Brothers Brother: Sorrow

Table of Contents

Maggie is a golden retriever. We got her at 8 weeks. For months, the only thing that would settle her down was music. We had a play list for her. It started with a song that went,

"Sorrow, only sorrow.

It's the only thing that cares for me."

The perfect soundtrack for a puppy fighting to stay awake. She was often asleep within 30 seconds.

Lyrics with chords

[Verse 1]

Bb                                Cm
So it goes that autumn leaves are falling

F                               Bb
Soft upon the earth and winding streets

Bb                                  Cm
There they paint the sidewalks I am walkin'

F                               Bb
I sing alone and lonely, that's me

[Bridge]

?                         Bb
Once I had a life full of adoring

Cm                               Bb
I fell in love and lord it was a shame

    ?                              Bb
One day she up and left me without warnin'

Cm                                 F
Now I walk the world and sing this refrain

[Chorus]

Bb           G
Sorrow, only sorrow

Cm                                 F
It's the only thing that cares for me

Bb           G
Sorrow, only sorrow

         Cm        F
Leave me be, leave me be

[Verse 2]
Bb                             Cm
When the sun is setting in the valley

F                                 Bb
And all the angels whisper to the plains

Bb                            Cm
Though my heart is weary I am singing

F                                  Bb
That I might find that everlasting day

[Bridge]

?                            Bb
I could sail a wish upon the river

Cm                                Bb
To float upon the ripples and the waves

?                            Bb
Hoping that someday it might deliver

Cm                         F
Someone to wash my sorrows away

[Chorus] x 3

Dog-oriented lyrics with chords

[Verse 1]

Bb                         Cm
So it goes the eyelids they are fallin'

F                               Bb
Soft upon the bed and crumpled sheets

Bb                                  Cm
There I dream of sidewalks I am walkin'

F                               Bb
I lie alone, foresaken, that's me

[Bridge]

?                         Bb
Once I had a life full of adoring

Cm                               Bb
I fell asleep and lord it was a shame

    ?                              Bb
One day they up and "downed" me without warnin'

Cm                                  F
Now I mourn the world and sing this refrain

[Chorus]

Bb           G
Sorrow, only sorrow

Cm                                 F
It's the only thing that cares for me

Bb           G
Sorrow, only sorrow

         Cm        F
Leave me be, leave me be

[Verse 2]
Bb                             Cm
When the sun is setting in the valley

F                                 Bb
And all the angels whisper to the plains

Bb                            Cm
Though my heart is weary I am singing

F                                  Bb
That I might run around again some day

[Bridge]

?                            Bb
I could sail a wish upon the river

Cm                                Bb
To float upon the ripples and the waves

?                            Bb
Hoping that someday it might deliver

Cm                         F
Someone to wash my sorrows away

[Chorus] x 3
