Tabbed by: Betty Lou


    Em C Em C   D Em D Em
 
            Em                  G                        
    It was late at night on the open road,
      G              D          C
    speeding like a man on the run,
                 G        Am            D
    a lifetime spent preparing for the journey.
            Em                G                          
    He is closer now and the search is on,
     G              D          C
    reading from a map in the mind.
                       G      Am                 G           D
    Yes! There's that ragged hill and there's a boat on the river.
          
                  Em            D             Em           D
    And when the rain came down,  he heard a wild dog howl,
                C             G  
    there were voices in the night, (Don't do it ! )
     C             G                           
    voices out of sight, (Don't do it !)
C                               B7
    too many men have failed before, whatever you do :
 
Em         D       Em             D     C
    Don't pay the ferryman! Don't even fix a price !
Em         D       Em                 C              D      Em   D
    Don't pay the ferryman, until he gets you to the other side.
 
+ Em D   Em 
 
            Em                    G                         
    In the rolling mist, then he gets on board,
     G                  D       C
    now there'll be no turning back,
                 G     Am              D
    beware that hooded old man at the rudder.
 
                  Em                          G                          
    And then the lightning flashed and the thunder roared,
         G              D       C
    and people calling out his name,
                 G          Am             G             D
    and dancing bones that jabbered-and-a-moaned on the water.
 
                  Em           D            Em           D
    And then the ferryman said, "There is trouble ahead,
        C               G  
    so you must pay me now." (Don't do it !)
      C               G  
    "You must pay me now." (Don't do it !)
C                                     B7
    And still that voice came from beyond, whatever you do :
 
Em         D       Em             D     C
    Don't pay the ferryman! Don't even fix a price !
Em         D       Em                 C              D      Em   D
    Don't pay the ferryman, until he gets you to the other side.
 
+ Em D   Em C B7
 
Em         D       Em             D     C
    Don't pay the ferryman! Don't even fix a price !
Em         D       Em                 C              D      Em
    Don't pay the ferryman, until he gets you to the other side.

02. Missing You 2:51
Tabbed by: Betty Lou


Capo 5

    C - Am - Dm     G
                           Missing you.
C              Am           Dm    G
    I've been missing you,       missing you.
 
C                       A         
    I've got the roses, I've got the wine,
Dm                                  G
    with a little luck she will be here on time.
C                        Am
    This is the place we used to go,
          Dm                     E
    with romantic music and the lights down low.
                 Am                       F
    And as you stand there amazed at the door,
                Em                            F
    and you're wondering what all this is for,
                 C                  Am
    it's just a simple thing, from me to you,
         Dm           G                  Dm
    the lady that I adore, 'cause there's something
                      G
    that you should know, it's that …

C          Am           Dm                  G
I've been missing you, more than words can say,
         C           Am                     Dm   G
and that I've been thinking about it every day,
         C       Am       F                 Fm
and the time we had just dancing nice and slow,
             C        Am             Dm            G  G7
and I said, now I've found you, I'm never letting go.
 
C                               A         
    There is no reason to the things that we do,
Dm                                     G
    you can break a heart with just a word or two,
C                            Am
    and take a lifetime to apologise,
Dm                               E
    when the one you love's in front of your eyes.
 
                Am                      F
    And I will fall to my knees like a fool,
                Em                           F
    if it's the only way of getting through,
                C                Am
    you see, if I think you are beautiful,
            Dm                            G         
    someone else is going to feel it, too,
               Dm                 G
    so there's only one thing to do, tell you that …
 
C          Am           Dm                  G
I've been missing you, more than words can say,
         C           Am                     Dm   G
and that I've been thinking about it every day,
         C       Am       F                 Fm
and the time we had just dancing nice and slow,
             C        Am             Dm            G  
and I said, now I've found you, I'm never letting go.
 
         C        Am             Dm               
    No, now I've found you, I'm never letting - - -
     C      - Am - Dm - G
    go.
    C          Am         - Dm - G
    I've been missing you.         (3x) ….

C Am G

Verse 1:
      C                         Am                  G
I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight,
                           Am          G   F
I've never seen you shine so bright, m m m m.
      C                     Am                        G
I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance,
                                Am           G       F
They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance,
            Dm  
And I have never seen that dress you're wearing,
        G                                      Am
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes,
   F          G
I have been blind,

Chorus:
             C  Em F     G            Am G           Am
The lady in red      is dancing with me,  cheek to cheek,
                F   G                   C  Em
There's nobody here, it's just you and me,
                      C7
It's where I want to be,
               F  E                    Am  G F
But I hardly know   this beauty by my side,
               Dm G                     C    Am G  C Am G
I'll never forget   the way you look tonight.

