                [Intro]

G/B  D/F#  Gadd9  A  A6sus4  A

G/B  D/F#  Cadd9  G  Am7  G/B  Cadd9  D/F#  Em  D/F#

[Verse 1]
       G          A
I got two strong arms
Bm          Cadd9
Blessings of Babylon
Am7      Fmaj7
Time to carry on
    Em
And try
    D/F#     G     A
For sins and false alarms
Bm      Cadd9    C#m7       G#m
So to America the brave
Am7  G/B Cadd9
Wise men save

[Chorus]
D/F#    Em      D/F#
Near a tree by a river
          G           A
There's a hole in the ground
         Em        D/F#
Where an old man of Aran
     Cadd9       G
Goes around and around
        Em       D/F#
And his mind is a beacon
       G           A
In the veil of the night
      Em             D/F#
For a strange kind of fashion
          Cadd9        G
There's a wrong and a right
          Am7    G/B  Cadd9  D/F#  Em   D/F#
But he'll never, never fight over you

[Verse 2]
      G         A
I got plans for us
Bm           Cadd9
Nights in the scullery
    Am7     Fmaj7
And days instead of me
  Em    D/F#     G      A
I only know what to discuss
Bm    Cadd9         C#m         G#m
Oh for anything but light
Am7  G/B   Cadd9  D/F# Em      D/F#
Wise men fighting over you

[Verse 3]
         G      A
It's not me you see
Bm        Cadd9
Pieces of valentine
     Am7    Fmaj7
With just a song of mine
   Em        D/F#    G     A
To keep from burning history
Bm        Cadd9         C#m     G#m
Seasons of gasoline and gold
Am7  G/B Cadd9
Wise men fold

[Chorus]
D/F#   Em        D/F#
Near a tree by a river
          G           A
There's a hole in the ground
         Em        D/F#
Where an old man of Aran
     Cadd9      G
Goes around and around
        Em       D/F#
And his mind is a beacon
       G           A
In the veil of the night
      Em             D/F#
For a strange kind of fashion
          Cadd9        G
There's a wrong and a right
          Am7    G/B  Cadd9  D/F#  Em
But he'll never, never fight over you

[Bridge]
A     D       G
I got time to kill
F#m          B
Sly looks in corridors
    E     E7
Without a plan of yours
  C#              F#m     A2/G#  A
A blackbird sings on Bluebird Hill
B             B/F#            G         Db
Thanks to the calling of the wild
Am7   G    Cadd9   D/F#
Wise mens' child


| Em  Bm7/F#  Gadd9  A  A6sus4  A  G/B  D/F#  Cadd9  G  Am7  G |


[Chorus]
D/F#   Em        D/F#
Near a tree by a river
          G           A
There's a hole in the ground
         Em        D/F#
Where an old man of Aran
     Cadd9       G
Goes around and around
        Em        D/F#
And his mind is a beacon
       G           A
In the veil of the night
      Em             D/F#
For a strange kind of fashion
          Cadd9       G
There's a wrong and a right
          Am7    G/B  Cadd9  D/F#  Em    D/F#
But he'll never, never fight over you

D/F#   Em         D/F#
Near a tree by a river
          G           A
There's a hole in the ground
         Em         D/F#
Where an old man of Aran
     Cadd9      G
Goes around and around
        Em        D/F#
And his mind is a beacon
       G           A
In the veil of the night
      Em              D/F#
For a strange kind of fashion
          Cadd9       G
There's a wrong and a right
          Am7    G/B  Cadd9  D/F# Em  D/F#
But he'll never, never fight over you

         Am7    G/B  Cadd9  D/F#  Em
No he'll never, never fight over you*
