Gordon Lightfoot - Fading Away


CAPO: 4th Fret



[INTRO:] Am 

[VERSE 1:]                             

I was at the breakwall, I was looking at the sea 
   D                      Am
In back of an eight ball, in some misery 

There on the horizon stood a mighty ship of fools 
          D                            Am
They were headed into the harbour with all their broken rules


[CHORUS:]
                     C             D                Am
Whenever I'm feeling lonely, I can just pick up the phone 
                   C              D             Am
Or I can go to the movies or just stay at home alone 
                         C                  D                  Am    D
They're better off to be someplace that's a good long way from home
                            C
Anyway I can't lose myself
                         D                A   G 
The dawn is breaking, I'm hesitating, I'm 
D       A     G
Fading away
D       A    G  D  A
fading away 


[VERSE 2:]                             
     Am
They sailed right up to meet me, I said, "What's it all about
       D                 Am
Please try to excuse me, we can work things out

If you've ever wondered, if that mighty ship is real 
       D                                Am
Let me tell ya 'bout it brother, it was something you could feel"


[CHORUS:]
                     C             D                Am
Whenever I'm feeling lonely, I let twilight set the tone 
                   C              D             Am
Or I can go to the movies or just stay at home alone 
                         C                  D                Am 
They're better off to be someplace that's a good long way to roam 
D                                        C
Ain't living high on the hog right now 
                         D                A   G 
The dawn is breaking, I'm hesitating, I'm 
D       A     G
Fading away
D       A    G  D
fading away 


[VERSE 3:]                             
         Am
One more day on the calendar in my mind 
     D                         Am
I am down around the breakwall putting in some time 

The whole ship of fools has gotten safely under way 
          D                             Am
And I was proud to be a part of what it was they had to say


[CHORUS:]
                     C             D                Am
Whenever I'm feeling lonely, I can just pick up the phone 
                   C              D             Am
Or I can go to the movies or just stay at home alone 
                         C                  D                  Am    D
They're better off to be someplace that's a good long way from home
                            C
Anyway I can't lose myself
                         D                A   G 
The dawn is breaking, I'm hesitating, I'm 
D       A     G
Fading away
D       A    G  D  A
fading away 
D       A    G  D  A
fading away 
D       A    G  D
fading away
