Stranger to Himself
Fairport Convention
From "Rising for the Moon"

(Capo on IV; the actual chords are B, E and A)

Intro: G
He was a stranger to himself
A spy in his own camp
         C             G
And his money was his health
      F                    C        G
All thrown to dust by his very own hand

Yet his beauty lingered still
Beyond the draining of the sand
But greener was the other side of the hill
Richer was the other man's land

        C  G       C                   F         G
But we loved him, loved him just like brothers would
    C G        C                 F      G
We loved him, loved him like no others could
G              C  G        C                F      G  
      And she loved him, loved him like a lover should

Take good care of an aching heart
You never can replace it
You know you're the master of your art
You realise that when you think it fit

The orbs of blue are jading away
No laughter from them dances
Yet you're bound to remember this one day
Hazards are risks and risks are chances

You can run for cover, run for cover like a frightened hare
Till it's all over, it's all over and there's no one there
     'Cos you daren't discover, daren't discover that we really care
