Verse` 1
F                                     F
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
F                                        F
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
F                                        F     
Would you hear my voice come through the music
F         F       G    F               F  
Would you hold it near as it were your own?


Verse 2
F                                     F
It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
F                             F 
Perhaps they're better left unsung
F                          F
I don't know, don't really care
F            G     F           F
Let there be songs to fill the air


(Chorus)
Dm              G
Ripple in still water
           F            F
When there is no pebble tossed
    D       G
Nor wind to blow 


Verse 3
               F                   F
Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
F                                F
If your cup is full may it be again
F                          F
Let it be known there is a fountain
F            G    F               F
That was not made by the hands of men 


Verse 4
F                          F
There is a road, no simple highway
F                                F
Between the dawn and the dark of night
F                        F
And if you go no one may follow
F            G   F          F
That path is for your steps alone


(Chorus) 


Verse 5
        F                   F
You who choose to lead must follow
F                          F
But if you fall you fall alone
F                                 F
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
F             G   F                F
If I knew the way I would take you home

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. It's not the correct chords and doesn't have the same melody either. The chords don't switch off at the right moments.
