Strange Affair  Richard Thompson


This is a [G]strange affair
The [C]time has come to travel but the [G]road is filled with [C]fear
This is a [G]strange affair
My [C]youth has all been wasted and I'm [G]bent and grey with [C]years
And [F]all my com[C]panions are [G]taken a[C]way
And [F]who will pro[C]vide for me a[G]gainst my dying [C]day?
I [F]took my own pro[C]vision but it [Dm]threw me and [Am]wasted aw[G]ay
This is a [C]str[F]an[G]ge, this is a strange af[C]fair
Oh, where are my companions?
My mother, father, lover, friend and enemy
Where are my companions?
They're prisoners of death now and taken far from me
And where are the dreams I dreamed in the days of my youth?
They took me to illusion and they promised me the truth
And what do sleepers need to make them listen, why do they need more
This is a strange, this is a strange affair
