c#4 c# c# c# c# e         c#4 c# c# c# c# e
F#m7            E/F#  F#m7                E/F#   

trumpet:
    a4 b c#5 e f# a b........ e5 c# b3 a b c#5   a
F#m7               E/F#        F#m7              C#m7 F#m7 

              A9
I recall when I was small
      Dmaj7           E7  Dmaj7  F#m7
How I spent my days a lone
                   A9 
The busy world was not for me
     Dmaj7             E6  Eb7  Dmaj7
So I went and found my own
                  F#7sus4/C#
I would climb the garden wall
       F#/B   E/A   C#/F#
With a candle in my hand
        Emaj7         Bbm7             Dmaj7  C#m7  F#m7 
I'd hide inside a hall of rock and sand
                A9
On the stone an ancient hand
     Dmaj7        E7    Dmaj7  F#m7 
In a faded yellow-green
             A9
Made alive a worldly wonder
      Dmaj7            E6   Eb7  Dmaj7 
Often told but never seen
             F#7sus4/C#
Now and ever bound to labor
       F#/B    E/A    C#/F#
On the sea and in the sky
Emaj7         Bbm7
Every man and beast appeared
  Bmaj7             Emaj7  A7
A friend as real as I 
  
 Dmaj9                   Amaj7  
Be fore the fall when they wrote it on the wall
           Dmaj9           F#m7      
When there wasn’t even Hollywood
F#m/E   Dmaj9                   C#m7
They    heard the call and they wrote it on the wall
    Dmaj7
For you and me          
        Gmaj7 Fmaj7  Emaj7  Dmaj7 C#m7  Cmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7  G  C#m7  F#m7
we understood


F#m7         E/F#     F#m7        C#m7 F#m7 

               A9  
Can it be this sad design
      Dmaj7       E7   Dmaj7  F#m7
Could be the very same
               A9
A wooly man without a face
      Dmaj7           E6  Eb7 Dmaj7
And a beast without a name
                 F#7sus4/C#
Nothin' here but history
        F#/B     E/A      C#/F#
Can you see what has been done
Emaj7       Bbm7
Memory rush over me
      Bmaj7         Emaj7   A7 
Now I step into the sun  
 Dmaj9                     Amaj7  
Be fore the fall when they wrote it on the wall
           Dmaj9           F#m7      
When there wasn’t even Hollywood
F#m/E Dmaj9                   C#m7
They    heard the call and they wrote it on the wall
    Dmaj7
For you and me   
         Gmaj7 Fmaj7  Emaj7  Dmaj7 C#m7  Cmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7  G  C#m7  F#m7
we understood
