] in that order. You play these with the right hand and with the A|  left hand you play base notes. So in the left hand you play the note f, then right B|  hand plays the chord of F, then left hand plays note d, then right hand plays the N|  chord of [DmDm

C|  What beautiful lines O|  How full of life M|  After thousands of years, what a face to wake up to. -|  He holds back a sigh T|  As she touches his arm; A|  She dusts off the bed where 'til now he's been sleeping, B|  Under miles of stone N|  The dry fig of his heart A|  Under scarab and bone B|  Starts back to its beating... B|   E|  She carries him home R|  In a beautiful boat, .|  He watches the sea from a porthole in stowage C|  He can hear all she says O|  As she sits by his bed M|  And one day his lips answered her -|  In her own language. T|  The days quickly pass A|  He loves making her laugh B|  The first time he moves it's her hair that he touches N|  She asks "Are you cursed?" A|  He says "I think that I'm cured," B|  Then he talks of the Nile and the girls in bull rushes... B|   E|  In New York he is laid R|  In a glass covered case .|  He pretends he is dead C|  People crowd round to see him O|  But each night she comes round M|  And the two wander down the halls of the tomb -|  That she calls a museum T|  Often he stops to rest A|  But then less and less B|  Then it's her that looks tired N|  Staying up asking questions A|  He learns how to read B|  From the papers that she is writing about him B|  Then he makes corrections E|  It's his face on her book R|  More and more come to look .|  Families from Iowa C|  Upper West-Siders O|  Then one day it's too much M|  He decides to get up -|  And as chaos ensues he walks outside to find her T|  She is using a cane A|  And her face looks too pale B|  But she's happy to see him N|  As they walk he supports her A|  She asks "Are you cursed?" B|  But his answer is obscured B|  In a sandstorm of flashbulbs and rowdy reporters... E|   R|  Such reanimation .|  The two tour the nation C|  He gets out of limos O|  He meets other women M|  He speaks of her fondly -|  Their nights in the museum T|  But she's just one more rag now he's dragging behind him A|  She stops going out B|  She just lies there in bed N|  In hotels in whatever towns they are speaking A|  Then her face starts to set B|  And her hands start to fold B|  Then one day the dry fig of her heart stops its beating... E|   R|  Long ago on the ship .|  She asked, "Why pyramids?" C|  He said "Think of them as an immense invitation." O|  She asked "Are you cursed?" M|  He said "I think that I'm cured." -|  Then he kissed her and hoped T|  That she'd forget that question... A|

Ok, at the top of the tab I have put in the 4 chords used in their correct order, then after the tab I've tried to explain how to add the left hand base notes into the melody. At the very bottom beneath the lyrics there are diagrams of all the 4 chords. I hope this helps, Max.

Can you please include the chords used in this song (not the code, just the chords)?

I've read the explanation of the code but was not able to comprehend it. Is the code read from the left to right, top to bottom? Is it read one line at time or several at once?
