The Storyman  Chris de Burgh

I [Am]lived my [Am]life in the [G]words of a [Am]Storyman,
[Am]Watched my [Am]dreams from the [G]years gone [Am]by,
Heard my [C]voice in the [G]songs of a [Am]Storyman,
[D]Always by my s[Em]ide, [D]always by my [Em]side;
I [Am]saw him [Am]first in a [G]castle by [Am]candlelight,
[Am]Turning [Am]round with a [G]golden [Am]key,
I heard a [C]train far [G]away, and a [Am]whistle blow,
[D]Like a baby's [Em]cry, '[D]twas like a baby's [Em]cry;
Ra[Am]vens [Am]stood on the [G]walls of [Am]Jerusalem,
[Am]Sailors [Am]danced at the [G]border[Am]line,
Light a [C]fire on the [G]road to the [Am]ferryman,
[D]Emotions running [Em]high, [D]in the summer[Em]time;
--> Chorus
[C]Take me back to the [G]places I've never been,
[C]Take me back to [G]another [C]time,
[C]Take me back to a [G]world I have never [C]seen,
[D]Only in my [Em]mind, [D]only in my [Em]mind;
Late [Am]last [Am]night I met [G]up with a [Am]lady-love,
[Am]Dressed in [Am]red, didn't [G]say [Am]goodbye,
Carry [C]me to the [G]last time I [Am]showed her what
[D]Tender hands can [Em]do, and [D]I'll be missing [Em]you;
Chorus -->
[C]Follow the light that's shining on to where we will be going,
[G]Up to Heaven, Paradise, or to the heart divine;
[C]It's in the echoes of a child, waiting for the journey,
[G]The spirit of one world;
Chorus -->
I [Am]lived my [Am]life in the [G]words of a [Am]Storyman......
