Across The Great Divide


by Kate Wolf
	I've been walkin' in my sleep
	Countin' troubles 'stead of countin' sheep
	Where the years went I can't say
	I just turned around and they've gone away

	A - - - / A - D - / A - - - / - - - > / F#m - - - /     / D - - - /    /
	A - - - / - - -  > / F#m - - - /    / D - - - / E - - - / A - - - /     //

	I've been siftin' through the layers
	Of dusty books and faded papers
	They tell a story I used to know
	And it was one that happened so long ago

 C:	It's gone away in yesterday
	Now I find myself on the mountainside
	Where the rivers change direction
	Across the Great Divide

	A - - - / A - D - / A - - - / - - -  > / F#m - - - /     / D - - - /     /
	A - G#m - / F#m - - - / D - E - / A - - - /     //

	Now, I heard the owl a-callin'
	Softly as the night was fallin'
	With a question and I replied
	But he's gone across the borderline

 C:	He's gone away in yesterday
	Now I find myself on the mountainside
	Where the rivers change direction
	Across the Great Divide

	(Solo on verse)

	The finest hour that I have seen
	Is the one that comes between
	The edge of night and the break of day
	It's when the darkness rolls away

 C:	And it's gone away in yesterday
	Now I find myself on the mountainside
	Where the rivers change direction
	Across the Great Divide

 C:	And it's gone away in yesterday
	Now I find myself on the mountainside
	It's where the rivers change direction
	Across the Great Divide
