Heart Of Stone

Great Big Sea

"Heart Of Stone"(McCann/Mahoney/O'Brien)
From "Fortune's Favour"(2008)

Another great Sean song,rather reminiscent
of the Beach Boy's "God Only Knows"...
with bagpipes...

capo, as per usual, on the third fret.

 If the last thing I see is your face
 the last thing I feel is your warm embrace
 Then I would not be afraid
 I would go to a happy grave
 If the last thing I see is you

Should I suddenly disappear
Or linger on for 100 years
I would know no fear
I would taste no bitter tears
If the last thing I see is you
 Old heart of stone, help me forget it              
 Old heart of stone,
 do you think she meant it              
 old heart of stone,
 somehow I've always known
 That I'd regret it              

If I could have one wish
It would be that you remember this
Know that I did not stray
For you were there to guide my way
you and your beautiful face

CHORUS, then Bridge:

 If I should fall would you give chase
 Would you follow me
 Or find someone to fill my space
 And keep you company

If the sun refused to shine
If it called for rain till the end of time
I would not lose faith
I'd sail my soul to a warmer place
for you and your beautiful face
