Joan Baez – Winds Of The Old Days chords
[Verse 1] G Am The lady's adrift in a foreign land D G Singing on issues both humble and grand G Am A decade flew past her and there on the page D G She read that the prince had returned to the stage G Am Hovering near treacherous waters D G A friend saw her drifting and caught her G Am Unguarded fantasies flying too far D G Memories tumbling like sweets from a jar [Chorus 1] C G And take me down to the harbor now D G Grapes of the summer are low on the bough C G Ghosts of my history will follow me there D G And the winds of the old days will blow through my hair [Verse 2] G Am Breath on an undying ember D G It doesn't take much to remember G Am Those eloquent songs from the good old days D G That set us to marching with banners ablaze G Am But reporters, there's no sense in prying D G Our blue-eyed son's been denying G Am The truths that are wrapped in a mystery D G The sixties are over so set him free [Chorus 2] C G And take me down to the harbor now D G Grapes of the summer are low on the bough C G Ghosts of my history will follow me there D G And the winds of the old days will blow through my hair [Verse 3] G Am Why do I sit the autumnal judge? D G Years of self-righteousness will not budge G Am Singer or savior, it was his to choose D G Which of us knows what was his to lose? [Bridge] Am Bm Because idols are best when they're made of stone Em Am A savior's a nuisance to live with at home Am Bm Stars often fall, heroes go unsung Em Am And martyrs most certainly die too young [Verse 4] G Am So thank you for writing the best songs D G Thank you for righting a few wrongs G Am You're a savage gift on a wayward bus D G But you stepped down and you sang to us [Chorus 3] C G And get you down to the harbor now D G Most of the sour grapes are gone from the bough C G Ghosts of Johanna will visit you there D G And the winds of the old days will blow through your hair X
