3rd fret

I think the song is originally played without a capo starting on an A# in stead of a G - 
it is, however, easier to play this way:

Ph to Em7 on the Em in the end of each verse.

Capo 3rd

      G     Am       G      C
There was a man came to our town
C         D       Em
He wore a suit of red
G        Am        G      C
 He memorized with secret eyes
        G    D          Em    D
That he hid away in his head

   C      D     G       Em
He had a scar upon his head
             C      G     D
Where there used to be a crown
        G        Am          G         C
But he sold his robes at the five and ten
     G           D       Em      D
And lived on the edge of town

     G        Am         G      C
That fall he showed us a magic leaf
C              D        Em
That he could change to snow
G             Am     G        C
 He bought it partly with his grief
     G     D        Em    D
And partly with his soul

    C         D            G    Em
He scattered seeds in the alley way
    C     G         D
He never seemed to rest
    G        Am      G        C
And when you went to ask him why
        G    D       Em     D
All he ever said was yes

   G       Am        G      C
He made a swan from waving grass
C         D       Em
Beside a crystal shore
G         Am             G       C
 And a sunrise spun from broken glass
    G           D        Em      D
And many things wondrous more

     C        D       G     Em
But then his hands began to burn
         C         G            D
When he heard the news from the war
         G      Am        G       C
When we cannot find each other he said
         Am         D       Em   D
Then we can't run away any more

      G        Am     G        C
Next day with tears along his face
 C           D      Em
He passed us on the hill
G         Am       G           C
 No one thought to ask him to stay
       G          D        Em     D
And he knows that we never will

      G     Am       G      C
There was a man came to our town
C         D       Em
He wore a suit of red
G       Am        G      C
He memorized with secret eyes
        G    D          Em    D
That he hid away in our head

Em
