Home From The Forest
Written and recorded by Gordon Lightfoot

C F C
Oh the neon lights were flashin' and the icy wind did blow
Am G7 F C
The water seeped into his shoes and the drizzle turned to snow
F C Am E7
His eyes were red his hopes were dead and the wine was runnin' low
F G7 C
And the old man came home from the forest

F C
His tears fell on the sidewalk as he stumbled in the street
Am G7 F C
A dozen faces stopped to stare but no one stopped to speak
F C Am E7
For his castle was a hallway and the bottle was his friend
F G7 C
And the old man stumbled in from the forest

F C
Up a dark and dingy staircase the old man made his way
Am G7 F C
His ragged coat around him as upon his cot he lay
F C Am E7
And he wondered how it happened that he ended up this way
F G7 C
Getting lost like a fool in the forest

F C
And as he lay there sleeping a vision did appear
Am F C
Upon his mantle shining a face of one so dear
F C Am E7
Who had loved him in the springtime of a long-forgotten year
F G7 C
When the wildflowers did bloom in the forest

F C
She touched his grizzled fingers and she called him by his name
Am G7 F C
And then he heard the joyful sound of children at their games
F C Am E7
In an old house on a hillside in some forgotten town
F G7 C
Where the river runs down from the forest

F C
With a mighty roar the big jets soar above the canyon streets
Am G7 F C
And the con men con but life goes on for the city never sleeps
F C Am E7
And to an old forgotten soldier the dawn will come no more
F G7 C
For the old man has come home from the forest
