[Verse]  
   
A5   D                     G                D                A
When cold wind is-a calling, and the sky is clear and bright,
      Bm        A        G               D            A 
Misty mountains sing and beckon, lead me out into the light.


[Chorus]

       Bm           G
I will ride; I will fly,
          D         A         Bm
Chase the wind, and touch the sky.
       G
I will fly, 
                  D             A         D
Chase the wind, and touch the sky.


D             G
Na-na   Na-na Na-na 
        D             A
Na-na   Na Na   Na-na Na
        D             G
Na-na   Na-na   Na-na Na-na
        D             A
Na-na   Na Na   Na-na Na


[Break]

Bm  G    A


[Verse]

A     D               G    
Where dark woods hide secrets,
    D                        A
and mountains are fierce and bold,
     Bm     A    G              D                 A
Deep waters hold reflections of times lost long a-go.
       D          G           D                    A
I will heed every story, take hold of my own dream,
      Bm            A        G           D           A       D 
Be as strong as the seas are stormy, and proud as an eagles scream.


[Chorus]

       Bm           G
I will ride; I will fly,
          D         A         Bm
Chase the wind, and touch the sky.
       G
I will fly, 
                  D             A         D
Chase the wind, and touch the sky.


D             G
Na-na   Na-na Na-na 
        D             A
Na-na   Na Na   Na-na Na
        D             G
Na-na   Na-na   Na-na Na-na
        D             A
Na-na   Na Na   Na-na Na
(Repeat this one more time, and diminuendo on these last chords)

D   G   D    A 

(Ritard on this last line) 
D   G   D



*Notes/Notation*
X: the string is either muted or not played.
0: the string is played open.

*The A chord during the second verse is played on the “go” part of the word “ago”; 
I added a dash to illustrate that.* 

*I am firmly rooted in omitting the B in the G chord, playing it as a 3X0033 
rather than 320033, but either way will work.*

*The Bm chord is difficult for first timers–and even senior guitar players to some 
degree–but just try it in barre form, and if that doesn’t work, see if doing 
XX4432 works better.*

Sometimes in the intro I like to throw in Csus2 chord. It sounds like it matches the recording somewhat.

I think it would be Bm A G D A instead of:

Bm D G D A
Misty mountains sing and beckon, lead me out into the light.

Bm D G D A
Deep waters hold reflections of times lost long a-go.
