CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C  F  C  G Ddim7 Am  F  G  C

                F                  C                G    
The last time I saw him, he'd been swallowed by the wood
         Am            F                C             G      
I'd have followed if I could, he'd have stayed had he wanted
    C      F         C         G      
Had he the desire or had I the will
        Am          F            C             G      
I would be with him still, but instead he just haunts me
  F            C                         F
I knew when he faded, I'd ne'er see him again
    Dm         Dm7/C            F          G
His laughter's embrace would no more me surround
    C               F                  C               G      
The chill that went through me, is the chill wind that blows
Ddim7       Am            F            G         C    
Through the soft midnight stillness of Chilicote town


INTERLUDE: F  C  G Ddim7 Am  F  G  C


                 F          C                 G    
The smell of the blanket he wrapped 'round my shoulders
      Am         F        C             G      
Comes back to me now on a faint wisp of smoke
      C           F              C          G      
Comes back with a vengeance that makes me remember
      Am                F          C             G      
Those nights 'round the fire, when fond words we spoke
     F           C                       F
That blanket was woven in some shattered village
        Dm          Dm7/C     F        G
That is gone now forever, may never be found
    C          F                C             G      
His people are scattered, their fondest hopes dashed
Ddim7     Am          F           G         C    
He'd have been better off here in Chilicote town


INTERLUDE: F  C  G Ddim7 Am  F  G  C


                F     C             G    
I knew from the start just where he stood
 Am         F               C         G      
About his intentions, there was no mistake
   C               F         C           G      
To stay, meant his dream, so dear to his heart
        Am           F            C          G      
Was the one thing he knew he must somehow forsake
   F             C                          F
He just couldn't see that the old ways were passing
  Dm           Dm7/C      F           G
A new wave was rising and he would be drowned
    C          F        C         G      
And like it or not, the history's written
Ddim7 Am     F              G         C    
Not   in the forest, but in Chilicote town


INTERLUDE: F  C  G Ddim7 Am  F  G  C


                   F            C            G    
There's sadness in parting from what we hold dear
          Am        F           C             G      
There's a danger in staying for fear we'll be lost
    C          F         C            G      
One half of us wishes to live out our dreams
    Am         F           C              G      
The other half reckons and counts out the cost
       F         C                   F
Though we may go on to a far greater glory
   Dm            Dm7/C      F          G
By knowing where destiny is sure to be found
  C           F             C           G      
I wish him no ill, though I wish him no fame
     Ddim7 Am           F            G         C    
Than such  fame as he'd find here in Chilicote town


INTERLUDE: F  C  G Ddim7 Am  F  G  C


                F                  C                G    
The last time I saw him, he'd been swallowed by the wood
         Am            F                C             G      
I'd have followed if I could, he'd have stayed had he wanted
