Then, drums and voice only...

 

 

"Shadows move across the faces

 Of the people we once knew

 And though their hearts are full of sorrow

 The sun inside can still shine through... "

 

 

 

Repeat verses more or less the same to the end...

 

 

Lyrics:

 

 

In the factories and the stations

In the houses of the poor

In the darkest of all places

There is still an open door

 

When you lose the smile you're smiling

When the blues come down on you

You are still a lamp that's shining

So let the sun inside shine through

 

 

Ending:

Repeat to end.

 

 

 

Additional info:

 

 

I thought some finger/hand position info might be helpful.  I have devised my 

own finger code.  So, looking at your left hand, palm up and from left to right;

 

t = thumb - like, duh

i = index - finger you point with

m = middle finger - you shouldn't point with that one ;-)

r = ring finger  - wedding ring, natch

p = pinky - little finger

This is just a suggestion, use whatever fingers you prefer, the middle 

and ring fingers swap duties quite a bit.
