Journey of the Magi  Frank Turner

this is a very simple interpretation, but works well :)
[Em]Moses was [G]old, a chill in his [D]bones
[Am]Falling [C]apart, he knew in his [G]heart that his time had [D]come
[Em]As he lay in his [G]tent in the hot desert [D]sands
[Am]He smiled at how [C]he would never [G]see his promised [D]land
He sang, "[C]I could have [D]lived and [Em]died
[Cadd9]An Egyptian [G]prince, could have played [C]safe
[G]But in the end journey's brought [D]joys
That outweigh the [G]pain"
[Em]Now Odysseus [G]sat tired and [D]alone
He'd always held out against all the doubts he would come home
[Em]Now he was [G]here, his soul felt [D]estranged
[Am]His wife and his [C]dog, his son and his [G]gods, everything [D]changed
He sang, "[C]I could have [D]stayed and[Em] ruled
[Cadd9]As an Ithacan [G]prince, could've played [C]safe
[G]But in the end journey's brought [D]joys
That outweigh the [G]pain"
[Em]Now Balthazar [G]rode for seven long [D]years
[Am]Eastwards and [C]far, he followed his [G]star and it brought him [D]here
[Em]To a stable in [G]ruins in some backwater [D]town
[Am]To a virgin [C]defiled, no king but a [G]child, too small for a [D]crown
He sang, "[C]I could have [D]lived with my [Em]Gods
[Cadd9]As a Persian [G]prince, I could've played [C]safe
But in the [G]end journey's brought [D]joys
That outweigh the [G]pain"
[Em]Paupers and kings, [G]princes and thieves
Singers of [C]songs, [D]righters of wrongs, be what you [G]believe
[Em]Saddle your [G]horse, shoulder your [D]load
[C]Burst at the seams, [D]be what you dream and then take to the [G]road
