Crossing Osiyeza  Johnny Clegg

[F]Through all the days that [Dm]eat away
at e[Bb]very breath that I [F]take
through all the nights I've [Dm]lain alone
in s[Bb]omeone else's dream, [F]awa[C]ke
[Bb]all the words in truth we have [F]spoken
that the [Bb]wind has blown aw[F]ay [C]
it's [Dm]only [C]you that [Bb]remains with m[F]e
[Em]clear as the light of [C]day

[D]O Siyeza, o siyeza , sizo[Dsus4]fika webaba noma
(we are coming, we are coming, we will arrive soon)
[D]O siyeza, [Bm]o siyeza, siya[A]gudle lomhlaba
(we are coming, we are coming, we are moving across this earth)
Siya[Em]wela lapheshaya lu[Bm]lezontaba ezimnyama
(we are crossing over those dark mountains)
[Em]Lapha sobheka [G]phansi [D]konke ukhuluphek[A]a
(where we will lay down our troubles)

[D]  [Dsus4]      [D]                             
A [F]punch drunk man in a [Dm]downtown bar
[Bb]takes a beating without making a [F]sound
through swollen eyes he [Dm]sways and smiles
[Bb]'cause noone can put him [F]dow[C]n
[Bb]inside of him a boy looks up to his [F]father
for a [Bb]sign or an approving [F]eye[C]
oh, it's [Dm]funny how [Am]those once so [Bb]close and now [F]gone
can [Em]still so affect our [C]lives


[A]Take me now, don't let [E]go
[A]hold me close, I'm coming home[D]  [G]
