Gordon Lightfoot - Home From The Forest

## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am ##

CAPO: 2nd Fret

[INTRO:] G    C

[VERSE 1:]
                                          F            C
Oh, the neon lights were flashing and the icy wind did blow
          ~        Am                   F                 C
The water seeped into his shoes and the drizzle turned to snow 
    F                  C                       Am               E7
His eyes were red, his hopes were dead and the wine was running low 
        F            G     
And the old man came home
From the forest

[VERSE 2:]
                                     F               C
His tears fell on the sidewalk as he stumbled in the street 
        ~     Am                    F                 C
A dozen faces stopped to stare, but no one stopped to speak
        F            C               Am             E7
For his castle was a hallway and the bottle was his friend 
        F                G 
And the old man stumbled in
From the forest

[VERSE 3:]
                                  F                C
Up a dark and dingy staircase the old man made his way
           ~     Am             F              C
His ragged coat around him, as upon his cot he lay 
       F               C                Am            E7
And he wondered how it happened that he ended up this way 
        F           G     
Getting lost like a fool
In the forest

[VERSE 4:]
                               F            C
And as he lay there sleeping a vision did appear 
         ~      Am         F              C
Upon his mantle shining, a face of one so dear 
        F                C               Am             E7
Who had loved him in the springtime of a long forgotten year
         F               G 
When the wildflowers did bloom
In the forest

[VERSE 5:]
                                         F                 C
She touched his grizzled fingers and she called him by his name
            ~         Am              F                 C
And then he heard the joyful sound of children at their games 
      F              C            Am             E7
In an old house on a hillside, in some forgotten town 
          F          G 
Where the river runs down
         C        G   F   C
From the forest

[VERSE 6:]
                                      F               C
With a mighty roar the big jet soars above the canyon streets 
                ~        Am                    F          C
And the con men con, but life goes on, for the city never sleeps
          F             C            Am                E7
And to an old forgotten soldier, the dawn will come no more 
N.C.    F                G
For the old man has come home
         C        G  C
From the forest
