Silent Passage
By Bob Carpenter

Easy song from Bob Carpenter's mind-blowing 1974 (released in 1984) country-folk album Silent Passage.
Standard tuning EADGBE
No Capo

G / C / D / C / G

[Verse 1]
G               Em               D
Before the war I had no need for travelling
         C                           G
Indeed I do not know what made it so important to leave
   Em                                    D
And after all this time I found that I’m avoiding me
           Am                C
For nothing more or less than fear
         G                  Em             D
Of what I have to gain from staying in the clear
             Am           C                    G
Although it’s only coming home that brings you near


[Verse 2]
G              Em           D
Master come my brother is a sailor
          C                              G
Upon this ship of life we are the master-sails in the wind
   Em                                    D
And you can understand we need a hand to guide us in
        Am              C
So many claim to be the one
          G             Em
But like a shadow on the sun
              D
They fade and spin
          Am                C          G
And we are scattered on the ocean once again


[Verse 3]
G               Em               D
Before the war I had no need for travelling
         C                           G
Indeed I do not know what made it so important to leave
   Em                                    D
And after all this time I found that I’m avoiding me
            Am                C
For nothing  more or less than fear
         G                  Em             D
Of what I have to gain from staying in the clear
             Am           C                    G
Although it’s only coming home that brings you near

             Am           C                  G
Although it’s only coming home that brings a tear

[End)
