City of Stone (Del McCoury)  

VERSE 1:
G                         Bb      G
I dreamed I was lost in a city of stone
G                           D          G
And the people that dwelled there were marble
G                          Bb                G
I listened in vain for any fountain’s silver tone
G                            D        G
In vain for any sweet bird’s friendly warble
 
CHORUS 1:
       C             F             G
It was silent as the grave in that city of stone
F               C
Not one soul to save
        Bb                D
Not one voice to cheer me on
      G
I was frightened in my heart
    Bb          G
And cold to the bone
G
As I wandered in my dream
             D       G
Through that city of stone

VERSE 2: 
G                         Bb      G
I dreamed I was lost in a city of stone
G                           D          G
And the people that dwelled there were marble
G                           Bb           G
I wandered the alleyways in search of my home
G                     D        G
At a familiar place I rang the doorbell
 
CHORUS 2:
C         F              G
No one re-plied, but the door swung open wide
F               C
So I stepped in-side
   Bb              D
My house to look u-pon
    G
All cobwebs and ashes
    Bb                 G
All signs of live were gone
G
And I feared for my soul
        D       G
In that city of stone

VERSE 3: 
G                                      Bb           G
The most precious of gifts come in the strangest of forms
G                        D      G
Sweet life quickens even in the charnel
G                                    
Sometimes we’re granted visions
     Bb            G
That serve us as a warning
G                              D          G
How our passing deeds are writ in stone e-ternal

 
CHORUS 3:
   C             F            G 
So make not your heart into a city of stone
    F               C
The higher that you build those walls
    Bb         D
The surer over-thrown
    G
For here stands a man
           Bb                G
Who turned back from too far gone
G
When he dreamed he was lost
     D       G
In a city of stone
G
Yes, here stands a man
           Bb                C
Who turned back from too far gone
      G                       D       G
Oh, I dreamed I was lost in a city of stone.
