instead of a regular C note)

   There's something I  must tell,  before   I   pass  a--long

(Repeat the same chords over the rest of the song)

I joined the brotherhood, my books were all to me
I scribed the words of God and much of history
Many a year was I perched out upon the sea
the waves would wash my tears, the wind my memory

I'd hear the ocean breathe, exhale upon the shore
I knew the tempest blood, its wrath I would endure
And so the years went by within my rocky cell
With only a mouse or bird, my friends I loved them well

And so it came to pass, I'd come here to Romani
And many a year it took, till I arrived here with thee
On dusty roads I walked, and over mountains high
Through rivers running deep, beneath the endless sky

Long bridge (Violin part)Disk Time 03:47 mn
It's very easy to pick the cello and pan flute notes played
over that bridge, so I didn't bother writing them.

(Disk Time : 04:24 mn)
Beneath these jasmine flowers, amidst these cypress trees
I give you now my booksm and all their mysteries
Now take the hourglass and turn it on its head
For when the sands are still, 'tis when you'll find me dead

O light the candle John, the daylight is almost gone
the birds have sung their last, the bells call all to mass.

Sorry, no outro ;-)
