The singer sang his song    (video)    (clip)

 

    G ~ ~

 

    G                        C                         D

1.     He'd sing his song most every night,

      G                         C                      D

    wishing she was there behind the light.

G                      C                           D

    The people danced and sang along,

                 G                              C                     D      - D7

    on the cardboard stage, he never sang it wrong.

 

              G                        D

And the piper played the tune,

                G            C             D

and the drummer wore his spurs,

              G                  B7      Em                 D     - D7

but the song that the singer sang was for her.

 

  G                               C                    D

2.   Now the singer's song is never heard,

                  G                        C                       D         - D7

    and the visions he once saw have disappeared.

G                             C                     D      - D7

    Now they never dance or sing along,

                       G                              C                     D      - D7

    but on the cardboard stage, he never sang it wrong.

 

              G                        D

And the piper played the tune,

                G            C             D

and the drummer wore his spurs,

              G                  B7      Em                 D     - D7

but the song that the singer sang was for her.