Verse 2:
      C                         Am                    G
I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight,
                           Am             G     F
I've never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing,
      C                         Am                       G
I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side,
                                Am                        F
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away,
            Dm               
And I have never had such a feeling,
        G                             Am         F    G
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight,

Chorus:
             C  Em F     G            Am G           Am
The lady in red      is dancing with me,  cheek to cheek,
                F   G                   C  Em
There's nobody here, it's just you and me,
                      C7
It's where I want to be,
               F  E                    Am  G F
But I hardly know   this beauty by my side,
               Dm G                     C    Am G  
I'll never forget   the way you look tonight.
                 Dm G                     C    Am
I never will forget   the way you look tonight.
     G       C   Am
The lady in red,  
     G       C   Am
The lady in red,
     G       C   Am
The lady in red, 
    G       C
My lady in red,

I love you

Tabbed by: frankowillo


CAPO: 4th Fret


         Am              Em            Am           Em
There is something on my mind, and I'm losing concentration
      Am            Em                 Dm         G
And I feel it every time, that you are near me.
        Am            F          Em            F
I could tell you all about, your picture at my bedside,
         Am           Em                Dm     G
I should call you sometime, and talk it over.

       Dm7          G           Dm7           G
'Cos I get a kick inside, and I feel a tingle too,
        Dm7                G 
It just comes from time to time, 
       Dm7           G               C
And it only happens, when I think of you,

          Dm7                Cmaj7/E 
Sleeping, when I'm dreaming, when I wake up, 
Dm7    G        C
When I think of you,
         Dm7               Cmaj7/E
Walking, when I'm talking, when I look up,
Dm7    G        Am
When I think of you.


        Em         Am              Em
Take me away, to a land of mass confusion,
      Am                 Em             Dm         G
And I don't know what to say, when I am near you,
        Am                 F          Em              F
I could stand here all day long, just staring at your window,
      Am              Em              Dm       G
But I have so much to do, that's so important,

       Dm7          G           Dm7           G
Then I get a kick inside, and I feel a tingle too,
        Dm7                G
It just comes from time to time,
       Dm7           G               C
And it only happens, when I think of you,

          Dm7                Cmaj7/E
Sleeping, when I'm dreaming, when I wake up,
Dm7    G        C
When I think of you, 
         Dm7               Cmaj7/E
Walking, when I'm talking, when I look up,
Dm7    G        Ab
When I think of You may get the feeling that I'm dancing on the ceiling,


       Dm7          G            Dm7              G
When I get a kick inside, and my head is spinning too,
        Dm7                G 
It just comes from time to time,
       Dm7           G               C
And it only happens, when I think of you,

          Dm7                Cmaj7/E
Sleeping, when I'm dreaming, when I wake up,
Dm7    G        C
When I think of you,
       Dm7                      Cmaj7/E
When I whisper to your picture, when I kiss it,
Dm7    G        C        Am
When I think of you………
Dm7    G        C
When I think of you

Dm7                Cmaj7/E
When I'm dreaming we're together, on my sofa,
Dm7    G        C
When I think of you, 
         Dm7                         Cmaj7/E
When I'm wishing that we're kissing, when we're dancing,
Dm7    G        C
When I think of you.

Tabbed by: JonPebble


CAPO 5


Verse1:
  Am            C                 G             Am
A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
      C              G              F              F  G
'twas light years of time since his mission did start
    Am     Em         F          Am
And over a village he halted his craft,
       C           G          F          F    G Am
And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star.


Verse2:
   Am         C              G         Am
He followed a light and came down to a shed,
        C          G                F          F  G
Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed, 
  Am              Em     F               Am
A bright light of silver shone round his head,
       C       G          F          F    G    Am
And he had the face of an angel, and they were afraid.


Verse3:
         Am          C      G            Am
Then the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear,
  C           G        F             F  G
I come from a planet a long way from here, 
    Am        Em          F          Am
And I bring a message for mankind to hear",
    C            G        F     F      G   Am     
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air.

Chorus:
    F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
C             G              F        F    G       Am
Peace and goodwill to all of men, and love for the child.


F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
        La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
C   G   F
oh, oh, oh.


Verse4:
     Am     C          G                     Am
This lovely music went trembling through the ground,
    C         G          F            F    G
And many were wakened on hearing that sound, 
    Am                Em        F            Am
And travellers on the road, the village they found,
       C             G           F          F     G   Am
By the light of that ship in the sky, which shone all around.


