Intro: A D A D A D E

A
I found a map and it broke my heart
 
I didn't know that I'd ever go this far 
                                          E
With a compass point driving ink into my arm 


A
The father, son and the holy ghost 

Don't talk too much, never been that close 
                                             E
Pouring spirits while I follow the Northern star 


Dadd9                 A
And as the birds fly south 
Gbm7                      A
I've been missing a small house 
Dadd9              A                 E
That holds all my words in precious store 
            Dadd9          A       Gbm7     A   
I found your message at the bottom of a bottle 
A          Gbm7          Dadd9       E          A
Come back to where the streets are paved with stone 


Dadd9       A
I believe in you
Gbm7          A 
You believe in me
Dadd9           A              E 
You're the lighthouse in the storm 
Dadd9              A
I've believe it's true 
Gbm7           A  
I can follow you 
A      Gbm7         Dadd9        E          A
Back to where the streets are paved with stone 


A
I'd swap the scent of open ocean 

There for the factory steel and the engineers 
                                      E
Well I'm coming back to something beautiful 


A
All the noise and all the lights 

Are all the things I'd sacrifice 
                                      E
I'd trade it for the way you make me feel 


Dadd9                 A
And as the days they pass
Gbm7                        A 
Falling through the hour glass 
            Dadd9         A           E
Used to be beneath my feet along the shore 
Dadd9           A                 Gbm7           A
I find your message lying at the bottom of a bottle 
A            Gbm7          Dadd9     E           A
Come back to where the streets are paved with stone 


Dadd9       A
I believe in you
Gbm7          A 
You believe in me
Dadd9           A              E 
You're the lighthouse in the storm 
Dadd9              A
I've believe it's true 
Gbm7           A  
I can follow you 
A      Gbm7         Dadd9        E          A
Back to where the streets are paved with stone 


Dadd9
Once around the world
A 
Once around the world
Gbm7 
Once around the world
E  
Back to you 


Dadd9
Once around the world
A 
Once around the world
Gbm7 
Once around the world
E  
Back to you 


Dadd9       A
I believe in you
Gbm7          A 
You believe in me
Dadd9           A              E 
You're the lighthouse in the storm 
Dadd9              A
I've believe it's true 
Gbm7           A  
I can follow you 
A      Gbm7         Dadd9        E          A
Back to where the streets are paved with stone


A      Gbm7         Dadd9        E          A
Back to where the streets are paved with stone 


Dadd9            A
Once around the world, 
Gbm7              E
Once around the world
