Smoke And Mirrors
B/E           E 
      When I was a boy 
 
      B/E              E 
      all the books I read 
 
         A 
      I followed like a blind man 
 
 
      to heed the words my father said. 
 
 
       
 
             E              B          E 
      Those golden summers faded into night, 
 
       B               E 
      words become a dream, 
 
          A 
      the echoes of my childhood 
 
           B 
      and where the path is winding. 
 
 
       
 
       G 
      May God bless you, 
 
       F                          G 
      keep you safe from all harm. 
 
                             C 
      Oh, may I stand by you always. 
 
       G 
      Time and motion. 
 
       F 
      Hands touch, 
 
                     G             G/F   F   Em/F   Dm/F   C/F   Dm/F 
      lips find a way to heaven on high. 
 
 
 
 
      E    B/E    E    B/E     A/E 
 
 
       
 
       B/E                 E 
      Watch the children play, 
 
      B/E                  E 
      the child becomes a man, 
 
          A 
      and all the tangled webs we weave, 
 
 
      you swear it as we live and breath. 
 
 
 
 
 
          E              B               E 
      We stay together, death until you part. 
 
       B                 E 
      Winner takes the prize. 
 
          A 
      The future's at your finger tips, 
 
       B 
      right before your eyes. 
 
 
       
 
      G 
      No more sorrow (smoke and mirrors). 
 
      F 
      No more nights with no end. (I really learned a lot) 
 
  G               C 
      I see my tomorrows (smoke and mirrors) 
 
 
       
 
 
  Am                       E7 
      And nothing from nothing. 
 
                      Am 
      And ashes to ash  es, they say. 
 
  F                              E7 
      All the more that you reach out 
 
                           F 
      the more that it runs away. 
 
 
       
 
G                   F 
      Smoke and mirrors. 
 
G                   C

                         (No more goodbyes)            (No   lies) 
      That's all I ever got,              smoke and mirrors.

      keep you safe from all harm.

About the artist behind Smoke And Mirrors:

The Bee Gees were a singing trio of brothers — Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb — that became one of the most successful musical acts of the 20th century. They were born on the Isle of Man to English parents, lived in Chorlton, Manchester, England and moved to Brisbane, Australia during their childhood years, where they began their musical careers. Their worldwide success came when they returned to England and signed with producer Robert Stigwood.

The multiple Grammy Award-winning group was successful for most of its forty years of recording music, but it had two distinct periods of exceptional success: as a harmonic "soft rock" act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and as the foremost stars of the disco music era in the late 1970s.

No matter the style, the Bee Gees sang tight three-part harmonies that were instantly recognizable; as brothers, their voices blended perfectly, in the same way that The Everly Brothers' did. Barry sang lead on many songs, and an R&B falsetto introduced in the disco years; Robin provided the clear vibrato lead that was a hallmark of their pre-disco music; Maurice sang high and low harmonies throughout their career. The three brothers co-wrote most of their hits, and they said that they felt like they became 'one person' when they were writing. The group's name was retired after Maurice died in January 2003.

The Bee Gees were inducted into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997; fittingly, the presenter of the award to "Britain's first family of harmony"[1] was Brian Wilson, leader of the Beach Boys, America's first family of rock harmony.

It has been estimated that the Bee Gees' record sales total more than 220 million, easily making them one of the best-selling music artists of all-time. The above figure in record sales does not include record sales for artists for whom they have written and with whom they have collaborated. Their 1997 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame citation says "Only Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees".[2]
