The Old Ways

	  		Em		  Bm		       C		Am 
  The thundering waves are calling me home (me home) to you 
Em	       Bm		  C		   Am 
  The pounding sea is calling me home (me home) to you 

Em			Bm 
  On a dark new year's night 
			C 
  On the west coast of Clare 
		Am 
  I heard your voice singing 
Em			Bm 
  Your eyes danced the song 
			 C 
  Your hands played the tune 
		   Am 
  T'was a vision before me. 

Em		      Bm	 		  C 
  We left the music behind and the dance carried on 
	       Am 
  As we stole away to the seashore 
Em		Bm		  	    C 
  We smelt the brine, felt the wind in our hair 
			D (riff1) 
  And with sadness you paused. 

	      Em		     Bm 
  Suddenly I knew that you'd have to go 
		     C			    Am 
  My world was not yours, your eyes told me so 
	      Em			    Bm 
  Yet it was there I felt the crossroads of time 
		  C	D 
  And I wondered why. 

Em		  Bm		       C 
  As we cast our gaze on the tumbling sea 
	     Am 
  A vision came o'er me 
Em		 Bm		    C 
  Of thundering hooves and beating wings 
	      D (riff1) 
  In clouds above. 

		   Em			   Bm 
  As you turned to go I heard you call my name, 
			     C				Am 
  You were like a bird in a cage spreading its wings to fly 
		     Em			    Bm 
  "The old ways are lost," you sang as you flew 
	   	  C	D 
  And I wondered why.
