              A9
I recall when I was small 

      Dmaj7           E7  Dmaj7  F#m7
How I spent my days a lone 

                   A9 
The busy world was not for me 

     Dmaj7             E6  Eb7  Dmaj7
So I went and found my own 

                  F#7sus4/C#
I would climb the garden wall 

       F#/B   E/A   C#/F#
With a candle in my hand 

        Emaj7         Bbm7             Dmaj7  C#m7  F#m7 
I'd hide inside a hall of rock and sand 

                A9
On the stone an ancient hand 

     Dmaj7        E7    Dmaj7  F#m7 
In a faded yellow-green 

             A9
Made alive a worldly wonder 

      Dmaj7            E6   Eb7  Dmaj7 
Often told but never seen 

             F#7sus4/C#
Now and ever bound to labor 

       F#/B    E/A    C#/F#
On the sea and in the sky 

Emaj7         Bbm7
Every man and beast appeared 

  Bmaj7             Emaj7  A7
A friend as real as I
 
  
 Dmaj9                   Amaj7  
Be fore the fall when they wrote it on the wall 

           Dmaj9           F#m7      
When there wasn’t even Hollywood


F#m/E   Dmaj9                   C#m7
They    heard the call and they wrote it on the wall 

    Dmaj7
For you and me

               A9  
Can it be this sad design 

      Dmaj7       E7   Dmaj7  F#m7
Could be the very same 

               A9
A wooly man without a face

      Dmaj7           E6  Eb7 Dmaj7
And a beast without a name 

                 F#7sus4/C#
Nothin' here but history 

        F#/B     E/A      C#/F#
Can you see what has been done 

Emaj7       Bbm7
Memory rush over me 

      Bmaj7         Emaj7   A7 
Now I step into the sun
  
 Dmaj9                     Amaj7  
Be fore the fall when they wrote it on the wall 

           Dmaj9           F#m7      
When there wasn’t even Hollywood

F#m/E Dmaj9                   C#m7
