Roll Back The Clouds Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. Christy Hennessy. Christy was the gentleman of the Irish music scene, but alas he's no longer with us. ''In the night of death, hope sees a star, and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing'' - Guitar Work By David.

I've been sitting (G)here so long, for you to hear my (C)song,
And all you (D)want to know, have I been on the (G)radio,
Who's the biggest (G)star I've seen, what is my favourite (C)scene,
And if I (D)get the job would I sing on (G)Mars.
Yes Sir I would (G)sing on Mars, I'd play upon a (C)star,
I'd sing (D)songs of the Sun and when my (G)job was done,
I would say I (G)love you so, I'd like to play one (C)more,
Just for (D)all young lovers, for the (G)road.

Chorus:

(C)Tell me Son, yeah (G)just how far,
(C)I need to go to (D)be a star.


I have known my (G)highs and lows, I've worked in every (C)show,
I've played in (D)every town, brought some (G)houses down,
The critics never (D)noticed me, I'm not a star you (C)see,
And yet I (D)give my heart to every (G)part.
I would stand for (G)hours and hours, I'd walk through some (C)showers,
With my (D)dancing shoes and my (G)dreams and views,
I walk upon an (G)empty stage with one light in my (C)face,
To be (D)told don't phone us, but we'll phone (G)you.

Chorus:

(C)Tell me Son, yeah (G)just how far,
(C)I need to go to (D)be a star.


Every day the (G)same old scene, the same old happen(C)ings,
A hundred (D)miles of shows and no (G)place to go,
And when your luck has (G)all run out, you're asked to take a (C)bow,
You've just (D)stolen the show now you're on your (G)own.

Chorus:

(C)Yes Sir I would (G)sing on Mars,
(C)My dream scene is (D)me a star,
Is (D)me a star,
I am a (G)star.
