Thru the Glass Darkly
By: Randy Stonehill
xcribed: d. baderman

intro:  G D G Am G

            Am                            G               
1.  I heard God was at the palace doin' a one night stand
     Am                                G          D
So I went out there to see him with my hope in my hand
       Am                        G
He was just a boy of 15, without much to say
            Bm                          C        G
And when he started signing autographs, I walked away

          Am                             G
2.  I was standing on the corner, by the market place
       Am                                  G           D
When a fella with some leaflets shoved one right in my face
        Am                                    G
Well he poked me with his bible like it was a loaded gun
And I said, "Whatever it is you're selling man,
C            G
I don't want none"
             D                       C     G
CH:  All our superstars are suicidal casualties
             Am            Am7             C    G
     And our heroes die in hotel rooms and motorcades
           D                                  C    G
     Oh it seems like all our dreams are only fantasies  
           Am              Bm               C             *1
     And I wonder if we'll learn from the mistakes we made

             Am                  G
3.  I bumped into Mr. Jimmy at a London hotel
       Am                              G           D
And he said let's get together, but he didn't look well
       Am                             G
When I woke up in the morning all the papers read,
Bm                      C              G
Jimmy Hendrix overdosed last night, in bed

             D                       C     G
     All our superstars are suicidal casualties
             Am            Am7             C    G
     And our heroes die in hotel rooms and motorcades
             D                                   C    G
     Well it seems that all our dreams turn into tragedies
           Am              Bm               C             *1
     And I wonder if we'll learn from the mistakes we made

            Am                              G
4.  Now I'm waiting at the bus stop for the bus to arrive
      Am                                   G       D
And I know there must be more to life than staying alive
       Am                              G
Well I don't know where I'm going when I climb in
       Bm                        C          G
But it can't be any emptier than where I've been

     play 2 times
   G      D          G       Am         G

I know absolutely nothing about theory so whatever these
chords are (maybe DaddG D DaddE D ?)

E-|--3--2--0--2--|  and I play this 2 times

Disclaimer: If this is not exactly like Randy's recording -
sorry - I've haven't heard this for many years - think I
learned it off an 8-trk tape, and this is how I play it now.
