Coast Of Madagascar-crd  Mark David Manders

[A]Tucked away in a cardboard box be[D]hind the attic d[A]oor
My chance to find a book of rhymes from a hu[E]ndred years before
[A]Tales I read came to life like a s[D]ail in the br[A]eeze
Lord Byron was my captain, and his p[E]ages were my s[A]eas
(chorus)
And we'd [D]sail ac[E]ross the wa[A]ter
On the t[D]rade win[E]ds of t[A]ime
And off the co[D]ast of [E]Mada[A]gascar[F#m]
We'd l[E]eave our misfortunes be[A]hind
There was something about a princess held captive by her foes
There was something in his verses that would not let me go
And as stately galliants poised to fight, sails stretching at the seams
I'd fall asleep in the light and drift off to dream
(repeat chorus)
My life is like a cardboard box filled with memories and rhymes
I've lost track of the book I had but I can still recall his lines
Lookin' back I have to smile as I let my pen run free
For I was much too young to fathom the course he'd set for me
(repeat chorus 2x)
