       D                          G                  D
He was stranded in a tiny town on fair Prince Edward Island 
Waiting for a ship to come and find him 
  G                  A                    D            G
A one horse place, a friendly face, some coffee, and a tiny trace 
   D               A              D
Of fiddling in the distance far behind him. 

      D                               G            D
And a dime across the counter then, a shy hello, a brand new friend 
A walk along the street in the wintry weather 
  G                A                D                      G
A yellow light, an open door, and a welcome friend there's room for more
    D                     A              D
And then they're standing there inside together. 

             A                                      G              D
He said I've heard that tune before somewhere but I can't remember when 
       A                                   G              Bm
Was it on some other friendly shore, did I hear it in the wind 
       D              A                    G                 D
Was it written on the sky above, I think I heard it from someone I love 
      G              A                    D
But I never heard it sound so sweet since then. 

    D                               G                    D
And now his feet begin to tap and a little boy says I'll take your cap 
And he spun off in the magic of her smile 
    G                    A                D              G
And leaped the heart within him went when off across the floor he sent 
    D           A             D
His clumsy body graceful as a child. 

                A                                 G             D
He said there's magic in the fiddlers and there's magic in this town 
        A                                  G                 Bm
There's magic in the dancers' feet and the way they put them down 
D              A           G                  D
People smiling everywhere, boots and fiddles, locks of hair, 
    G                A                D
And laughter oh blue suits and Easter gowns. 

    D                                    G           D
The sailor's gone, the room is bare, the old piano's sitting there 
Someone's hat's left hanging on the rack 
    G                 A                 D                  G
The empty chairs, the wooden floor that feels the touch of shoes no more 
  D               A               D
A-waiting for the dancers to come back. 

        A                              G               D
And the fiddle's in the closet of some daughter of the town 
    A                                           G                Bm
The strings are broke, the bow is gone, and the cover’s buttoned down 
    D               A                     G                   D
But sometimes on December nights when the air is cold and the wind is right 
          G           A                  D
There's a melody that passes through the town.
