Thank You Mario But Our Princess Is In Another Castle
-mike/howardfinkel483

This is the live version w/ guitar. Studio is 1/2 step down. (D --> C#)

D  Cadd9  A   G

D        Cadd9           A    G
I waited here all by myself
D            Cadd9                        A    G
the room was dark and it smelled like sulfur
G             A          D                G
I heard the screams from way down in the darkness
D            A                  D
felt pretty sure my life was over

I kept my hat on just for luck
sang simple tunes the whole night through
I wondered if I'd wake to find myself in flames
as I waited here for you

               A    G
yeah when you came in
D                   G     D    A    D
I could breathe again

I saw some guys dressed up like sorcerers
blue robes that flowed above the ground
they came and went and I was frightened for my life
I tried not to make a sound

just when my solitude was closing in
I heard a howl like screeching tires
and I told you the one thing I know how to say
to the bright ringing drone of eight-bit choirs

yeah when you came in
I could breathe again

Mike/birdguy: This is a chord progression I use on ukulele:

C   D   Em   Am     
C   G   C            

C        G             Em      Am
I waited here all by myself
C            G                        Em      Am
The room was dark and it smelled like sulfur
C           G            Em              C
I heard the screams from way down in the darkness
C             G                   C   (tab on C string: 2, 4)
I felt pretty sure my life was over
C         G                 Em  Am
I kept my hat on just for luck
C           G                     Em      Am
Sang simple tunes the whole night through
C          G              Em             C
I wondered if I’d wake to find myself in flames
C    G               C
As I waited here for you
              C    G              
Yeah when you came in
Em                Am      C   G   C  (tab on C string: 2, 4)
I could breathe again

C   D   Em  Am
C   D   Em  Am
