                ONCE UPON A TROUBADOUR
                            As recorded by Nightwish
                        (From the Album WISHMASTOUR 2000)

First guitar plays the intro while the second strums once each accord.
Just listen to the original song and you'll know what I'm talking about.

Gtr I (E A D G B E) - 'Acoustic'


       Am                G         Am         F      Em       Am
  Gtr I

       Am                G         Am         F      Em               Am
  Gtr I

   Am               G                       Am
A lonely bard wandering across the lands am I
 Am                 G                       Am
Singing dancing finding answers to every why
Am7/E                          G               Am
The taverns are full and one crosses my path, too
F                    Em                    Am
I just might reward myself with a beer or two

      Am               G             Am
This inn the place of many romantic tales
 Am                 G          Am
On the loft women offer their sales
        Am7/E                  G           Am
But my eyes they catch a girl beat by everyone
F                      Em           Am
A slave she is but for me a rose undone

Am       F
Hear me sing
Am     C  Em  ... Dm
Watch me dance
Dm         Em       F
Play that lute of thine
      Am                Em
And share with me this dance

Am                G              Am
As she danced my eyes began to shine
       Am                 G    Am
There she was the maiden so divine
      Am7/E                      G           Am
How could I approach her with my outlook so poor
F                 Em                       Am
Her beauty being much more than I could endure

Am            G                   Am
So I asked if I could sing a chanson
 Am                G               Am
With a language of ancient and of lore
Am7/E                   G                      Am
Gathered the men around us me and the girl in rags
F                       Em           Am
Soon were the melodies heard by everyone

Am       F
Hear us sing
Am    C   Em  ... Dm
Watch us dance
Dm        Em       F
Sing with us this tale
 Am             Em
With a clap of hands

      Am             G                Am
The stories long-forgotten we still know
 Am                       G       Am
Performing our skills wherever we go
Am7                    G       Am
I end my story as I receive a kiss
F                 Em          Am

Am       F
Hear us sing
Am    C   Em  ... Dm
Watch us dance
Dm        Em       F
Sing with us the tales
 Am                         Em
Which the music will keep alive
