VERSE 1

Am                Em G
We told our tales as we
Am                 Em  G
sat under mornin's sleepy
Am              Em G
sky

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

Am                   Em G
With all the colours of the
Am              Em G
sunrise shining in our
Am              Em G
eyes

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

F                 Em   G
One, then another with a 
F           Em G
story of yesterday's
Am          Em G
lives

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

F             Em  G
or of a lover who had
F           Em   G
gone in a moment of
Am          Em G
strife

[Pedal Steel Guitar solo over the same chords]

VERSE 2

Am                  Em G
No thought of sleep ever
Am              Em   G
dwells upon the wise man's
Am              Em G
mind

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

Am               Em G
Some task or audience 
Am                    Em G
stealing every moment of his
Am              Em G
time

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

F                       Em   G
Thus we have learned to live while
F                  Em   G
mortal man lies waiting to
Am          Em G
die

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

F                  Em   G
How can we do what must be
F            Em  G
done in just one short
Am          Em G
life?


BRIDGE

C#m
And if you ask, then you should
Ab
know, if you still doubt you should be
F
told, it was not we that made it
Ab
so, it was by those who went
  Am
before...

Am              Em G
Am              Em G

CHORUS
Am                  Em G
And there you sit tomorrow's
Am                        Em   G
child, so full of love so full of
Am                         Em   G
life, but you must rise to meet the
Am                    Em G
day, lest you become another
Am                        Em G
tale, and there you sit tomorrow's   ...(repeat CHORUS and FADE)

I remember singing this at my high school talent show.  That was in 1979 and 
I got some very nice complements on it.
