  Fall-ing a-part, he knew in his heart that his time had come.

As he lay in his tent, in the hot   des-ert sands

he smiled at how he,     would nev-er see        his prom-ised land.

safe, but in the end the journey's brought joys that outweigh the pain."

(The rest of the song is the same. As the song goes on the guitar part 
becomes fuller and the chords are played)

VERSE 2 (D, G, D, Am, C, G, D)

Odysseus sat tired and alone.
He'd always held out against all the doubts that he would come home.
But now he was here, his soul felt estranged.
His wife and his dog, his son and his Gods, everything changed.

CHORUS 2 (C, D, Em, Am, G, C, G, D, G)
He sang "I could have stayed and ruled as an Ithican prince,
I could've played safe.
But in the end the journey's brought joys that outweigh the pain."

VERSE 3 (D, G, D, Am, C, G, D)
Balthazar rode for seven long years, eastwards and far,
he followed his star, and it brought him here.
To a stable in ruins in some backwater town,
to a virgin defiled, no king but a child, too small for a crown.

CHORUS 3 (C, D, Em, Am, G, C, G, D, G)
He sang "I could have lived with my Gods as a Persian prince,
I could've played safe,
but in the end the journey's brought joys that outweigh the pain."

BRIDGE 2 (Same as BRIDGE 1 but with lyrics)
Paupers and kings, princes and thieves,
singers of songs, righters of wrongs, be what you believe.
So saddle your horse and shoulder your load,
burst at the seams, be what you dream, and take to the road.


That's all pretty much accurate, there's a few hammers during the
last verse and chorus to fill up the guitar part but that's up to
you to play as you wish.

Thanks,
John.
