Lyrics and Guitar Chords Yusuf Islam - Roadsinger

Intro : C

Verse :
C                        F             C
 Roadsinger came to town; long cape and hat.
C                G            C            G            C      F, C
 People stood and stared, then closed their doors, as he passed.

C                              F                C
 He strolled the empty street; kids banged on tin cans.
C                 G      C      G                      C    F, C
 Then the panting dogs began to bark, as the roadsinger sang.

Chorus :

Am                G           D  F                C
 Where do you go, where do you go, when hearts are closed?
F              Am               G                     G7
 When a friend be-comes a stranger, nobody wants to know.
Am             G            D  F                     C
 Where do you go, where do you go, when the world turns dark,
F              Am              G       F         C      F, C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the roads are blocked?

Verse :

C                     F                       C
 He stopped by a stall, between the barrels and sacks,
C                     G      C      G            C    F, C
 a child's face peeped out and gave a smile, and ran back.
C                   F            C
 Behind a misty glass, on a window-pane,
C              G     C       G            C    F, C
 a little finger drew a perfect heart, and a name.

Chorus :

Am                G           D  F                     C
 Where do you go, where do you go, in a world filled with fright,
F       Am                G                 G7
 Only a song to warm you,  through the night?
Am                G          D  F              C
 Where do you go, where do you go, after lies are told,
F                 Am                 G        F       C    F, C
 And the light of truth is blown out, and the night is cold?

Interlude: -with Mmm's-

Interlude -x2-: C, F, C, C  G  C  G, C, F  C

Verse :

C                   F           C
 Roadsinger rode on, to another land,
C                 G       C                G         C     F, C
 Though the people spoke a different tongue; it under-stand.
C                            F                  C
 They showed him how to share, and took him by the hand,
C               G      C      G                   C    F, C
 Showed him the path to Heaven, through the desert sand.

Chorus :

Am                G            D   F              C
 Where do you go, where do you go,  to find happi-ness,
F           Am                G      G7
 In a world filled with hatred, tears?
Am               G            D  F          C
 Where do you go, where do you go, if no one cares,
F          Am           G  F           C      F, C
 And every-body's lost,     looking for theirs.
