The Impossible Dream (The Quest)

Song Author Mitch Leigh Lyrics by: Joe Darion Performer: Elvis Presley Submitted by: gilsi
To [G]dream the impossible [Gmaj7]dream,      
to [C]fight the unbeatable [Cmaj7]foe,      
to b[Bm]ear with unbearable [C]sorrow,
to [Am]run where the brave dare not [D]go.  

To [G]right the unrightable[Gmaj7] wrong,      
to [C]love pure and chaste [Cmaj7]from afar,
to [Bm]try when your arms are too [C]weary,
to [Am]reach the unreachable [D]star.

This is my [G]quest, to follow that [Em]star,
no matter how [Bm]hopeless, no matter how [C]far.
To fight for the [Em]right, without question or [D#]pause,
to be willing to [G]pass into [Em]hell for a heavenly [F]cause.
And I [Am]know if I'll only be [F]true to the glorious [B]quest,
that my [C]heart lies peaceful and [Am]calm when I'm laid to my [Cm]rest. [D]    

And the [G]world will be better for [Gmaj7]this,      
that one [C]man scorned and covered with [Cmaj7]scars,      
still [Bm]strove with his last ounce of [C]courage,
to [Am]reach the unreachable [D]star.

This is my [G]quest, to follow that [Em]star,
no matter how [Bm]hopeless, no matter how [C]far.
To fight for the [Em]right, without question or [D#]pause,
to be [G/D]willing to [D#]pass into [Em]hell for a heavenly [F]cause.
And I [Am]know if I'll only be [F]true to the glorious [B]quest,
that my [C]heart lies peaceful and [Am]calm when I'm laid to my [Cm]rest. [D]    

And the [G]world will be better for [Gmaj7]this,      
that one [C]man scorned and covered with [Cmaj7]scars,      
still [Bm]strove with his last ounce of [C]courage,
to [Am]reach the unreachable [D]star. [E]    

And the [A]world will be better for [Amaj7]this,      
that one [D]man scorned and covered with [Dmaj7]scars,      
still [C#m]strove with his last ounce of c[D]ourage,
to [A/E]reach [E]the unreachable [A]star.

To dream the impossible dream,
to fight the unbeatable foe,
to bear with unbearable sorrow,
to run where the brave dare not go.

To right the unrightable wrong,
to love pure and chaste from afar,
to try when your arms are too weary,
to reach the unreachable star.

This is my quest, to follow that star,
no matter how hopeless, no matter how far.
To fight for the right, without question or pause,
to be willing to pass into hell for a heavenly cause.
And I know if I'll only be true to the glorious quest,
that my heart lies peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,
that one man scorned and covered with scars,
still strove with his last ounce of courage,
to reach the unreachable star.

This is my quest, to follow that star,
no matter how hopeless, no matter how far.
To fight for the right, without question or pause,
to be willing to pass into hell for a heavenly cause.
And I know if I'll only be true to the glorious quest,
that my heart lies peaceful and calm when I'm laid to my rest.

And the world will be better for this,
that one man scorned and covered with scars,
still strove with his last ounce of courage,
to reach the unreachable star.

And the world will be better for this,
that one man scorned and covered with scars,
still strove with his last ounce of courage,
to reach the unreachable star.
