Intro: Fingerpicking C Cmaj7 Verse 1: C F C Roadsinger came to town; long cape and hat. C G C G C Cadd9 C People stood and stared, then closed their doors, as he passed. C F C He strolled the empty street; kids banged on tin cans. C G C G C Cadd9 C *Riff1 Then the panting dogs began to bark, as the roadsinger sang. Chorus 1: Am G D F C Where do you go? Oh, where do you go? when hearts are closed F Am *G-Riff G When a friend becomes a stranger, nobody wants to know. Am G D F C Where do you go, where do you go, when the world turns dark, F Am G F C Cadd9 C And the light of truth is blown out, and the roads are blocked? Verse 2: C F C He stopped by a store, between the barrels and sacks, C G C G C Cadd9 C A child's face peeped out and gave a smile, and ran back. C F C Behind a misty glass, on a window-pane, C G C G C Cadd9 C *Riff1 A little finger drew a perfect heart, and a name. Chorus 2: Am G D F C Where do you go, where do you go, in a world filled with fright, F Am *G-Riff G Only a song to warm you, through the night? Am G D F C Where do you go, where do you go, after lies are told, F Am G F C Cadd9 C And the light of truth is blown out, and the night is cold? Interlude: (Humming and slide guitar) C, F, C C G C G, C Cadd9 C C, F, C C G C G, C Cadd9 C Verse 3: C F C Roadsinger rode on, to another land, C G C G C Cadd9 C Though the people spoke a different tongue, they’d understand C F C They showed him how to share, and took him by the hand, C G C G C Cadd9 C *Riff1 Showed him the path to Heaven, through the desert sand. Chorus 3: Am G D F C Where do you go, where do you go, to find happiness, F Am *G-Riff G In a world filled with hatred... and tears. Am G D F C Where do you go, where do you go, if no one cares, F Am G F C Cadd9 C And everybody's lost, Looking for theirs.
