From a distance

Nanci Griffith

 GC/GDG
>From a distance, the world looks blue and green
 CDGDC/G
And the snow capped mountains white       
 GCDG
>From a distance, the ocean meets the stream
 G/BCDGD
 And the eagle takes to flight  
 GCmaj7DEm
 >From a distance, there is harmony
 CG/BG/DD
And it echoes through the land    
 CG/BCG/B
It's the voice of hope, it's the voice of peace
 CDGDC/GGCG/DD
It's the voice of every man                      

>From a distance, we all have enough

And no one is in need

There are no guns, no bombs, no disease,

No hungry mouths to feed

>From a distance, we are instruments

Marching in a common band

Playing songs of hope, playing songs of peace

They're the songs of every man

 G/CCDGEm
                                    God is watching us, God is watching us,
 Em7Am7C/DDG
 God is watching us, from a distance

>From a distance, you look like my friend

Even though we are at war

>From a distance, I can't comprehend

What all this war is for

>From a distance, there is harmony

And it echoes through the land

It's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves,

It's the heart of every man

 G/CCDGEm
And God is watching us, God is watching us,
 Em7Am7C/DDG
 God is watching us, from a distance
 G/BAm7C/DEm7G/BCAm7DG
Oh God is watching us, from a distance
