Bb                  Dm
I walked across an empty land
Cm                         F           F
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
Bb                  Dm
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Cm                      F          F
Sat by the river and it made me complete


Gm                 Dm
Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
Eb                        F              F
I'm getting tired and I need someone to rely on


Bb               Dm
I came across a fallen tree
Cm                     F           F
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Bb               Dm
Is this the place we used to love?
Cm                    F                F
Is this the place that I've been dreaming of


Gm               Dm
Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
Eb                       F             F
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on


Cm                  Dm               Bb
And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Cm             Dm                 Bb
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
Cm                     Dm        Bb
This could be the end of everything
Cm                 Dm             Eb
So why don't we go somewhere only we know
F            Eb       Bb
Somewhere only we know


Gm               Dm
Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
Eb                       F             F
I'm getting old and I need something to rely on
Gm               Dm
So tell me when you're gonna let me in
Eb                       F                F
I'm getting tired and I need somewhere to begin


Cm                  Dm               Bb
And if you have a minute, why don't we go
Cm             Dm                 Bb
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
Cm                     Dm        Bb
'Cos This could be the end of everything
Eb                 Dm     Cm     G         
So why don't we go somewhere only we know
F            Eb       Bb
Somewhere only we know

  2. If anyone was wondering I use the strumming pattern DDUUDU for most of the song, but when they sing,”And if you have a minute, why don’t we go
    Talk about it somewhere only we know
    ‘Cos This could be the end of everything
    So why don’t we go somewhere only we know
    Somewhere only we know”
    for that part I go into just strumming the note once each until you get back to,”Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
    I’m getting old and I need something to rely on
    So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
    I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin.”
    Then you would start the DDUUDU pattern again for that part until you get to the end then I do the single strum once for each chord again.
