CAPO 3 INTRO: (whistling) C F Am G C F Am G C F When sadness fills your heart Am G And sorrow hides the longing to be free C F When things go wrong with each day Am G You fix your mind to 'scape your misery F Your troubled young life C Had made you turn C F G To the needle of death How strange, your happy words Have ceased to bring a smile from everyone How tears have filled the eyes Of friends that you once walked among Your troubled young life Had made you turn To the needle of death One grain of pure white snow Dissolved in blood spread quickly to your brain In peace your mind withdraws Your death's so near your soul can't feel the pain Your troubled young life Had made you turn To the needle of death Your mother stands a'cryin' While to the earth your body's slowly cast Your father stands in silence Caressing every young dream of the past Your troubled young life Had made you turn To the needle of death Through ages, man's desires To free his mind, then release his very soul Has proved to all who live That death itself is freedom for evermore And your troubled young life Had make you turn To the needle of death WHISTLING: C F Am G C F Am G And your troubled young life Had make you turn To the needle of death
