D Em While riding on a train goin' west G A I feel asleep for take my a rest D G D I dreamed a dream that made me sad A G D Concerning myself and the first few friend that I had. Em With half-damp eyes I stared to the room G A Where my friends and I spent many an afternoon D G D Where we together weathered many a storm A G D Laughin' and singing 'till the early hours of the morn'. Em By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung G A Our words were told, our songs were sung D G D Where we longed for nothin' and were quite satisfied A G D Talking and a-joking about the world outside. Em With haunted hearts through the heat and cold G A We never thought we could ever get old A G D We thought we could sit forever in fun A G D But our chances really was a million to one. Em As easy it was to tell black from white G A It was all that easy to tell wrong from right D G D And our choices they were few and the thought never hit A D D That the one road we travelled would ever shatter and split. Em How many a year has passed and gone G A Many a gamble has been lost and won D G D And many a road taken by many a first friend A G D And each one I've never seen again. Em I wish, I wish, I wish in vain G A That we could sit simply in that room again D G D Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat A G D I'd give it all gladly if our lives could be like that.
