Gordon Lightfoot - The Lost Children


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[INTRO:] D C A  (4x)

[VERSE 1:]
                    C                  D               A
Down the hall their voices ring, their feet are on the run
              C             D              E
Phantoms on a winter sky, together they do come
Am             D                     G              Cmaj7
Faded lips and eyes of blue, they're carried in the wind
      A                   C               D                  E
Their laughter filled the countryside but they'll not laugh again


[INTERLUDE:] D C A   D C A  


[VERSE 2:]
                    C                D                A
All their games are ended now, their voices have been stilled 
                        C               D                   E
Their fathers built the tools of war by which they all were killed 
      Am               D                G                    Cmaj7
Their mothers made the uniforms showing which side they were on 
        A                   C                  D             E
And the young boys were the middle men for the guns to prey upon


[INTERLUDE:] D C A   D C A  


[VERSE 3:]
                      C                         D           A
You've seen the fires in the night, watched the devil as he smiled 
                       C                   D                E
You've heard a mothers mournful cry as she searches for her child 
       Am                D             G           Cmaj7
You've seen the lines of refugees, the faces of despair 
    A               C            D             E
And wondered at the wise men who never seem to care


[INTERLUDE:] D C A   D C A  


[VERSE 4:]
                 C             D                 A
Goodbye you lost children, god speed you on your way 
                     C               D             E
Your little beds are empty now, your toys are put away 
     Am             D              G            Cmaj7
Your mother sings a lullaby as she gazes at the floor 
     A                  C           D                E
Your father builds more weapons and marches out once more


[INTERLUDE:] D C A   D C A   D C A


[VERSE 5:]
                    C                  D               A
Down the hall their voices ring, their feet are on the run
              C             D              E
Phantoms on a winter sky, together they do come
Am             D                     G              Cmaj7
Faded lips and eyes of blue, they're carried in the wind
      A                   C               D                  E
Their laughter filled the countryside but they'll not laugh again


[OUTRO:] D C A   D C A   D C A   D C A   D C A
