INTRO

.       Am                       F
The last that ever she saw him
G                                   C               G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
.      Am                                    F
He passed on worried and warning
G                                   C              G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow.
C                                   G
Lost in a riddle last Saturday night
Am      F              G
Far away on the other side.
.                C                                            G
He was caught in the middle of a desperate fight
.               Am                 F                   G
And she couldn’t find how to push through

 




.       Am                                     F
The trees that whisper in the evening
G                                   C               G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
.           Am                            F
Sing a song of sorrow and grieving
G                                   C                G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
C                                G
All she saw was a silhouette of a gun
Am     F                 G
Far away on the other side.
.              C                                 G
He was shot six times by a man on the run
.              Am                 F                    G
And she couldn’t find how to push through

 

G
I stay I pray
.          C          F          G
I see you in heaven far away
G
I stay I pray
.          C         F             G
I see you in heaven one day

 

Am                        F
Four am in the morning
G                                   C                G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
.   Am                            F
I watched your vision forming
G                                   C               G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
C                                 G
Star was light in a silvery night
Am     F               G
Far away on the other side
.                 C                         G
Will you come to talk to me this night
.              Am                F                    G
But she couldn’t find how to push through

[Bridge]

G
I stay I pray
.          C          F          G
I see you in heaven far away
G
I stay I pray
.          C         F             G
I see you in heaven one day

C                                               G                               Am      F      G
Caught in the middle of a hundred and five
C                                                 G
The night was heavy but the air was alive
.        Am               F                     G                       Am      F      G
She couldn’t find how to push through
.                                   C                G                       Am     F     G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
.                                   C                G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Am   F               G
far away on the other side
