*************************************************************

[Verse 1]
      D             D/F#
The minstrel of the dawn is here,
     G                  A            Asus4  A
To make you laugh and bend your ear,
D                   D/F#
Up the steps you'll hear him climb,
     G                     A              Asus4  A
All full of thoughts, all full of rhymes,
G                     C
    Listen to the pictures flow,
     G                  C                 A  Asus4 A
A - cross the room in - to your mind they go,
A/C#    D       D/A    G           Bm
      Listen to the strings, they jangle and dangle,
           E       E7/G#  A
While the old gui - tar rings!


[Verse 2]
     D            D/F#
A minstrel of the dawn is he,
 G                 A            Asus4  A
Not too wise, but, oh, so free,
        D             D/F#
He'll talk of life out on the street,
       G                A            Asus4  A
He'll play it sad, and say it sweet,
G                   C               G
   Look into his shining face of loneliness,
         C             A     Asus4  A
You'll always find a trace,
A/C#  D           D/A  G
     Just like me and you,
      Bm                              E   E7/G#  A
He's trying to get into things more happy than blue!

[Verse 3]
     D              D/F#
A minstrel of the changing tide,
       G               A               Asus4  A
He'll ask for nothing but his pride,
      D                D/F#
Just sit him down, u - pon that chair,
     G                   A             Asus4  A
Go fetch some wine, and set it there,
G                     C
    Listen to the pictures flow,
      G           C                A   Asus4  A
And follow the fingers where they go,
A/C#  D        D/A    G             Bm
     Listen to the strings, they jangle and dangle,
           E       E7/G#  A      Asus4 A
While the old gui - tar rings!


[Verse 4]
    D             D/F#
A minstrel of the dawn is near,
       G              A            Asus4  A
Just like a 'step'n'fetch it' here,
      D                  D/F#
He's like an old time troubadour,
        G                 A          Asus4  A
Just wanting life, and nothing more,
G                   C
    Look into his shining eyes,
      G             C                     A     Asus4  A
And, if you see a ghost, don't be sur - prised,
A/C#  D       D/A  G
      Like me and you,
       Bm                             E   E7/G#  A
He's trying to get into things more happy than blue!


[Verse 5]
A/C#       D                 D/F#
      A minstrel boy will understand,
     G             A             Asus4  A
He holds a promise in his hand,
    D              D/F#
He talks of better days ahead,
     G                  A           Asus4  A
And by his word your fortune's read,
G                   C                G
   Listen to the pictures flow a - cross the room,
     C                  A    Asus4  A
In - to your mind they go,
A/C#   D       D/A    G           Bm
     Listen to the strings, they jangle and dangle,
           E        E7/G#  A   Asus4 A
While the old gui - tar  rings!


[Verse 6]
A/C#   D            D/F#
The minstrel of the dawn is gone,
    G                    A             Asus4  A
I hope he'll call be - fore too long,
     D
And, if you meet him,
D/F#              G               A       Asus4  A
You must be the victim of his minstrelsy!


[Coda]
        G              D    Dsus4 D
He'll sing for you a song,
        G    G4    G            D6    D
The minstrel-----    ...of the dawn------!
