodies
In disdain for the system
 
Oh, I see you take another drag
One nation bends to kiss the hag
The sky is a landfill
I see you take another drag
I see you take another drag
I have no fear of this machine!

Hallelujah

Hallelujah Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Capo: 1st fret

[Intro]
C Am C Am
 
[Verse 1]
  C                 Am
I heard there was a secret chord
     C                   Am
That David played and it pleased the lord
    F                G               C        G
But you don't really care for music, do you?
        C                  F           G
Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
    Am                 F
The minor fall and the major lift
    G            E7             Am
The baffled king composing hallelujah
 
[Chorus]
     F           Am          F           C    G   C      Am C Am
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....
 
[Verse 2]
           C                        Am
Well, your faith was strong but you needed proof
    C               Am
You saw her bathing on the roof
    F              G             C            G
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you
    C               F       G
She tied you to her kitchen chair
    Am                        F
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
    G                  E7            Am
And from your lips she drew the hallelujah
 
[Chorus]
     F           Am          F           C    G   C      Am C Am
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....
 
[Verse 3]
C               Am
Baby, I've been here before
     C                       Am
I've seen this room and I've walked this floor
  F             G             C          G
I used to live alone before I knew you
     C                     F      G
I've seen your flag on the marble arch
    Am               F
But love is not a victory march
       G               E7          Am
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
 
[Chorus]
     F           Am          F           C    G   C      Am C Am
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....
 
[Verse 4]
            C                   Am
Well, there was a time when you let me know
       C            Am
What's really going on below
    F             G               C        G
But now you never show that to me do you
      C             F        G
But remember when I moved in you
        Am            F
And the holy dove was moving too
    G               E7            Am
And every breath we drew was hallelujah
 
[Chorus]
     F           Am          F           C    G   C      Am C Am
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....
 
[Verse 5]
      C               Am
Well, maybe there's a god above
    C             Am
But all I've ever learned from love
    F                G           C          G
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you
     C                  F       G
It's not a cry that you hear at night
     Am                 F
It's not somebody who's seen the light
       G               E7          Am
It's a cold and it's a broken hallelujah
 
[Outro]
     F           Am          F           C    G   C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u ....
     F           Am          F           C    G   C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u ....
     F           Am          F           C    G   C
Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelu-u-u-u-jah ....

   D7sus4/C                      D9/A
Uh precious precious silver and gold
    D7sus4/C            D9/A
And pearls in oyster's flesh
D7sus4/C             D9/A             D7sus4/C   D9/A
Drop down we two to serve and pray to love
D7sus4/C              D9/A
Born again from the rhythm
D7sus4/C             D9/A
Screaming down from heaven
D7sus4/C   D9/A
Ageless, ageless
D7sus4/C               D5
and I'm there in your arms......
 
[Chorus]
 
Fmaj9#11
Don't wanna weep for you
 D9/A
Don't wanna know
Fmaj9#11
I'm blind and tortured
     D9/A             Bm/D
The white horses flow

Memories fire

The rhythms fall slowwww

Forget Her

Forget Her Guitar Chords & Lyrics
F/G (or just play F instead)

Intro:
Am Em7 F/G
 
1st verse:
Am
While this town is busy sleeping,
Em
All the noise has died away.
Am
I walk the streets to stop my weeping,
Am                             Em
'Cause she'll never change her ways.
 
Chorus:
Fmaj7
Don't fool yourself,
Fmaj7                         Emadd9
She was heartache from the moment that you met her.
Fmaj7
Ah, my heart feels so still
Fmaj7                        C
As I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
Em                                 Am
   Ooh, I think I've forgotten her now.
 
Intro
 
2st verse:
Am
Her love is a rose, pale and dying.
Em
Dropping her petals in land unknown
Am
All full of wine, the world before her,
Am             Em
Was sober with no place to go.
 
Chorus:
Fmaj7
Don't fool yourself,
Fmaj7                         Emadd9
she was heartache from the moment that you met her.
Fmaj7
My heart is frozen still
Fmaj7                        C
As I try to find the will to forget her, somehow.
Em                           Am
   She's somewhere out there now.
 
