[Verse 1]

Dm                           A7                       Dm
 We passed upon the stairs, We spoke of was and when
                         A7                        F
Although I wasn't there, he said i was his friend
                          C                Gm A
Which came as some surprise, I spoke into his eyes
                       Dm                     C (riff 2)
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago


[Chorus]

C (riff 2)   F (riff 3)
Oh no,        not me
  Bbm               F (riff 3)
I never lost control
           C (riff 2)      F
You're face      to face
         Bbm              A (repeat intro)
with the man who sold the world


[Verse 2]

Dm                           A7                         Dm
I laughed and shook his hand, and made my way back home
                             A7                            F
I searched for form and land, for years and years i roamed
                      C                 Gm A
I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
                       Dm                    C (riff 2)
We must have died alone, a long long time ago


[Chorus]

C (riff 2) F (riff 3)
Who knows? not me
   Bbm               F (riff 3)
We never lost control
           C (riff 2)      F
You're face       to face
         Bbm              A (repeat intro)
with the man who sold the world
