A chord diagramE minorEm x4


Verse 1:

A chord diagramE minorEm                       A chord diagramD MajorD
Girls, be good to these spirits
A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramD MajorD
Of music and poetry
     A chord diagramE minorEm               A chord diagramD MajorD
And lift the lyre so clear and sweet
A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
They meet with you


Verse 2:

    A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramD MajorD
And as for me this body
         A chord diagramE minorEm         A chord diagramD MajorD
Which is now so arthritic
  A chord diagramE minorEm
I cannot play
    A chord diagramD MajorD           A chord diagramE minorEm        A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramD MajorD
Can hardly even hold the instrument

Chorus:

    A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD
And oh, the soul grows heavy
         A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
With the body
    A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD
And oh, the soul grows heavy
            A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
Without the body


Verse 3:

A chord diagramE minorEm          A chord diagramD MajorD
Some gloomy poems
     A chord diagramE minorEm                   A chord diagramD MajorD
Came from these thoughts
    A chord diagramE minorEm                 A chord diagramD MajorD
And useless we are all born
        A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramC majorC       A chord diagramD MajorD
To lose life like we lose our youth


Chorus:

    A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD
And oh, the soul grows heavy
         A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
With the body
    A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD
And oh, the soul grows heavy
            A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
Without the body

[At this point the song does something odd. The last A chord diagramC majorC stretches out for an extra two beats then goes to A chord diagramD MajorD for
two beats then back into the chorus chords as if nothing happened. I believe it's to illustrate the singer's
succumbing to the Weight of Years, but don't advise including it until you're confident.]

Verse 4:

         A chord diagramE minorEm                A chord diagramD MajorD
And so I stepped in quite clearly
         A chord diagramE minorEm          A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
From my hiding place
   A chord diagramE minorEm                A chord diagramD MajorD
To then suspect that she would grow old and gray
A chord diagramE minorEm     A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramD MajorD
And he despaired in his mortal way and said


Chorus:

    A chord diagramE minorEm      A chord diagramG+G          A chord diagramD MajorD
And oh, the soul grows heavy
         A chord diagramE minorEm    A chord diagramC majorC    A chord diagramD MajorD