Guitar solo
(Am Em)

Am               Em7       F/G       Am
Well my tears falling down as I try to forget,
Am             Em7           F/G         Am
Her love was a joke from the day that we met.
Am         Em7    F/G        Am
All of the words, all of her men,
Am        Em7         F/G           Am
All of my pain when I think back to when.
Am           Em7        F/G          Am
Remember her hair as it shone in the sun,
Am           Em7            F/G             Am
The smell of the bed when I knew what she'd done.
Am            Em7      F/G      E
Tell yourself over and over you won't ever need her again.

Oh,
Fmaj7                                       Emadd9
She was heartache from the day that i first met her.

As i try to find the will to forget you somehow

Lover You Should’ve Come Over

Lover You Should’ve Come Over Guitar Chords & Lyrics
Dsus2 D
Looking out the door I see the rain fall upon the
C                    Em9 Em Em7 Em
 funeral             mourners
Dsus2 D
Parading in a wake of sad relations As their shoes
   C                Em9 Em Em7 Em
 fill up with     water
   C#m7b5                           F#7#5
               And maybe I'm too young
  Bm                 D/A              G6
To keep good love     from going      wrong
Dsus2 D                          C   Em9
But tonight, you're on my mind   so
Em                           Em7  Em
              You'll never know
 
 
Dsus2 D
I'm broken down and hungry for your love With no
        C                Em9 Em Em7 Em
        way to         feed it
D      Dsus2
Where are you tonight?
Dsus2 D                    C           Em9 Em Em7 Em
Child you know how       much I        need it.
 
C#m7b5                     F#7#5
         Too young to hold on
        Bm                D/A          G    F#
And too old to just     break free and run
 
 
[Chorus]
   Bm           Bm11/E                     Em        Em9
      Sometimes a man gets           carried away,
       Bm                        Bm11/E             Em
When he feels like he should be      having his      fun
              Bm                         Em
And much too blind to see the damage he's done
C
Sometimes a man must awake to find that, really,
          Em     Em9   Em7  Ddim/F
He has    no-one...
 
 
  D/F#                                        Gm6
      So I'll wait for you...                  And I'll burn
Aadd9                        G6/B
      Oh will I ever see your sweet return?
Aadd9/C#
      Oh, will I ever learn?

Em                  Dsus2 D          C     Em9
Cause it's not too late.)
 
 
Notes: The Dsus2 D hammer-on and pull-off in the beginning of the verses are actually a lot more than written, but because of the limited space on a single line, they are not included. 

Also, to vary the Em-Em9-Em7 pattern,
you can play them as 075070 (Em9) - 075000 (Em) - 075700 (Em7), and then slide down to the C#m7b5 (042000).
I think Jeff played this way on his live performances, since he is sometimes very high on the neck.
 
The C in "And sometimes a man must awake to find that really..."
I think is a 8-10-10-988 barred chord which slides down to the high em on "no-one".
He also varies with the x35553 C on live performances.
I guess it's up to you to choose which one suits you best.
 
The F#5 is a F#m without the 4-6 notes, so effectively a 244xxx chord.
 
There is another C which is a Cadd9 (3x2013). That is played between the D/Dsus2 and the Em7/9s in the intro.
I have found that a regular C works just as well, but also use this as well as x35553 to vary.
 
The chord progression in "so I wait for you..." part of the verse/pre-chorus ascends the neck,
marking the bass notes on the low E string. Therefore, the D/F# chord is important here.
I ususally play with the bass notes between the G6/B and the Aadd9/C#,
making it G6/B, C bass, D bass, and then Aadd9/C#. The Cmaj7 that follows is 8x9900.

[Verse 1]
Dm
I used to know a little square
                         A
So long ago, when I was small
 
All summer long it had a fair
 
Wonderful fair with swings and all
Dm                 A
I used to love my little fair
    Gm                   A
And at the close of everyday
           D

Dm                A

Last Goodbye

Last Goodbye Guitar Chords & Lyrics
[Verse]
 
Dsus/D                Dsus/D
This is our last goodbye
           Bm            A          Em
I hate to feel the love between us die
           G
But it's over
            D
Just hear this and then I'll go :
      A
 you gave me more to live for,
  G                     Dsus/D
more than you'll ever know.
 
