Gordon Lightfoot - The House You Live In


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[INTRO] 
G   Am   G   Am

[VERSE 1]
   G                      Am
Go first in the world, go forth with your fears
  C                      G
Remember a price must be paid
                       Am
Be always too soon, be never too fast
       C                          D
At the time when all bets must be laid


[CHORUS]
  G                        C
Beware of the darkness, be kind to your children
  G          Em        D
Remember the woman who waits
        G         F            C          G
And the house you live in will never fall down
       C        G            D              G      Am
If you pity the stranger who stands at your gate


[VERSE 2]
            G                             Am
When you're caught by the gale and you're full under sail
  C                     G
Beware of the dangers below
                                  Am
And the song that you sing should not be too sad
       C                       D
And be sure not to sing it too slow


[CHORUS]
   G                       C
Be calm in the face of all common disgraces
    G                 Em       D
And know what they're doing it for
        G         F            C          G
And the house you live in will never fall down
       C        G            D              G      Am   G   Am
If you pity the stranger who stands at your door


[VERSE 3]
            G                   Am
When you're out on the road and feeling quite lost
   C                   G
Consider the burden of fame
                        Am
And he who is wise will not criticize
     C                     D
When other men fail at the game


[CHORUS]
  G                         C
Beware of strange faces and dark dingy places
   G             Em          D
Be careful while bending the law
        G         F            C          G
And the house you live in will never fall down
       C        G            D              G      Am   G   Am
If you pity the stranger who stands at your door


[VERSE 4]
            G                         Am
When you're down in the dumps and not ready to deal
  C                        G
Decide what it is that you need
                           Am
Is it money or love, is it learning to live
   C                        D
Or is it the mouth you must feed


[CHORUS]
   G                       C
Be known as a man who will always be candid
   G              Em       D
On questions that do not relate
        G         F            C          G
And the house you live in will never fall down
       C        G            D             G      Am
If you pity the stranger who stands at the gate
        G         F            C          G
And the house you live in will never fall down
       C        G            D             G
If you pity the stranger who stands at the gate
