Minstrel Of The Dawn chords
Gordon Lightfoot

Capo I or III

D                   Dsus4
The minstrel of the dawn is here
   G                  A
To make you laugh and bend your ear
D                   Dsus4
Up the steps you ll hear him climb
G                         A
All full of thoughts, all full of rhymes
G             C
Listen to the pictures flow
 G                C                 A
Across the room into your mind they go
D             G
Listen to the strings
     Bm         D
They jangle and dangle
          E          A
While the old guitar rings

D                   Dsus4
The minstrel of the dawn is he
G                A
Not too wise but oh so free
D                      Dsus4
He ll talk of life out on the street
G                     A
He ll play it sad and say it sweet
G             C
Look into his shining face
   G                 C             A
Of loneliness you ll always find a trace
D                G
Just like me and you
     Bm             D
He s trying  to get into things
     E          A
More happy than blue

Em A 2x

D                 Dsus4
A minstrel of the changing  tide
G                     A
He ll ask for nothing but his pride
D                  Dsus4
Just sit him down upon that chair
G                      A
Go fetch some wine and set it there
G             C
Listen to the pictures flow
 G                C                 A
Across the room into your mind they go
D             G
Listen to the strings
     Bm         D
They jangle and dangle
          E          A
While the old guitar rings

D                 Dsus4
A minstrel of the dawn is near
G                   A
Just like a step  n fetch it here
D                     Dsus4
He s like an old time troubadour
G                     A
Just wanting life and nothing more
G             A
Look into his shining eyes
G                      C           A
And if you see a ghost don t be surprised
D           G
Like me and you
     Bm                  D
He s trying  to get into things
     E          A
More happy than blue

D                     Dsus4
The minstrel boy will understand
G                  A
He holds a promise in his hand
D                  Dsus4
He talks of better days ahead
G                     A
And by his words your fortune s read
G             A
Listen to the pictures flow
 G                C                 A
Across the room into your mind they go
D             G
Listen to the strings
     Bm         D
They jangle and dangle
          E          A
While the old guitar rings

D                   Dsus4
The minstrel of the dawn is gone
G                   A
I hope he ll call before too long
D                   Dsus4
And if you meet him you must be
G                 A
The victim of his minstrelsy
      G              D
He ll sing for you a song
    A               D  A D
The minstrel of the dawn
