Verse:
[Cm] Beyond the [Cm7]horizon of the[Ab] place we lived when we were young
[Cm] In a world of[Cm7] magnets and miracle[Ab]s
[Cm] Our thoughts strayed [Cm7]constantly and wi[Ab]thout boundary
[Cm] The ringing of the[Cm7] division bell had b[Ab]egun
[Ab] Along the lon[Bb]g road and on [G7]down the causeway
[Ab] Do they stil[Bb]l meet there b[G7]y the cut.
[Cm] There was a ragged[Cm7] band who followed i[Ab]n our footsteps
[Cm] Running before tim[Cm7]es took our dreams a[Ab]way
[Cm] Leaving the myriad[Cm7] small creatures try[Ab]ing to tie us to the ground
[Cm] To a life consumed[Cm7] by slow decay[Ab]
Chorus 1:
[Ab] The grass was gr[Cm]eener[Gm] [Ab] [Bb]
The light was bri[Cm]ghter[Eb] [Fm] [Ab]
When friends surr[Cm]ounde[Gm]d[Ab] [Bb]
The nights of won[Cm]der[Eb] [Fm]
Verse:
[Cm] Looking beyond the[Cm7] embers of bridges g[Ab]lowing behind us
[Cm] To a glimpse of ho[Cm7]w green it was on th[Ab]e other side
[Cm] Steps taken forwar[Cm7]ds but sleepwalking [Ab]back again
[Cm] Dragged by the for[Cm7]ce of some sleeping [Ab]tide
[Ab] At a higher [Bb]altitude with [G7]flag unfurled
[Ab] We reached t[Bb]he dizzy heights of that[G7] dreamed of world
Bridge backed with snare drum:
(Nylon Strung guitar)

Verse:
[Cm] Encumbered forever[Cm7] by desire and ambit[Ab]ion
[Cm] There's a hunger st[Cm7]ill unsatisfied[Ab]
[Cm] Our weary eyes sti[Cm7]ll stray to the hori[Ab]zon
[Cm] Though down this r[Cm7]oad I've been so man[Ab]y times
Chorus 2:
[Ab] The grass was gre[Cm]ener[Gm] [Ab] [Bb]
The light was bri[Cm]ghter[Eb] [Fm] [Ab]
The taste was swe[Cm]eter[Gm] [Ab] [Bb]
The nights of won[Cm]der[Eb] [Fm] [Ab]
With friends surr[Cm]ounded[Gm] [Ab] [Bb]
The dawn mist glo[Cm]wing[Eb] [Fm] [Ab]
The water flo[Cm]wing[Gm] [Ab] [Bb]
The endless ri[Cm]ver[Eb] [Fm] [Ab]
Forever and ever...
(Lap steel solo)
