Song

  Dm       Gm/D    Dm
When I'm gone no need to wonder
Gm/D
if I ever think of you
Dm       Asus4/D  A/D
the same moon shines
Dm       Asus4/D  A/D   Dm  
the same wind blows   for    both of us
Asus4/D  A
and time is but a paper moon
Gm6/D   A7 (play notes from intro)
be not gone  
    Dm       Gm/D   Dm
Though I'm gone   it's as though
Gm/D
I hold the flower that touches you
Dm       Asus4/D  A/D
a new life grows
Dm      Asus4/D  A/D   Dm  
the blossom knows  there's no one else
Gm/D
could warm my heart as much as you
Gm6/D   A7 (play notes from intro - there are one or two notes less however)
be not gone
   D       G/D    D/F#  D      G/D    D
Let us cling together as the years go by
G      A7      D    A7sus4
oh my love my love
A7      D
In the quiet of the night
A/C#    G/B       G/A  G
let our candle always   burn
D/A         A7sus4    A7      D       A7sus4  A7
let us never lose the lessons we have learned.

the way you've come to think of me
Dm          Asus4/D  A/D
the nights grow long

but dreams live on           just close your pretty eyes

and you can be with me
