Somewhere Down the Road

Capo 2

A                D/A            | A    |
So much pain and know the reason why
D               Bm          | E  E7  |
Cried until the tears ran dry
A                D/A           | A     |
Nothing here can make you understand
    D                  Bm           |
The one thing that you held so dear
E/G#        A       |2/4  F#m            |
Is slipping from your hands (and you say)


4/4E  E/G# A - |2/4 F#m      
Why, why, why
    |4/4 Bsus2      |
Does it go this way
E   E/G#  A - |2/4 F#m
Why, why, why
       |4/4 Bsus2 B |
All I can say
F#m       E/G#     A  -    
Somewhere down the road
          | D              A         |
There'll be answers to the questions
F#m       E/G#     A   -
Somewhere down the road
         | D           E     |
Though we cannot see it now
Bm        E/G#     F#m  -  
Somewhere down the road
   | D                   C#7            |2/4 C#7  |
You will find mighty arms reaching for you
4/4  D        A/C#      Bm7 - |
And they will hold the answers
2/4    D/E            |
At the end of the road

Interlude:  F#m  E/G#  A - |  D  A  D/F# - | F#m  E/G#  A - |  D  A  D

A           D/A               | A      |
Yesterday I thought I'd seen it all
  D                       Bm        | E  E7  |
I thought I'd climbed the highest wall
A             D/A          | A       |
Now I see the learning never ends
    D             Bm          | E/G#     A  |
And all I know to do is keep on walking
2/4 F#m               |
Walking round the bend

Chorus 2X
