In My Darkest Hour - Bob Weir

I'm a big fan of Bob's Blue Mountain. Here's one I have worked out.

CAPO 1

Code: Select all


          A                      D       A
Will you stay with me, will you hold my hand
                             E       A
Will you be my friend in my darkest hour
                                     D         A
Though the fates may frown and the grapes may sour
         C#m              Bm      A
Will you be with me in my darkest hour


     F#m                  A
As I hold you now, I will hold you then
           D                      E
Though the sun goes down and the stars burn out
            F#m               A
Though the bitter cup may be at your lips
        D                      E        A
And we cannot kiss, I’ll still be your love

                      D           A
Well hey, hey, hey, whatcha gonna do
     D               A                 D          E
Well you don’t wanna try to drown the thorns with flowers
          A                       D        A
Well the flowers all fade but the thorns remain
          D    A          E      A
Will you also stay in my darkest hour


A                      D                A
Everywhere I go, the people say no, no, no
                                    E            A   
He’s bad news, born to sin, what a shame, it’s a crime
                               D          A
Hear that whistle blow on the last train gone
         C#m                      Bm       A
And if I catch that train we will both be alone

    F#m                A
Far away, a bell has begun to ring
           D                    E
While the lions roars and the cowards cower
     F#m             A
But, what care I for all these things
           D    A            E       A
If you'll stay with me in my darkest hour



Accordian solo over verse 1 progression



A                           D       A
In the jungle garden of my longest night
          C#m                  Bm          A
When the capture looms and the moon shines bright
          F#m            A
Will you hold me in your arms while I 
      D                 E          A
The ladder climb to the realms of light


                      D           A
Well hey, hey, hey, whatcha gonna do
     D               A                 D          E
Well you don’t wanna try to drown the thorns with flowers
          A                       D        A
Well the flowers all fade but the thorns remain
          D    A          E      A
Will you also stay in my darkest hour
         C#m             E       A
Will you also stay in my darkest hour
