F             C      Bb            F
Travelling man, such secrets to be told
F        C  Bb                      F
Alien man, running from the days of old
F             C        Bb              F
Out of his world, with nothing left to lose
F            C  Bb                    F
Travelling man, coming down to rescue you


Bb                        Dm
You're hard to find, Time Lord
Bb                    Dm      C
Too busy saving everything to stop


    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will save the day
    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will keep you safe
Bb                    C                    
Even if he has to die five hundred and seven times
    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will save the day


F             C      Bb              F
Waiting so long, for something to retrieve
F            C Bb                F
Gallifrey man, of his tragic history
F               C      Bb             F
Such a sharp mind, but broken are his hearts
F              C Bb                        
Engines in gear, time to put things in the past


Bb                       Dm
There comes a time, Time Lord
Bb                  Dm           C
When every boy must learn how to dance


    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will save the day
    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will keep you safe
Bb                    C                    
Even if he has to die five hundred and seven times
    F                   C        Bb      C
The travelling man will save the day


Bb                   F
Everybody knows that everybody dies
    Dm                   Am
But nobody knows it like him
Bb                           F
I think all the lights would drain out of the skies
   Dm                 C
If he ever gave up trying


-no chords-
Just this once... everybody lives!


    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will save the day
    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will keep you safe
Bb                    C                    
Even if he has to die five hundred and seven times
    F                   C        Bb
The travelling man will save the day
