[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]
       G
I can see myself it's a golden sunrise

 Em
Young boy open up your eyes

        Am
It's supposed to be your day


     C
Now off you go horizon bound 

     D
And you won't stop until you've found 

      G
Your own kind of way


         G
And the wind will whip your tousled hair

    Em
The sun, the rain, the sweet despair, 

 Am
Great tales of love and strife


        C
And somewhere on your path to glory 

 D                              G
You will write your story of a life

[Verse 2]
     G
And all the towns that you walk through

    Em
And all the people that you talk to

 Am
Sing you their songs

      C
And there are times you change your stride

  D
There are times you can't decide 

  G
Still you go on


               G
And then the young girls dance their gypsy tunes

     Em
And share the secrets of the moon

    Am
So soon you find a wife


      C
And though she sees your dreams go poorly

  D                              G
Still she joins your story of a life


Em G

[Verse 3]
         G
So you settle down and the children come

         Em
And you find a place that you come from

        Am
Your wandering is done


     C
And all your dreams of open spaces 

 D
You find in your children's faces 

 G
One by one


     G
And all the trips you know you missed 

    Em
And all the lips you never kissed

      Am
Cut through you like a knife


     C                                D
And now you see stretched out before thee

                         G
Just another story of a life

[Bridge] 
        D
So what do you do now? 

                  Em
When she looks at you now? 
  
                F
You know those same old jokes all the jesters tell

     G
You tell them to her now

             F
And all the same old songs all the minstrels sang

     G
You sing 'em to her now 

               D
But it don't matter anyhow 

            Em
'Cause she knows by now

[Verse 4]
           G
So every chance you take don't mean a thing

        Em
What variations can you bring

         Am
To this shop worn melody

          C
And the years roll by like a tollin' bell

         D
It's battered merchandise you sell

     G
Not well she can see


                   G
And though she's heard it all a thousand times

  Em
Couched in your attempted rhymes

        Am
She'll march to your drum and fife

           C
But the question that goes up before me

  D                           G
Where's my magic story of a life?

[Verse 5]
        G
Now sometimes words can serve me well

   Em
Sometimes words can go to hell

    Am
For all that they do

          C
And for every dream that took me high

         D
There's been a dream that's passed me by

   G
I know it's so true


           G
And I can see it clear out to the end

           Em
And I'll whisper to her now again

  Am
Because she shared my life

     C
For more than all the ghosts of glory

 D
She makes up the story

 Am              D
She's the only story

Am7 D   G
Of  my life
