Barclay James Harvest "The World Goes On" from album 'Octoberon' 1976 


[Verse 1]
C       D              Em         Bm
See the gambler make a stand
C       B               Em        G
Holds a lifetime in his hand
C       G      Am              Em
Win the game       or lose control
        C     C/B  Am    C
But the world goes on forever

 
[Verse 2]
C        D           Em         Bm
Life's a circle, I recall
C        B              Em        G
Shadows played upon the wall
C           G       Am              Em
You pay the piper       to call the tune
        C    C/B  Am    C
And the song goes on forever


[Chorus 1]
G        D                  Em          Bm
And when all the words have gone
C           B                Em         G
There's the thought to carry on
C    D      G         Em
Just like a bird that sings
G              C                    G
Leave it all behind and spread your wings
G                      C                  G
You can leave it all behind - spread your wings


[Bridge 1]
        G      C G
Lay me down
        C         D         Em       Bm
Saw the road move on before me
C          B       Em  D C                 G
Times when I was tired        and lost my way
G          D            Em        C         Em        Bm
Looking at life and strangely for the first time
              D            C
Thinking that I could stay here
        C     C/B   Am    C
But the world moves on forever


[Chorus 2]
G        D                  Em        Bm
And when all the words have gone
C           B                Em       G
There's the thought to carry on
C    D      G         Em
Just like a bird that sings
G              C                    G
Leave it all behind and spread your wings
G                      C                  G
You can leave it all behind - spread your wings

[Bridge 2]
G          D            Em         C         Em         Bm
Looking at life and strangely for the first time
Bm            D            C
Thinking that I could stay here
        C     C/B   Am    C
But the world moves on forever


[Chorus 3]
G        D                 Em          Bm
And when all the words have gone
C           B                Em         G
There's the thought to carry on
C    D      G         Em
Just like a bird that sings
G              C                    G
Leave it all behind and spread your wings
G                      C                  G
You can leave it all behind - spread your wings
