Esus2.................................Amaj13
"Would you like to go out tonight?
...................Esus2 
said Tristan to Iseult.
........Amaj13
"It's a lovely night
Esus2.............Amaj13
to go to the Odeon;
..................Esus2 
sit in the back row.
Amaj13...........Esus2 
Sick of staying in�"

So they threw on some clothes,
walked slowly down the street,
lit by lantern light,
through the market square,
studied the marquee,
bought two tickets and some popcorn.

B7sus4...................Amaj13
And on the screen the hero stands,
B7sus4............Amaj13
the female lead, hand in hand,
......F#m7
and says,
.........B7sus4 
"God I love you,
...... Amaj13
but you trouble me."
........................Esus2
She pushes him away.

And as the credits role,
Tristan turned to Iseult,
said, "What did ya think?"
"It was okay, I guess.
That story"s pretty old.
It's a bit cliched and hackneyed, I thought; I thought."

And back out on the street
they stopped for some ice cream.
Talking quietly,
there was nobody
in the room in which they sat,
as he reached across the table.

And just as their fingers caught,
timidly, he whispers to her
and says, "God I love you, but you trouble me."
Said Tristan to Iseult.
Said Tristan to Iseult.
Said Tristan to Iseult. 

That's basically it. There's more to it, but just listen to
it and play it a few times and the pieces should fall into place.

It's a really fun song to play, and I hope you enjoy it as
much as I do.
