verse 1 
       G                                       C/G 
Let me stay with you a while and tell old, old stories 
        G             D                 G   Gadd11 
Of your oft' electric laughter and your charms 
        G                                           C/G 
How you came out of Montana with a wolf pup at your heels 
      G                 D               G   Gadd11 
And a snow white rabbit huddled in your arms 

tabchorus
C/G In the darkness G In the darkness C/G In the darkness

verse 2 G C/G Remember, hey, those Gold Rush days, how the gold dust in the mud G D G From Main St. leading all the way to Alder G C/G With sunset turned the color of a lover's throat at blush G D G Gadd11 And with moonrise, blazed some new and silver river
tabchorus
C/G In the darkness G In the darkness C/G In the darkness
tab
verse 3 G C/G The minister was bloodless and the preachers were on fire G D G And Mahatmas sang their love songs in nasturtiums G C/G But if he, or they, or any of their masters called my name G D G I was in your holy temple and never heard them
tabchorus
C/G In the darkness G In the darkness C/G In the darkness
tab
Break G C/G G D G G C/G G D G verse 4 G C/G Remember, hey, those Gold Rush days, some Last Chance Gulch saloon G D G You, and I, and all the miners watching G C/G As shadows danced across a screen as quiet as the moon G D G Without sound, their fury signifying all things Verse 5 G C/G The whole town was alive that night as we floated down the street G D G Through fist fights, cowboy poets, parlor women G C/G And the light from the projector seemed to glow within your soul G D G Like an opal throated songbird in its prism
tabchorus
C/G In the darkness G In the darkness C/G In the darkness
tab
Verse 6 G C/G They're tearing down the movies now, not a stone upon a stone G D G All dust is dust no matter how celestial G C/G But I, who tasted hornet juice and honey on the rose G D G What use have I for all their cold memorials? Verse 7 G C/G Still every now and then sometimes when the night sky gets so bright G D G And no Bethlehem of stars could match its burning G C/G I Go out into the fields until I can feel you by my side G D G And my memory is a book of gold thrown open Bridge C/G How you rode a white horse G The queen of the harvest kissed your cheek C/G The boys all took one look G And found that they could no longer speak
tabchorus
C/G In the darkness G In the darkness C/G In the darkness
