Verse 1
GG chord                                     CC chord
If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
CC chord                                        GG chord
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
GG chord                                        CC chord     
Would you hear my voice come through the music
CC chord         GG chord       DD chord    CC chord               GG chord  
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

Verse 2
GG chord                                     CC chord
It's a hand-me-down, the thoughts are broken
CC chord                             GG chord 
Perhaps they're better left unsung
GG chord                          CC chord
I don't know, don't really care
GG chord            DD chord     CC chord           GG chord
Let there be songs to fill the air

AmAm chord              DD chord
Ripple in still water
           GG chord            CC chord
When there is no pebble tossed
    AA chord       DD chord
Nor wind to blow 

Verse 3
               GG chord                   CC chord
Reach out your hand if your cup be empty
CC chord                                GG chord
If your cup is full may it be again
GG chord                          CC chord
Let it be known there is a fountain
GG chord            DD chord    CC chord               GG chord
That was not made by the hands of men 

Verse 4
GG chord                          CC chord
There is a road, no simple highway
CC chord                                GG chord
Between the dawn and the dark of night
GG chord                        CC chord
And if you go no one may follow
GG chord            DD chord   CC chord          GG chord
That path is for your steps alone


Verse 5
        GG chord                   CC chord
You who choose to lead must follow
CC chord                          GG chord
But if you fall you fall alone
GG chord                                 CC chord
If you should stand then who's to guide you?
GG chord             DD chord   CC chord                GG chord
If I knew the way I would take you home

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
