This tab is sort of a hybrid between the original recording and a very cool acoustic version of this 
song by Richard Page from Mr. Mister that can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHOEQwwFLEo 
(thanks to ted.finn23 for that little tip!). Richard plays his acoustic version much simpler than my 
tab here. He does the verses soley in D, periodically using his index finger to hammer on the 5th string, 
3rd fret from the D formation. He does each line of the chorus in a G Am G D pattern and the bridge he 
does in Em and G. If you want to match the key of his version, capo 1st fret in standard tuning (in the 
video, Richard is playing it tuned down half a step with capo on the 2nd fret). 
And, just in case you didn't already know ... Kyrie Eleison is Greek (from the Bible) for "Lord, have mercy."

Standard tuning

CAPO 3 (capo 5 for key of original recording by Mr. Mister)

G        C           G             C             G             D  
Kyyyyyyyyrie Eleison …… Kyyyyyy yy yyrie Eleison …… Kyyyyyy yy yyyyyyyyyy

D                                G        D                   
The wind blows hard against this mountain side  
D                 G     C   
Across the sea in to my soul        
C                       G      D
It reaches into where I cannot hide 
                   G      C   
Setting my feet up on the road

D  C C  C  D  C C  C  

D                            G      D   C C  C  D   
My heart is old, it holds my mem or ies
D               G        C    D D  D  C
My body burns a gem like flame
C                              G       D     C C  C  D
Somewhere between the soul and soft ma chine
D                  G      C
Is where I find my self a gain

Chorus 1:
G        Am              G                C   D    
Kyrie El eison, down the road that I must travel
G        Am                 G               Em  D
Kyrie El eison, through the darkness of the night
G        Am               G              C     D  
Kyrie El eison, where I'm going will you follow?
G        Am          G              Em  D
Kyrie El eison, on a highway in the light

D  C C  C  D  C C  C  

D                             G       D   C C  C  D
When I was young I thought of growing old
D                     G       C  D D  D  C
Of what my life would mean to me
C                             G      D    C C  C  D
Would I have followed down my chosen road?
D                   G       C
Or only wished what I could be?
