Intro: Fm Fm7 Eb Cm C C7


Bb                        F
The man appeared to me inside that yellow wood.
Bb                                      F
I'd carved his name in the dirt, at the crossroads where we stood.
He said, are you looking for directions?
I said, gee, I wish you would.
      C                             C7
Which way to the infinite road that unwinds from within?

                    F                Bb          F
He said, follow the distant light. Oh you know I will!
F                                 Bb                 F
Follow the distant light, just a little bit over the hill
F                                Bb                  F
Follow the distant light and although you'll never near it.
You can travel on forever and you'll never be back here.
I said, alright (hoo, yeah, distant light)

Bb                                 F
The stranger appeared to me, he hopped down from his tree.
        Bb                               F
He said, I can give you anything, but you know that nothing's free.
    Bb                                    F
Well I could take it or leave it. I said, well what do you want from me.
         C                                               C7
He said, nothing much really, just a small token of appreciation
That would mean so little to man like you and so much to a man like me.

          F                Bb           F
Gimme the distant light.Oh no I cannot do it
          F                 Bb               F
Gimme the distant light, he said through his teeth
          F                               Bb            F
Gimme the distant light, you know I ain't quite yet through with it
As I saw it shining dimly through the branches of his tree
I walked on (yeah, distant light)

Fm Fm7 Eb Cm C C7

              F                              Bb                 F
Following the distant light, like the way some people look for parking
              F                       Bb                  F
Following the distant light, yeah and tripping all over my feet
                   F                     Bb             F                    Bb
But following the distant light, Lord, I know if I keep walking, I'll never touch it,
Bb                                                     F
But as long as I move it'll shine down on me, shine on me

ooh, yeah, distant light
