----------------------.................

*from 'Reach Out' (1967)*

(modified from Andrew Roger's original tab)

*CAPO 1st FRET*

(Original Key: Bbm)

Chorus 1:

Am                F

I see a house, a house of stone,

 (Seven...        rooms),

                               Em7

A lonely house 'cos now you've gone.

(Filled...                with gloom).

     Gm

      Seven rooms,

(Just seven rooms, that's all it is,

               Ebmaj7

Seven rooms of gloom.

         ...Of gloom).

      Abmaj7    C#            F

I live with emptiness, without your tenderness.

(Filled with emptiness).

Verse 1:

      Dm                            Gm          Dm

You took the dream I had for us; turned my dreams into dust.

     Dm                              Gm              Dm

I watch the phone; never rings, I watch the door that never rings.

   Dm                           Gm            Dm

Bring you back into my life; turn this darkness into light.

          Dm                            Gm           Dm

I'm all a-lone in this house, turn this house into a home.

Bridge 1:

Bb6          Bb       F          A7

I need your touch to comfort me,

Bb6                 Bb         F            A7

The tender, tender arms, that once held me.

Chorus 2:

             Am                 F

Without your love, your love in-side,

            (Seven...           rooms),

                                      Em7

This house is just a place to run and hide.

(Filled...                       with gloom).

     Gm

      Seven rooms,

(Just seven rooms, that's all it is,

               Ebmaj7

Seven rooms of gloom.

         ...Of gloom).

   Abmaj7    C#            F

Rooms of emptiness, without your tenderness.

(Rooms of emptiness).

Verse 2:

              Dm                                 Gm                 Dm

Don't make me live from day to day, watching the clock that ticks a-way.

        Dm                        Gm               Dm

Another day, another way, another reason for me to stay.

           Dm                             Gm                 Dm

I need you here, here with me, I need you darling, desperate-ly.

    Dm                            Gm                 Dm

I'm all alone, all alone, in this house that's not a home.

Bridge 2:

Bb6          Bb      F              A7

I miss your love, I once had known.

Bb6          Bb                F              A7

I miss your kiss, that was my very, very own.

Chorus 3:

Am                  F

Empty silence, sur-rounding me,

(Seven...           rooms),

                            Em7

Lonely walls, they stare at me.

(Filled...             with gloom).

      Abmaj7    C#            F

I live with emptiness, without your tenderness.

(Filled with emptiness).

Verse 3:

        Dm                                        Gm                   Dm

All the windows are painted black, and wait right here, until you come back.

          Dm                           Gm            Dm

I'll keep waiting, waiting, until your face, again I see.

Outro:

Dm, Gm  Dm
