BYGONES

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


   intro:      Em  [riff 2x]


               Am
       I.      you left your lover in the rain,

               water rolling off his back.

               but it seeped into his veins

               and made his movie fade to black.

                   F  Em  [intro riffs]
  chorus:      let bygones be bygones.

               let bygones be bygones.


               Am
       II.     how can I turn the other cheek

               when you never do the same?

               how can I ever be that weak

               when I know I'm not to blame?


                   F  Em  [intro riffs]
  chorus:      let bygones be bygones.

               let bygones be bygones.



      --------REPEAT INTRO RIFF 2x (high octaves)--------



                   Am/E                     Am/F - Am/E
  bridge:      let bygones be bygones -
               Am/E                         Am/F - Am/E
               feels like a sacrilege.
                       Am/E                 Am/F - Am/E
               there's too much spilt milk
               Am/E                    Am/F
               under the bridge.
                 Em                         Fmaj7(add -5)/E - Em
               I got all the last straws
                    Em                      Fmaj7(add -5)/E - Em
               from all our yesterdays.
                   Em                       Fmaj7(add -5)/E - Em
               I'm building a scarecrow
                  Em                        Fmaj7(add -5)/E   [one strum]
               to keep the past away.


      --------REPEAT INTRO RIFF 2x (high octaves)--------
         [vamp longer if instrumental solo (sax? harmonica?)]


               Am
       III.    now I'm standing in the sun.

               there's a storm cloud in your eye.

               should I fight or should I run?

               say "I do" or say goodbye?   or -



                   F  Em  [intro riffs]
end chorus:    let bygones be bygones.

               let bygones be bygones.

               let bygones be bygones.

               let bygones be bygones.
