lyrics

The Bean Song / My Solace (with Ukulele chords)

VERSE 1
G
when i'm all washed up along the river
Am
and the storms have weighed me down to shivers
D7
when i'm old and long forgotten
C Cm
when my skin and bones go rotten
G E/G# Am D7
I will find my solace here with you

VERSE 2
G
Never thought I'd be the kind to offer
Am
all my heart so willing to another
D7
it's so new and sort of strange
C Cm
you could say I'm not the same
G Am D7 G - G7
I have found my solace here with you.

REFRAIN:
C
oh, but our days are numbered
G
we're as human as could be
C
but whether it's sun or thunder
G E/G# Am
i'm keeping you with me
Cmaj7
until our days are over
G E7
my love is so true
C D7 G C - G
and I have found my solace here with you.

INTERLUDE
REPEAT VERSE 1 CHORDS

VERSE 3
G
oh don't believe I'll ever leave you lonely
Am
I'm just a girl whose found her one and only
D7
so when I'm old and long forgotten
C Cm
when my final years are comin'
G Am D7 G - G7
I will find my solace here with you.

REFRAIN
C
oh, but our days are numbered
G
we're as human as could be
C
whether it's sun or thunder
G E7 Am
i'm keeping you with me
Cmaj7
until our days are over
D E7
it's magic so true
C D7
that I have found my solace here
G E7
I have found my solace here
C D7 G C - G
i have found my solace here with you.
