Gordon Lightfoot - If I Could


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO]
 D    C  G  D    C  G

[VERSE 1]
D
If I could sing like the poets and kings of this world 
                                                           G
If I could rise like the wind o'er the tides of the sea
                    A7                 D               G
I would sing you to sleep my love with sweet melody
            A7                  D               G
And let you dream away till the morning light returned again 
   A                       D    C  G  D
To take you away from me


[VERSE 2]
D
If I could speak with the tongues of the masters of old 
                                                       G
If I could tame all the fleeting perceptions I hold 
                     A7            D           G
Would I stand in the marketplace before you 
              A7               D                     G
To be shouted down without any warning at all, to be stood by the wall
    A                         D    C  G  D    C  G
And shot by the man in blue


[VERSE 3]
D
If I could run with the grace of a sun coloured stallion 
                                                            G
If I could fly like the great silver jets in the morning 
                A7                      D                  G
If I caused the wind to change with one wave of my hand 
               A7             D            G
And if I could play the final symphony and set it free 
         A                       D    C  G  D    C  G
Would it mean anything to you


[VERSE 4]
D
If I could stand like the rusty old man in his armour 
                                                       G
If I could ride the steed that he rode in his time
                 A7               D         G
I would turn his head away to the river
            A7                 D             G
And let him wander through the meadow grass, wild and free
    A                  D    C  G  D    C  G
For everyone to see


[VERSE 5]
D
If I could sing like the poets and kings of this world 
                                                           G
If I could rise like the wind o'er the tides of the sea
                    A7                 D               G
I would sing you to sleep my love with sweet melody
            A7                  D               G
And let you dream away till the morning light returned again 
   A                    
To take you away from me
