Vertigo Smyth – Comfort Me

The standout track for me from this Saturday’s UkeTube was Vertigo Smyth’s Comfort Me.  I’m not the savviest at this chord charting business but Comfort Me seemed pretty simple.  Hopefully I didn’t completely botch it.  Oh, and any help on the lyrics would be appreciated, I basically made these up… UPDATE 7/11: Thanks all, they’re right now.

    Thanks for the chords to Comfort Me, I think its a lovely song and Vertigo wrote it for the uke!
    I like the simplicity of the song and yet its poignant as well.

    hey, thanks for putting that together..
    i think the lyrics to the first verse are more like

    despair is a dreadnought sulking in the bay
    painting my thoughts all battleship grey
    hope its leaving as soon as it can…

    all the rest seems good to me

    Vertigo sent me the lyrics to put up:

    Despair is dreadnought sulking in the bay, painting my thoughts all
    battleship gey,
    hope it’s leaving as soon as it can

    (cos)I have no one left to comfort me….etc

    Taking a walk with windmill grace, learning a way set to disgrace, all the
    memories of things past,

    (and) I have no one left to comfort me…..etc

    Oh very cool. Going to edit the file and toss it back up. Thanks clacksy and Woodshed (and Vertigo Smyth of course).

    (for some reason I just got all these comments today, sorry for the delay).

    Can anyone figure out the chords to Vertigo Smyth’s “Can’t leave well enough alone”?
    It’s my favorite song and I’d love to play it but I can’t figure out the second chord. Maddening!

Got something to say?
