Intro:

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7 x2

Verse 1:

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
I lit my purest candle close to my

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
window hoping it would catch the eye

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
of any vagabond who passed it by

A#m A#m C# C# G# G#
and I waited in my fleeting house.


Verse 2:

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
Before he came I felt him drawing near,

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
as he neared I felt the ancient fear

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
that he had come to wound my door and jeer

A#m A#m C# C# G# G#
and I waited in my fleeting house.


Chorus 1:

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm
Tell me stories, I called to the hobo,

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm
stories of cold, I smiled at the hobo,

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm
stories of old, I knelt to the hobo,

A#m A#m C# C# G# G#
and he stood before me in my fleeting house.


Verse 3:

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
No, said the hobo, no more tales of time,

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
don't ask me now to wash away the grime,

G# G# C#maj7 C#maj7
I can't come in 'cause it's too high a climb,

A#m A#m C# C# G# G#
and he walked away from my fleeting house.


Chorus 2:

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm C#maj7 C#maj7
Then you be damned, I screamed to the hobo,

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm C#maj7 C#maj7
leave me alone, I wept to the hobo,

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm C#maj7 C#maj7
turn into stone, I knelt to the hobo,

A#m A#m C# C# G# G#
and he walked away from my fleeting house.


Ending:

D# D# C# C# Fm Fm C#maj7 C#maj7