 
[Verse]
 
Dsus/D
This is our last embrace,
       Bm              A           G
must I dream and always see your face
      Em                    D
Why can't we overcome this wall
  A                                      G
Baby, maybe it is just because I didn't know you at all.
 
(Weird chords -- kind of Dm then Gm7, repeated)
 
 
[Chorus]
 
 A7                G
Kiss me, please, kiss me
             A                              G
But kiss me out of desire, babe, and not consolation
               A                          G
You know, it makes me so angry 'cause I know that in time
A7                  G                       Dsus/D
I'll only make you cry, this is our last goodbye.
 
Bm/A/G/A/Bm/A/Em/A/Bm/A/G
 
 
[Verse]
 
D        Bm   A              G
Did you say "no, this can't happen to me,"
D            Bm          A        G
and did you rush to the phone to call?
            D       Bm           A            G
Was there a voice unkind in the back of your mind saying, 
Em/Am                 C               G
"maybe... you didn't know him at all."
          D                              Dmaj7
Well, the bells out in the church tower chime
  D7                              Dmaj7/D
Burning clues into this heart of mine
          C               D                C
Thinking so hard on her soft eyes and the memory 
         D
Of her sighs that, "it's over... it's over..."
 
Dm/Gm7 twice, then A7 G C (last chord left hanging).
 
 
*Note:
The Dsus means D suspended, and it's easy (and nice). It's just a standard D major with
an added 4th note, as follows. 
E |---|-2-|(4)|     The 2/3/1 chord is the D major.  Adding the (4)
B |---|---|-3-|     turns it into a Dsus.
G |---|-1-|---|
D |---|---|---|
A |---|---|---|
E |---|---|---|

[Verse 1]
 
       Fmaj7
Twenty-nine pearls in your kiss, a singing smile,
                                  Fmaj7
Coffee smell and lilac skin, your flame in me.
       Fmaj7
Twenty-nine pearls in your kiss, a singing smile,
                                  Fmaj7
Coffee smell and lilac skin, your flame in me.
         Fmaj7
I'm only here for this moment.
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       Fmaj7                       C     G
I know everybody here wants you.
       Fmaj7                                   C    G
I know every body here thinks he needs you
       Fmaj7                                   C    G
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
        Fmaj7
How our love will blow it all away.
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
Fmaj7
Such a thing of wonder in this crowd,
                                    Fmaj7
I'm a stranger in this town, you're free with me.
        Fmaj7
And our eyes locked in downcast love, I sit here proud,
                                  Fmaj7
even now you're undressed in your dreams with me.
         Fmaj7
I'm only here for this moment.
 
 
[Chorus]
 
       Fmaj7                       C     G
I know everybody here wants you.
       Fmaj7                                   C    G
I know every body here thinks he needs you
       Fmaj7                                   C    G
I'll be waiting right here just to show you
        Fmaj7
How our love will blow it all away.
 
 
[Bridge]
 
           Bb                  F        C
I know the tears we cried have dried on yesterday
    Bb                                     F              C
The sea of fools has parted for us there's nothing in our way, my love
 
 
[Verse 3]
 
Fmaj7
Don't you see, don't you see?
Fmaj7
You're just the torch to put the flame to all our guilt and shame,
Fmaj7
And i'll rise like an ember in your name.
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Fmaj7                   C    G
You know I, you know I,
       Fmaj7                       C   G
I know everybody here wants you.
       Fmaj7                                 C   G
I know everybody here thinks he needs you.
        Fmaj7                                  C   G
I'll be waiting right here just to show you.
                Fmaj7               C    G             Fmaj7
Let me show you that love can rise, rise just like embers.
 
 
[Outro]
 
        C       G        Fmaj7             C      G
Love can taste like the wine of the ages, babe.
      Fmaj7                      C          G
And I know they all looks so good from a distance,
                        Fmaj7
But I tell you I'm the one.
 
             C        G
I know everybody here thinks he needs you,
Fmaj7                 C
Think he needs you
            G        Fmaj7
And i'll be waiting right there just to show you
