G6: 3x243x

Intro: Gmaj7 Dmaj7

          Gmaj7                Dmaj7
Like some night bird, homeward wingin'
    Gmaj7                Dmaj7
He seeks the sheltered nest
         Gmaj7               Dmaj7
Like the sailor's lost horizon
    Gmaj7               Dmaj7
He needs some place to rest
  A/B   
The songs that he's been singin'
  G/A
No longer make much sense
  G6                       F#m
And those strangers' cold perceptions
      Em            A11
They've killed his confidence


      Dmaj7   
Nightingale
                    Gmaj7
She sails away upon a sea of song

      Dmaj7  
Nightingale
                            Gmaj7
She serenades his lonely, lonely life along

          Em              Bm
When his tired voice is broken
         Em           Bm
His golden hope is gone
           Em                       Bm
She makes a lost soul's simple longing
        A11
Somehow not so wrong

       Gmaj7               Dmaj7
He was strong, but he was taken
      Gmaj7               Dmaj7
By the thought of his success
      Gmaj7                      Dmaj7
Those spotlight shadows, how they lured him
      Gmaj7               Dmaj7
And took him like all the rest

     A/B
But that old dream don't look good now
   G/A
No, it don't seem quite the same
      G6            F#m
He needs to hear a tender word
          Em         A11
Won't you sing him home again

     Dmaj7   
Nightingale
                        Gmaj7
She sails away upon a sea of song
     Dmaj7
Nightingale
                           Gmaj7
She serenades his lonely, lonely life along
          Em                Bm
When his strength is slowly goin'
       Em             Bm   
His pride is all but gone
       Em             Bm
She makes a foolish dreamer listen
  A11
To one last song
