On Susans Floor

	  		



Intro: F 

verse 1: 
                              G 
Like crippled ships that made it 
          F                 C               G 
Through a storm and finally reached a quiet shore 
                                     C 
The homeless found a home on Susan's floor 


verse 2: 

Didn't feel so cold and tired 

Stretched out before her fire 
                                   G 
Rolling smokes and drinking up her wine 
    F          C 
And I remember candlelight 
    F               C                 G 
And singing 'til we could not sing no more 
                                    C 
Then falling warm asleep on Susan's floor 


verse 3: 

Well, now that my song is sweeter 

I think I'd like to greet her 
                                       G 
And thank her for the favours that she gave 
  F          C 
A stranger I came 
   F                 C           G 
My head bowed in the rain to her door 
                                   C 
I sat and sang my songs on Susan's floor 


Bridge: 
       F              G 
In the morning I'd go on 
       F                Em   Dm C 
Buying kingdoms with my songs 
                             G 
Knowing I'd be back in just awhile 
                               C     Cadd9 F G 
Warming in the sunlight of her smile 


Instrumental: C          G    F  C  F  C  G    Dm7  G  C Cadd9 F G 


verse 4: 
      C 
Well, lots of time and songs have passed 

I catch myself just looking back 
                                 G 
Reliving all the wonder of those nights 
       F              C 
That's where I'd be today 
   F          C                G 
If I had only stayed one night more 
                             C 
Sang another song on Susan's floor 


VERSE 5: 
     F                        G 
Like crippled ships that made it 
          F                 C               G 
Through a storm and finally reached a quiet shore 
    Dm7              G               C 
The homeless found a home on Susan's floor 


OUTRO: F  G   F  C   F  Em   Dm7  C
