Promised Land

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		


nd Fret 



Intro: C   

               F      C      G 
On a bright September day in fall  
   F                      C 
We sailed away from Montreal 
            F       C       G 
And I hung upon the railing high 
      F                          C 
And I waved the world I knew goodbye 
G                 F         C    
Sailed from home across the sea 
    G               F        C 
The other side, the heart of me 
           F         C        G 
And I just stood and waved my hand 
   F                        C 
In my world in the promised land 


                F      C               G 
And we ran like hares, ran through the close 
F                     C 
Doon tae the burn, in spate it rose 
                F             C       G 
We stood on the bridge by the bowling green 
F                           C 
laughed our words in steady streams 
    G             F         C    
The arc of stone across the river 
      G              F       C 
And a moment hung in time forever 
        F         C            G 
And the sun shone on us, every man 
   F                        C 
In my world in the promised land 


Instrumental: C  F  C  G  F  C  F  C  G  F  C 
              G  F  C  G  F  C  F  C  G  F  C 


           F           C      G 
Night came black, with death adorning 
F                          C 
Grampa's dead and Granny's mourning 
             F       C        G 
Brithers and sisters all came doon  
F                                C 
Sat there greeting in the living room 
    G            F        C    
The emptiness of what was left  
   G                 F        C    
We sat there in that house of death 
                F         C         G 
And we hung our heads and wrung our hands 
   F                        C 
In my world in the promised land 


           F       C     G 
So I never saw him lying there 
  F                          C 
I never climbed the scaffold stair 
          F       C     G 
My father left it up to me 
   F                       C 
To choose to see or not to see 
    G                 F     C    
But death's a road we walk alone  
      G               F       C    
But I read the words upon the stone 
             F          C       G 
He's sitting still, his pipe in hand 
   F                        C 
In my world in the promised land 
                 F          C       G 
Oh, he's sitting still, his pipe in hand 
       F                        C 
Oh, in my world in the promised land
