From A Distance


by Julie Gold
I:	( C - > - /    / F - - - / G - - - //) (2x)

From a distance the world looks blue and green
And the snow capped mountains white
From a distance the ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight

C - - - / F - - - / G - - - / C - - - / F - - - / G - - - / C - > - /    // (2x)

C1:	From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes thru the land
It's the voice of hope
It's the voice of peace
It's the voice of every man

F - - - / G - - - / Am - - - /   / F - - - / C/E - - - / G - - - /    /
       [1 & Tag]
F - - - / C - - - /  x2  / F - - - / G - - - // ( C - > - /    / F - - - / G - - - // )

From a distance we all have enough
And no one is in need
There are no guns, no bombs, no diseases
No hungry mouths to feed

C2:	From a distance we are instruments
Marching in a common band
Playing songs of hope
Playing songs of peace
They’re the songs of every man
[2]
( C - - - /   //)

 B:	God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us, from a distance

F - - - / G - - - / C - - - / Am - - - / F - - - / G - - - / C - > - / - - - //
( C - - - / C/E - - - / F - - - / G - - - /  x4  / C - > - /    / F - - - / G - - - //)

From a distance you look like my friend
Even though we are at war
From a distance I can't comprehend
What all this war is for

C3:	From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes thru the land
It's the hope of hopes
It's the love of loves
It's the heart of every man
[3]
( Am - - - /   //)

 T:	It's the hope of hopes
It's the love of loves
It's the heart of every man
