1. This old house is falling down around my ears,

             C                 G                D

    I’m drowning in a river of my tears.

               G                                                   D

    When all my will is gone, you hold me sway,

         C                      G          - D              G

    I need you at the dimming        of the day.

 

              D                                                    A

    You hold me like the moon pulls on the tide,

              D                                                 A - D - G - C

    you know just where I keep my better si…….……...de.

2. When days come to keep us far apart,

          C                      G                      D

    a broken promise, or this broken heart.

             G                                                D

    Now all the morning birds wheeled away,

         C                      G          - D             G

    I need you at the dimming       of the day.

 

      D                                                           A

    Come the night, you’re the only what I want,

      D                                                           A - D - G - C

    come the night, you could be my confida…………….nt.

 

        G                                              D

3. I see you on the street, in company,

              C                             G                             D

    why don’t you come and ease your mind with me ?

           G                                            D

    I’m living for the night we steal away,

         C                      G          - D              G     - C

    I need you at the dimming        of the day.

                 G                      D               C    G

    Yes, I need you at the dimming of the day.
