I'm goin' down Geneva,

Give me a helping hand.
         E7
It's not easy baby,
D7                   A     E7
 Living on the exile plan.

Verse 2:

A
 Down on the bottom,
D7                      A
 Down to my new pair of shoes.
D7
 Down on the bottom,
                       A
Down to my new pair of shoes.
    E7
I'm down by the lakeside,
D7                      A     E7
 Thinking 'bout my baby blue.

Verse 3:

             A
Last night I played a gig in Salzburg,
D7                      A
 Outside in the pouring rain.
             D7
Last night I played a gig in Salzburg,
                       A
Outside in the pouring rain.
          E7
Flew from there to Montreux,
D7                            A     E7
 And my heart was filled with pain.

Look out my window,

 Back at the way things are.

Look out my window pane,

Back at the way things are.
            E7
Just wonder how,

 How did things ever get this far?

Verse 5:

      A
Vince Taylor, used to live here;

 Nobody's ever heard of him.

Vince Taylor used to live here,
             A
But nobody's heard of him.
(Ain't that a shame?)

Just who he was,
D7                  A   E7
 Just where he fits in.

He was goin' down Geneva,

 Living on the exile plan.

Vince Taylor, used to live here;

 Nobody's ever heard of him.

Vince Taylor used to live here,
             A
But nobody's heard of him.
(Ain't that a shame?)

Just who he was,

 Just where he fits in.

Am7  Bm7  G

Verse 1:

Em
 You came to see me,
         C
When the moon was new,
Em
 Saw you standin',
       C
In the pouring rain,
Em
 Left my message,
       C
On the window pain;

Am7          Bm7      Cmaj7
 Back on the street a-gain,
Am7          Bm7    Cmaj7
 Back on the beat a-gain,

I'm back on the top a-gain.

Verse 2:

Em
 Saw me climbing to,
    C
The top of the hill,
Em
 You saw me meeting with,
    C
The fools on the hill.
Em
 Learned my lesson,
      C
And I had my fill.

Am7        Bm7    Cmaj7
 Learnt it all in vain,
Am7              Bm7   Cmaj7
 Went through it all a-gain,

Now I'm back on the top a-gain.

Bridge 1:

D
 Always strivin', always climbing,
       C
Way be-yond my will.
D
 Same old sensation;
                 C
Isolation at the top of the bill.

D
 Always seeming, like I'm moving,
        C
But I'm really going slow.
D
 What do you do,
When you get to the top
            C
And there's nowhere to go?

Verse 4:

Em
 Just how I get there,
        C
Will be anybody's guess,
Em
 With all the so called,
          C
Trappings of success.
Em
 Left all the deadbeats,
       C
On the top of the hill.

Am7       Bm7     Cmaj7
 Too busy raisin' Cain,
    Am7         Bm7      Cmaj7
I'm back on the street a-gain,

I'm back on the top a-gain.

Cmaj7  G (x2)

Verse 1:

          Am
I saw you standing with wind,
        Fmaj7        Cmaj7  G
And the rain in your face.
             Am
And you were thinking,
                        Fmaj7
'Bout the wisdom of the leaves,
          Cmaj7  G
And their grace.
                             Fmaj7  G
When the leaves come falling down,
In September,
                                  Cmaj7  G
When the leaves come falling down.

Verse 2:

       Am
And at night the moon is shinning,
     Fmaj7                Cmaj7  G
On a clear cloudless sky.
             Am
And when the evening shadows fall,
        Fmaj7              Cmaj7  G
I'll be there by your side.
                             Fmaj7  G
When the leaves come falling down,
In September,
                                  Cmaj7  G
When the leaves come falling down.

Bridge 1:

Dm7              Em7
 Follow me down, follow me down,
F                       G
 Follow me down, to the place,
                          Cmaj7
Beside the garden and the wall.

Dm7              Em7
 Follow me down, follow me down,
       F
To the space before,
    G                Cmaj7  G
The twilight and the dawn.

Verse 3:

        Am
Oh, the last time I saw Paris,
       Fmaj7          Cmaj7  G
In the streets in the rain,
         Am
And as I walk along the boulevards,
     Fmaj7       Cmaj7  G
With you, once a-gain.
                             Fmaj7  G

 By the mansion on the hillside,

 Red sports car comes,

 Driving down the road.
          C/B         Am

 Where the roses are in bloom.
                      C/B    Am
Looking out at the At-lantic ocean,

 And in her head she hums this tune.

Verse 3:

 Thank god the dark nights,

 Called him Lucifer and frowned.
                  C/B      Am

Shot him down to the ground.

 Even when he makes the rounds,

F                           Dm
 There's been no two ways a-bout it;

 High summer's got him low down.

 Checked in to the tiny village,

 By the lakeside,

 Settled down to start a-new.
                  C/B  Am
Far away from the poli-ticians,
F        G           C   F, C
 And the many chosen few.

