INTRO: C   F  C  Am  G C F  C

                      F        C
When at first I came into this land
       Am        G     F
In the highlands I did dwell
      C              F       C
Where ancient winged masters taught
    Am        G        F    C
The depths of wisdom's well

             F            C
Emmanuel, he walked with me
    Am      G      F
And secrets he did share
    C            F        C
The order of the swirling stars
    Am      G         F    C
The laws of earth and air

    Am              C
The golden pipes of heaven
     Em            F
He entrusted in my care
    C      G      C     F
And I sang of the mercy of 
  G   C

                 F      C
In time I went a-wandering
  Am     G        F
Into the world of man
    C                 F       C
And though I knew the sacred songs
   Am       G        F    C
My separate dreams began

    Am                 C
And when I thought the pipes were mine
   Em                 F
My eyes grew blind as well
   C         G          C      F
My soul from heights of heaven fell
  G   C

Slumbering, sleeping

Slipping through seasons of silent night
The servant, the snake 

The soldier, a storm
  Dm      Em
A poet, a mother
A child stillborn
  F       G
A rock, a star
A drunk in a bar

How many more times, dancing the skin dance

Sorting the systems of violence, romance
Sobbing the sorrow, walking the wheel
Hiding the horror, fighting the feel
F           G             Am
Pushing the wheel, like a rock up a hill
Until, until, until

    C               F         C
I’m drawn so slowly step by step
    Am      G        F
Out of this darkened place
   C            F      C
So unaccustomed to the light
   Am   G      F     C
So wary of its grace

    Am            C
Oh, how I long to hear the pipes
  Em            F
I held before I fell
    C        G       C        F
And sing the ancient songs of love
  G   C

                 G     C           G     F  C
           Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah 

                    F    C
From out of dreams awakening
   Am        G        F
It seems ten thousand years
      C           F           C
Since I beheld my true love's face
    Am          G         F     C
And cried these cleansing tears

            Am      C
The songs returning one by one
    Em             F
Out of my memory's well
    C     G        C       F
How can I lay them at your feet
  G   C
C     G        C            
Can I lay them at your feet
F G   F C
