            C      Em        Am    F

    Oh the bitter winds are coming in

            C        Em          Am     F

    And I'm already missing the summer

      C          Em      Am         F

    Stockholm's cold but I've been told

           C         Em                 Am    F

    I was born to endure this kind of weather

     

               C     Em           Am         F

    When it's you I find like a ghost in my mind

            C             Em              G (4)

    I am defeated and I gladly wear the crown

     

    Chorus:

    C (2)                      F (2)

      I'll be your Emmylou and   I'll be your June

       Am (2)                     G (2)

    If   you'll be my Gram and my   Johnny too

             C (2)         F (2)

    No, I'm    not asking     much of you

          Am          G                    C (4)

    Just sing little darling, sing with me

     

          
    C       Em        Am                 F

    Now so much I know that things just don't grow

            C      Em                  Am      F

    If you don't bless them with your patience

              C            Em     Am          F

    And I've been there before I held up the door

        C        Em             Am     F

    For every stranger with a promise

     

        C            Em                 Am            F

    But I'm holding back, that's the strength that I lack

           C               Em            Am    F

    Every morning keeps returning at my window

             C           Em        Am                F

    And it brings me to you and I won't just pass through

             C  Em             G (4)

    But I'm not asking for a storm

     

    Chorus

     

    Bridge:

    Am (2   G (2)  F (2)             C (2)

       And yes I might have lied to you

    Am (2)           G (2)       F (2)                 C (2)

       You wouldn't bene    -   fit from knowing the truth

    Am (2)     G (2)          F (2)   C (2)

       I was frightened but I   held fast

    Am (2)   G (2)   F (2)       C (4)

       I   need you now at long last
