[Intro]
C  G  Am  F  G


[Chorus]
    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.


[Verse]
C                    G
Lost in a river 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


[Chorus]
    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


[Verse]
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


[Interlude]
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 far away


[Chorus]
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


[Verse]
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


[Interlude]
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


[Solo]
Am  F  G  C  G
Am  F  G  C  G  C  G
Am   F                G
Far away on the other side.
C  G  Am  F  G
Am  F  G  C  G
Am  F  G  C  G
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                  C  G
Carried away by a moonlight shadow
Am   F                G
      Far away on the other side.
