Chords and lyrics for Tapestry by Carole King

 
My  
E 
life has been a  
B7 
tapestry 
 
of
E 
rich and royal
B7 
hue,
 
an  
E 
everlasting 
 
 
B7 
vision of the
E 
everchanging
B7 
view,
 
a  
F#m7 
wondrous 
 
wov
B 
en magic  
A 
in bits of blue a
B 
nd 
 
gold,
 
a  
Amaj7 
tapestry
G#m7 
to feel and  
F#m 
see, 
 
impos
B7 
sible to hold.
 
Emaj7 
Once amid  
B9 
the soft si
Emaj7 
lver 
 
sadnes
B9 
s in the sky
 
there  
E 
came a man of  
B9 
fortune, 
 
a
E 
drifter 
 
passing
B7 
by
 
he  
F#m7 
wore a torn a
B 
nd tattered cloth
A 
around his leather
B 
ed 
 
hide
 
and a  
Amaj7 
coat of m
G#m7 
any colors,  
F#m 
yellow-green 
 
o
B7 
 
either
F#m7 
s
B7 
ide.
 
He  
G 
moved with some un
D7sus 
cer
D7 
tainty
Gmaj7 
, as if h
D7 
e didn’t know
G 
just what he was  
D7sus 
th
D7 
ere 
 
for
Gmaj7 
, or where he  
D7 
ought to go
B 
once he reached for  
Gb7 
something golden hanging from  
B 
 
tree
 
and his  
Emaj7 
hand came down -
Gb 
empty.
 
E 
Soon within my  
B7 
tapestry 
 
a
E 
long the rutted
B7 
road
 
he  
E 
sat down on a  
B7 
river rock and
E 
turned into a
B7 
toad,
 
it  
F#m7 
seemed that he h
B 
ad fallen in
A 
to someone’s wick
B 
ed 
 
spell,
 
and I  
Amaj7 
wept to see  
G#m7 
him suffer, th
F#m 
ough I didn’t  
B7 
know him well.
 
F 
As I watched in  
C7 
sorrow, 
 
there
F 
suddenly 
 
a
C7 
ppeared
 
a  
F 
figure gray and  
C7 
ghostly 
 
b
F 
eneath a flowing
C7 
beard
 
in times of deepest  
C 
darkness, I’ve  
Bb 
seen him dressed in
C 
black
 
now my  
Bbmaj7 
tapestry’
Am7 
 
unravelling
Gm 
; he’s come to  
C7 
take me back,
 
F 
 
C7
