Thousand Year Prayer  Cowboy Junkies

INTRO: Fmaj7 Cmaj7 2x
[Fmaj7]Here we all are at the end of "the century of [Cmaj7]beauty lost".
We [Fmaj7]greedily ate what you gave us, the [Cmaj7]rest we tossed.
We've [F]trapped all your rivers, [Em7]paved every pass,
Pulled at your [Fm]sky till we caused it [Am]to rip.
But you've [Fmaj7]got Jimi Hendrix so lets call it a[Cmaj7]n even split.
[Fmaj7]I've met a girl who has turned my whole world [Cmaj7]upside down.
[Fmaj7]The stars I once stretched for, now [Cmaj7]litter the ground.
I am c[F]ursed by too little, or is it [Em7]too much belief,
In the [Fm]strength of another man's [Am]words.
But [Fmaj7]I've got a girl, [Cmaj7]thank you Lord.
[Fmaj7]Ahhhhhhh [Cmaj7]Ahhhhhh [F]Ahhhhhhh [C]Ahhhhh 2x
Fmaj7 Cmaj7 2x
[Fmaj7]Here we all are at the start of another [Cmaj7]thousand years.
[Fmaj7]All those love stories, [Cmaj7]yet to be told.
[F]Ours is this river a[Em7]sleep at our feet,
[Fm]Blessed by this wet autumn [Am]day.
[Fmaj7]Here we all are...
[Fmaj7]Ahhhhhhh [Cmaj7]Ahhhhhh [F]Ahhhhhhh [C]Ahhhhh 2x -FADE
