...ROADSINGER... by Yusuf Islam
----------------...............

*from 'Roadsinger' (2009)*


Intro:

C

Verse 1:

C                         F             C
 Roadsinger came to town; long cape and hat.
C                 G            C            G            C      F, C
 People stood and stared, then closed their doors, as he passed.
C                              F                  C
 He strolled the empty street; kids banged on tin cans.
C                 G      C      G                       C    F, C
 Then the panting dogs began to bark, as the roadsinger sang.

Chorus 1:

Am                G            D  F                C
 Where do you go, where do you go, when hearts are closed?
F                 Am               G                     G7
 When a friend be-comes a stranger, nobody wants to know.
Am                G            D  F                     C
 Where do you go, where do you go, when the world turns dark,
F                 Am                 G        F         C       F, C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the roads are blocked?

Verse 2:

C                      F                        C
 He stopped by a stall, between the barrels and sacks,
C                      G       C      G              C    F, C
 A child's face peeped out and gave a smile, and ran back.
C                     F            C
 Behind a misty glass, on a window-pane,
C                G      C       G            C    F, C
 A little finger drew a perfect heart, and a name.

Chorus 2:

Am                G            D  F                       C
 Where do you go, where do you go, in a world filled with fright,
F       Am                G                   G7
 Only a song to warm you,  through the night?
Am                G            D  F               C
 Where do you go, where do you go, after lies are told,
F                 Am                 G        F        C    F, C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the night is cold?

Interlude: (with Mmm's)

C, F, C, C  G  C  G, C, F  C (x2)

Verse 3:

C                   F           C
 Roadsinger rode on, to another land,
C                  G       C                G         C     F, C
 Though the people spoke a different tongue; it under-stand.
C                             F                    C
 They showed him how to share, and took him by the hand,
C               G       C      G                   C    F, C
 Showed him the path to Heaven, through the desert sand.

Chorus 3:

Am                G            D   F              C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  to find happi-ness,
F           Am                 G      G7
 In a world filled with hatred, tears?
Am                G            D  F          C
 Where do you go, where do you go, if no one cares,
F          Am           G  F            C      F, C
 And every-body's lost,     looking for theirs.

Great stuff! I play without the E-string note in the F chord, otherwise it sounds tonally off...just personal choice :P
