Lyrics and Chords

[Fiddler on the Roof]

How can I hope to make you understand
Why I do what I do
Why I must travel to a distant land
Far from the home I love

/ Am - C - / F Bb E7 - / Am - C - / F6 E7 A - /

Once I was happily content to be
As I was, where I was
Close to the people who are close to me
Here in the home I love

/ Amaj7 - C#m7 - / Bm7 - E7 - / 1st / Bm7 E7 A - /

Who could see that a man would come
Who would change the shape of my dreams
Helpless, now, I stand with him
Watching older dreams grow dim

/ Bm7 E7 Amaj7 A6 / Bm7 - C#m7 - / Dmaj7 C#m7 Bm7 Amaj7 / Bm7 C#m7 Dmaj7 E7 / 

Oh, what a melancholy choice this is
Wanting home, wanting him
Closing my heart to every hope but his
Leaving the home I love

/ Am - C - / F Bb E7 - / Am - C - / Dm6 E7 A - /

There where my heart has settled long ago
I must go, I must go
Who could imagine I'd be wand'ring so
Far from the home I love
Yet, there with my love, I'm home

/ Amaj7 - C#m7 - / Bm7 - E7 - / Am - C - / F6 E7 - C7 / Dm6 E Am - /
