        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
