Last Words Of The Great Explorer

Trans by:  Mr. C5 - Dave Allen

em                                d
Travel round the world, cover every inch
em                      d
It just cannot be done
em                                      d
You meet a lot of girls who donīt mean anything
em                      d
So only look for one

                            am
Thatīs the famous last words of the great
 em
explorer
am                                          em
Oher men would not have got involved
am
Other men would just have walked by
       em
and ignored her
                   d
But you just had to look
em
Had to touch
d          am            em    d
Had to lose control
em                                        d
You never trust them but still find yourself pulled in
em                              d
Forget the reason you set out
em                                     d
Go through the motions but forget the meaning
em                                      d
Your fleshy heart filled with doubt

(chorus)
em                                d
I was still in the foothills when I fell asleep
am
But I dreamed that I climbed all night
              d
Until the blood ran from my feet
em                                              d
And I felt like a mountaineer as he reaches the brow
am
I dreamed I was waking up
c                                 d
Whatīs the use of that now?
em                                   d
Tomorrow - we will learn how to really love
em                                        d
Together - weīll go to distant lands
em                                                 d
Tomorrow - weīll see ourselves as others must see us
em                                      d
Together - we will be really friends again
 
chords as above

Thatīs the famous last words of the great explorer

Other men would not have got involved

Other men would just have walked by and ignored her

But you just had to look

Had to touch
d              am           em
Now you know too much
