World Away From Me  Arlo Guthrie

words and music by Arlo Guthrie
[D] [Dmaj] [D7] [G]  
[D] [Dmaj] [D7] [G]  
[D] [Dmaj] [D7] [G] [Gm] [A] [D]  
I've been [D]keeping on the run
I've been [Am]traveling with the sun
I've been [G]singing all my [A]life and getting [D]by
Got to keep up with what's going on
In this [Am]place I've been so long
And I [G]guess I'll just keep [A]singing all my [D]life
And it's [G]so good to come [D]home
To a [G]woman all al[D]one
For[G]getting how hard [Em]loneliness can [A]be
She will [Em]take me from this [A]world
Then she'll [Em]gently [A]take the [G]world a[A]way from [D]me[Dmaj] [D7] [G] [Gm] [A] [D]
l'll be coming home at night
While the kids are sleeping tight
She'll be lit by firelight and looking fine
And the kids jump out of bed
Hello Daddy, what did you get
Did you think of anything on down the line
She'll be talking with her smile
Saying, honey, wait awhile
The kids have missed you, soon they'll be asleep
She will take me from this world
Then she'll gently take the world away from me
Oh the prophets and the sages
And the wise men through the ages
All that's written down on pages from above
Just can't adequately describe
What I'm feeling here inside
It's just useless to be living without love
And I'll take her by her hand
Just a woman and a man
Without trying to understand what we should be
She will take me from this world
Then she'll gently take the world away from me
