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 thingE7 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 prayingE7 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 landsE7 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 sufferedE7 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 echoesE7 Aunder arches where eternal children live forever blessed.N.C.
