The Pearl  Emmylou Harris

Emmylou Harris The Pearl written by Emmylou Harris
[A]O the dragons are gonna [E]fly to[A]night
[A]They're circling low and ins[E]ide ton[A]ight
[F#m]It's another [D]round in the l[A]osing fight
[C#m]Out a[E]long the great divide t[A]onight
[A]We are aging soldiers in an [E]ancient [A]war
Seeking out some half [E]remembered [A]shore
[F#m]We drink our [D]fill and still we t[A]hirst for more
[C#m]Asking if there's no h[E]eaven what is this [A]hunger for
[D]Our path is worn our feet are [A]poorly shod
[D]We lift up our prayer [A]against the odds
[E]And fear the silence is the [D]voice of [A]God of [E]God of [A]God
And we cry [D]Allelu[A]jah [D]Allelu[A]jah
We cry [F#m]Alle[D]lu[A]ja[E]h[A]
[A]Sorrow is constant and the [E]joys are[A] brief
[A]The seasons come and bring no [E]sweet r[A]elief
[F#m]Time is a [D]brutal but a [A]careless theif
[C#m]Who takes our [E]lot but leaves b[A]ehind the grief
[D]It is the heart that kills us [A]in the end
[D]Just one more old broken [A]bone that cannot mend
[E]As it was now and ever [D]shall be [A]amen [E]amen [A]amen
And we cry [D]Allelu[A]jah [D]Allelu[A]jah
We cry [F#m]Alle[D]lu[A]ja[E]h[A]
[A]So there'll be no guiding light for [E]you and [A]me
[A]We are not sailors lost out [E]on the [A]sea
[F#m]We were always [D]headed toward [A]eternity
[C#m]Hoping f[E]or a glimpse of G[A]aililee
[D]Like falling stars from the unive[A]rse we are hurled
[D]Down through the long loneli[A]ness of the world
[E]Until we behold the pain [D]become the [A]pearl the [E]pearl the [A]pearl
And we cry [D]Allelu[A]jah [D]Allelu[A]jah
We cry [F#m]Alle[D]lu[A]ja[E]h[A]