Verse5:
    Am          C           G             Am
And just before dawn at the paling of the sky,
    C          G               F           F  G
The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly, 
     Am           Em            F             Am
When two thousand years of your time has gone by,
     C           G          F         F G   Am
This song will begin once again, to a babys cry".
Final Chorus:

    F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
C             G              F        F    G       Am
Peace and goodwill to all of men, and love for the child.


    F G    Am          Em          F           Am
And I hear La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Am          Em          F           Am
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
     C           G          F         F G   Am
This song will begin once again, to a babys cry".


    F  G    Am          Em          F           Am
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
C           G           F     F  G
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,

La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,

This song will begin once again, to a babys cry".

Intro: D

Verse 1:
          Bm                   F#m               G               A
There are those who think that love comes with a lifetime guarantee,
       Bm                 F#m              G               A
But we know from those around us, that this may not always be,
         G      D      G             D      G     D      A
It's the simple things that come between a father and a son,
              G      D         G          D     G          D       A
But when they try to talk, the knives are out before they have begun

Chorus:
      D               A               Bm                    G
Well that was me, and I have seen the light that shines for eternity,
    D                G       A        D
Because I learned to say the words “"I love you"

Verse 2:
   Bm                    F#m           G             A
So many hearts have been broken by the lies of history,
    Bm                     F#m           G           A
And so many arms are still open for that final mystery,
        G      D         G        D         G     D      A 
We must show respect for all the rest, and what a man believes,
         G       D     G       D          G         D       A
And the one who died upon the cross, well he is the one for me

Chorus:
              D                A               Bm              
And he said "Come with me and you will see the light that shines 
    G              D                 G       A        D
For eternity, be strong and learn to say the words "I love you"

Bridge:
         Bm      F#m       G      D       Bm       F#m     A
And this endless road that we are on just keeps on going round,
            G                    D                     A
But there's one destination that always is here to be found

Chorus:
    D                 A               Bm                    G
So come with me, and you will see the light that shines for eternity,
     D                 G       A        D
Be strong and learn to say the words "I love you",
     D                 G       A        D
Be strong and learn to say the words "I love you", 
    A        D              A        D              A        D
The words "I love you", the words "I love you", the words "I love you".

      Dm            Bb            F               Bb 
The cafes are all deserted, the streets are wet again,
        Dm                        Bb        F                   Csus C
There's nothing quite like an out of season holiday town in the rain,
          Bbmaj7              G7 
When the tourists go and the cold winds blow,
        F      C          Bb    G9 
And my girl is on a plane, home...

      Dm            Bb            F                 Bb 
I'm never going to love another, the way that I have loved you,

It's taken me a little time to discover it,
          Bbmaj7              G7 
Now I know it's true, but fatal hesitation,
        F      C          Bb    G9 
Made me miss the show,


  G  Gm7    Fmaj7/A          Bb - Bb/C
Oh Romeo is standing in the rain,

Fatal hesitation, ah, fatal hesitation...

I saw you again this morning, walking down the beach,
        Dm                        Bb        F                   Csus C
And though you are a thousand miles away,
          Bbmaj7              G7 
You were only just out of reach, but when I got up close,
        F      C          Bb    G9 
And I saw her face, I knew it couldn't be so, no, no;


  G  Gm7    Fmaj7/A          Bb - Bb/C
Oh Romeo is standing in the rain,
    F  Gm7                 Fmaj7/A      Bb -  Bb/C 
And I, yes I know, I have let her slip away,


Dm     C      Bb  F 
Fatal hesitation, fatal hesitation,


Db                 Eb/Db                   F/C
I'm going to get on my____ boat and sail away;

Oh Romeo is standing in the rain,
    F  Gm7                 Fmaj7/A      Bb -  Bb/C 
And I, yes I know, I have let her slip away,

Dm     C      Bb  F 
Fatal hesitation, Fatal hesitation,
Dm     C      Bb  F 
Fatal hesitation, Fatal hesitation...


Dm     C      Bb  F 
I'm going to read a little Shakespeare,
Dm     C      Bb  F 
And get her out of my head, 
Dm     C      Bb  F 
It doesn't matter any more,
Dm     C      Bb  F 
I'm going to miss her just a little bit,

Just a little bit...

