Beyond The Iron Gate-crd  Richard Shindell

[D]  [A]   [D]  [A]  [D]First warm day in all these [A]months[G]
[D]All the sunlight made me  [A]drunk
[G]Made me feel like I could  [D]run
Made me feel like I was  [A]young [G]
[D]So I went out all on my  [A]own[G]
[D]I told no one where'd I'd [A]go
[G]Anyway I did not  [D]know I only knew I had to  [A]go
[G]Out beyond the iron [D]gate
[Bm]Out there where you [G]said [A]you'd [D]wait[D] [A] [D] [A]
[D]Gotten used to living h[A]ere[G]
[D]Call it habit  call it [A]fear
[G]Though I had glanced your way for [D]years
Til today  I'd never da[A]red [G]
[D]But it was easy slipping [A]through[G]
[D]Easy as the morning [A]dew
[G]That lingers til the afternoo[D]n
And rises back into the [A]blue
[G]Out beyond the iron  [D]gate
[Bm]Out there where you [G]said  [A]you'd [D]wait[D] [A] [D] [A]
SOLO
[D]There you were right by my s[A]ide[G]
[D]Reaching down to lift me  [A]high
[G]I held on with all my  [D]might
Held on to a world made [A]right
[G]Out beyond the iron [D]gate
[Bm]Out there where you  [G]said [A]you'd [D]wait[D] [A] [D] [A]
[D]I heard voices all a[A]round  [D]Someone lifted off the [A]shroud
[G]I saw my children gather  [D]round
Now I will tell them what I f[A]ound
[G]Out beyond the iron [D]gate
[Bm]Out there where you  [G]said [A]you'd [D]wait[D] [A] [D] [A]
SOLO
