Roll back the Clouds
(Christy Hennessy - Redemption Songs)

                  G                                C
I've been sitting here so long, for you to hear my song,
            D                                G
And all you want to know, have I been on the radio,
                  G                                    C
Who's the biggest star I've seen, what is my favourite scene,
         D                           G 
And if I get the job would I sing on Mars.
                G                             C
Yes Sir I would sing on Mars, I'd play upon a star,
         D                            G
I'd sing songs of the Sun and when my job was done,
              G                                 C
I would say I love you so, I'd like to play one more,
         D                         G
Just for all young lovers, for the road.


C                 G
Tell me Son, yeah just how far,
C               D
I need to go to be a star.

                G                                    C
I have known my highs and lows, I've worked in every show,
               D                        G
I've played in every town, brought some houses down,
                  G                              C
The critics never noticed me, I'm not a star you see,
          D                      G
And yet I give my heart to every part.
                  G                                      C
I would stand for hours and hours, I'd walk through some showers,
        D                    G
With my dancing shoes and my dreams and views,
               G                                C
I walk upon an empty stage with one light in my face,
      D                                    G
To be told don't phone us, but we'll phone you.


C                 G
Tell me Son, yeah just how far,
C               D
I need to go to be a star.

              G                                  C
Every day the same old scene, the same old happenings,
          D                     G
A hundred miles of shows and no place to go,
                       G                                   C     
And when your luck has all run out, you're asked to take a bow,
            D                                  G
You've just stolen the show now you're on your own.


C               G
Yes Sir I would sing on Mars,
C                 D
My dream scene is me a star,


Is me a star,
I am a star.
