Capo on third fret

G    C        Am       Em       Em
I believe in fires at midnight

          Em/G     Em/B           (suggestion from Paco)
          G        G         Am
when the dogs have all been fed.

   G      C    Am      Em     Em
A golden toddy on the mantle

          Em/G  Em/B           (suggestion from Paco)
          G     G         Am
a broken gun beneath the bed.
 
 F      F       C        Am
Silken mist outside the window.

  G        G         G       Am
Frogs and newts slip in the dark

 F        F     C         Am
too much hurry ruins the body.

G        G         G        D
I'll sit easy ... fan the spark



 G       C      Am   Em     Em
Kindled by the dying embers

     Em/G   Em/B           (suggestion from Paco)
     G      G       Am
of another working day.

 G     C             Am        Em    Em
Go upstairs ... take off your makeup

 Em/G       Em/B           (suggestion from Paco)
 G          G      Am
fold your clothes neatly away.

 F        F        C         Am
Me, I'll sit and write this love song

G    G        G      Am
as I all too seldom do

 F       F      C         Am
build a little fire this midnight.

      G       G       G         Dsus2
It's good to be back home with you.
