*Intro
F#m11      |Dmaj9|
F#m11  |Dmaj9|
A   |A   |A    |A-G  |


A                              A
Once upon a time I stalked the streets on raining evenings
        Dmaj9                          |A|A-G|
When the distant sea blended with the sky
A                               Dmaj9
Past Coliseum's filled with brass on pavements carved from toasted glass
                                 A
I carried in my heart a word or two

*Chorus
F#m11
You dashing horseman all gone away
Dmaj9
Left you a stable bill to pay
F#m11                                  Dmaj9
And now the golden calf has turned to clay

F#m11
All my feelings dressed in gloves
Dmaj9
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#m11                                  Dmaj9
White and open-necked you would still play


A                             A
I'd resort to sleepwalking to catch the mood that fills the sails
    Dmaj9                                 |A|A-G|
With harvest nets and tides don't ever bring
A                                  Dmaj9
But every night was Halloween, and every friend fell in between
                                   A
And how capricious nature ruled my mind


*Chorus
F#m11)
You dashing horseman all gone away
Dmaj9
Left you a stable bill to pay
F#m11                                  Dmaj9
And now the golden calf has turned to clay

F#m11
All my feelings dressed in gloves
Dmaj9
Couldn't touch your windswept harbour love
F#m11                                  Dmaj9
White and open-necked you would still play

           I sound so different these days,
F#m11                 Dmaj9
I barely can believe I'm here
F#m11                     Dmaj9
If I didn't know better, I would swear I was someone else
F#m11                  Dmaj9
Lord I can't believe, I don't believe I'm me
F#m11       Dmaj9         
But who on earth could I be ?
