Stranger to Himself  Fairport Convention

From "Rising for the Moon"
(Capo on IV; the actual chords are B, E and A)
Intro: G
He was a st[G]ranger to himself
A s[G]py in his own camp
And his m[C]oney was his h[G]ealth
All th[F]rown to dust by his v[C]ery own h[G]and
Yet his beauty lingered still
Beyond the draining of the sand
But greener was the other side of the hill
Richer was the other man's land
But we l[C]ove[G]d him, l[C]oved him just like b[F]rothers wo[G]uld
We l[C]ov[G]ed him, l[C]oved him like no o[F]thers c[G]ould
[G] And she l[C]ove[G]d him, lo[C]ved him like a lo[F]ver sho[G]uld
Take good care of an aching heart
You never can replace it
You know you're the master of your art
You realise that when you think it fit
The orbs of blue are jading away
No laughter from them dances
Yet you're bound to remember this one day
Hazards are risks and risks are chances
You can run for cover, run for cover like a frightened hare
Till it's all over, it's all over and there's no one there
'Cos you daren't discover, daren't discover that we really care
