You can say the soul is gone
G7sus4
the feelings just not there
BbaddC      C/E           F  C/F  Bb/F  C/F
Not like it was so long ago

F
On the empty page before you
G7sus4
You can fill in what you care
BbaddC         C/E             F  C/F  Bb/F  C/F
Try to make it new before you go

F
Take the simple case of the sarge
G7sus4
Who wouldn't go back to war
Bb
Because the hippies tore down
Bb/C                         F  C/F  Bb/F  C/F
everything that he was fighting for

F
Or the lovers on the blanket
G7sus4
The city turned to whores
BbaddC            C/E                  F  C/F  Bb/F  C/F
With memories of green kissed by the sun

F
You can say the soul is gone
G7sus4
And close another page
Bb                Bb/C               F  C/F  Bb/F  C/F
Just be sure that yours is not the one

Bb                    F
And I'm singing for the stringman
Bb              F
Who lately lost his wife
Bb           Dm
There is no dearer friend of mine
C              F
That I know in this life

Bb              F
On his shoulder is a violin
Bb                  F
For his head where chaos reigns
Bb                 Dm
But his heart can't find a simple way
C                   F     C/F  Bb/F  C/F
To live with all those things

F      C/F  Bb/F  C/F
All those things
F         C/F  Bb/F  C/F
He's a stringman
F         C/F  Bb/F  C/F
A stringman

F
All those strings to pull

F  C/F  Bb/F  C/F (x2)
