Farther On  Jackson Browne

In my [Dsus4/A]early    [D/A]years I [Asus4]hid my [A]tears
And [Bm]passed my [G]days alo[D]ne
[Bm]Adrift on an o[E]cean of[Asus4] l[A]oneliness
My d[G]reams like [Asus4] [A]nets were [D]thrown
To [Dsus4/A]catch  the [D/A]love that  [Asus4]I'd heard [A]of
In [Bm]books and [G]films and [D]songs
Now there's a [Bm]world of ill[E]usion and  [Asus4]fan[A]tasy
In the [G]place where the [Asus4] real [A]world [D]belongs
Still I [G]look for the [A]beauty in [D]songs
To fill my [F#m]head and lead me [A]on
Though my [G]dreams have [A]come up torn and [D]empty
As many [A]times as love has come and [G]gone
To those [Dsus4/A]gentle     [D/A]ones  my [Asus4]memory [A]runs
To the [Bm]laughter we [G]shared at the [D]meals
[Bm]I filled their [E]kitchens and [Asus4] living [A]rooms
With my[G] schemes and my [Asus4] [A] broken wh[D]eels
It was [Dsus4/A]never     [D/A]clear how [Asus4]far or [A]near
The [Bm]gates to my c[G]itadel lay [D]
They were [Bm]cutting from [E]stone some [Asus4] dreams of their [A]own
But they [G]listened to [Asus4] mine [A] anyway [D]
I'm not [G]sure what I'm [A]trying to say [D]
It could [F#m]be I've lost my [A]way
Though I [G]keep a [A]watch over the [D]distance
Heaven's no [A]closer than it was yester[G]day
And the [D]angels are [A]older    [F#]
They [Bm]know not to wait [Bm/A]up for the sun [G]
They look over my [D]shoulder  [A/C#]
At the [Bm]maps and the [Bm/A]drawings of the [E/G#]journey I've beg[A]un
|Dsus4/A  D/A  | [Asus4] | A       |Bm   G   |D   A/C#  |
|Bm       E    | [Asus4] |A       |G     [Asus4] |A   |D         |
|Dsus4/A  D/A  | [Asus4] |A       |Bm   G   |D   A/C#  |
|Bm       E    | [Asus4] |A       |G     [Asus4] |A   |D         |

Now the [G]distance l[A]eads me farther [D]on
Though the [F#m]reasons I once had are [A]gone
I keep [G]thinking I'll [A]find what I'm [D]looking for
In the [A]sand beneath the [G]dawn

But the [D]angels are [A]older    [F#]
They [Bm]can see that the [Bm/A]sun's setting f[G]ast
They look over my [D]shoulder  [A/C#]
At the [Bm]vision of par[Bm/A]adise cont[E/G#]ained in the light of the [A]past
And they[D] lay down b[A]ehind me [F#]
To sleep beside the [Bm]road till the [Bm/A]morning has com[G]e
Where they know they will [D]find me [A/C#]
With my [Bm]maps and my [Bm/A]faith in the distanc[G]e
Moving [A]farther [D]on     [G]   [A]
|D A/C# |Bm Bm/A |G A |D ||
