Song for a Friend

 

Written by John Stewart

 

 

Capo 4th

 

In many places chords are played note by note rather than strummed.

 

Use (E7 short) and (A7 short)

 

(Em7) (A7) (Em7) (A7)

 

 

(Em7) When you sit and (A7)wonder

Why (G)things have gone so (A7)wrong,

And you (Em7)wish someone would (D)tell us

(F#m)where our friend has (Em7)gone, (A7)

 

(D)Look then to the (E7)hills

When there's (G)courage in the (F#m)wind,

And (Em7)in the face of (D)freedom

And (F#m)those who look to (Em7)Him. (A7)

 

And (D)search within the (E7)heart

Of ev'ry (G)young man with a (F#m)song,

(G)Then I think we'll (D)know

(F#m)where our friend has (Em7)gone. (A7)

(G) (A7) (G)

 

(Em7)Summer takes the (A7)winter

As the (G)good years take the (A7)pain,

There'll be (Em7)laughter in the (D)land again

But (F#m)hearts won't be the (Em7)same. (A7)

 

And (D)I know I'll (E7)remember

When a (G)chill wind takes the (F#m)sky,

And (Em7)speak of the years he (D)gave us hope, (hold)

For (F#m)they will never (Em7)die. (A7)

 

And (D)as we gaze at (E7)brave young men

When (G)yesterdays grow (F#m)long,

(G)Then I think we'll (D)know

(F#m)where our friend has (Em7)gone. (A7)

 

(G) (A7) (G)

 

(Em7)When you sit and (A7)wonder

Why (G)things have gone so (A7)wrong,

It's (Em7)then that we'll (D)remember

(F#m)where our friend has (Em)gone. (A7)

(G) (A7) (Em7) (D)
