Gordon Lightfoot - Welcome To Try


CAPO: 2nd Fret



[INTRO:] G

[VERSE 1:]
                        Bm
I have been down in the valley of tears
       C                    Am
I have stood on the highest peak 
C                      Am
For the best part of a week 
D                          Bm
Battered and bruised I had pulled myself through 
      C                     Am
Every scene I would never repeat 


[VERSE 2:]
G                        Bm
I have hung out with the beasts of the field 
         C                         Am
And with them I've spent many long nights 
C                     Am
Got in some awful bad fights 
D                    Bm
I came unstuck I was down on my luck 
        C                      Am
And I'm still getting over the bites


[VERSE 3:]
G                      Am        B7
Sounds of my own heart breaking 
                  C
Not to mention my mind 
A                
"Nothing can hurt me"
  D                                     A
A small voice said into a mike, "Take a hike" 
G                    A7
No one will lead me astray anymore 
        D                     G
You are welcome to try if you like 
A                     Em
Welcome to try if you like


[VERSE 4:]
G                      Bm
I had been down in the valley so long
      C                   Am
I had almost run out of respect 
C                     Am
Got in right up to my neck 
D                        Bm
Battered but wise to the truth and the lies
        C                   Am
That no layman would ever accept 


[VERSE 5:]
G                       Bm
Reaching for all of the good things in life
       C                      Am
Can provide some surprises, I guess 
   C                     Am
It may be the way we are dressed 
      D                            Bm
These threads that you see mean so little to me
           C                         Am
They don't count when they put us to rest


[VERSE 6:]
G                        Am             B7
Late about dusk, I would start to feel
                      C
One more day had been lost 
A                    D
Nothing I'd say ever seemed to convey
                            A
How I felt with that I have dealt 
G                      A7
All of my children are healthy and sane
         D                      G
They may say anything that they like 
A                      Em
Say anything that they like


[VERSE 7:]
G                    Bm
Sitting alone in the Blue Ridge Saloon
      C                     Am
Is no place for an angel to be 
C                    Am
Ladies make faces at me 
D                         Bm
Battered but clean, I had pulled my machine
        C                        Am
Off the road, I was too tired to see 


[VERSE 8:]
G                        Bm
Wearing a smile like the rim of a cup
       C                    Am
I will get down to my final point 
      C                  Am
There is no one left to anoint 
        D                      Bm
And the sowing of seed, was it good, yes indeed
           C                 Am
It thrills me, but only to a point


[VERSE 9:]
G             Am 
Use your imagination
B7                     C
Try every trick in the book 
A                       D
My mother said with the life that I led 
                   A
I'd be broke, holy smoke 
G                      A7
All of my children are healthy and sane
         D                      G
They may say anything that they like 
A                      Em
Say anything that they like
   G                           A7
If they want to preach and are not within reach
         Bm                     G
They may say anything that they like 
A                      Em       G
Say anything that they like
