Chords for "Strangers"

From: Harlan L Thompson


  C                 F        G
Where are you going I don't mind
        C                       F        G
I've killed my world and I've killed my time
     C            F         G
So where do I go what do I see
        C                  F   G
I see many people coming after me
     C                    F        E
So where are you going to I don't mind
       Am       Am/G       F        C
If I live too long I'm afraid I'll die
   F                      C        E
So I will follow you wherever you go
           Am    Am/G          F      C
If your offered hand is still open to me

 E        E7       Am          F
Strangers on this road we are on
  C         G           C   C/B  F C G
We are not two; we are one

 C                     F        G
So you've been where I've just come
  C                         F    G
>From the land that brings losers on
 C                      F       G
So we will share this road we walk
     C                   F          G
And mind our mouths and beware our talk
       C                      F        E
Till peace we find tell you what I'll do
          Am      Am/G         F        C
All the things I own I will share with you
           F                   C    E
And if I feel tomorrow like I feel today
        Am          Am/G              F     C
We'll take what we want and give the rest away ...CHORUS

 C            F      G
Holy man and holy priest
       C                     F          G
This love of life makes me weak in my knees
      C                 F         G
And when we get there make your play
      C                       F        G
Cos soon I feel you're gonna carry us away
         C              F        E
In a promised lie you made us believe
     Am   Am/G         F        C
For many men there is so much grief
         F                    C         E
And my mind is proud but it aches with rage
          Am       Am/G       F         C
And if I live too long I'm afraid I'll die ...CHORUS

   E       E7       Am         F
Strangers on this road we are on
 C           G          C  C/B  F  C  G    C
We are not two; we are one

From: sallard> Date: Wed, Jan 8, 1997 12:18 PM My absolute favorite song- chord wise- is Strangers. I needed to find out a few of the words - and you had them! The chords are pretty accurate also - except after the C, then F, I think it's an E7, instead of E. And I think the chorus is Am, C, F,, C, G, C,, F, C, G. I forget what I read exactly, but I love playing that song very much... Scott Allard