09. Much More Than This 3:10
Tabbed by: NBA96


F               C              Bb
 Sometimes the man in me gets restless,
    C                     Dm
 I need to get away from you,
       Bb                  C               Dm
 And spend some time with someone that I knew,
          Bb            C
 Just to see her for a night,
             F   C Bb
 And in the candlelight,
     Gm         Bb           A
 To talk and remember early days,

F               C               Bb
 Sometimes the woman in you's uneasy,
 C                    Dm
 I can see it in your eyes,
            Bb              C                  Dm
 Just like me you need to know, can you still fly,
           Bb              C
 Can you still arouse the passions,
      F  C   Bb
 Of another man,
     Gm                 Bb                  A  A7
 And if you carry it through, what would I do?

           D         G          A
 It would take much more than this,
      F#     Bm      G           D A
 To break a love so long in the making,
           D         G         A        F#
 It would take much more than talk or dreams,
      Bm        G          D A                Bb  C
 To shake so strong a foundation, more than this, 

F               C              Bb
 Sometimes the man in me gets lonely,
   C                  Dm
 When I am away from you,
             Bb           C            Dm
 And in the darkness of another hotel room,
             Bb             C
 If there's someone in the night saying,
              F C  Bb
 "It's gonna be alright" 
    Gm             Bb              A               Dm Bb Gm A
 To ease away the pain of missing you, what can I do?

           D         G          A
 It would take much more than this,
      F#     Bm      G           D A
 To break a love so long in the making,
           D         G         A        F#
 It would take much more than talk or dreams,
      Bm        G          D A                Bb  C D
 To shake so strong a foundation, more than this...

       C                          G
I can feel it in my blood, I can hear it in my footsteps,
       Am                                                  F
I can see it all around, that everywhere connections are breaking away,
                                      G
And people know that something must change, must change,

           C                           G
There are better men than I, who with courage and conviction
        Am                                            F
Are patrolling the lines, waking up the sleepers who will not decide,
                                    G
And do not think there's anything wrong

           Am                       F
But we are all living here in this beautiful world, 
         E              Am
Sharing sunrises every day,

We may have different lives, but for all of us here we will stay,

                C                      F
We're living in one world, sleeping in one world,
            C                        G 
Dreaming in one world, and no-one's going anywhere,
                C                     F                      
We're living in one world, working in one world, 
             C                          G                F G Am
Breathing in one world, we're just the same as anyone, whooooo,

     C                            G                            Am
I believe there is a God, but it doesn't mean that my God is greater than yours, 
                               F
It only means we all have the right to believe, 
                            G
'Cause nobody knows it for sure, for sure, 

              Am                    F
If there's a Heaven or Hell, or a sweet Paradise,
       E                       Am
Or a place where we all meet again, 
             F                                    G
'Cause with minimal change, everyone here is the same,

                C                      F
We're living in one world, sleeping in one world,
            C                        G 
Dreaming in one world, and no-one's going anywhere,
                C                     F                      
We're living in one world, working in one world, 
             C                          G                F G A
Breathing in one world, we're just the same as anyone, whooooo,

                D                      G
We're living in one world, sleeping in one world,
            D                        A 
Dreaming in one world, and no-one's going anywhere,
                D                     G

Take good care of everywhere 'cause this is my home too,

Praying in one world, trying in one world, this is my home too,

One world, one world, one world, ooooh,

Tabbed by: NBA96

The song The Simple Truth is a beautifull song Chris wrote in 1987.
4 years later in 1991 he was the centre stage of the global event 
"The Simple Truth Campaign" at the Wembley Arena in London which was raising money 
for the Kurdish refugees.


Capo 3

Verse 1:
            D  G            D
A child is born on a battlefield,
           F#m G             A
A soldier boy falls to his knees,
              G               F#m
And a woman cries in joy and pain,
              A       G      D
When will we live in peace again?

Verse 2:
            D  G                      D
A child is born where the wild wind blows,
              F#m G                      A
In a country torn from the south to the north,
              G                F#m
And a family runs from day to day,
              A       G     Bm
When will we see our home again?

Chorus:
              G               F#
When will we see the simple truth,
           Bm                  G
The only thing that's worth a damn,
                Em7                 D  A
The life of a child is more than a forest,
                Em7                 D  A
The life of a child is more than a border, 
            Bm  G  Em7  D  A
Could ever be.

Verse 3:
            D  G               D
A child is born in the desert sun,
        F#m  G          A
A tiny life has just begun,
               G                   F#m
And a mother cries for her hungry babe,
             A       G    D
When will I feed my boy again?

Verse 4:
            D  G                D
A child is born to an ordinary home,
         F#m  G              A
East or west, it could be anyone,
                     G                            F#m
But we all want to know, will my child survive to see the day,
         A         G     Bm
When we will be secure again?

