G                 D/F#           G    G/A  G/B  C              
While travelling northwards on a back country lane
               Em            Am      Em
I came on the village where first I grew
G               D/F#         G   G/A  G/B C
And stopped to climb up the hill once again
                       Em            Am         Em
Looking down from the tracks to the grey slate roofs
                        D           Em              D
I watched the village moving as the day went slowly by
         G    D   C   G       C         Em      Am
In the fields we lay here my very first love and I
       G          D      A
Under timeless arcadian skies
       G          D       C    Em  Am  intro
Under timeless arcadian skies

The old canal lies sleeping under the sky
The barges are gone to a lost decade
On overgrown banks here lovers' footsteps went by
Long before ever the roads were made
And in our turn we passed here and carved our names on trees
As the days washed by like waves of an endless sea
Under timeless arcadian skies
Under timeless arcadian skies
Bb6  A7                 Dm
Time runs through your fingers
E          Am         E            Am
You never hold it at all till itís gone
Bb6   A7              Dm    E
Some fragments just linger with you
      Am          E             Am   G
Like snow in the spring hanging on

I left the village behind in the night
To fade like a sail in the darkening seas
The shifts and changes in the patterns of life
Will weather it more than the centuries
And in another village in a far off foreign land
The new day breaks out opening up its hand
And the sun has the moon in his eyes
As he wanders the timeless skies
