[Verse]
A                              A
Once upon a time I stalked the streets on raining evenings
         Dmaj9                          A    A/G
When the distant sea blended with the sky
     A                              A
Past Coliseums filled with brass on pavements carved from toasted glass
  Dmaj9                          A    
I carried in my heart a word or two


[Chorus]
     F#7sus4
Your dashing horseman all gone away
     Dmaj7
Left you the stable bill to pay
    F#7sus4                           Dmaj7
And now the golden calf has turned to clay
F#7sus4
All my feelings dressed in gloves
         Dmaj7
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#7sus4                               Dmaj7
White and open-necked you would still play


[Verse]
A                             A
I'd resort to sleepwalking to catch the mood that fills the sails
     Dmaj9                               A    A/G
With harvest nets and tides don't ever bring
    A                              Dmaj9  
But every night was Halloween, and every friend fell in between
    Dmaj9                          A  
And how capricious nature ruled my mind


[Chorus]
     F#7sus4
Your dashing horseman all gone away
     Dmaj7
Left you the stable bill to pay
    F#7sus4                           Dmaj7
And now the golden calf has turned to clay
F#7sus4
All my feelings dressed in gloves
         Dmaj7
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#7sus4                               Dmaj7
White and open-necked you would still play

[Verse]
A                              A
Once upon a time I stalked the streets on raining evenings
         Dmaj9                          A    A/G
When the distant sea blended with the sky
   A                                Dmaj9  
My mouth was full of cigarettes, my hair is full of long-term bets
    Dmaj9                              A    A/G
But you would always make me see the day  


[Chorus]
     F#7sus4
Your dashing horseman all gone away
     Dmaj7
Left you the stable bill to pay
    F#7sus4                           Dmaj7
And now the golden calf has turned to clay
F#7sus4
All my feelings dressed in gloves
         Dmaj7
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#7sus4                               Dmaj7
White and open-necked you would still play

Dmaj7                             F#7sus4            Dmaj7    
  I sound so different these days,  I barely can believe I'm me
F#7sus4                    Dmaj7    
  If I didn't know better,   I would swear I was someone else
F#7sus4                  Dmaj7    
   Lord I can't believe,    I don't believe I'm me
F#7sus4       Dmaj7    
   But who on earth could I be?

[Chorus]

Your dashing horseman all gone away
     Dmaj7
Left you the stable bill to pay
    F#7sus4                           Dmaj7
And now the golden calf has turned to clay
F#7sus4
All my feelings dressed in gloves
         Dmaj7
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#7sus4                               Dmaj7
White and open-necked you would still play, play, play, play ...


[Chorus]
     F#7sus4
Your dashing horseman all gone away
     Dmaj7
Left you the stable bill to pay
    F#7sus4                           Dmaj7
And now the golden calf has turned to clay
F#7sus4
All my feelings dressed in gloves
         Dmaj7
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#7sus4                               Dmaj7
White and open-necked you would still play
