Patti Smith

Key: C
verse 1 

C                    F 
Dead to the world my body was sleeping? 

C                 F 
On my mind was nothin? at all 

C               F 
Come a mist, an air so appealing 

C                          F                 C        F 
I?m here a whisperin', you summoned, I called 


verse 2 

C                            F 
I formed me a presence whose aspect was changing? 

C                            F 
Oh, he would shift, he would not shift at all 

C                          F 
We sat for a while, he was very engaging? 

C                           F              C         F 
And when he was gone, I was gone on a smile
