Sunshine on the Land  David Wilcox

I [D]went to see an old friend[G/B]
Who was soon to [Em7]pass away.[A7sus4]
He said, "My [D]life has been so good to [G/B]me.
Now I still got [Em7]one more day."[A7sus4]
Now he s[G]aid that as he watched the morning [A7]sun
And then he smiled my [D]way[D/C#].[D/B] [D/A]
Because he [Em7]said that every morning,[A7sus4]
He lived his l[A7]ife that [D]way.[G/B] [D]
He said, "[D]I am the [G/B]sunshine. [D] You are the [G/B]sunshine.
[Em7] We are the [A7]sunshine. [G]Help me [G/F#]underst[Em7]and.
A7sus4 A7 D G/B D Em7 A7**
We are the sunshine on the land."
He said this [D]day is like a life you [G/B]live,
It's never here to [Em7]stay,[A7sus4]
Because your [D]time is always runnin' [G/B]by
Like the sun across the [Em7]day.[A7sus4] [A7]
But it's like [G]lookin' at the sunshine from the [A7]earth.
The light does [D]come and [D/C#]go.[D/B] [D/A]
But when you're [Em7]lookin' at the earth [A7sus4]shine from the [A7]sun,
It's quite a different [G]show.
He said it's time you [A7]know.
That [D]I am the [G/B]sunshine. [D] You are the [G/B]sunshine.
[Em7] We are the [A7]sunshine. [G]Help me [G/F#]underst[Em7]and.
A7sus4 A7 D G/B D Em7 A7**
We are the sunshine on the land.
Now I'm [D]thinkin' of the things he said.[G/B]
We're walkin' toward the [Em7]grave.[A7sus4] [A7]
And I [D]haven't lived a life like his[G/B]
But I still got o[Em7]ne more day.[A7sus4] [A7]
Now [G]you could say it's only flesh and [A7]bone
The life that's in your [D]han[D/C#]ds[D/B] [D/A]
But I [Em7]like to think it's something [A7sus4]more
Like the [A7]sunshine on the [D]land.[G/B] [D]
[D]I am the [G/B]sunshine. [D] You are the [G/B]sunshine.
[Em7] We are the [A7]sunshine. [G]Help me [G/F#]underst[Em7]and.
We are the [A7sus4]sunshine [A7]on the [D]land[G/B]."[D]
We are the [A7sus4]sunshine [A7]on the [D]land[G/B].[D] [G/B] [D] [G/B] [D]
