{ Play Intro 6x }

                    A
We passed upon the stairs,
                  Dm
Spoke of what and when,
                  A
Although I wasn't there
                F
Said I was a friend,
                    C
Which came as some surprise,
                 A                           Dm
I spoke into his eyes -- I thought you died alone
                  C
A long long time ago

(First chorus)
   C
Oh no, not me,
   Bbm                F
We never lost control,
       C
You're face, to face,
         Bbm               (A)
With the man who sold the world.

{ Play intro 6x }

                        A
I laughed and shook his hand,
                  D
Made my way back home,
                         A
I searched for foreign land,
                      F
Years and years I roamed,
                   C
I gazed a gazers stare,
                     A                         D
At all the millions there -- I must have died alone,
                    C
A long long time ago.

(Second chorus)

Who knows, not me,
  C#                C
I never lost control,

Your face, to face,
         C#
With the man who sold the world.

{ Play intro 6x }

Repeat second chorus.
