Midas Shadow

Al Stewart

 Dm7CBb
 You've got your ticket and your hotel keys
 Gm7Am7Dm7
And your overnight bag at your feet
 Dm7CBb
 YOu're looking down on the tropical trees
 Gm7Am7Dm7
While the Spanish maids pick up the sheets
 FCFC
 Conquistador in search of gold
 Dm7BbGm7
 For all the jack-daw reasons
 Dm7CBb
 The Midas shadow that's so hard to please
 Gm7Am7Dm7
 Follows wherever you go.

Gm7 Am Dm7 x2

 Dm7CBb
 Nothing ventured, nothing gained they said
 Gm7Am7Dm7
So you played for the winner takes all
 Dm7CBb
 And tossed the dice high up and craned your head
 Gm7Am7Dm7
To see how the numbers would fall
 FCFC
 You stole the game so easily
 Dm7BbGm7
 Your luck ran with the seasons
 Dm7CBb
 But still the shadow that the night won't free just
 Gm7Am7Dm7
 Follows wherever you go.

Gm7 Am Dm7 x2

Solo:
 Gm7Am7Dm7

 Dm7CBb
 Another day, another boarding card,
 Gm7Am7Dm7
As you wait for your seat on the 'plane
 Dm7CBb
 The movie runs but you're still working hard
 Gm7Am7Dm7
And you don't touch your food or champagne
 FCFC
 I know that when your well runs dry
 Dm7BbGm7
 Yuu'll want to know the reason
 Dm7CBb
 The empty night will bring you no reply
 Gm7Am7Dm7
 As it follows wherever you go.
