  Am       Am          G          Am
I lived my life in the words of a Storyman,
Am         Am              G          Am
Watched my dreams from the years gone by,
         C            G          Am
Heard my voice in the songs of a Storyman,
D             Em   D            Em
Always by my side, always by my side;

  Am      Am         G         Am
I saw him first in a castle by candlelight,
Am      Am           G      Am
Turning round with a golden key,
          C         G           Am
I heard a train far away, and a whistle blow,
D             Em    D                  Em
Like a baby's cry, 'twas like a baby's cry;

  Am   Am           G        Am
Ravens stood on the walls of Jerusalem,
Am      Am            G     Am
Sailors danced at the borderline,
        C           G           Am
Light a fire on the road to the ferryman,
D                Em    D            Em
Emotions running high, in the summertime;

--> Chorus
C                   G
Take me back to the places I've never been,
C               G       C
Take me back to another time,
C                 G                  C
Take me back to a world I have never seen,
D          Em    D          Em
Only in my mind, only in my mind;

     Am   Am          G         Am
Late last night I met up with a lady-love,
Am         Am          G   Am
Dressed in red, didn't say goodbye,
      C         G           Am
Carry me to the last time I showed her what
D                Em      D               Em
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 -->

  Am       Am          G          Am
I lived my life in the words of a Storyman......
