Em                 D     Dsus2
 "All seekers this way".
D                         F#m
 A fairy sat and laughed;
Em                Bm
 Threw a petal my way.

Chorus 1:

 To the market-place.
D                  F#m
 I was still alone,
Em              Bm
 No one knew my face.

Chorus 2:

F                Am
 Then a stranger sang,
                G   C
With voice like the wind.
G                  D      Em    F#m
 Then the hails be-gan to sing;
Asus4  A    D    Dsus2, D
  "Wel-come in."

Bridge 1:

 Time rolls on,
         D/F#            Em
Ain't no good to sit and moan.
F#m   G     Em
 Time rolls on,
    D/F#         Em
And so we travel on.

Chorus 3:

F              Am
 Never did I i-magine,

What a dawn would be.

 On my way home.
D                    F#m
 I paused a while to gaze,
Em               Bm
 Upon the sacred stone.

Chorus 4:

F                     Am
 There I stood in the middle,
            G  C
Of the holy do-main.
G                     D      Em   F#m
 Then the people came out to say;
Asus4     A       D     Dsus2, D
 "Welcome home, a-gain."

Coda:

F#m   G     Em
 Time rolls on,
