By My Side

Words & Music:

Stephen Schwarz (Godspell)

Dm                 C  C/B           Am

Where are you going?  Where are you going?

Dm                    C    C/B   Am

Will you take me with you?

Am     Dm                     C    C/B    Am

For my hand is cold and needs warmth.


Where are you going?

C                    D                       C

Far beyond where the horizon lies, where the horizon lies.

C                       D

And the land sinks into mellow blueness.

C                        D

Oh, please, take me with you.

C               D                    C                  D

Let me skip the road with you, I can dare myself, I can dare myself.

C                 D              C

I'll put a pebble in my shoe and watch me walk.


I can walk and walk.

Dm                       C    C/B    Am

I shall call the pebble "Dare".

Dm                          C   C/B  Am              Dm

We will talk together about walking... Dare shall be carried.

Dm                        C  C/B  Am     Dm

And when we both have had enough, I will take him from my shoe

          C    C/B  Am

Singing, "Meet your new road..."

          Dm                      C  C/B  Am

Then I'll take your hand, finally glad----- that I am here

        Dm             C    C/B    Am

By your side... (by my side...)

        Dm             C    C/B    Am

By your side... (by my side...)

        Dm                         C  C/B  Am

By your side... (that you are here by my side...)
