The Vigilante

Capo II
G7
I see the vigilante watchin' in the deep o' the night
C
G/b
Am7
I always find him where his heart is, he's fightin' the good fight
G/d
C/e
G/b
A/c#
He smells the scent of trouble and prepares to leave
G/d
C/e
G/b
C
He's got his eyes on the horizon, reachin' higher
A/c#
G/d
C/d
G7
He's got his eyes on the horizon, and his boots on his feet
G7
When I was stranded at the crossroads it was dismal and grey
C
G/b
Am7
And when I asked him for directions he showed me the good way
G/d
C/e
G/b
A/c#
And if the sky is swirlin' still his pace never swerves
G/d
C/e
G/b
C
Because his heart is always faithful, reachin' higher
A/c#
G/d
C/d
G7
Because his heart is always faithful to the captain he serves...
A7
G/b
A/c#
So when the storm of deception is roundin' the bend
G/d
C/e
C/d
G7
Y'know the vigilante's watchin', he won't let it in...
G7
Tho' I have seen him climbin' mountains with so heavy a load
C
G/b
Am7
He always lends a helpin' hand and he walks on the good road
G/d
C/e
G/b
A/c#
It often makes me wonder how he wins with such ease
A/c#
G/d
C/d
G7
But then he keeps his vigil constant, and he's aimin' to please
A7
G/b
A/c#
So when illusion's approachin' and danger is nigh
G/d
C/e
C/d
G7
Y'know the vigilante's watchin' and he won't let it by
G7
I've seen him fight the fiercest foe until it's forces divide
C
G/b
Am7
Cuz he's the fairest of them all and he chooses the good side
G/d
C/e
G/b
A/c#
So when the tempters tease and try to make him unsure
G/d
C/e
G/b
C
Y'know the fires of war are burnin', reachin' higher
A/c#
G/d
C/d
G7
Y'know the fires of war are burnin', but his weapons are pure
A7
G/b
A/c#
So when the clouds of confusion can creep into view
G/d
C/e
C/d
G7
Y'know the vigilante's watchin', and he won't let 'em through..
Repeat first verse.
G7
C6
