INTRO

Na je su achwa ne kwa, ta e su fa da da he
Na je su achwa ne kwa, ta e su fa da da he
Ta e su fa da da he, fa da da he

Kasi wa i[A1], kasi wa i, ma ka sim[E]ba, er e      [D]

Ndaka sim[F#m]ba, kanamaka simba [E]ow

Ndaka sim[F#m]ba, kanamaka simba [E]ow
VERSE

Raise your head[A1], beat the sun

But your boy[E]s they lie, so close to you [D]
Do you dare get up[F#m] and wake the [E]two?
Oh E[A1]lias, I see you there, at work in the day[E] time
Do you think you could answer all the questions of the world,[D]
in just one w[F#m]ord? I think you cou[E]ld
PRE-CHORUS


[A1]   If you d[E]ie will I [F#m]get w[E]ord t[D]hat you're gone,[A1]
Or will I h[E]ear it in pas[F#m]sing co[E]nver[D]sation?[A1]
Or will I stop[E] short an[F#m]d   [E]fall [D]to the ground?[A1]
Distance is s[E]hort when your [F#m]hand ca[E]rries [D]what your eye [A1]found.
CHORUS


[A1]Hold my han[E]d just one more tim[F#m]e,
To see if you're real[E]ly gonna [D]meet me
[A1]Hold my hand[E] just one more tim[F#m]e,
To see if you're rea[E]lly gonna [D]meet me...
VERSE (same chords as verse 1)

Honest and Manuel, well you know,
They're at school now, given the chance that their father's never seen,
To see what's beyond Section 17
And in ten years, when you look back at your boys,
Well you know they've grown way taller than the tallest,
Sugar cane in the field.

VERSE

And I see your wife, she stands stooped over by the fire outside
And I see your boys, and when they look up
You know I think they got their mother's eyes

Cause she looks so proud [D]          [A1]

She looks so hap[D]py        [E]
She looks so p[D]roud      [A1]
She looks so ha[D]ppy      [E]
Yeah!


PRE-CHORUS (the only variation of it here)

[A1]  If you [E]die, will I [F#m]get w[E]ord t[D]hat you're gone [A1]

Or Will I [E]hear it in pas[F#m]sing [E]conve[D]rsation? [A1]
Or will I sto[E]p short and[F#m]    [E]fall [D]to the ground? [A1]
Distance is [E]short when your[F#m] hand [E]carries [D]what your eye found [A1]
