i. The Turn Of A Friendly Card I
Key: Dm


          Dm        C         Bb              Dm
There are unsmiling faces and bright plastic chains

      Dm           A      Dm
And a wheel in perpetual motion

         Dm         C         Bb          Dm
And they follow the races and pay out the gains

         Dm        A          Dm
With no show of an outward emotion


          A                              Dm
And they think it will make their lives easier

        A                            Gm
For God knows up till now it's been hard

         Dm         C             Eb              Dm
But the game never ends when your whole world depends

        Dm        A        Dm
On the turn of a friendly card

       Dm         C                Eb           Dm
No the game never ends when your whole world depends

       Dm           A      Dm
On the turn of a friendly card


          Dm           C          Bb           Dm
There's a sign in the desert that lies to the west

           Dm            A                 Dm
Where you can't tell the night from the sunrise

        Dm             C          Bb              Dm
And not all the king's horses and all the king's men

         Dm        A           Dm
Have prevented the fall of the unwise


        A                              Dm
And they think it will make their lives easier

        A                            Gm
For God knows up till now it's been hard

         Dm         C             Eb              Dm
But the game never ends when your whole world depends

        Dm        A        Dm
On the turn of a friendly card

       Dm         C                Eb           Dm
No the game never ends when your whole world depends

       Dm           A      Dm
On the turn of a friendly card

       Dm           C        Bb          Dm
But a pilgrim must follow in search of a shrine

       Dm     A           Dm
As he enters inside the cathedral...

In this version I left out everything I was unsure about and I spent another hour on
