Footprints  Paul McCartney

"Footprints" (capo: 5th. fret)
 
 ____Intro: Em7---Em9---Am/E---Bm7
 B7---Em7---D---A

____Verse: 1
It's beautiful outs[Em7---Em9]ide
 
 Am/E------

An old hand gathers wood________
Can he [Bm7]see me sitting here?
His [Em7]mind is [D]somewhere e[A]lse
____Verse: 2
His [Em7]friend have [Bm7]flown aw[Em7---Em9]ay
 
 Am/E------

He's left out in the cold________
He [Bm7]won't sit by my fire
He says he [Em7]likes it [D]in the s[A]now
Where [Em7]footprints [Bm7]never g[G]o
He [A]likes it [Em7]in the [A]snow
____Verse: 3
It's [Em7]getting dark outsi[Em9]de
 
 Am/E------

The old hand's going home________
Has he [Bm7]someone waiting there?
Is he [Em7]living [D]on his o[A]wn?
Where [Em7]footprints [Bm7]never g[G]o
He [A]likes it [Em7]in the [A]snow
____Chorus: 1
[G] White [A]blanket, [Bm]hiding the traces
Of [Em7]tears she didn't s[Bm]ee
[G]Oh, white [A]blanket [Bm]covers the memory
Of [Em7]all that used to b[Bm]e,___[Em7]_all that used to b[Bm]e
____Coda:
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/paul_mccartney/footprints_crd_ver_2.html )
But his [F#]heart keeps [Bm]aching
In the [Em7]same old [A]way
He [F#]can't help [Bm]feeling that
 
 Em7 A Em7---Em9---Am/E---Bm7---B7---Em---D---A

She might come back someday
____Verse: 4
It's beautiful outs[Em7---Em9]ide
 
 Am/E------

A magpie looks for food________
The [Bm7]old hand throws a crumb
Do you [Em7]think he's [D]found a [A]friend?
Where [Em7]footprints [Bm7]never g[G]o
He [A]likes it [Em7]in the [A]snow
____Chorus: 2
[G] White [A]blanket, [Bm]hiding the traces
Of [Em7]paths he didn't t[Bm]ake
[G]Oh white [A]blanket [Bm]covers the memory
Of [Em7]moves he didn't m[Bm]ake
____Chorus: 1 (w/ changes)
[G]Oh white [A]blanket, [Bm]hiding the traces
Of [Em7]tears he didn't s[Bm]ee
[G]Snow white [A]blanket simply [Bm]covers the memory
Of [Em7]all that used to b[Bm]e
____Coda:
But his [F#]heart keeps [Bm]aching
In the [Em7]same old [A]way
He [F#]can't help [Bm]feeling that
 
 Em7 A Em7---Em9---Am/E---Bm7---B7---Em7---D---A

She might come back someday