Verse 7:

C                  C/B      Am
 Far away from the jealousy factor,

That was tearing him a-part.

 And everyone that played their part.

I miss you so much I can't stand it,
              G        Bm          D
Seems like my heart is breaking in two.

             G   Bm             C
My head says no, but my soul de-mands it,
             G  D  C           G
Everything I do re-minds me of you.

While the rain keeps pouring down,
Bm         D
 My window too.

              G
When will the pain,
Bm             C
 Recede to the darkness,
                   G
From whence it has come?

 And I'm feeling so blue.

Sometimes it feels like,
D             G     G7
 I'm going to hell.

              C
Sometimes I'm knocking,
              Bm
On your front door,
                 C
But I don't have nothing,
D   C       G
 To sell no more.

Verse 3:

G
 Seems like the spirit,
Bm             C
 Is pushing me onwards,
            G
I'm able to see,
Bm                        D
 Where I tripped and went wrong.

                  G
I'll just have to guess,
Bm                       C
 Where my soul will find comfort.

And I miss you so much,

 When I'm singing my song.

 See you've got the new bi-ography,
F                       G
 Where did they get the info from?
C                     Am
 Same as before; some so-called friends,
F                  G
 Who claim to have known me then.

Verse 2:

C                               Am
 How come they've got such good memories,
     F               G
When I can't even re-member last week?
C                              Am
 Got to question where they're coming from,
F                                G
 What knowledge of me is it that they speak?

Bridge 1:

   C         Am
So far away, way back when,

The people that claim to have known me then.

 They're not on my wavelength,
         Am
And it's such a shame,
F                           G
 That they have to play the name game.

    C                 Am
The fame game, oh the name game.

C                   Am
 Reinvented all the stories they know,
F                G
 Give them all a different slant.
C                               Am
 What is it that they're really looking for?
F                    G
 Just a hobby on the internet.

Break:

Am
 If they didn't really know me way back,
             F              G
How can they know me now in any respect?

Am
 It's a pity they don't feel the pain,
          F
That they should pay the price,
   G
To play, to play...

Chorus 3:

    C                 Am
The fame game, oh the name game.
       Am
Oh the name game,

10...GOLDEN AUTUMN DAY... by Van Morrison
-------------------------................

*from 'Back On Top' (1999)*


Intro:

F  Am, Bbmaj7 (x2)

Verse 1:

       F
Well I heard the bells ringing,
      Am
I was thinking about winning,
        Bbmaj7
In this God forsaken place.

        F
When my confidence was well,
       Am
Then I tripped and I fell,
      Bbmaj7
Right flat on my face.

        F
Now I'm standing erect,
      Am
And I feel like coming back,
        Bbmaj7
And the sun is shining gold.

      F
Put a smile on my face,
         Am
Get back in the human race,
        Bbmaj7
And get on with the show.

Bridge 1:

        C
And I'm taking in,
           Bbmaj7
The Indian Summer,
        C
And I'm soaking it,
         Bbmaj7
Up in my mind.
            C
And I'm pre-tending,
               Bbmaj7
That it's para-dise,

Chorus 1:

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    C
On a golden Autumn day.

Verse 2:

       F
In the wee midnight hour,
      Am
I was parking my car,
        Bbmaj7
In this dimly lit town.

         F
I was at-tacked by two thugs,
    Am
Who took me for a mug,
              Bbmaj7
And shoved me down on the ground.

         F
And they pulled out a knife,
      Am
And I fought my way up,
        Bbmaj7
As they scarpered from the scene.

             F
Well this is no New York street,
               Am
And there's no Bobby on the beat,
                 Bbmaj7
And things ain't just what they seem.

Bridge 2:

        C
And I'm taking in,
           Bbmaj7
The Indian Summer,
        C
And I'm soaking it,
         Bbmaj7
Up in my mind.
            C
And I'm pre-tending,
               Bbmaj7
That it's para-dise,

Chorus 2:

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    C
On a golden Autumn day.

Verse 3:

          F
Who would think this could happen,
     Am
In a city like this?
              Bbmaj7
Among Blake's green and pleasant hills.

       F
And we must remember,
      Am
As we go through September,
            Bbmaj7
Among these dark satanic mills.

           F
If there's such a thing as justice,
        Am
I could take them out and flog them,
       Bbmaj7
In the nearest green field.

       F
And it might be a lesson,
       Am
To the bleeders of the system,
        Bbmaj7
In this whole society.

Bridge 3:

        C
And I'm taking in,
           Bbmaj7
The Indian Summer,
        C
And I'm soaking it,
         Bbmaj7
Up in my mind.
            C
And I'm pre-tending,
               Bbmaj7
That it's para-dise,

Chorus 3:

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.

(Bbmaj7)            F    Bbmaj7
 On a golden Autumn day,
                   F    Bbmaj7
On a golden Autumn day.
