Am (x02210@1)    Am (x02210@1)          G (320003@1)   AmSailors (x02210@1)danced at the borderline,
        C (x32010@1)         G (320003@1)         AmLight (x02210@1)a fire on the road to the ferryman,

Chorus -->

CFollow (x32010@1)the light that's shining on to where we will be going,
GUp (320003@1)to Heaven, Paradise, or to the heart divine;
CIt's (x32010@1)in the echoes of a child, waiting for the journey,
GThe (320003@1)spirit of one world;

Chorus -->

  Am (x02210@1)     Am (x02210@1)        G (320003@1)        AmI (x02210@1)lived my life in the words of a Storyman......
