A5       A5          G5          A5
I lived my life in the words of a Storyman,
A5         A5              G5          A5
Watched my dreams from the years gone by,
         C5            G5          A5
Heard my voice in the songs of a Storyman,
D5             E5   D5            E5
Always by my side, always by my side;

  A5      A5         G5         A5
I saw him first in a castle by candlelight,
A5      A5           G5      A5
Turning round with a golden key,
          C5         G5           A5
I heard a train far away, and a whistle blow,
D5             E5    D5                  E5
Like a baby's cry, 'twas like a baby's cry;

  A5   A5           G5        A5
Ravens stood on the walls of Jerusalem ,
A5      A5            G5     A5
Sailors danced at the borderline,
        C5           G5           A5
Light a fire on the road to the ferryman,
D5                E5    D5            E5
Emotions running high, in the summertime;

--> Chorus
C5                   G5
Take me back to the places I've never been,
C5               G5       C5
Take me back to another time,
C5                 G5                  C5
Take me back to a world I have never seen,
D5          E5    D5          E5
Only in my mind, only in my mind;

     A5   A5          G5         A5
Late last night I met up with a lady-love,
A5         A5          G5   A5
Dressed in red, didn't say goodbye,
      C5         G5           A5
Carry me to the last time I showed her what
D5                E5      D5               E5
Tender hands can do, and I'll be missing you;
Chorus -->

Follow the light that's shining on to where we will be going,
Up to Heaven, Paradise, or to the heart divine;
It's in the echoes of a child, waiting for the journey,
The spirit of one world;

Chorus -->

  A5       A5          G5          A5
