RACE AMONG THE RUINS
Gordon Lightfoot

Intro
A A D G, D A G-F, Dx4:

[V1]

    D                 D
You think you had the last laugh now
    G                  D
you know this can't be true
                A               A
Even though the sun shines down upon you
    G                   D
Sometimes you must feel blue   [wait 2, 3, 4]
    D                D
You make the best of each new day
    G             D
You try not to be sad
                A               A
Even though the sky falls down upon you
        G                D
Call it midnight feelin' bad

[CHORUS]

         A              A/G
When you wake up to the promise
        D/F#               G
Of your dream world comin' true
     D                  A
With one less friend to call on
       G              D
Was it someone that I knew.....
 A               A/G
Away you will go sailin'
     D/F#           G
In a race among the ruins
       D              A            G ... F ... D
If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon

[V2]

    D               D
The road to love is littered
       G              D
By the bones of other ones
           A            A
Who by the magic of the moment
     G            D
Were mysteriously undone
    D           D
You try to understand it
        G             D
But you never seem to find
            A              A
Any kind of freedom comin' clean
         G               D
Is just another state of mind

[CHORUS]

         A              A/G
When you wake up to the promise
        D/F#               G
Of your dream world comin' true
     D                  A
With one less friend to call on
       G              D
Was it someone that I knew.....
 A               A/G
Away you will go sailin'
     D/F#           G
In a race among the ruins
       D              A            G ... F ... D
If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon

[V3]

            D       D
So take the best of all that's left
    G                D
You know this cannot last
                 A              A
Even though your mother was you maker
         G                    D
From her apron strings you've passed.
     D               D
Just think about the fool
           G             D
Who by his virtue can be found
          A       A
In a most unusual situation
        G             D
Playin' jester to the clown

[CHORUS x 2]

         A              A/G
When you wake up to the promise
        D/F#               G
Of your dream world comin' true
     D                  A
With one less friend to call on
       G              D
Was it someone that I knew.....
 A               A/G
Away you will go sailin'
     D/F#           G
In a race among the ruins
       D              A            G ... F ... D
If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon

         A              A/G
When you wake up to the promise
        D/F#               G
Of your dream world comin' true
     D                  A
With one less friend to call on
       G              D
Was it someone that I knew.....
 A               A/G
Away you will go sailin'
     D/F#           G
In a race among the ruins
       D              A            G ... F ... D______
If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon_______________
