Key: Am
Am 
    There's a grief that can't be spoken. 
                           C 
There's a pain goes on and on. 
                      Dm 
Empty chairs at empty tables 
         E                  Am 
Now my friends are dead and gone. 

Am 
    Here they talked of revolution. 
                          C 
Here it was they lit the flame. 
                        Dm 
Here they sang about `tomorrow' 
       E            Am 
And tomorrow never came. 

          C    C7      F 
From the table in the corner 
           Cm7     F7     Bb 
They could see a world reborn 
          Ab        Ab7    Eb 
And they rose with voices ringing 
       Bb        A 
I can hear them now! 
          Dm         Dm7      Bb 
The very words that they had sung 
   Gm        G7       F 
Became their last communion 
C                     C6      Am 
    On the lonely barricade at dawn. 

Am                                             
    Oh my friends, my friends forgive me 
                         C 
That I live and you are gone. 
                               Dm 
There's a grief that can't be spoken. 
           E               C#m 
There's a pain goes on and on. 

C#m  
    Phantom faces at the window. 
                        E 
Phantom shadows on the floor. 
                       F#m 
Empty chairs at empty tables 
           Ab                  C#m 
Where my friends will meet no more. 

C#m 
    Oh my friends, my friends, don't ask me 
                         E 
What your sacrifice was for 
                      F#m 
Empty chairs at empty tables 
           Ab                 C#m       C#m7       C#m6       C#m 
Where my friends will sing no more.
