PostSubject: Night Comes On   Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:57 am

Verse:

---------- D ------- G -------------- D ------------------
I went down to a place where I knew she lay waiting
- G ---------------------------- A --
under the marble and the snow
---------- D ----------- G ------------- D --------------------
I said mother I'm frightened; the thunder and the lightning
-------------------- G ----------- A--
I'll never come through this alone


Pre-Chorus:

------- G --------- C ----
She said I'll be with you
------- G -------------- C -----
my shawl wrapped around you
------- G ------------ C -------------- G-
my hand on your head when you go

Chorus:

----------- D ----------
And the night comes on
--------------- Am -
it was very calm
---- F ---------------------- C ------------------ G -
I wanted the night to go on and on but she said
--------------------------------------- D ------ G ------ D ----- G ------
Go back .. Go back to the world..

V: We were fighting in Egypt when they signed this agreement
that nobody else had to die
there was this terrible sound; my father went down
with a terrible wound in his side

PC: He said try to go on
take my books; take my gun
and remember my son how they lie

C: And the night came on
it was very calm
I'd like to pretend my father was wrong but you don't
want to lie.. not to the young

V: We were locked in this kitchen
I took to religion
I wondered how long she would stay
I needed so much to have nothing to touch
I've always been greedy that way

PC: But my son and my daughter
climbed out of the water
Crying Papa you promised to play

C: and they lead me away to the great suprise
and it's Papa don't peek; Papa cover your eyes and they hide
they hide in the world..

V: Now I look for her always
I'm lost in this calling
I'm tied to the threads of some prayer

V: saying when will she summon me
when will she come to me
what must I do to prepare

PC: When she bends to my longings
like a willow like a fountain
she stands in the luminous air

C: and the night comes on
and it's very calm
I'll lie in her arms and she says when I'm gone I'll be yours
yours for a song

V: Now the crickets are singing
the vesper bells ringing
the cats curled asleep in his chair

V: I'll go down to Bill's bar
I can't make it that far
I'll see if my friends are still there

PC: Yes here's to the few
who forget what you do
and the fewer who don't even care

C: and the night comes on
and it's very calm
I want to cross over I want to go home but she says
go back... go back to the world..


Not a Dax original of course, but FAR too incredible not to include.

credit to whoever tabbed this originally. also feel free to contact me for text files of any tab since nothing lines up here.
