They [C]say my final [G]masterpiece
Was [F]this house on the [C]hill
High above the [G]great and mighty [D]river
My [C]hand could not hold the [G]brushes
Yes, I [F]guess I lost my [C]will
And you [C]can't keep painting [G]paradise for[D]ever
Oh [C]forever

>From the[C] Andes to N[G]iagara
To [F]where we stand [C]today
I drew the great cre[G]ations of my [D]Master
'til the [C]oil and the [G]canvas
Lord, I [F]threw them all [C]away
And [C]traded them for [G]stone and brick and [D]plaster
I traded them all for [C]you
__This part is sung in conjunction with the fill:__
[C]Winter wind blows and the river lies frozen [G]at my feet
(I traded them all for you)
[C]Springtime come and the river wanna run [G]above the street

She [C]came to me one [G]night
While I was [F]tossing in my [C]dreams
She said she'd give my [G]family pro[D]tection
I re[C]call the night I [G]died
Beneath her [F]arches and her [C]beams
I thanked her for the [G]shelter and di[D]rection
I was lost until O[C]lana
__This part is sung in conjunction with the fill:__
[C]Sun beat down on a summertime town; he [G]left me here
(I was lost until Olana)
[C]Watching these hills turning gold for one more year

Oh, [F]I've been from Jerusalem to [Am]Rome
Now I'm [F]floating through these rooms tonight [Am]alone
And [F]looking back on everything
[C]All I ever [D]wanted was a [C]home
__This part is sung in conjunction with the fill:__
I was lost until Olana
How sweet the sound
How sweet the sound
They say my final masterpiece
Was this house upon a hill
