From A Distance  Nanci Griffith

From a[G] distance, the[C/G] world looks[D] blue and[G] green
And the [C]snow capped [D]mountains [G]white [D] [C/G]
From a[G] distance, the[C] ocean[D] meets the[G] stream
[G/B]And the [C]eagle [D]takes to [G]flight [D]
[G]From a[Cmaj7] distance,[D] there i[Em]s harmony
And it [C]echoes [G/B]through the l[G/D]and  [D]
It's the [C]voice of [G/B]hope, it's the [C]voice of [G/B]peace
It's the [C]voice of [D]every [G]man[D] [C/G] [G] [C] [G/D] [D]

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/C]God is [C]watching [D]us, God is watc[G]hing [Em]us,
  [Em7]God is [Am7]watching [C/D]us, [D]from a [G]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

  And [G/C]God is [C]watching [D]us, God is watc[G]hing [Em]us,
  [Em7]God is [Am7]watching [C/D]us, [D]from a [G]distance
  Oh [G/B]God is [Am7]watching us, [C/D]from a distance [Em7] [G/B] [C] [Am7] [D] [G]
