Dan Andersson – Around The Beggar From Luossa chords

[Verse 1]
A E7Round the beggar from Luossa people gathered in a ring,
E7 Aby the campfire they sat and heard his song.
D AAnd of wayfarers and mendicants and every wondrous thing
E7 Aand of his longing he sang to them all night long.
[Chorus 1]
D A“There is something beyond mountains, beyond flowers, beyond singing,
E7 Athere is something there behind the star, behind my burning heart.
D AHearken, something goes there whispering, goes there calling me and praying
E7 A‘come to us, for of this earthly kingdom you are not a part.’
[Verse 2]
A E7I have listened to the tranquil waves that roll against the beach,
E7 Ato dream of wild seas’ rest has been my lot.
D AAnd in spirit I have hastened towards the formless lands
E7 Awhere the dearest thing we knew shall be forgot.
[Chorus 2]
D ATo a wild, eternal longing we were born by pallid mothers,
E7 Afrom the labour pains of troubles rose our first and anguished cry.
D AWe were thrown on plains and mountains then, to play with all our brothers,
E7 Aand we played there elk and lion, beggar, god and butterfly.
[Verse 3]
A E7I sat silent by her side, she whose heart was like to mine,
E7 Awith hands so soft she tended to our nest.
D ABut I heard my heart then calling: ‘what thou ownest is not thine’
E7 Aand the spirit came and bore me off to rest.
[Chorus 3]
D AWhat I love is far away beyond, concealed in distant darkness,
E7 Aand high and wonderful is my true way.
D AAnd amid this clamour I am called to pray before the Heavens:
E7 AWhat no-one has I want to own, take all the earth away!
[Verse 4]
A E7Follow, brother, beyond mountains, to the cool and peaceful rivers,
E7 Awhere in beds of mountain garlands all sea slowly goes to sleep.
D ASomewhere there beyond the heavens is my home, I have my mother,
E7 Ain the golden-sprinkled mists, dressed in rosy mantle deep.
[Chorus 4]
D AMay the black and salty waters cool the cheeks that burn with fever,
E7 Alet’s be miles away from life before the morning breaks above!
D ANot of this world was I, brother; hardships without end I suffered
E7 Afor the sake of worries, faithlessness and of my burning love.
[Verse 5]
A E7By a shore all dressed in seashells stands a gate of roses heavy,
E7 Atherein sleep the mouldered shipwrecks, and the tired men find rest.
D ASongs unheard and high there sing like violins in distant echoes
E7 Aunder arches where eternal children live forever blessed.
