Our Lady of the Well  Jackson Browne

OUR LADY OF THE WELL ? Jackson Browne
|G |C |C |G |
It is a [G]dance we do in silence
Far below this morning [C]sun
You in [C]your life, me in mine
We have be[G]gun
Here we [G]stand and without speaking
Draw the water from the [C]well
And [C]stare beyond the [G]plains
To [G/F#]where the [G/E]mountains [D]lie so [C]still
But it's a [G]long [C]way that I have [G]come
Across the sand to find this [Am]peace among your people in the [C]sun
Where the families work the [G]land as [Bm]they have always [Em]done
Oh it's so [Am]far the other [C]way my country's [G]gone[C]
Across my [G]home has grown the shadow
Of a cruel and senseless [C]hand
Though in [C]some strong hearts
The love and truth [G]remain
And it has [G]taken me this distance
And a [G]woman's smile to [C]learn
That my [C]heart remains [G]among them[G/F#]
And to [G/E]them I [D]must return[C]
But it's a [G]long [C]way that I have [G]come
Across the [G]sand to find you [Am]here among these people in the [C]sun
Where your children will be [G]born
You'll [Bm]watch them as they [Em]run
Oh it's so [Am]far the other [C]way my life has [G]gone
If you [D]look for me, Maria
You will [C]find me in the shade
Wide aw[G]ake or[D/F#] in a d[Em]ream
It's hard to [Bm]tell--[C]
If you [D]come to me, Maria
I will [C]show you what I've made
It's a [G]picture for our [F]lady of the [C]well
||:G |C |Am C |G :|| solo repeat
