Two Thousand Years  Billy Joel

Ok I'm kinda new, so go easy on me
Billy Joel
Two Thousand Years
From The River of Dreams
In the begi[F]nning
there was the co[Bb]ld and the ni[C]ght
Prophets and ang[Gm]els
gave us the f[C]ire and the li[F]ght
Man was triu[Dm]mphant
Armed with the f[A]ai[dim]th and the wi[Bb]ll[B] [dim]
That even the dar[Bb]kest ag[F]es couldn't k[C]ill
Too many kin[F]gdoms
Too many f[Bb]lags on the fi[C]eld
So many bat[Gm]tles
So many wo[C]unds to be hea[F]led
Time is rele[Dm]ntless
Only true [Adim]love pers[Bb]ever[Bdim]es
It's been a l[F]ong time and n[Bb]ow I'm with y[Dm]ou
After t[C]wo thousand ye[F]ars
This is our mo[F]ment
Here at the cros[Bb]sroads of t[C]ime
We hope our chi[Gm]ldren
Carry our dr[C]eams down the l[F]ine
they are the vin[Dm]tage
What kind of l[A]if[dim]e will they [Bb]live[Bdim]?
Is this a cu[Bb]rse or a ble[F]ssing that we g[C]ive?
Sometimes I wo[F]nder
Why are we [Bb]so blind to [C]Fate?
Without comp[Gm]assion
there can be [C]no end to [F]hate
No end to so[Dm]rrow
caused by the [Adim]same endless [Bb]fear[Bdim]s
Why can?t we l[Bb]earn from [F]all we?ve been [Dm]through
after two [C]thousand years?[F]
There will be mir[F]acles
after the l[Bb]ast war is w[C]on
Science and p[Gm]oetry
Rule in the [C]new world to [F]come
Prophets and an[Dm]gels
gave us the [dim]power to [Bb]see[Bdim]
what an ama[Bb]zing [F]future there will [C]be
And in the eve[F]ning
after the f[Bb]ire and the l[C]ight
One thing is cer[Gm]tain
nothing can [C]hold back the [F]night
Time is rele[Dm]ntless
and as the [Adim]past di[Bb]sapp[Bdim]ears
We?re on the [F]verge of [Bb]all things [Dm]new
We are [C]two thou[Bb]sand ye[F]ars
Outro
[F-Bb-C-F]  
Notes: I find that the F and Bb in the second-to-last line of each stanza is
I placed them where I thought they sounded best, but they are subjective. Also, at the
of
stanza, Joel goes up the bass from F to Bb (starting at F to G etc.) and when the bass
to Bb the chord changes. That?s easier to understand on piano
