      G                    Em
I was late at night on the open road
G                          C
Speeding like a man on the run
  C        G        C     G        D
A lifetime spent preparing for the journey
      G                  Em
He is closer now, as the search is on
G                         C
Reading from a map in the mind
     C            G      C                  G           D
Yes, there's that rugged hill and there's a boat on the river.
	     Em            [Em D]
And when the rain came down,
	     Em          [Dsus4 D]
He heard a wild dog howl.
           C             G
There were voices in the night. (don't do it)
C             G
Voices out of sight. (don't do it)
C                           B
"Too many men have failed before; whatever you do,

Em    D       Em
Don't pay the ferryman
Em    D    Em    C     D
Don't even fix a price
Em    D       Em
Don't pay the ferryman
	 C               D     Em
Until he gets you to the other side"

[Em D] Em  [Em D] Em

       G                  Em
In the rolling mist as he gets on board
G                              C
Now there'll be no turning back
  C         G      C      G       D
Beware that hooded old man at the rudder
        G                         Em
And the lightning flashed and the thunder rolled
    G                          C
And people calling out his name
    C       G          C              G             D
And dancing bones that jabbered and a-moaned on the water.
	     Em            [Em D]
And then the ferryman said
	  Em            [Dsus4 D]
"there is trouble ahead
   C               G
So you must pay me now" (don't do it)
 C               G
"You must pay me now" (don't do it)
C                              B
And still that voice came from beyond: "whatever you do,


[Em D] Em  [Em D] Em

Repeat intro




Em    D        D   Em Em Em
Don't pay...   The Ferry-man!
