Wheatland (for Peter)  Russell Lawson

Fsus2 alternates with Cmaj7sus4 and C4 by striking the 2nd string alternating with the 1st string)
KEY OF D: CAPO 2
[C]suddenly, I was looking down upon
[C]Wheatland shining [Fsus2]in the sun
[C]Spring erupting from the trees
and the flowers and the [Fsus2]furrowed field
light as a [E]dove, I rose and hovered on the [Am]breeze
I am [Cmaj]free, I am [G]free

and I could [C]see tears falling like the dew
[C]on family, friends and all my [Fsus2]brothers, too
beneath the [C]oaks, gathered ghostly shades
[C]Johnny Reb beside Pa[Fsus2]munkey braves
sending their [E]own where father and forefather surely [Am]went before
to Kingdom's [Cmaj]shore, to Kingdom's [G]shore

[F]Wheatland
[F]where roots and river go [Am]hand in hand
[Am]where life and [F]love began
I am sleeping [F 6/9]in the [G]sand
then, [C]I beheld a vast horizon to the sea
[C]and mountains towering [Fsus2]under feet
I knew [C]ages past and yet to be
[C]and light was pouring [Fsus2]over me
and filled with [E]love, the Shepherd called me safely [Am]on
to my [Cmaj]home, to my [G]home
[F]Wheatland
[F]where roots and river go [Am]hand in hand
[Am]where life and [F]love began
I am sleeping [F 6/9]in the [G]sand
and, instant[C]ly, I felt every grieving heart
[C]and I could reach inside and [Fsus2]be a part
in days to [C]come when your sorrow finally wanes
[C]you'll find peace awaits where [Fsus2]I remain
and I'll be [E]near, in the water, the wild geese and on the [Am]summer breeze
because I'm [Cmaj]free, because I'm [G]free
[F]Wheatland
[F]where roots and river go [Am]hand in hand
[Am]where life and [F]love began
I am sleeping [F 6/9]in the [G]sand
