D Ds4 D- D C---G------D He was the wizard of a thousand years D Ds4 D- D C--G---D and I chanced to meet him one night, wandering.
C G C G He told me tales, and he drank my wine. D Ds4 D- D G D Me and my magic man kinda feel fine.
He had a cloak of gold and eyes of fire and as he spoke I felt a keen desire to free the world of its fear and hate and help the people to feel free again
Why dont we listen to the voices in our hearts 'cos then I know we'd find we're not so far apart everybody's got to be happy, everyone should sing for we know the joy of life is the peace that love can bring
So spoke the wizard from his mountain home. The vision of his wisdom means we'll never be alone and I will dream of that magic night and a million silver stars that guide us with their light
Fade with repeated D/Ds4/D-, D, C, G, D, with echo...
Mostly partial chords are used: D xx0232 (index, middle, ring) Dsus4 xx0233 (drop pinky from D) D- xx0230 (lift middle from D) (dunno what this is called?) C x3201x G 3200xx
A rank beginner, so bear this in mind...
