"Crossroads" by Don McLean

Taken from the album "American Pie"

                                                        24 February 1995

This is a nice song with only Don's voice and piano - no guitar...
The lyrics and chords follow...

Listen to the album. The song itself isn't hard at all...
Good luck.


Crossroads (Don McLean)

Intro: G / Em / C / Am / D

Em                       Am
  I've got nothing on my mind
             D
  Nothing to remember
G D/F#       Em
  Nothing to forget
           Am         D
  I've got nothing to regret
G                            Am
  But I'm all tied up on the inside
C        D                     G
  No-one knows quite what I've got
Em                       Am
  And I know that on the outside
         C                D
  What I used to be - I'm not
     G   C   G
  Anymore


G                                       Am
  You know I've heard about people like me
C             D        G
  But I never made the connection
G                                Am
  They walk one road to set them free
C                                 D
  And find they've gone the wrong direction
G                                 Am
  But there's no need for turning back
C                  D               G
  'cause all roads lead to where I stand
Em                             Am
  And I believe I'll walk them all
C           D               G
  No matter what I may have planned


Em                       Am
  Can you remember who I was
                D
  Can you still feel it
G         D/F#    Em
  Can you find my pain
C         D
  Can you heal it
G                            Am
  And lay your hands upon me now
C               D                G
  And cast this darkness from my soul
Em                       Am
  You alone can light my way
C                       D
  You alone can make me whole
        G   C   G
  Once again


G                                  Am
  We've walked both sides of ev'ry street
C             D              G
  Through all kinds of windy weather
G                        Am
  But that was never our defeat
C                          D
  As long as we could walk together
G                                Am
  So there's no need for turning back
C                  D                G
  'cause all roads lead to where we stand
Em                              Am
  And I believe we'll walk them all
C           D                Em  C  G  C  G
  No matter what we may have planned


There are two sets of chords for the verses:

Verse 1 & Verse 3 are identical
Verse 2 & Verse 4 are more or less the same


Crossroads (Don McLean)

I've got nothing on my mind
Nothing to remember
Nothing to forget
I've got nothing to regret
But I'm all tied up on the inside
No-one knows quite what I've got
And I know that on the outside
What I used to be - I'm not
Anymore

You know I've heard about people like me
But I never made the connection
They walk one road to set them free
And find they've gone the wrong direction
But there's no need for turning back
'cause all roads lead to where I stand
And I believe I'll walk them all
No matter what I may have planned

Can you remember who I was
Can you still feel it
Can you find my pain
Can you heal it
And lay your hands upon me now
And cast this darkness from my soul
You alone can light my way
You alone can make me whole
Once again

We've walked both sides of ev'ry street
Through all kinds of windy weather
But that was never our defeat
As long as we could walk together
So there's no need for turning back
'cause all roads lead to where we stand
And I believe we'll walk them all
No matter what we may have planned

Pretty much spot on. Sounds nice if fingerpicked to imitate the piano.
