INTRO:  | G |
      G                          C               G
I'm standin' at the doorway, my head down in my hands
      C               G                         D
Not knowin' where to sit, not knowin' where I stand
    G                          C               G
My father looms above me, for him there is no rest
    C               G                           D
My mother's arms enfold me and hold me to her breast
       G                                   C                   G
"They say you've been out wanderin', they say you've traveled far
     C             G                         D
Sit down, young stranger and tell us who you are"
     G                            C                   G
The room has all gone misty, my thoughts are all in spin
      C             G          D                 G
"Sit down, young stranger and tell us where you been"

                                           C                  G
"Well, I've been up to the mountain, I've walked down by the sea
   C                G                            D
I never questioned no one and no one questioned me
    G                        C                G
My love was given freely and oft-times was returned
   C             G                      D
I never came to borrow, I only came to learn
     G                               C                 G
Sometimes it did get lonely, but it taught me how to cry
     C                G                        D
And laughter came to easy for life to pass me by
   G                          C                G
I never had a dollar that I didn't earn with pride
          C             G                    D
'Cause I had a million daydreams to keep me satisfied"

	INTERLUDE:  | G | G | C | G | C | G | D | G |

      A                             D                A
"And will you gather daydreams, or will you gather wealth?
     D                 A                           E
How can you find your fortune if you cannot find yourself?"
    A                                    D               A
My mother's eyes grow misty, there's a tremblin' in her hand
      D             A                      E
"Sit down, young stranger, I do not understand
     A                                    D                   A
And will you try and tell us that you've been too long at school?
       D                A                          E
That knowledge is not needed, that power does not rule?
      A                           D                    A
That war is not the answer, that young men should not die?
     D            A                        E
Sit down young stranger, I wait for your reply"

     A                       D               A
"The answer is not easy for souls are not reborn
    D                  A                                 E
To wear the crown of peace, you must wear the Crown of Thorns
     A                      D                 A
If Jesus had a reason, I'm sure he would not tell
        D            A                             E
They treated him so badly, how could he wish them well?"

     A                            D               A
The parlor now is empty, there's nothin' left to say
    D            A                            E
My father has departed, my mother's gone to pray
         A                           D               A
There's rockets in the meadows and ships out on the sea
    D                A                      E
The answer's in the forest, carved upon a tree:
  D          A             E           A
"John loves Mary,"...does anyone love me?
