Verse 1:
Abm                B
Down by the water, under the willow 
Db                  Ebm
Sits a lone ranger, minding the willow 
Abm                    B    Abm
He and his wife, once lived happily 
Db                  Ebm
Planted a seed, that grew through the reeds 

E                            B
Summers and winters, through snowy Decembers 
Ebm              Abm
Sat by the water close to the embers 
E                           B            Ebm       Gb
Missing out the lives that they once had before 

Chorus:
            E
I WOULDN'T LEAVE YOU 
        B
I WOULD HOLD YOU 
         Gb        Dbm
WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES 
            E
WHAT IF YOU NEED ME 
          B
WON'T YOU HOLD ME 
       Ebm        Abm    Dbm
ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY 

Verse 2:
Abm                B
Mr. & Mrs., dreamed of a willow 
Db                  Ebm
Carving their names, into their willow 
Abm                    B    Abm
If he had spoken, love would return 
Db                  Ebm
spoken inside, too soft to be heard 

E                            B
Summers and winters, through snowy Decembers 
Ebm              Abm
Sat by the water, remembering embers 
E                           B            Ebm       Gb
Missing out the lives that they once had before 


Chorus:
            E
I WOULDN'T LEAVE YOU 
        B
I WOULD HOLD YOU 
         Gb        Dbm
WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES 
            E
WHAT IF YOU NEED ME 
          B
WON'T YOU HOLD ME 
       Ebm        Abm    Dbm
ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY 


E  Abm Gb B  Dbm
AHHHHH, AHHHHH...
E  Abm Eb Dbm
AHHHHH, AHHHHH...

B                                 Gb
Somewhere the timing will all come together 
    B                        Gb
The mishaps will turn into sunny Decembers
     E            Gb        Abm             Ebm        Dbm 
The lovers will be able to find their willow  


Chorus: -quietly single strum chords-
Gb             E
I WOULDN'T LEAVE YOU 
        B
I WOULD HOLD YOU 
         Gb        Dbm
WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES 

-Loud-
Gb          E
I WOULDN'T LEAVE YOU 
        B
I WOULD HOLD YOU 
         Gb        Dbm
WHEN THE LAST DAY COMES 
            E
WHAT IF YOU NEED ME 
          B
WON'T YOU HOLD ME 
       Ebm        Abm    Dbm
ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY 
            E
WHAT IF YOU NEED ME 
          B
WON’T YOU HOLD ME 
       Ebm        Abm    Dbm
ON THE LAST DAY, OUR LAST DAY 

E  Abm Gb B  Dbm
AHHHHH, AHHHHH...
E  Abm Eb Dbm
AHHHHH, AHHHHH...
