Palace Guard
by Rick Nelson

[Intro]
E   B   A   E

      E                               B
With handmade silver sparkles, like a well dressed sequined whore,
      A                        B                E
Your lady-like deceptions keep reaching out for more.
         E                      B
And you ask me for nothing, and nothing’s not enough,
        A                                         B               E
And the fisherman he puts a claim on you but it’s nothing but a bluff.

         E                                 B
So with jealous hands tied round my back, I stumble cross the floor,
    A                            B                E
Not knowing how to speak, I keep reaching for the door.
  E                             B
I know you know me well I say, ‘cause I’m the Palace Guard,
  A                             B                   E
Remember me, we made love today at the King’s bazaar.

         B                              E
And you look at me with eyes that never see,
       B                                    E
I can feel something start to die inside of me.
      E                            B
So before you show me ev’ry thing, there’s something you must know,
     A                                             B                   E
I’ve worked with your friend John the Geek and his side walk trav’lin’ show.

  E                                   B
I know your childhood tailored dreams are ve-ry well disguised,
       A                                   B              E
So you don’t have to fake it anymore, it’s all been memorized.
       B                                 E
And you speak in wordless freedoms never seen,
       B                        E
Now I realize to you it’s all a dream.


Bridge: E  B  A  B

        E                            B
And you speak to me with feelings as real as sealing wax,
       A                               B                 E
As the nearness dawns the moth is gone leaving trailless tracks.

[Bridge]
E  B  A  B

        E                                     B
All you village people sing your songs of the morning sunlit sky,
          A                                       B            E
Don’t you think it’s time we moved along said the raven to the fly.

E    B     A    B      E    B      A    B      E    B     A    B      E    B
Ahh--ah    Ahh--ah,    Ahh--ah     Ahh--ah,    Ahh--ah    Ahh--ah     Ahh--ah

OR....
E                                      B
Ahh                                    Ah

A                                      E
Ahh                                    Ah

E                                                       B
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s all right,
A                                 E
na na na, na, na na na, na na na, na na na,
E                                                 B
It’s alright, it’s all right, it’s all right, it’s alright, alright,
A                                 E
na na na, na, na na na, na na na, na na na,
E                                                               B
It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s alright, it’s all right, it’s all right,
A                                 E
na na na, na, na na na, na na na, na na na
A                               B
La-a-ah na, na, na na na, na na na-a-na
A                                       E
na na na, na, na na na, na na na, na na na,

NOTE: The song fadeout has "Ahh-ah" sung at the same time as “It’s all right”. The "Ahh-ah" is above, and
here's the “It’s all right” with "na na na ..." as well.  It sounds as if there are either 12 or 13 "na's"

Like this:
            E                                                      B
Voices 1:   Ahh                                                   Ah
Voices 2:   It’s alright, it’s alright, it’s all right, it’s alright, it’s all right,

A                                 E
Ahh                               Ah
na na na, na, na na na, na na na, na na na
