Intro: A G D A, A E Gmaj7

A              Em7                 D             A
Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
           E                      Gmaj7
Susan, the plans they made put an end to you
A                 Em7           D               A
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
             E               Gmaj7
I just can't remember who to send it to

Chorus:
D D/C#      Bm7      Bm7/E     A
  I've seen fire and I've seen rain
            D     D/C#        Bm7           Bm7/E     A
  I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
            D      D/C#         Bm7       Bm7/E     A
  I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      G        D6/F#            E7/B    Asus A9
  But I always thought that I'd see you again

Won't you look down upon me Jesus. You've got to help me make a stand
You've just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I won't make it any other way
(chorus)

Been walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn you head around
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things to
come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground
(chorus)
