RACE AMONG THE RUINS
Gordon Lightfoot

Intro
A A D G, D A G-F, Dx4:

[V1]

D DYou think you had the last laugh now
G Dyou know this can't be true
A AEven though the sun shines down upon you
G DSometimes you must feel blue [wait 2, 3, 4]
D DYou make the best of each new day
G DYou try not to be sad
A AEven though the sky falls down upon you
G DCall it midnight feelin' bad
[CHORUS]
A A/GWhen you wake up to the promise
D/F# GOf your dream world comin' true
D AWith one less friend to call on
G DWas it someone that I knew.....
A A/GAway you will go sailin'
D/F# GIn a race among the ruins
D A G ... F ... DIf you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon
[V2]
D DThe road to love is littered
G DBy the bones of other ones
A AWho by the magic of the moment
G DWere mysteriously undone
D DYou try to understand it
G DBut you never seem to find
A AAny kind of freedom comin' clean
G DIs just another state of mind
[CHORUS]
A A/GWhen you wake up to the promise
D/F# GOf your dream world comin' true
D AWith one less friend to call on
G DWas it someone that I knew.....
A A/GAway you will go sailin'
D/F# GIn a race among the ruins
D A G ... F ... DIf you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon
[V3]
D DSo take the best of all that's left
G DYou know this cannot last
A AEven though your mother was you maker
G DFrom her apron strings you've passed.
D DJust think about the fool
G DWho by his virtue can be found
A AIn a most unusual situation
G DPlayin' jester to the clown
[CHORUS x 2]
A A/GWhen you wake up to the promise
D/F# GOf your dream world comin' true
D AWith one less friend to call on
G DWas it someone that I knew.....
A A/GAway you will go sailin'
D/F# GIn a race among the ruins
D A G ... F ... DIf you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon
A A/GWhen you wake up to the promise
D/F# GOf your dream world comin' true
D AWith one less friend to call on
G DWas it someone that I knew.....
A A/GAway you will go sailin'
D/F# GIn a race among the ruins
D A G ... F ... D______If you plan to face tomorrow Do it soon_______________
