Minstrel Of The Dawn

Flytjandi: Gordon Lightfoot
Capo I or III

[D]The minstrel of the [Dsus4]dawn is here
To [G]make you laugh and [A]bend your ear
[D]Up the steps you’ll [Dsus4]hear him climb
[G]All full of thoughts, all [A]full of rhymes
[G]Listen to the [C]pictures flow
A[G]cross the room in[C]to your mind they [A]go  
[D]Listen to the [G]strings
They [Bm]jangle and [D]dangle
While the [E]old guitar [A]rings

[D]The minstrel of the [Dsus4]dawn is he
[G]Not too wise but [A]oh so free
[D]He’ll talk of life out [Dsus4]on the street
[G]He’ll play it sad and [A]say it sweet
[G]Look into his [C]shining face
Of [G]loneliness you’ll [C]always find a [A]trace
[D]Just like me and [G]you  
He’s [Bm]trying’ to get [D]into things
More [E]happy than [A]blue

[Em]    [A]    [2x]    
[D]A minstrel of the [Dsus4]changing’ tide
[G]He’ll ask for nothing [A]but his pride
[D]Just sit him down u[Dsus4]pon that chair
[G]Go fetch some wine and [A]set it there
[G]Listen to the [C]pictures flow
A[G]cross the room in[C]to your mind they [A]go  
[D]Listen to the [G]strings
They [Bm]jangle and [D]dangle
While the [E]old guitar [A]rings

[D]A minstrel of the [Dsus4]dawn is near
[G]Just like a step ’n [A]fetch it here
[D]He’s like an old time [Dsus4]troubadour
[G]Just wanting life and [A]nothing more
[G]Look into his [A]shining eyes
[G]And if you see a ghost [C]don’t be sur[A]prised
[D]Like me and [G]you  
He’s [Bm]trying’ to get into [D]things
More [E]happy than [A]blue

[D]The minstrel boy will [Dsus4]understand
[G]He holds a promise [A]in his hand
[D]He talks of better [Dsus4]days ahead
[G]And by his words your [A]fortune’s read
[G]Listen to the [A]pictures flow
A[G]cross the room in[C]to your mind they [A]go  
[D]Listen to the [G]strings
They [Bm]jangle and [D]dangle
While the [E]old guitar [A]rings

[D]The minstrel of the [Dsus4]dawn is gone
[G]I hope he’ll call be[A]fore too long
[D]And if you meet him [Dsus4]you must be
[G]The victim of his [A]minstrelsy
He’ll [G]sing for you a [D]song
The [A]minstrel of the [D]daw  [A]n   [D]    

Capo I or III

The minstrel of the dawn is here
To make you laugh and bend your ear
Up the steps you’ll hear him climb
All full of thoughts, all full of rhymes
Listen to the pictures flow
Across the room into your mind they go
Listen to the strings
They jangle and dangle
While the old guitar rings

The minstrel of the dawn is he
Not too wise but oh so free
He’ll talk of life out on the street
He’ll play it sad and say it sweet
Look into his shining face
Of loneliness you’ll always find a trace
Just like me and you
He’s trying’ to get into things
More happy than blue


A minstrel of the changing’ tide
He’ll ask for nothing but his pride
Just sit him down upon that chair
Go fetch some wine and set it there
Listen to the pictures flow
Across the room into your mind they go
Listen to the strings
They jangle and dangle
While the old guitar rings

A minstrel of the dawn is near
Just like a step ’n fetch it here
He’s like an old time troubadour
Just wanting life and nothing more
Look into his shining eyes
And if you see a ghost don’t be surprised
Like me and you
He’s trying’ to get into things
More happy than blue

The minstrel boy will understand
He holds a promise in his hand
He talks of better days ahead
And by his words your fortune’s read
Listen to the pictures flow
Across the room into your mind they go
Listen to the strings
They jangle and dangle
While the old guitar rings

The minstrel of the dawn is gone
I hope he’ll call before too long
And if you meet him you must be
The victim of his minstrelsy
He’ll sing for you a song
The minstrel of the dawn
