//VERSE 1:
 
  D5/A             A5                 A5/G  [THEME]
A man can lose his past, in a country like    this 
C#sus2/G#
Wandering aimless 
G           Bsus2/F#     [THEME]
Parched and nameless 
  D5/A               A5                A5/G  [THEME]
A man could lose his way, in a country like this 
C#sus2/G#
Canyons and cactus 
G           Bsus2/F#     [THEME]
Endless and trackless 
 
//PRE-CHORUS:
 
Csus2/G             Dsus2/A     Csus2/G    Dsus2/A
Searching through a grim eternity
Csus2/G         Dsus2/A      Csus2/G     Dsus2/A
Sculptured by a prehistoric sea
 
//CHORUS:
 
A5   A5/G   E5
 
A5     A5/G       E5
Seven Cities of Gold
A5           A5/G      E5
Stories that fired my imagination 
A5    Bsus2/F#  Csus2/G
Seven Cities of Gold 
A5            Bsus2/F#    Csus2/G
A splendid mirage in this desolation 
                      1+2+3+
E5    Dsus2/A  (3/4): G   B
Seven Cities of       Gold 
E5            Dsus2/A         G   B
Glowing in my dreams, like hallucinations 
A5             A5/G       E5
Glitter in the sun like a revelation 
A5           A5/G           E5        [THEME]
Distant as a comet or a constellation 
 
//VERSE 2:
 
  D5/A             A5                 A5/G    [THEME]
A man can lose himself, in a country like this
C#sus2/G#
Rewrite the story
  G           Bsus2/F#     [THEME]
Recapture the glory
  D5/A               A5                 A5/G  [THEME]
A man could lose his life, in a country like this 
C#sus2/G#
Sunblind and friendless 
G          Bsus2/F#     [THEME]
Frozen and endless 
 
//PRE-CHORUS:
 
Csus2/G             Dsus2/A     Csus2/G    Dsus2/A
And the nights grow longer, the farther I go
Csus2/G             Dsus2/A     Csus2/G    Dsus2/A
Wake to aching cold, and a deep Sahara of snow 
 
//CHORUS:
 
A5     A5/G       E5
Seven Cities of Gold
A5           A5/G      E5
Stories that fired my imagination

Csus2/G        Dsus2/A                Csus2/G          Dsus2/A
A long-awaited treasure at the end of my cruel fate
