Farther On

Jackson Browne

 Dsus4/AD/AAsus4A
In my early    years I hid my tears
 BmGD
And passed my days alone
 BmEAsus4A
 Adrift on an ocean of loneliness
 GAsus4AD
My dreams like  nets were thrown
 Dsus4/AD/AAsus4A
To catch  the love that  I'd heard of
 BmGD
In books and films and songs
 BmEAsus4A
Now there's a world of illusion and  fantasy
 GAsus4AD
In the place where the  real world belongs
 GAD
Still I look for the beauty in songs

 F#mA
To fill my head and lead me on
 GAD
Though my dreams have come up torn and empty
 AG
As many times as love has come and gone

 Dsus4/AD/AAsus4A
To those gentle     ones  my memory runs
 BmGD
To the laughter we shared at the meals
 BmEAsus4A
 I filled their kitchens and  living rooms
 GAsus4AD
With my schemes and my   broken wheels

 Dsus4/AD/AAsus4A
It was never     clear how far or near
 BmGD
The gates to my citadel lay 
 BmEAsus4A
They were cutting from stone some  dreams of their own
 GAsus4AD
But they listened to  mine  anyway 
 GAD
I'm not sure what I'm trying to say 

 F#mA
It could be I've lost my way
 GAD
Though I keep a watch over the distance
 AG
Heaven's no closer than it was yesterday

 DAF#
And the angels are older    
 BmBm/AG
They know not to wait up for the sun 
 DA/C#
They look over my shoulder  
 BmBm/AE/G#A
At the maps and the drawings of the journey I've begun

Solo:

 GAD
Now the distance leads me farther on
 F#mA
Though the reasons I once had are gone
 GAD
I keep thinking I'll find what I'm looking for
 AG
In the sand beneath the dawn

 DAF#
But the angels are older    
 BmBm/AG
They can see that the sun's setting fast
 DA/C#
They look over my shoulder  
 BmBm/AE/G#A
At the vision of paradise contained in the light of the past
 DAF#
And they lay down behind me 
 BmBm/AG
To sleep beside the road till the morning has come
 DA/C#
Where they know they will find me 
 BmBm/AG
With my maps and my faith in the distance
 ADGA
Moving farther on
