A minstrel of the changing tide, he'll ask for nothing but his pride
     1               *              4                   5              *
Just sit him down up-on that chair, fetch some wine and set it there
4                7b                 4          7b                 5    *
.. Listen to the pictures flow, and follow the fingers where they go
1             4       *        6m         *                2          5      *  *
Listen to the strings___, they jangle and dangle while the old guitar rings


A Minstrel of the Dawn is near, just like a "step and fetchet" here
He's like an old time troubadour, wanting life and nothing more
Look into his shining eyes, and if you see a ghost don't be surprised
(Just) like me and you, he's trying to get into things more happy than blue


The minstrel boy will understand, he holds the promise in his hand
He talks of better days ahead, and by his words your fortune's read
Listen to the pictures flow, across the room into your mind they go
Listen to the strings, they jangle and dangle while the old guitar rings
