Tuomas Holopainen - A Lifetime Of Adventure chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Easiest ways to play it:
1. Standard tuning, capo 6
2. Half step down tuning, no capo (transpose 5 steps down to the key of Em, play open chords)
3. Standard tuning, no capo (transpose 6 steps down to the key of Ebm, play bar chords)
4. Half step down tuning, capo 7

-You could play with more people tuned in these different ways (combination of 1 
and 2 might sound very powerful, add 3 or even 4 and you'll have the entire 
orchestra covered… kind of).
-1 and 4 will probably sound the same, for your information.

Both lyrics and chords I transcribed by ear in about two hours.

======================

You can kind of guess the chords of course, but I'll still point out how I play it.
YOU MIGHT WANT TO TAKE A LOOK AT THE "Am/D" BELOW.

Am/D (actually it's a "C 6add9(no 5th)", but I wrote it as Am/D because that's easier to follow)

INTRO:

To      be            rich        is

To      have     a chance to say farewell

CHORUS:
Am
Story of your life
             C
Time of solitude and strife
              G
Freedom of the northern road
            F
Hoping many miles to go
Am
Promises to keep
                C
Countless gold fields to reap
          G
To be rich is to seek
        F
To relive the memory

Am      Cmaj7   Am/D      Fmaj7
Far off lands,    quests of old

Am      Cmaj7   Am/D     F
Self respect,     true        grit

Am     Cmaj7    G                F
Never care, my fortune, my wife
Am     Cmaj7    G      F
To      seek   is to be rich

Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory


BRIDGE:
Am                                  C
All the strangers on your path

                                              G
Crossroads that lead us from home
                                  Dm
The cooling hymn for soulful Yuletid hearth
Am                    C
All the songs of wilderness
                                    G
The truth in which you fall
                                            Dm                       F
They're your lost troves, but that's what you recall

CHORUS:
(Am C G F)
Story of your life
Time of solitude and strife
Freedom of the northern road
Hoping many miles to go

Promises to keep
Countless goldfields to reap
To be rich is to seek
To relive the memory
