G            D             G               D

G                            Em                    C              D
Many tales I've heard of the soap stone bird, so I went along to see,
      G               Em                C           D
The acropolis and the passages and the temple masonry
        C              D                 G                 Em
But it all looked so familiar, like I've been there once before
   C                    G                       C              D         G
I felt my mind slipping back in time and when I saw him then I knew for sure

G            D             G               D

         G                      Em             C                 D
He came down the stairs in his courtiers and a soldier left and right
     G                   Em                 C               D
And his burnished golden bangles gave off a mystic kind of light
     C                       D                    G              Em
His eyes were black and they took me back as they bored into my soul
     C                     G                   C        D        G
And then the smile and we spoke a while of the medieval days of old

Chorus:
        C                     G                  C                  D
And the peace of mind and the quietness were the things I loved the most
   C          G               C      D     G
As I sat reminiscing with the old Zimbabwe Ghost

G            D             G               D

               G                    Em             C                 D
Those were the days my son we were rich my son Independent wise and free 
       G          Em         C               D
form horizon to horizon our riches held the key
     C                 D                     G              Em
But then they came in love sweet name to our bastion in the sky
     C                         G                   C        D        G
And just like the ways of the world today for the cause of greed to die


Chorus:
        C                     G                  C                  D
And the peace of mind and the quietness were the things I loved the most
   C          G               C      D     G
As I sat reminiscing with the old Zimbabwe Ghost

G            D             G               D


      G            Em             C            D
Then suddenly the reality of the day was all around 
         G                  Em                  C        D
And the footprints were the ancient stood were fading in ground
      C              D                   G                 Em
I was misty eyed as again I died and the people stopped to stare
     C                      G              C       D      G
As I watched my host the Zimbabwe Ghost go melting in the air


Chorus X 2
        C                     G                  C                  D
And the peace of mind and the quietness were the things I loved the most
   C          G               C      D     G
As I sat reminiscing with the old Zimbabwe Ghost

G            D             G               D
