How To Play

The fade out from Funeral For A Friend is just two chords repeated...
 
A   Bbmaj7
 
The introduction to Love Lies Bleeding goes like this...
 
A     C     G     F   G
 
The F and the second G only get half a bar each.
 
VERSE 1
 
    A
The roses in the window box
            E
Have tilted to one side
A
Everything about this house
            Bm
Was born to grow and die
      A                                    Bm    D
Oh it doesn't seem a year ago to this very day
             A
You said I'm sorry honey
           E
If I don't change the pace
  D                         E    F#m
I can't face another day
 
CHORUS
 
              Bm             E
And love lies bleeding in my hand
      F#m                  Bm               E
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man
      F#m                                Bm
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
       C#m
But my guitar couldn't hold you
     D                 Dm
So I split the baaaa-a-ha-a-nd
F#m       E              A          C        G (Introduction here)
Love lies bleeding in my hands
 
VERSE 2
 
  A
I wonder if those changes
            E
Have left a scar on you
     C#m             D
Like all the burning hoops of fire
             Bm                B7
That you and I passed through
         A
You're a bluebird on a telegraph line
                    Bm       D
I hope you're happy now
            A                    E
Well if the wind of change comes down your way girl
       D                             E     F#m
You'll make it back somehow
 
CHORUS
 
              Bm             E
And love lies bleeding in my hand
      F#m                  Bm               E
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man
      F#m                                Bm
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
       C#m
But my guitar couldn't hold you
     D                 Dm
So I split the baaaa-a-ha-a-nd
F#m       E              A          C        G (Introduction here)
Love lies bleeding in my hands
 
(About now Elton does his thing with the piano, and there's a guitar solo
but the chords are the same as for the intro)
 
CHORUS
 
              Bm             E
And love lies bleeding in my hand
      F#m                  Bm               E
Oh it kills me to think of you with another man
      F#m                                Bm
I was playing rock and roll and you were just a fan
       C#m
But my guitar couldn't hold you
     D                 Dm
So I split the baaaa-a-ha-a-nd
F#m       E              A          C        G (Introduction here)
Love lies bleeding in my hands
 
There's more singing over the chorus, and then a guitar solo fade with the chord pattern from the intro.
