Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

A Fond Farewell  Ari Hest

[C]My mother once told me
[Esus]The thicker your ski[E]n,
[A7sus]The better off you’ll be[A7]
When this world brings you down [dm]
[Dm/G]It’s trying to control m[/G#]e
[Am]Leave me without hope   [dm7]
[F]In the past I’ve been burned
[G]But I’ve lived and I’ve learned

[C]‘Neath the shelter of the pouring ra[G/B]in
In the a[Am]bsence of this fear and [G]pain
[C]I will finally bid my ball and c[G/B]hains
Am – G
A fond farewell
[C]On a road that leads me to my pl[G/B]ace
Gonna ri[Am]d my heart of past disgr[G]ace
I will f[F]inally bid this sluggish[G] pace
Am – G
A fond farewell…
[C]I heard their reservations
[Esus]And I read their bitter words   [E]
[A7sus]I shined a light upon their wisd[A7]om
No matter how absurd    [dm]
[Dm/G]Oh they broke my heart to pieces  [/G#]
[Am]And I questioned my own beliefs [dm7]
[F]My dignity was gone
[G]It’s time to move on…

(Repeat Chorus)

[F]Say goodbye to feeling sorry for myself
To begging others for far too much help
[dm]This is my hand these are the cards that I’ve been dealt
Only I can make these changes, nobody else
[F]Say goodbye to these sleepless nights
Those corridors with no end in sight
[dm]A driven man with these words I write
[G]I’m making peace with my soul tonight

(Repeat Chorus)
