CAPO 1

   [Intro]
G  Em  G       C  D   Dsus4    D
G  Em  G       C  D

   [Verse 1]
G              Em         G                C
So I greet you now as the evening light is fading
         Em                          G             D
From the window of delights, I stood there so long ago
          G  Em             G           C              D
With all the colours of the new and the rushing world abounding
        Em               G                    Em            A
Wasting every breath and heartbeat, trying to wash away the rain

   [Chorus]
A7sus4     G  Em  G                       C       D
There's a  c h a i n  It binds us all in lives of wonder
Dsus4      G  Em  G            C             D
There's a  c h a i n,  hold it closely as you go
Dsus4      G  Em  G           C               D
Let this    n a m e   be your family and your shelter
Dsus4     G              D              G
Take this chain all your days don't let go

G  Em   G  Em

   [Verse 2]
G                   Em             G                     C
Stars come crashing down, from the world these days they shudder
          Em                               G               D
Round the houses in the dawn, we stood and watched them as they fall
           G        Em        G                  C               D
But let us walk on through the storm with all the might of life inside us
          Em                 G                 Em                  A
May your days be filled with gladness and your nights with endless calm

   [Chorus]
A7sus4     G  Em  G                       C       D
There's a  c h a i n  It binds us all in lives of wonder
Dsus4      G  Em  G            C             D
There's a  c h a i n,  hold it closely as you go
Dsus4      G  Em  G           C               D
Let this    n a m e   be your family and your shelter
Dsus4     G              D              G
Take this chain all your days don't let go

G  Em  G  Em

   [Verse 3]
G                     Em            G             C
May you grow up to be kind, may you grow up to be gentle
        Em                            G           D
May you go on to be loved and may you go on to be wise

   [Verse 4]
N.C.         G            Em  G                  C                D
And may each sunrise keep you warm and may each failure keep you learning
             Em             G                 Em           A
'Cause we'll never lose the living, all we'll ever lose is time

   [Chorus]
A7sus4     G  Em  G                       C       D
There's a  c h a i n  It binds us all in lives of wonder
Dsus4      G  Em  G            C             D
There's a  c h a i n,  hold it closely as you go
Dsus4      G  Em  G           C               D
Let this    n a m e   be your family and your shelter
Dsus4     G              D              G
Take this chain all your days don't let go

   [Chorus]
G6         G  Em  G                       C       D
There's a  c h a i n  It binds us all in lives of wonder
Dsus4      G  Em  G            C             D
There's a  c h a i n,  hold it closely as you go
Dsus4      G  Em  G           C               D
Let this    n a m e   be your family and your shelter
Dsus4     G              D              G
Take this chain all your days don't let go
Em        G
Dont let go

G  Em  G  Em
