Cowboy Junkies Lyrics




INTRO: G Am Em C G Am7 Em  Fmaj7

G                   Am7
No one in sight for fifty miles,
Em              C         G                  Am     Em  C
Sleeping fields sigh as I glide across their spines.
G                       Am7   
If I can just reach the crest of that hill
Em                  C              G            Am7  Em C
This whole day will tumble, out the night will spill.

G                        Am7 
The sky as still as a spinning top,
Em             C                 G          Am     Em C       
Shooting stars drop like burning words from above.
G               Am7
If I could just connect all these dots
   Em                         C              G    Am7 Em Fmaj7 
The truth would tumble like a Cynic vexed by love.

CHORUS:

G                   Am         Bm            Em7
And yet people keep saying I'm miles from my home,
Am   G        Am   G   
miles from my home.

BREAK: G Am Em Fmaj7

VERSE:
G                     Am7
I met you again in my sleep last night,
Em                C                    G      Am  Em  C
These are days of slow boats and false starts.
G                   Am7
Hearts remain under lock and key,
    Em                     Fmaj7
And you will be the one to set them both free.


CHORUS:

G                   Am         Bm            Em7
And yet people keep saying I'm miles from my home,
Am   G        Am   C  
miles from my home.

BRIDGE:
           D               G
But that's where I want to be.
Am7       G  
Out there searching,
Am7      G
Out here fumbling,
Am7      G
Out here waiting
Am7                 G
For you and you for me. 

BREAK: G Am Em C G Am7 Em  Fmaj7

VERSE:

The moon hangs like a question mark,
pale as milk, bold as a promise.
When will you share these sights with us?
When will we hold you in our arms?

G                    Am              Bm             Em7
And the people we'll tell them we're miles from our home,
Am   G        Am   G 
miles from my home.
G                    Am              Bm             Em7
And the people we'll tell them we're miles from our home,
Am   G        Am   G 
miles from my home.
Am   G        Am   G 
miles from my home.
Am   G        Am   G 
miles from my home.
Am   G        Am   G 
miles from my home.
Am   G        Am   G 
miles from my home.
