E

I sing myself to sleep
A               B

A song from the darkest hour
E

Secrets I can't keep
A             B

Inside of the day

E

I swing from high to deep
A           B

Extremes of sweet and sour
E

Hope that God exists
A        B

I hope I pray



    

E

Drawn by the under tow
A                B

My life is outa' control
E                                A                B

I believe this wave will bear my weight so let it flow

E

Oh sit down

Oh sit down

Oh sit down
A                B

Sit down next to me
E                          A    B

Sit down down down down down in sympathy


Now I relieved to hear
That you've been to some far out places
It's hard to carry on
When you feel all alone

The wisdom that I seek
Has been found in the strangest places
Feels a lot like love
That I feel for you

Now I've swung back down again
And it's worse than it was before
If I hadn't seen such riches
I could live with being poor

Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down down down down down in sympathy

Those who feel a breath of saddness
Sit down next to me
Those who find they're touched by maddness
Sit down next to me
Those who find themselves rediculus

In love in fear in hate in tears
In love in fear in hate in tears
In love in fear in hate in tears
In love in fear in hate 

Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down down in sympathy.

Keep repeating the same E,A,B pattern.


If you are pedantic the chords you are looking for are more along the lines of E,A5,Bsus2 
but it makes little difference.

View Just Lyrics...

I sing myself to sleep
A song from the darkest hour
Secrets I can't keep
In sight of the day
Swing from high to deep
Extremes of sweet and sour
Hope that God exists
I hope, I pray

Drawn by the undertow
My life is out of control
I believe this wave will bear my weight
So let it flow

[Chorus]
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Oh sit down
Sit down next to me
Sit down, down, down, down, down
In sympathy

Now I'm relieved to hear
That you've been to some far out places
It's hard to carry on
When you feel all alone

Now I've swung back down again
It's worse than it was before
If I hadn't seen such riches
I could live with being poor

[Chorus]

Those who feel the breath of sadness
Sit down next to me
Those who find they're touched by madness
Sit down next to me
Those who find themselves ridiculous
Sit down next to me

In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate, in tears
In love, in fear, in hate

Down,
Down

[Chorus: x2]

Down
