For Michael Collins, Jeffrey and Me - Jethro Tull

Verse 1

        Gm7 (arpeggio)
Watery eyes of the last sighing seconds blue reflections mute and dim
Beckon tearful child of wonder to repentance of the sin
        Gmsus4          Gm              Gmsus4          Gm
And the blind and lusty lovers of the great eternal lie
         Gmsus4 Gm              Gmsus4          Gm
Go on believing nothing since something has to die
         Gm7sus4  Gm    Gm7sus4 Gm
And the apes          curiosity money power wins
        Eb6sus4         Eb6     F       G
And the yellow soft mountains move under him

D///    C/D/

Chorus

D                                            C        D
I'm with you L.E.M. though it's a shame that it had to be you
D                                            C        D
The mother ship is just a blip from your trip made for two
D                                            C        D
I'm with you boys so please employ just a little extra care
D                                            C         D
It's on my mind I'm left behind when I should have been there
D   G           Gmsus4          Gm
Walking with you
 

Verse 2 (same as verse 1)

And the limp face hungry viewer fight to fasten with their eyes
Like the man hung from the trapeze whose fall will satisfy
And congratulate each other on their rare and wondrous deed
That their begrudged money bought to sow the monkey's seed
And the yellow soft mountains grow very still
Witness as intrusion the humanoid thrill

Chorus

I'm with you L.E.M. though it's a shame that it had to be you
The mother ship is just a blip from your trip made for two
I'm with you boys so please employ just a little extra care
It's on my mind I'm left behind when I should have been there
Walking with you

To end arpeggio Gmsus4 and add A note on high E string
