 Threw a petal my way.

 I was still alone,

 No one knew my face.

 Then the hails be-gan to sing;

 Upon the sacred stone.

Chorus 4:

F                     Am                  G  C
 There I stood in the middle, of the holy do-main.
G                     D      Em   F#m
 Then the people came out to say;
Asus4     A       D     Dsus2, D

3...EVERYTIME I DREAM... by Yusuf Islam
------------------------...............

*from 'Roadsinger' (2009)*


Intro:

E7, A7, E7

Verse 1:

E7            B             F#
 Every time I dream, I keep seeing streets and alley ways;
A                             E7
 Places that I've never known.

E7            B                 F#
 Every time I dream, I am being lifted to a height,
     A                   E7
That I too frightened to go.

Chorus 1:

E                   G
 Then I wake up and find,
               Bm            A              E7
Everything's a-way, it seems, one night ago.

Interlude:

E7

Verse 2:

E7            B
 Every time I sleep,
              F#                         A
I keep hoping this would be the night of nights,
                 E7
That I see you a-gain.

E              B          F#
 As I close my eyes, like rims and curtains, slowly rising,
A                    E7
 Upon an empty stage.

Chorus 2:

E                     G
 Then I'm back in the stall,
              Bm                    A             E7
Sitting all a-lone, waiting for the show to begin.

Bridge 1:

A       C      E
 Ooh... ooh... ooh.
C       A      E   E7
 Ooh... ooh... ooh.

Verse 3:

E7            B                    F#
 Every time I dream, I would often find myself running,
A                          E7
 From a wild pack of lies.

E                B                     F#
 'Till I reach a house, and I hear the judge upstairs,
    A                         E7
And look for a place to hide.

Chorus 3:

E                 G
 But if I saw you there,
           Bm               A                  E7
I wouldn't dare dream again of opening my eyes.

Outro:

8...ROADSINGER... by Yusuf Islam
-----------------...............

*from 'Roadsinger' (2009)*


Intro:

C

Verse 1:

C                         F             C
 Roadsinger came to town; long cape and hat.
C                 G            C            G            C      F, C
 People stood and stared, then closed their doors, as he passed.
C                              F                  C
 He strolled the empty street; kids banged on tin cans.
C                 G      C      G                       C    F, C
 Then the panting dogs began to bark, as the roadsinger sang.

Chorus 1:

Am                G            D  F                C
 Where do you go, where do you go, when hearts are closed?
F                 Am               G                     G7
 When a friend be-comes a stranger, nobody wants to know.
Am                G            D  F                     C
 Where do you go, where do you go, when the world turns dark,
F                 Am                 G        F         C       F, C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the roads are blocked?

Verse 2:

C                      F                        C
 He stopped by a stall, between the barrels and sacks,
C                      G       C      G              C    F, C
 A child's face peeped out and gave a smile, and ran back.
C                     F            C
 Behind a misty glass, on a window-pane,
C                G      C       G            C    F, C
 A little finger drew a perfect heart, and a name.

Chorus 2:

Am                G            D  F                       C
 Where do you go, where do you go, in a world filled with fright,
F       Am                G                   G7
 Only a song to warm you,  through the night?
Am                G            D  F               C
 Where do you go, where do you go, after lies are told,
F                 Am                 G        F        C    F, C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the night is cold?

Interlude: (with Mmm's)

C, F, C, C  G  C  G, C, F  C (x2)

Verse 3:

C                   F           C
 Roadsinger rode on, to another land,
C                  G       C                G         C     F, C
 Though the people spoke a different tongue; it under-stand.
C                             F                    C
 They showed him how to share, and took him by the hand,
C               G       C      G                   C    F, C
 Showed him the path to Heaven, through the desert sand.

Chorus 3:

Am                G            D   F              C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  to find happi-ness,
F           Am                 G      G7
 In a world filled with hatred, tears?
Am                G            D  F          C
 Where do you go, where do you go, if no one cares,
F          Am           G  F            C      F, C
 And every-body's lost,     looking for theirs.
