Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Seven Hillsides  Ricky Skaggs

[Am]All night I've wrestled Jacob's angels and prayed with Matthew Luke and John
                                    Struggling to find t[G]he words to face the task that comes upon the blood red
[Am]I've buried men before their time of alcohol and blackened lung
but how to bury seven of these Appalachian minersâ sons
who stor[G]med the beaches wave on wave, and sailed home to these rocky graves
and fam[Am]ily plots that bared their names,
[C]Tomorrow Ill[G] walk up, se[Dm]ven hil[Am]lsides
[C]tremble bef[G]ore my flock on se[Dm]ven hi[Am]llsides
[F]seven [G]sorrows seven s[Am]ons, seven m[G]others and every one[F]
will turn to me for the word of God what does this mean,
    [G]                                an[F]d there Ill stand good book in hand, a shepherd to these precious lambs
what will I say    what will I say     what can [G]I say[Am]
[Am]To tell the truth Id never thought much about the will of God before
                                    called to preach [G]at seventeen I was in love with fiery words and not much more
[Am]the time has come to keep the faith for others shattered by their loss
                                    remi[G]nd them of the loving God whose son like theirs paid the cost to save a
[sad]    [and]                                         wi[Am]cked world through sacrifice our love is heard and pray that I believe
those words
awesome song
i hope people start putting more bluegrass tabs. I'd like to see them
