[Intro]
| F#m E/G# | A B | F#m E/G# | D A |
| F#m E/G# | A B | F#m E/G# | D A | Bm7 A/C# D E | F#m E/G#

[Verse 1]
       A          B
I got two strong arms
C#m          D 
Blessings of Babylon
Bm      G
Time to carry on
    F#m
And try
    E/G#     A     B
For sins and false alarms
C#m      D        D#m           A#m
So to America the brave
Bm   A/C# D
Wise men save

[Chorus]
E       F#m      E/G#
Near a tree by a river
          A           B
There's a hole in the ground
         F#m        E/G#
Where an old man of Aran
     D          A
Goes around and around
        F#m       E/G#
And his mind is a beacon
       A           B
In the veil of the night
      F#m             E/G#
For a strange kind of fashion
          D           A
There's a wrong and a right
          Bm7    A/C#  D     E    F#m   E/G#
But he'll never, never fight over you

[Verse 2]
      A         B
I got plans for us
C#m           D
Nights in the scullery
    Bm     G
And days instead of me
  F#m    E/G#    A         B
I only know what to discuss
C#m    D            D#m         A#m
Oh for anything but light
Bm7  A/C#   D     E    F#m      E/G#
Wise men fighting over you

[Verse 3]
         A      B
It's not me you see
C#m       D
Pieces of valentine
     Bm     G
With just a song of mine
   F#m       E/G#    A     B
To keep from burning history
C#m        D            D#m     A#m
Seasons of gasoline and gold
Bm   A/C# D
Wise men fold

[Chorus]
E       F#m      E/G#
Near a tree by a river
          A           B
There's a hole in the ground
         F#m        E/G#
Where an old man of Aran
     D          A
Goes around and around
        F#m       E/G#
And his mind is a beacon
       A           B
In the veil of the night
      F#m             E/G#
For a strange kind of fashion
          D           A
There's a wrong and a right
          Bm7    A/C#  D     E    G     C
But he'll never, never fight over you

[Bridge]
      F       Bb        A
I got time to kill
             D/F#
Sly looks in corridors
    G     F
Without a plan of yours
  Esus4     E        Am  G/B  C
A blackbird sings on Bluebird Hill
D             D/C            Bb         Eb
Thanks to the calling of the wild
Cm   Bb/D  Eb   F
Wise mens' child

[Middle 8]
|Gm F   | Bb C  |Gm F/A | Eb Bb |
|Gm F   | Bb C  |Gm F/A | Eb Bb |Cm Bb/D Eb

[Chorus]
F      Gm        F/A
Near a tree by a river
          Bb          C
There's a hole in the ground
         Gm         F/A
Where an old man of Aran
      Eb         Bb
Goes around and around
        Gm        F/A
And his mind is a beacon
       Bb          C
In the veil of the night
      Gm              F/A
For a strange kind of fashion
          Eb          Bb
There's a wrong and a right
          Cm7    Bb/D  Eb
But he'll never, never fight

[Outro]
F      Gm        F/A
Near a tree by a river
          Bb          C
There's a hole in the ground
         Gm         F/A
Where an old man of Aran
      Eb         Bb
Goes around and around
        Gm        F/A
And his mind is a beacon
       Bb          C
In the veil of the night
      Gm              F/A
For a strange kind of fashion
          Eb          Bb
There's a wrong and a right
          Cm7    Bb/D  Eb    F    Cm7   Bb/D    Eb
But he'll never, never fight over you
F        Cm7    Bb/D  Eb    F    Gm
No he'll never, never fight over you