Chorus: 
              G               F#
When will we see the simple truth,
                Bm                  G
That the only thing that's worth a damn,
                Em7                 D  A
The life of a child is more than a forest, 
                Em7                 D  A
The life of a child is more than a border,
                Em7                 D  A 
The life of a child is more than religion, 
                Em7            D    A               Bm   
The life of a child is only a heartbeat from eternity,
           G              Em7     D     A
We must believe, for the sake of humanity,
           G      Em7  D  A  Bm  G  Em7  D  A  Bm  G
We must believe!!!
         Em7     D     A               Bm  G  Em7  D  A  G
For the sake of humanity, we must believe.

Tabbed by: NBA96


Capo 3

 G                          C            D
Suddenly love comes in and finds me on open ground,
 Eb         B7       Em                      D       C
Nowhere to hide, nowhere to run, there's no turning back,
                   D        C D
And a journey has just begun,

 G                             C               D
Suddenly love breaks down the doors, there is singing inside,
    Eb              B7          Em                 D      C
And all of the light that's in your eyes, shining here tonight,
               D                            Em D C
Has woken the man in me, and the woman in you,
     D         G D C
The woman in you,

D                                   G              C      D
All night, heads on the pillow, and eyes that are never shut,
D                                  G           C       D
All night, rain on the window, but inside, we have so much,

 G                       C                D
Suddenly love takes me away where I've never been,
  Eb        B7             Em               D      C
Shows me a world I have never seen, I could only dream,
                   D                              Em D C
That I ever would find myself with a lover like you,
   D          G  D C
A lover like you,

D                                   G              C      D
All night, heads on the pillow, and eyes that are never shut,
D                               G         C      D
All night, body to body, and thrilling to every touch,

     G                       C                D
Oh, suddenly love takes me away where I've never been,
     Eb        B7             Em                   D       C
It shows me a world I have never seen, and I just want to be,
                  D            Eb                 F             G     Eb F G
Alone in your mystery, love me over and over, and over and over again.

Tabbed by: NBA96

Chris de Burgh wrote this song a few days after his friend Princess Diana
got killed in august 1997.


Intro: D

D                        Em         
 Shadows darken and the day is done
F#m              G
 And I cannot believe 
                                D    
 It's really true and you have gone
Em                       A       
 You were always here beside me

D                          Em            
 You gave so much as the Queen of Hearts
F#m                G
 To those without love
                                 D
 You were their voice when they could not speak
Em                     A
 A touch for the dying

            D                 Bm           
 And as we say goodbye I can hardly see
G         D          A
 For the tears in my eyes
D                        Bm
 You are shining like a million suns
                G              A        D
 And there's a new star up in Heaven tonight

D                       Em
 I wonder if you ever knew
F#m                 G
 How much you were loved
                           D
 And in the darkness of a lonely room
Em                     A
 Were you empty inside?

D                                   Em
 And as you fade away, it's like a light
F#m                 G
 Has gone from the world
                             D
 But I am sure that there is a place
Em                               A
 Where you will burn on forever

            D                  Bm
 And as we say goodbye, I can hardly see
G         D          A
 For the tears in my eyes
D                        Bm
 You are shining like a million suns
                G              A        D    Bm  
 And there's a new star up in Heaven tonight
                G              A        D
 And there's a new star up in Heaven tonight

Tabbed by: Edward Neve


       G       D          Am           Em
I can see you now by the light of the dawn,
         C         G  Dsus4     D
And the sun is rising slow,
         G          D                 Am       Em
We have talked all night, and I can't talk anymore,
             C       D       G
But I must stay and you must go;

         G       D           Am            Em
You have always been such a good friend to me,
              C           G Dsus4    D
Through the thunder and the rain,
                 G       D           Am           Em
And when you're feeling lost in the snows of New York,
           C          D      G
Lift your heart and think of me;

           Em                         B
There are those who fail, there are those who fall,
            C        G        Dsus4    D
There are those who will never win,
                 G        D             Am            Em
Then there are those who fight for the things they believe,
               C        D      G
And these are men like you and me;

        G       D              Am        Em
In my dream we walked, you and I to the shore,
          C            G Dsus4    D
Leaving footprints by the sea,
                G        D           Am           Em
And when there was just one set of prints in the sand,
           C       D      G
That was when you carried me;

         G       D           Am            Em
You have always been such a good friend to me,
              C           G Dsus4    D
Through the thunder and the rain,
                 G       D           Am           Em
And when you're feeling lost in the snows of New York,
           C          D      G
Lift your heart and think of me;

              G      D           Am           Em
When you're feeling lost in the snows of New York,
           C          D      G
Lift your heart and think of me,
           C          D      G
Lift your heart and think of me.
