City of Stone  The Del McCoury Band

[G]I dreamed I was lost in a [Bb]city of [G]stone
[G]And the people that dwelled [D]there were [G]marble
[G]I listened in vain for any [Bb]fountain's silver [G]tone
[G]In vain for any sweet bird's [D]friendly [G]warble
It was [C]silent as the [F]grave in that [G]city of stone
[F]Not one soul to [C]save
Not one [Bb]voice to cheer me [D]on
I was [G]frightened in my heart
And [Bb]cold to the [G]bone
[G]As I wandered in my dream
Through that [D]city of [G]stone
[G]I dreamed I was lost in a [Bb]city of [G]stone
[G]And the people that dwelled [D]there were [G]marble
[G]I wandered the alleyways in [Bb]search of my [G]home
[G]At a familiar place I [D]rang the [G]doorbell
[C]No one re-[F]plied, but the [G]door swung open wide
[F]So I stepped in-[C]side
My [Bb]house to look u-[D]pon
All [G]cobwebs and ashes
All [Bb]signs of live were [G]gone
[G]And I feared for my soul
In that [D]city of [G]stone
[G]The most precious of gifts come in the [Bb]strangest of [G]forms
[G]Sweet life quickens even [D]in the [G]charnel
[G]Sometimes we're granted visions
That [Bb]serve us as a [G]warning
[G]How our passing deeds are writ [D]in stone e-[G]ternal
So [C]make not your [F]heart into a [G]city of stone
The [F]higher that you [C]build those walls
The [Bb]surer over-[D]thrown
For [G]here stands a man
Who turned [Bb]back from too far [G]gone
[G]When he dreamed he was lost
In a [D]city of [G]stone
[G]Yes, here stands a man
Who turned [Bb]back from too far [C]gone
Oh, I [G]dreamed I was lost in a [D]city of [G]stone.
