Only Colombe

written by Gene Clark

 

G
The warm wind will not blow tonight
C
For the the fog enshrouds the landing light
Am                                      G
As she said she might have heard a bell tolling
G
Though a gold ship sails her clouds and dreams
C
Through the crashing seas she finds it seems
Am                                         G
That the shore she's looking for is hardly showing
D                          C
Oh what is this song she's singing
D                   C                      G
Oh could it be for someone, bringing her, her everything
G
Her paralytic agencies
C
twist their tongues into philosophies
Am                                         G
As petite Colombe asks only what she's been stealing
G
The tapestries that drape her walls
C
And the heroes she has witnessed fall
Am                                             G
While the hallway leaves them all blank to the ceiling
D                        C
Oh again this song she's singing
D                      C                         G
Oh could it be for someone, bringing her, her every dream
G
Beneath the deep and broken wall
C
The reflecting glass of time it falls
Am                                             G
Through the crack she said she heard the ocean calling
G
The foghorn cries profanity
C
At the master of insanity
Am                                    G
As she watches ruins, neading me and sobbing
D                        C
Oh again this song she's singing
D                  C                       G
Oh could it be for someone, bringing her, her everything.
