GUEST,Pavel From Russia Songs About Vietnam Part II (101* d) Lyr/Chords Add: HELPLESSLY HOPING (CS&N) 28 Feb 10


Hi all!
That's me again.
Another one VN era song.
"Helplessly Hoping" by Crosby, Stills & Nash.
From their first Album "C,S & N", 1969.

INTRO:Am7 C G D


Am
Helplessly hoping,
    C                   G
Her harlequin hovers nearby.
G          D    Am            
Awaiting a word, gasping at glimpses
   C                      G
of gentle true spirit, he runs,
G                D
wishing he could fly,
       Am7               C       G   D
only to trip at the sound of good-bye.


Am
Wordlessly watching,
   C                         G
he waits by the window and wonders,
                   D
at the empty place inside.
Am                     C
Heartlessly helping himself to her
               G
bad dreams, he worries..
                   D       Am7 C    G
Did he hear a good-bye, or even hel..lo?

CHORUS:

Am/G
They are one person, they are two alone.
                                     Dm/F C
They are three together, they are for each other.



Am                            C
Stand by the stairway, you'll see something
                G                      D
certain to tell you, confusion has its cost.
Am                     C                      G
Love isn't lying..it's loose in a lady who lingers
             D       Am7            C    G
saying.. she is lost and choking on hel..lo.


CHORUS:
Am/G
They are one person, they are two alone.
                                     Dm/F C    G
They are three together, they are for each other.
