[Intro]
(F)  (C)   (G)
Ooo, ooo,  ooo, oo-oo, oo!
 F    C     G
Ooo, ooo,  ooo, oo-oo, oo!


[Verse 1]
   G                  Bm
Thrown like a star in my vast sleep,
    C              D7
I open my eyes to take a peep,
G                  Bm
To find that I was by the sea,
  C                  D7
Gazing with tran - quility!


[Verse 2]
       F                    C
'Twas then when the hurdy gurdy man,
       G
Came singing songs of love,
 F                    C
Then when the hurdy gurdy man
        G     G                      G
Came singing songs  ...of love----!
        ^     ^

[Chorus]
      F5                C5
||:  Hurdy gurdy, hur - dy gurdy,
           G5
Hurdy ...gurdy gurdy, he sang! :|| [x3]

[Verse 3]
    G         Bm 
Histories of ages past, 
 C              D7
Unenlightened shadows cast,
  G                    Bm
Down through all e - ternity,
      C             D7
The crying of hu - manity!


[Verse 4]
       F                   C
'Tis then when the hurdy gurdy man,
        G
Comes singing songs of love,
 F                    C
Then when the hurdy gurdy man
         G      G                   G
Comes singing songs ...of love----!

[Chorus]

Hurdy gurdy, hur - dy gurdy,
           G5
Hurdy ...gurdy gurdy, he sang,
 F5                 C5
Hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurdy,
            G5
Hurdy gur - dy, hurdy gurdy, hurdy gurd,
 F5                C5
Hurdy gurdy, hur - dy gurdy,
          G5
Hurdy ...gurdy gurdy, he sang!

* [Additional Verse]
 G                    Bm
When the truth gets buried deep,
       C               D7
Be - neath a thousand years of sleep,
 G              Bm
Time demands a turn around,
     C              D7
And once again the truth is found!
