Verse 1
C - 2nd fret
[D]I'm not smart enough for this [Em]life I've been [A7]livin',
A [G]little bit slow for the [Em]pace of the [A]dream.
It's [Bm]not I'm ungrateful for [G]all I've been given;
But [Em]nevertheless, [A]just th[D]e same...
Verse 2
[D]I wish to my soul, I was [Em]back in Mon-[A7]tana,
[G]High on my mountain and [Em]deep in the [A]snow.
[Bm]Up in my cabin, [G]over the valley,
[Em]Under the [A]blankets with [D]you.
Chorus
[Bm] [G] [A] [D] [A]  
 
 O-------- O---- ver the ocean from here. (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

[Bm] [G] [A] [D] [A]  
 
 O-------- O---- ver the mountains from there. (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

Verse 3
[D]Who can imagine the [Em]scale of the [A7]forces
That [G]pushed this old mountain range [Em]up in the [A]sky?
Tec-[Bm]tonic creation, e-[G]rosion, mutation;
[Em]Somethin' to [A]pleasure God's [D]eye.
Verse 4
[D]The world is a wonder of [Em]lightnin' and [A7]thunder,
And [G]green of the ground as we [Em]fall from the [A]sky.
The [Bm]old and new faces, the [G]tribes and the races...
[Em]Thousands of [A]places to t[D]ry.
Chorus
[Bm] [G] [A] [D] [A]  
 
 O-------- O---- ver the ocean from here. (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

[Bm] [G] [A] [D] [A]  
 
 O-------- O---- ver the mountains from there. (Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh)

Bridge
[D]One sits and [Em]waits while the [A]other one [Bm]wanders,
And [G]squanders his [Em]time with a [A]life on the road.
[Bm]Down from the mountain, a-[G]cross the wide ocean,
The [Bm]world is in motion and [A]cannot be [D]slowed.
Verse 5
[D]Enough for today... the de-[Em]mands of the [A7]moment,
The [G]thing on my mind is the [Em]work in my [A]hand.
[Bm]Wood for the woodstove and [G]water for coffee,
[Em]Somethin' I can [A]still under-[D]stand.
Verse 6
[D]We got a few friends but [Em]not many [A7]neighbors,
The [G]trip into town takes us [Em]most of the [A]day.
And [Bm]after,"Hello", and "it's [G]sure good to see you",
It [Em]seems like there's [A]nothin' to [D]say.
Outro
[Bm] [G] [A] [D]  
 
 O-------- O---- ver the ocean from here.
