Seven Rooms Of Gloom (Guitar chord)

"7 Rooms Of Gloom"
(Holland - Dozier - Holland)

Intro/Chorus 1:

Bbm Gb
I see a house, a house of stone
(Seven rooms)
A lonely house 'cause now you've gone
(Filled with gloom)
Abm Emaj7
Seven rooms, that's all it is, seven rooms of gloom
(Just seven rooms of gloom)
Amaj7 D
I live with emptiness
(Filled with emptiness)
Without your tenderness

Verse 1:

Ebm Ebm/Gb
You took the dream I had for us
Abm Ebm/Bb
Turned my dreams into dust
Ebm Ebm/Gb
I watch the phone never rings
Abm Ebm/Bb
I watch the door that never rings
Ebm Ebm/Gb
Bring you back into my life
Abm Ebm/Gb
Turn this darkness into light
Ebm Ebm/Gb
I'm all alone in this house
Ab Ebm/Bb
Turn this house into a home

Cb6 Cb Gb Bb7/D
I need your touch to comfort me
Cb6 Cb Gb Bb7/D
The tender, tender arms that once held me

Chorus 2:

Without your love, your love inside
This house is just a place to run and hide
Seven rooms, that's all it is - seven rooms of gloom
Rooms of emptiness
Without your tenderness

Verse 2:

Don't make me live from day to day
Watching the clock that ticks away
Another day, another way
Another reason for me to stay
I need you here, here with me
I need your loving desperately
I'm all alone, all alone
In this house that's not a home

I miss your love I once had known
I miss your kiss that was my very, very own

Chorus 3:

Empty silence surrounding me
Lonely walls they stare at me
Seven rooms, that's all it is - rooms of gloom
I live with emptiness
Without your tenderness

Verse 3:

All the windows are painted black
And wait right here until you come back
I'll keep waiting, waiting
Until your face again I see

[continue w/unintelligible backing vocals to fade]
