A               G                    D               A  Asus2
 Just yesterday morning, they let me know you were gone
A             E                      G          Gmaj7
 Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you
A                  G             D                 A  Asus2
 I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
A               E             G          Gmaj7
 I just can't remember who to send it to

D D/C#      D/B      D/E       A  Asus2  A
  I've seen fire and I've seen rain
     D          D/C#        D/B           D/E       A  Asus2  A
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
          D      D/C#         D/B       D/E       A  Asus2  A
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      G      D/F#             Esus4     A7sus2
but I always thought that I'd see you again

          A                  G                    D                A  Asus2
Won't you look down upon me, Jesus, you've got to help me make a stand
A                   E               G          Gmaj7
 You've just got to see me through another day
A          G             D           A  Asus2
 My body's aching and my time is at hand
A            E           G          Gmaj7
 and I won't make it any other way

D   D/C#      D/B      D/E       A  Asus2  A
Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
     D          D/C#        D/B           D/E       A  Asus2  A
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
          D      D/C#         D/B       D/E       A  Asus2  A
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      G      D/F#             Esus4     A7sus2
but I always thought that I'd see you again

     A                     G             D                        A  Asus2
Been walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun
A                    E                     G                   Gmaj7
 Lord knows when the cold wind blows it'll turn your head around
              A                    G                 D                     A  Asus2
Well, there's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things to come
A                 E                  G                   Gmaj7
 Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

D   D/C#      D/B      D/E       A  Asus2  A
Oh, I've seen fire and I've seen rain
     D          D/C#        D/B           D/E       A  Asus2  A
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
          D      D/C#         D/B       D/E       A  Asus2  A
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
      G      D/F#             Esus4     A7sus2
but I always thought that I'd see you baby, one more time again, now
Thought I'd see you one more time again
There's just a few things coming my way this time around, now
Thought I'd see you, thought I'd see you, fire and rain, now (fade out)
