Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Seven Hillsides  Misc. Gospel

[Am]All night I've wrestled Jacob's angel

And prayed with Matthew Luke and John

Struggling to find the words to face the task
that comes upon the [G]blood red dawn    [Am]

I've buried men before their time

of alcohol and blackened lung

But how to bury seven of these Appalachian miner's sons
Who s[G]tormed the beaches wave on wave,

And sailed home to these rocky graves
In f[Am]amily plots that bear their names,

[C]Tomorrow I[G]'ll walk up, [Dm]seven [Am]hillsides
[C]Tremble be[G]fore my flock on [Dm]seven [Am]hillsides
[F]Seven [G]sorrows seven [Am]sons, seven [G]mothers and every [F]one

Will turn to me for the word of God what does this mean,
And [G]there I'll stand Good Book in hand,
A shepherd to these precious [F]lambs
What will I say, what will I [G]say
What can I [Am]say

[Am]To tell the truth I'd never thought much
About the will of God before

When called to preach at seventeen
I was in love with fiery words and not [G]much more   [Am]

The time has come to keep the faith

For others shattered by their loss
Remind them of the loving God

Whose son like their's paid the cost
To [G]save a sad and wicked world

Through sacrifice our love is heard
And [Am]pray that I believe those words
