Dm                   G          F          C            Dm
Ah the days they flew by and the leaves fell from the trees
F                   C                   Bb F            Gm
And many times you came around and many times you slept with me
F                  C                        Bb          F Gm
And every time that we made love you wrote it down in your diary
Lady of ladies

Gm          F      Gm      F       Eb          D
But I would always say to you don't ask about tomorrow
Gm            F       Gm      F          Eb          D
Give what you have take what you need, your time is only now
Eb                         D
Don't try to tie me down to promises
Cm                      D
Live for today, today is all there is
Gm          Eb          D          Gm
And freedom seems to be everything to me

Dm             G            F            C       Dm
I took you down to a party on the night of the fourth of May
F                        C                Bb          F      Gm
And a strange and growing restlessness had hung in the air all day
F                  C            Bb      F          Gm
The need to try and tear down and destroy all that we made
Lady of ladies

Gm                  F    Gm       F      Eb D
You whispered in my ear and asked me if I fancied her
Gm          F      Gm          F          Eb      D
you told me that he'd phoned you when I was in America
Eb                        D
daring each other just to say okay
Cm                        D
swap for tonight didn't I always say
Gm          Cm          D            Gm
that freedom seems to be everything to me
Cm                  D             Gm
And she came and she sat down beside me
Cm             D                  Gm
and you found an excuse to go downstairs
Cm                D       Eb                            D
and she smiled and made the kind of conversation that you do
Cm       D                  Gm
and later on she said my last train has gone
Cm            D                Gm
oh I wonder if you would take me home
Cm                   D
and I found you in the hallway
Gm                                    D
and told you that was all that I would do
Eb                         D
just run her home and it’s through
Cm                   D
oh I thought that you knew
Gm            Bb F                   Eb
but I must confess, I laid my head on her breast
Gm             F             Eb
and it seemed so hard to pull it away
Gm                  Bb          F                      Eb
her hand touched my hand and her eyes were offering the rest
Gm             F                  Eb
if it wasn't for you oh I would have stayed
Gm             F                Gm                  F    Gm
but I came back home through the morning to find you lying awake
Gm                F             Gm                      D
and I knew all at once what you'd done and I heard myself say

(1 Down stroke per beat)
why did you have to sleep with him anyone else wouldn't have mattered half as much as him

Dm             G          F          C      Dm
I don’t want to touch you somehow you feel unclean
F                C                   Bb    F       Gm
I just wish that you were five hundred miles away from me
F                        C                Bb      F    Gm
Don't talk at all, don't start to cry just pick up your things
Lady of ladies
Gm            F      Gm      F       Eb          D
And though I'd always told myself that when our time ended
Gm      F       Gm    F      Eb            D
I'd walk away with no regrets and no attempts to stay
Eb                        D
Somehow it doesn't seem to be that way
Cm                      D
I find I'm needing every word you say
Gm          Cm          D            Gm
This freedom seems to be everything to me
Cm      D          Gm             Cm            D          Gm
And you went up to Cambridge and you stayed in your brother's room
Cm                D          Eb                   D
And you wrote me a letter and sent it the same afternoon
Cm       D            Gm                Cm      D       Gm
You said I just want to hurt myself. Oh I need you so badly now
Cm             D            Gm                            D
And you told me without you there seems to be no horizon at all
Cm                  D      Cm             D
Just no crack in the wall, no place lower to fall
Gm       F             Gm       Gm       F             Gm
"Hey don't leave me, don't leave me, the shapelessness of the dawn
Gm      F       Gm                   D
Floods above and beneath me, I just can't go on
Cm                              D          Eb                   D
And I had to walk right into the trap, and I had to say please come back
Gm                   F       Gm                  D
Though I felt all the while my resistance slipping away

(1 Down stroke per beat)
Why did I have to fall for you anyone else wouldn't have hurt me half as much as you

About Al Stewart

Al Stewart songs
Alastair Ian Stewart (born 5 September 1945), known professionally as Al Stewart, is a Glasgow-born English singer-songwriter and folk-rock musician who rose to prominence as part of the British folk revival in the 1960s and 1970s. He developed a unique style of combining folk-rock songs with delicately woven tales of characters and events from history. Stewart is best known for his 1976 hit single "Year of the Cat", the title song from the platinum album of the same name. Though Year of the Cat and its 1978 platinum follow-up Time Passages brought Stewart his biggest worldwide commercial successes, earlier albums such as Past, Present and Future from 1973 are often seen as better examples of his intimate brand of historical folk-rock – a style to which he has returned in recent albums. Stewart was a key figure in British music and he appears throughout the musical folklore of the revivalist era. He played at the first-ever Glastonbury Festival in 1970, knew Yoko Ono before she met J
