Notes:
The guitar figures are played in the verses.

[Guitar Figure 1]
All my father's legacy is handed down on angel wings

[Guitar Figure 2]
A bittersweet melody is now mine to sing

Every precious memory and broken-hearted tragedy

[Guitar Figure 2]
Will walk into eternity but not fade away

C             F            G                   F
  If you will go and not return, leave me some words of wisdom
C             F         G                  F
  If I cannot follow anymore, I promise to teach what I have learned

VERSE2:
Play as for VERSE1.

[Guitar Figure 1]
How do years so far away so suddenly evaporate?

[Guitar Figure 2]
Fortune smiles with teeth of jade and the greediest eyes


[Guitar Figure 1]
How I long for that embrace, the strongest arms and troubled face

[Guitar Figure 2]
Smokey air and awkward grace that made me feel safe


[repeat CHORUS1]

  Who was it that said to me   that heroes will live forever?
Am                       F              G
  And where are they now   now that I'm standing alone?
