Notes from Erik Strom:
These are not the official lyrics or chords, I haven't found those, but I've tried to transcribe the lyrics from what I hear.
The chords I've written here are fairly simple, but I'll bet there are supposed to be a few 11's and +13's in there, too. If you've got a better suggestion, let me know.
F F If a feeling's born and no one complains Well that's good luck running through young veins And if life is a blessing that brushes the tops of the trees Well it's a short walk in a sweet breeze F7 I will need you, feed you, seed you, plead with you F All for the taste of your sweet love Thelma If a heart is an open memory book That was the chance I took The more I searched, the more shook with Thelma Dm C Last night I slept on a rented pillow Dm C Dm A silver moon above my head C A thirsty dreamless sleep released me Bb And I reached for the phone C F by the side of the bed Now the first time that I saw you I thought "She's beautiful, but she's too young to be caught" People aware of my history Trying to steer you away from me I left a message at your hotel Don't let management poison the well F7 I will need you, feed you, seed you, plead with you F All for the taste of your sweet love Thelma Dm C The phone is ringing and I realize Dm C Dm we are timezones and oceans apart C The words I speak in the middle of my night Bb C F They fall on your yesterday scars If the sun don't shine, the wind don't break the clock don't jump off the wall Thelma, my darling, I will cushion your fall F7 I will need you, feed you, seed you, plead with you F Without the taste of your sweet love Thelma I am only a man who has skirted the edge of despair for a long time now, and I don't care Dm C I watch you sleeping a the hospital bed Dm C Dm The baby curled up in a ball C Winter sunlight hits the family tree Bb C F And everything else becomes nothing at allBack to document index
