Verse` 1 G C If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine c G And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung G C Would you hear my voice come through the music C G D C G Would you hold it near as it were your own? Verse 2 G C It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken C G Perhaps they're better left unsung G C I don't know, don't really care G D C G Let there be songs to fill the air (Chorus) Am D Ripple in still water G C When there is no pebble tossed A D Nor wind to blow Verse 3 G C Reach out your hand if your cup be empty C G If your cup is full may it be again G C Let it be known there is a fountain G D C G That was not made by the hands of men Verse 4 G C There is a road, no simple highway C G Between the dawn and the dark of night G C And if you go no one may follow G D C G That path is for your steps alone (Chorus) Verse 5 G C You who choose to lead must follow C G But if you fall you fall alone G C If you should stand then who's to guide you? G D C G If I knew the way I would take you home
