Capo IV

Townes van Zandt / Townes van Zandt: Delta Momma Blues (1971)

C Em Dm F G7 F C F Em Am F G7 C
C Em Dm F G7
So close and yet so far away,
F C
And all the things I'd hope to say
F Em Am F G7
Will have to go unsaid today, Perhaps until tomorrow.
 
C Em Dm F G7
Your fears have built a wall between
F C
Our lives and all that loving means
F Em Am F G
Will have to go unfelt it seems, And that leaves only sorrow.
F G Em
You built your tower strong and tall,
F G C Em Dm F
Can't you see - it's got to fall someday?
 
You close your eyes and speak to me 
Of faith and love and destiny. 
As distant as eternity - From truth and understanding. 
 
The wind blows cold outside your door, 
It whispers words I've tried before. 
But you don't hear me anymore, You're pride's just too demanding. 
You built your tower strong and tall, 
Can't you see it's got to fall someday? 
 
The end is coming soon, it's plain, 
A warm bed just ain't worth the pain. 
And I will go and you'll remain - With bitterness we've tasted. 
 
A mother's breast, a new born child, 
A poet's tears, a drunken smile. 
I can't help thinking all the while - Their meaning won't be wasted. 
You built your tower strong and tall, 
Can't you see it's got to fall someday?
