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.
