Transcribed By: Matt Schultz
Tuning: Standard
Melody Intro:


Verse` 1
[G]If my words did glow with the gold of [C]sunshine
[C]And my tunes were played on the harp unst[G]rung
[G]Would you hear my voice come through the [C]music
[C]Would you [G]hold it [D]near [C]as it were your [G]own?
Verse 2
[G]It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are [C]broken
[C]Perhaps they're better left un[G]sung
[G]I don't know, don't really [C]care
[G]Let there be [D]songs [C]to fill the [G]air
[Am]Ripple in still [D]water
When there [G]is no pebble [C]tossed
Nor [A]wind to [D]blow
Verse 3
Reach out your [G]hand if your cup be [C]empty
[C]If your cup is full may it be aga[G]in
[G]Let it be known there is a [C]fountain
[G]That was not [D]made [C]by the hands of [G]men
Verse 4
[G]There is a road, no simple [C]highway
[C]Between the dawn and the dark of [G]night
[G]And if you go no one may [C]follow
[G]That path is [D]for [C]your steps [G]alone
Verse 5
You who [G]choose to lead must [C]follow
[C]But if you fall you fall al[G]one
[G]If you should stand then who's to [C]guide you?
[G]If I knew the [D]way [C]I would take you [G]home
