      G
I'm a long way from my home

      Bb             C      Dm
I was borne on the raging sea

             F           Bb           C         F
And when I first struck land, with my head in hand

            Dm             F         C
I built a house out of an old oak tree

              Dm           F               C   Gm
And raised a family out of earth and electricity

---

          G
And I was king of my domain

       Bb            C         Dm
But my fortitude approved in vain

             F       Bb         C        F
And when the locust came like a summer rain

          Dm              F         C
Devouring everything that I held dear

            Dm                F        C
And all I'd worked for simply disappeared

     F        Bb           C          F
So I crept away, for I had debts to pay

               Dm        F       C
And joined the army as a privateer

                Dm              F                C           Gm
Yeah, it was then, the wind had whispered, but I would not hear

      G
So we sailed out across the land

           Bb            C       Dm
Through an ocean made of sinking sand

             F        Bb        C        F
And though I lost my men, I was born again

       Dm          F        C
As a tailor in an unknown land

       F               Dm          C
With a needle and some thread in hand

        F           Bb              C         F
Mending suits and slacks, stitching up the cracks 

         Dm        F             C
In the backs of my neighbour's heads

             Dm                F          C                  Gm
And soon the word, yeah, of my work had spread through the town

     G
So before the king I stood

           Bb            C      Dm
I said, I come from the raging sea

            F         Bb        C       F
And let the truth be told, I am not so old

             Dm               F      C 
As you might first have taken me to be

            F                Dm    C
For numbers never could apply to me

           F       Bb             C          F
For I'm as old as time, and maybe half as blind

               Dm              F    C
What some of you might call infinity

                Dm            F             C    Gm
Yeah, I'm the tailor of the earth and electricity
