VERSE 1
 
  Eb                Eb9               Ab                Eb
I hung out with the old folks, in the hope that I'd get wise.
 
      Gm                   Cm               F       Bb
I was trying to bridge the gap, between the great divide.
 
        Eb        Eb9              Ab               Eb
Hung on every recollection, in the theatre of their eyes
 
        Gm             Cm           F                 Bb
Picking up on this and that, in the few that still survive.
 
 
CHORUS
 
        Eb
Call em up
 
        Cm
Dust em off
 
D      Gm
Let em shine
 
    Ab              Eb                F              Bb
The ones who hold onto the ones, they had to leave behind
 
           Eb               Cm
Those that flew, those that fell,
 
    D                Gm
The ones that had to stay,
 
          Ab            Eb
Beneath a little wooden cross
 
 Bb     Eb
Oceans away
 
 
REPEAT INTRO
 
 
VERSE 2
 
     Eb                 Eb9           Ab                 Eb
They bend like trees in winter, these shuffling old gray lions
 
       Gm                  Cm               F            Bb
Though snow white start to gather, like the belt around Orion.
 
       Eb             Eb9               Ab         Eb
Just a touch of faded lightning, of the powerful design,
 
       Gm         Cm            F              Bb
Of the generation gathered, for maybe the last time.
 
 
REPEAT CHORUS
 
 
BRIDGE
 
F#                                              Ab                                         Bbm
Oceans away where the green grass sways and the cool wind blows across the shadow of their graves.
 
F#                                     Ab
shoulder to shoulder, back in the day, sleeping bones to rest in Earth
 
Bbm Fsus4  Bbm
O - ceans away
 
F#  Ab     Bb
O - ceans away
 
 
CHORUS
 
        Eb
Call em up
 
        Cm
Dust em off
 
D      Gm
Let em shine
 
    Ab              Eb                F              Bb
The ones who hold onto the ones, they had to leave behind
 
           Eb               Cm
Those that flew, those that fell,
 
    D                Gm
The ones that had to stay,
 
          Ab            Eb
Beneath a little wooden cross
 
 Bb     Eb
Oceans away
 
 
REPEAT INTRO
 
 
OUTRO
 
Eb
