Strawbs - The Plain




[Intro]
G  D  Em   C  G/B  Am  G  Em
G  D  Em    D  Em  G  D  Em    D  Em  G  D  C
Em    G  D  Em    C  G/B  Am  G  Em

[Verse 1]

The plain stretched out before me
   G          D          Em
As far as the slate grey sky

I told her I was leaving 
         G       D         Em
With the migrant birds, to fly

I said she might expect me
         G      D      C
With the coming of the spring
         Em
When the birds return back home again
     G        D        Em      C  G/B  Am  G  Em
With newfound songs to sing


[Verse 2]

I hit out on the highway
G           D      Em
High on the rising sun

I felt my spirit rising
   G           D       Em
My journey was newly begun

The joy of expectation
G          D            C
Rose in my heart with a song
    Em
The courage of conviction
G          D        Em      C  G/B  Am  G  Em
Carried my journey along


[Verse 3]

I bathed in the lake of comfort
    G          D        Em
The milk of my mother's breast

The son of constant sorrow
G           D            Em
Sank to his knees in the west

I prayed to my god for guidance
   G              D          C
To find there was no one but me
          Em
There was just the open highway
   G         D          Em      C  G/B  Am  G  Em
As far as my eyes could see


[Instrumental]
Em    G  D  Em    G  D  Em      G  D  C
Em    G  D  Em    C  G/B  Am  G  Em


[Verse 4]

Throughout my endless journey
            G             D        Em
I have been searching for paradise lost

I now retrace my footsteps
         G         D        Em
With the burden of infinite cost

I see myself returning
 G             D         C
Alone, with my head held high
    Em
The plain stretched out before me
   G          D          Em      C  G/B  Am  G  Em
As far as the slate grey sky
