 No sweeping exits, or off stage lines

 Could make me feel bitter, or treat you unkind

 I know I've dreamed you,  a sin and a lie
Am          C      D G  Ga11 G               D  Dsus2 D
 I have my freedom,   but I don't have much time

 Faith has been broken,  tears must be cried

 Let's do some living,  after we'll die

    This looks fairly simple. And it would be nice to be able to play this myself. Would you consider this a beginner song? I really do need to get back into playing the guitar. It has been ages. Great post for a great Stones song.

      It’s not a beginner song, as it contains some bar chords. It’s not too hard either. I would say it’s between intermediate and beginner 😉 Great song indeed.
