Wizard Of The Worldly Game

From Angel Delight, 1971

Dm F Am G

Verse 1:
    G     C          E           Am
For seven years I've stood right here
        Dm           F        G
And the flowers grow green by day
G           C          E     Am
All for the yarns that I was told
  Dm        Bb        Dm        Am
I spread my arms when they grew cold
    Dm     F       C
And warded off the rain

    C                    G
The bigger the tree, the deeper the root
    F                     C
The grass that is trodden underfoot
Give it time
          Dm     F     C
And it'll surely rise again

Dm F Am G

Verse 2:
I'm rocked by winds and I'm soaked by rains
And I'll bow and sometimes bend
Until I fall and crush the forms
Of a few small friends who stood through storms
And who will rise again


(guitar solo over verse and chorus chords)

Verse 3:
It's laughter? dust, the Derby's just
Redo? it or be done
Wild? to wind and wise to pain
Wizard of the worldly game
Treasoned into trust


(guitar solo over verse and chorus chords to fade)

If anyone knows the real lyrics, especially the third verse,
I would greatly appreciate someone sending them to me.
