Hello all Thin Lizzy fans!

The song itself is quite easy. The guitarist plays this fingerpicking pattern, but I 
bothered to tab it,
because it sounds better if you play the chords (if you only got one guitar). Thin Lizzy 
the whole thing
with a big orchestra (or so it seems) so they have a full sound, and if you dont play 
chords, the sound will be
uninteresting and flat. The 2 riffs I have set up is optional. It sounds just a bit cool 
you do them. Riff1 is
really played with 1 guitar and 1 bass, and at one place it is played by some sort of 
(or something like that).
Riff2 is a riff for the bass guitar, but I like it, so I put it in there.


    E     B      D    A     Am    E

Riff1:                       Riff2:


Intro x3

E**                             B
  These words I wrote, play and sing to you
D                                      A**
  Do not convey the love I brought and bring to you
Am                        E*
  For this is a song for while I'm away
   A*                      E            (Riff1)
To say all the things I'd love to say

            A5       G#5   F#5         E5         (Riff2)
You are my life, my everything, you're all I have
           C#5                  B5         A5
You are my hopes, my dreams, my world come true
F#5   E5          (Riff2)
You're all I have
               F#5       G#5     (F#5)   E5  (Riff2)
Please heed me now these words I have to say

Intro x3

Now I'm headed for the border
You see this song it ends right at the start
I swore when I was younger
No one would win my heart

Chorus x2

Intro x3

And far away hills look greener still
But soon they'll all slip away
It's then I'll be returning
And I'll be coming home to stay

Fade out while playing chorus.
