How To Play

INTRO
Bm    A
Bm    A
 
 
VERSE 1
E                                  A
  Sweetly flows the water from the mountain
E                         D      A
  Softly falls the rain upon the leaves
C#m                                 D       A
  Gently blows the breeze among the cedars
Bm         E7              A
Quietly my heart is on its knees
 
E                              A
  How could anything in all creation
E                        D     A
  Be more beautiful than all I see
C#m                           D        A
With it all my heart is not rejoicing
  Bm              E7               A
Because the one I love is not with me
 
 
INTERLUDE
Bm    A
 
 
VERSE 2
E                               A
  Somewhere in between us was a difference
E                           D       A
  Not we or all this beauty could secure
    C#m                              D       A
And I know now my heart will ache forever
      Bm             E7             A
And I wonder if this mountain can endure
 
 
CHORUS
       A D             A
So I'm leaving for the flatlands
      D            A        E
Goin' back - where I was conceived
      A              D              A
Goin' back - where nobody knows the difference
     D                  E            A
This mountain knows too much - about me
 
 
INTERLUDE
Bm    A
Bm    A
 
 
VERSE 3
E                                  A
  I thought it was written - up in heaven
     E                        D      A
That you would be with me and I with you
C#m                                  D           A
Sun and moon and stars must feel the difference
        Bm                E7                   A
They're wishin' there was something they could do
 
 
CHORUS
       A D             A
So I'm leaving for the flatlands
      D            A        E
Goin' back - where I was conceived
      A              D              A
Goin' back - where nobody knows the difference
     D                  E            A
This mountain knows too much - about me
 
 
OUTRO
     D                  E            A
This mountain knows too much - about me
Bm    A
