C G
Al ong the road to the market town the tr avelers come and go
C G
They  ask me about the people there, as if they're sure I'll  know.
Dm F
"Are they kind? Are they generous?  crafty or  cruel?
C F
Oh,  stranger, I pray, tell me what I will  find."
F C F C
And I s it by the  road, and I sm ile at the  fool
F C F G C
And ask, "Wh at are the  folk like where  you left  beh ind?"
F C
You m ust understand that the h eart is a mirror
Dm C G
Refl ecting the hearts of the m irrors it kn ows
F C F C
And the p eople you s ee in your  own expect ations
F C F G C
Will  always be  with you wher ever  you  go.
C G
One  came by only yesterday to  ask me about the town
C G
His  eyes were hard, his face was grey, his mouth it wore a  frown.
Dm
He ranted at length of the  people he knew:
C F
They were  sullen and crooked and always to  blame
F C F C
So I  stepped to the  side, and I  bowed his way  through
F C F G C
And  said, "I think  here you will  find them  the  same."
F C
You m ust understand that the h eart is a mirror
Dm C G
Refl ecting the hearts of the m irrors it kn ows
F C F C
And the p eople you s ee in your  own expect ations
F C F G C
Will  always be  with you wher ever  you  go.

C G
  Later there came a girl whose smile  sparkled with joy and fun.
C G
She  shared her water and bread with me, as we sat in the fading  sun
Dm F
She told me of sisters and  brothers and  friends
C F
She'd  loved almost everyone ever she  knew.
F C F C
Said, "I'm  eager to  meet the good  folk of this  place!"
F C F G G
told her, "You'll  find them as  friendly  as  you."
F C
You m ust understand that the h eart is a mirror
Dm C G
Refl ecting the hearts of the m irrors it kn ows
F C F C
And the p eople you s ee in your  own expect ations
F C F G C
Will  always be w ith you wher ever  you  go
Am G C
They're  all your own m irror can sh ow.
