The Traveller
Words & Music by Chris de Burgh

Bm                                                            F#m
In from the coast, riding like the wind and racing the moon.
Bm                                                                       F#m
Shadows on the road, dancing and weaving like a crazy fool.
    Bm                                                             F#m
A horseman is coming, death in his heart for a rendezvous.
                 A              A7                     Bm
And where the traveller goes, nobody knows.
          A                                Bm
Where the traveller goes, nobody knows.

A candle in the night, fear on every face when he goes inside.
(Maybe he's on the run)
Get back from the bar, a stranger in town is a dangerous sight
(maybe he's got a gun)
Bring a bottle of whiskey landlord, I want to talk for a while
And where the traveller goes, a cold wind blows.
Where the traveller goes, a cold wind blows.

      Bm                                 A
    There is something in his eyes, something in his hands,
        G                               Bm
    you can almost smell his revenge.
                 A
    And whoever he is after, it will be a disaster,
      G                         F#                              Bm
    This man is gonna take him to the very end.

Well, the landlord he trembled staring at a face he'd seen somewhere before.
(you laid him in the ground)
Suddenly remembered a killing, yes, a murder many years before.
(t'was you that shot him down)
He said to a boy, saddle me the black, I'll meet you down below,
with this man I must talk, with this traveller I go,
with this man I must talk, yes with him I must go.

       Bm                                 A
    There is something in his eyes, something in his hands,
        G                               Bm
    you can almost smell his revenge.
                 A
    And whoever he is after, it will be a disaster,
      G                         F#                              Gmaj7
    This man is gonna take him to the very end
                           G         A           Bm - G - A - Bm - G - A
    And they were never seen again.
