lyrics

LIFT AS WE CLIMB
D
i went walking through the half light
G D
through the twilight
D
walking with strangers
F#m A
my closest friends
Bm
past the darkened alleys
G D
through the green valleys
G D
the beautiful cities
Bm A
mountains and rivers without end
-
C
can you hear the trumpets
D
hear the clamor, the call
Bm
it's our better angels
A
crying to us all
-
D Em
lift as we climb
F#m G
lift as we climb
D Bm
together undiminished
G A
together we shine
D Em
lift as we climb
F#m G
lift as we climb
D
undiminished
A
we shine
-
D
i saw pastures of plenty
G D
ribbons of road
D
the hills of old Mingo
F#m A
torn apart for coal
Bm
mud on my boot heels
G D
gristle in my teeth
G D
i saw the mansion on the hill
Bm A
& the families on relief
-
C
the river is rising
D
storms loom in the sky
Bm
the old demons that haunt us
A
they'll be gone bye and bye
-
D Em
lift as we climb
F#m G
lift as we climb
D Bm
together undiminished
G A
together we shine
D Em
lift as we climb
F#m G
lift as we climb
D
undiminished
A
we shine
