Don't Pay The Ferryman

Song Author Chris DeBurgh Lyrics by: Chris DeBurgh Performer: Chris DeBurgh Submitted by: Anonymous
I was [G]late at night on the [Em]open road
[G]Speeding like a man on the [C]run  
A [C]lifetime [G]spent pre[C]paring[G] for the [D]journey
He is [G]closer now, as the [Em]search is on
[G]Reading from a map in the [C]mind
Yes, [C]there's that [G]rugged [C]hill
and there's a [G]boat on the [D]river.
And when the [Em]rain came down[Em],   [D]    
He heard a wi[Em]ld dog howl.[Dsus4]    [D]    
There were [C]voices in the [G]night. (don't do it)
[C]Voices out of [G]sight. (don't do it)
[C]Too many men have failed be[B]fore;
whatever you do,

[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
[Em]Don't [D]even [Em]fix a [C]price[D]    
[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
Until he [C]gets you to the [D]other [Em]side   

[Em]    [D]    [Em]    [Em]    [D]    [Em]    
In the [G]rolling mist as he [Em]gets on board
[G]Now there'll be no turning back[C]    
Be[C]ware that [G]hooded [C]old man[G] at the [D]rudder
And the [G]lightning flashed and the [Em]thunder rolled
And [G]people calling out his name[C]    
And [C]dancing [G]bones that [C]jabbered
and a-[G]moaned on the [D]water.
And then the [Em]ferryman said[Em]    [D]    
"there is [Em]trouble ahead[Dsus4]    [D]    
So [C]you must pay me [G]now" (don't do it)
"[C]You must pay me [G]now" (don't do it)
[C]And still that voice came from [B]beyond:
whatever you do,

[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
[Em]Don't [D]even [Em]fix a [C]price[D]    
[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
Until he [C]gets you to the [D]other [Em]side   

[Em]    [D]    [Em]    [Em]    [D]    [Em]    
[B] Yea....

[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
[Em]Don't [D]even [Em]fix a [C]price[D]    
[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
Until he [C]gets you to the [D]other [Em]side   

[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
[Em]Don't [D]even [Em]fix a [C]price[D]    
[Em]Don't [D]pay the [Em]ferryman
Until he [C]gets you to the [D]other [Em]side   
[Em]Don't [D]pay... [D]The [Em]Fer   [Em]ry-   [Em]man!   

I was late at night on the open road
Speeding like a man on the run
A lifetime spent preparing for the journey
He is closer now, as the search is on
Reading from a map in the mind
Yes, there's that rugged hill
and there's a boat on the river.
And when the rain came down,
He heard a wild dog howl.
There were voices in the night. (don't do it)
Voices out of sight. (don't do it)
Too many men have failed before;
whatever you do,

Don't pay the ferryman
Don't even fix a price
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side


In the rolling mist as he gets on board
Now there'll be no turning back
Beware that hooded old man at the rudder
And the lightning flashed and the thunder rolled
And people calling out his name
And dancing bones that jabbered
and a-moaned on the water.
And then the ferryman said
"there is trouble ahead
So you must pay me now" (don't do it)
"You must pay me now" (don't do it)
And still that voice came from beyond:
whatever you do,

Don't pay the ferryman
Don't even fix a price
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side


Yea....

Don't pay the ferryman
Don't even fix a price
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side

Don't pay the ferryman
Don't even fix a price
Don't pay the ferryman
Until he gets you to the other side
Don't pay... The Ferry-man!
