I picked this one out on piano. It's kind of tough to do the descending

baseline with a guitar, but it sounds really cool.

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6 C E7sus E7

 

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

Solemn faced the village settles down, undetected by the stones

A A#dim

And the hangman plays the mandolin before he goes to

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

Sleep, and the last thing on his mind

A A#dim

is the wild-eyed boy imprisoned 'neath the

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

covered wooden shaft, folds the rope into it's bag.

A A#dim

Blows his pipe of smolders, blankets

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

smoke into the room, and the day will end for some.

C G F E7sus E7

As the night begins for one.

 

(Chords the same until they pick up again)

Staring through the message in his eyes lies a solitary son

from the mountain called the freecloud where the

eagle dare not fly, and the patience in his sigh

gives no indication for the

townsmen to decide, so the village dreadful groans

Pronouncing gross diversion as the

label for the dog. Ooo it's the madness in his eyes

C G

As he breaks the night to cry

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

Its really me, really you and really me

A A#dim

It's so hard for us to really

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

be, Really you, really me,

A A#dim

You'll lose me though I'm always really

 

D D/C# D/C D/B C C C C

free.

 

C C7

And the mountain moved it's eyes to the world and realized

Bb Ab C E7sus E7

Where the snow had saved a place for the wild-eyed boy from free cloud

(Same chords)

And the village dreadful cried as the moat began to rise

For the smile stayed on the face of the wild-eyed boy from freecloud.

G C

And the women once proud clutched the heart of the crowd

G C

as the boulders smashed down from the mountains hand.

Am C

And the magic in the stare of the wild-eyed boy said

Am C E7sus E7

"Stop Free Cloud, they won't think to cut me down, no, no, no!"

F C F C

But the cottages fell like a playing card hell

Bb F C

and the tears on the face of the wise boy

F C F C

came trembling down to the rumbling ground

Bb F C

and the missionary mystic of peace/love

D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6

Stumbled back to cry among the clouds

A A#sus D D/C# C

Kicking back the pebbles from the Free Cloud mountain's track.
