INTRO: F C7 (x2)

   F               C7          F              C7
My life has been a tapestry of rich and royal hue.
   F           C7            F             C7
An everlasting vision of the ever changing view.
  Gm             C7        Bb               C7
A wondrous woven magic, in bits of blue and gold..
  Bb          Am              Gm          C7
a tapestry to feel and see, impossible to hold.

F              C7          F              C7
Once, amid the soft silver sadness in the sky..
      F             C7         F                C7
there came a man of fortune, a drifter, passing by.
   Gm              C7              Bb
He wore a torn and tattered cloth around his leathered 
C7          Bb           Am             Gm
hide..and a coat of many colors, yellow-green on 
       C7   Gm  C7
either side.

   Ab                Eb7           Ab           Eb7
He moved with some uncertainty, as if he didn't know,
     Ab                Eb7     Ab                Eb7
just what he was there for, or where he ought to go.
C                    G                 Am             C
Once, he reached for something golden, hanging from a tree..
        F                    G
and his hand came down, emp..ty.

F               C7         F               C7
Soon, within my tapestry, along the rutted road..
   F             C7             F             C7
he sat down on a river rock and turned into a toad.
   Gm                 C7          Bb               C7
It seemed that he had fallen into someone's wicked spell..
      Bb              Am               Gm              C7
and I wept to see him suffer, though I didn't know him well.

Gb              Db7           Gb         Db7
As I watched in sorrow, there suddenly appeared..
  Gb              Db7        Gb              Db7
a figure gray and ghostly, beneath a flowing beard.
   Abm              Db             B                   Db
In times of deepest darkness, I've seen him dressed in black..
        B            Bbm            Abm             Db
now, my tapestry's unraveling, he's come to take me back.

     Abm             Db
He's come to take me back...Gb Db7 (x3) Gb 

A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
