[Pre-verse 2]
                         Cadd9
Sleep in gardens where I play my lute

        Bb            A
where I laid my roots

Dm                         Cadd9     
 Now the clock is stopping faithfully

      Bb       *riff
She's taking me


[Bridge]

E            C     G#            A                  E
Monsieurs at nine,    that is my promise, have some wine

              A
Please, donít run away

E           C     G#         A      E
 Madames at nine,      baby honest have some wine

              A         E
Please, donít run away


[Verse 1] - same progression for all verses

E                         F#               A
Well I thought Iíd take a chance 

                     E        B
and forget about the states

E                     F#       A
Ya I thought Iíd gravitate 

                        E          B
to the hills of central France


[Verse 2]
And so I left the world below
And into the rocks I climbed
Now I'm living the in the cold
But I'm looking for the sign


[Chorus]

E           F#  Aadd9     E       B
 That's the sign   of her love behavior

E           F#  Aadd9               E   B
 That's the sign   that I'm looking for


[Verse 3+4]
And i've seen you in the movies
And I've seen you at the store
And if I stare a little more
Well, that's because you move me

I can see it in your eyes
I can hear it when you talk
Darling when I see you walk
You seem so very nice


     [CHORUS] x2


[Solo]

E F# A E B (2x)


[Verse 5+6]
It sure is cold here in the summer
I haven't got a number
But the sky is very bright
and the sun is very clear

I can smell it in the wind
'Cause I guess that it's the time
And I saw the way you grinned
You were giving me the sign


     [CHORUS] x2

     [BRIDGE] x1


[Ending] x2
E                  A         
 Please, donít run away

end on E
