Intro:  G

G                            Cmaj7/G              G     
When you're tired and you're far, far, far, from home
G                         Cmaj7/G        G
When you're lost and you're on your own
G                    Cmaj7/G             G    Cmaj7/G
When the fog comes a swirling, swirling 'round you
Em             G             C     Am    C
Mmm, 'til you can't see the path before you
C                       D7             G
You should know of the strangest thing

G                      Cmaj7/G         G     Cmaj7/G
You come down like the silent, silent snow
G                       Am            C   G    Cmaj7/G
'Til your mind feels as numb as your fingers
G                 Cmaj7/G             G     Cmaj7/G
It was many, many, many, many years ago
Em      G        Cmaj7/G  Am   C   D7
On the coast of Gondwanaland

        G             C        G        C
No one heard for the howling, howling wind
       Am               C             Am         C
No one heard when they whispered the strangest thing
       G            C         G        C
No one saw for the stinging, stinging rain
Am      C    Am         
No one saw... 
        D7        G
...The strangest thing

G                   Cmaj7/G   G      Cmaj/G
Saw you slip on the icy, icy street
G                Am     C   G   Cmaj7/G
And I smiled accidentally
G                   Cmaj7/G               G   Cmaj7/G
And you swore at the ice and you swore at me
Em      G            C     Am   C
And my heart melted instantly
C                     D7
In the warmth of the strangest thing

Am  D7  G (x2)
Am  D7  G  D7/F#  Em  D
C   D7

Am      D7        G
So I'm holding a torch up high for you
Am      D7            G
And the batteries are all brand new
Am  D7  G  D7/F#  Em  D
     C                 D7
But I'm scared they'll wear right through
        C          D7
Before you see me shining for you
       Am       D7
Before I can discover who
     Am  C    Am 
Can show me... 
       D7        G    Cmaj7/G
...the strangest thing

G  C  Am  C  Am  C

        G             C        G        C
No one heard for the howling, howling wind
       Am               C             Am         C
No one heard when they whispered the strangest thing
       G            C         G        C
No one saw for the stinging, stinging rain
Am      C    Am         
No one saw... 
        D7        G    Cmaj7/G
...The strangest thing

G  C  Am  C  Am  D7
