Burning Of the Midnight Lamp

Year: 1997 - Album: Electric Ladyland

	  		Intr: C F Bb C C7 
 
F 
The morning is dead 
D 
And the day is, too 
B 
There's nothing left here to meet me 
E 
But the velvet moon 
C                G                 G6 G 
All my loneliness I have felt today 
D 
It's a little more than enough 
F                         
To make a man throw himself away 
G              Am G 
And I continue 
                          Am G 
To burn the midnight lamp 
      C G 
Alone 
 
{Intr.} 
 
F 
Now the smiling portrait of you 
D 
Is still hangin' on my frowning wall 
B                                           E 
It really doesn't, really doesn't bother me too much at all 
C 
It's just the ever falling dust 
G                         G6      G 
That makes it so hard for me to see 
D 
That forgotten earring layin' on the floor 
F 
Facing coldly towards the door 
G          Am G 
I continue 
                          Am G 
To burn the midnight lamp 
            C G 
Lord, alone 
 
{SOLO} 
Loneliness is such a drag 
 
{Intr.} 
 
F 
So here I sit to face 
D 
That same old fire place 
B 
Gettin' ready for the same old explosion 
E 
Goin' through my mind 
C 
And soon enough time will tell, 
G                                      G6 G 
About the serpents in the wishing well 
D 
And someone who will buy and sell for me 
F 
Someone to toll my bell 
G              Am G 
But I continue 
                          Am G 
To burn the midnight lamp 
            Am G 
Lord, alone 
(C G) 
Darlin' can't ya hear me callin' you? 
So lonely 
Gonna have to blow my mind 
Lonely
