Bm                       C      Cmaj7
 I saw you from a foreign window
Bm                          C     Cmaj7
 Bearing down the sufferin' road
Bm                       C      Cmaj7
 You were carryin' your burden
Bm                    C
 To the palace of the Lord
        D              G     Em/G   G    D
 To the palace of the Lord

Bm...
 I spied you from a foreign window
 When the lilacs were in bloom

 And the sun shone through your window pane
 To the place you kept your books
 You were reading on your sofa
 You were singin' every prayer
 That the masters had instilled in you
 Since Lord Byron loved despair
 In the palace of the Lord
 In the palace of the Lord

Bridge:
C                            D Dsus4 D
And if you get it right this time
D      Dsus4     D             G  Em/G  G
You don't have to come back again
Bm/D                              C
And if you get it right this time
                     D     D7                     
There's no need to explain


Bm...
I saw you from a foreign
Bearing down the sufferin' road
You were carryin' your burden
You were singing about Rimbaud
I was going down to Geneva
When the Kingdom had been found
I was giving you protection
From the loneliness of the crowd
In the palace of the Lord
In the palace of the Lord

They were giving you religion
Breaking bread and drinking wine
And you laid out on the green hills
Just like when you were a child
I saw you from a foreign window
You were trying to find your way back home
You were carrying your defects
Sleeping on a pallet on the floor
In the palace of the Lord
In the palace of the Lord
C                    G   
In the palace of the Lord

Enjoy !
