Over the Hills and Far Away

	  		Em                             D 
They came for him one winter's night. 
Em                    D 
Arrested, he was bound. 
Em                          	 D 
They said there'd been a robbery, 
C	   D	    Em 
his pistol had been found.  
 

Em		      G 
They marched him to the station house, 
Em	         D 
he waited for the dawn. 
Em	                       G 
And as they led him to the dock, 
D			Em 
he knew that he'd been wronged. 
C	D         Em            D
"You stand accused of robbery," 
G            D          Em      D 
he heard the bailiff say. 
C         D        Em        D 
He knew without an alibi, 
G                  D                 Bm             D 
tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom --  
 
 
Em        G	            D	     Em 
Over the hills and far away, 
    D	 G	 C	 D 
for ten long years he'll count the days. 
Em        G	             D	         Em 
Over the mountains and the seas, 
   D	 G        C               D 
a prisoner's life for him there'll be.  
 
Em		G 
He knew that it would cost him dear, 
Em	            D 
but yet he dare not say. 
Em		      G 
Just where he'd been that fateful night, 
D	        Em 
a secret it must stay. 
C	D         Em            D
He had to fight back tears of rage. 
G            D          Em      D 
His heart beat like a drum. 
C           D          Em              D 
For with the wife of his best friend, 
G              D               Bm          D 
he spent his final night of freedom --  

 
Em        G	            D	     Em 
Over the hills and far away, 
    D	 G	 C	 D 
for ten long years he'll count the days. 
Em           G	     D	    Em 
Far from the mountains and the seas, 
   D	 G        C               D 
a prisoner's life for him there'll be.  
Em        G	            D	     Em D 
Over the hills and far away, 
Em 
Over the hills and, 
 
over the hills and, 
D 
over the hills and far away.  
 
 
Solo 
 
C	D         Em            D
Each night within his prison cell, 
G            D          Em      D 
he looks out through the bars. 
C         D        Em        D 
He reads the letters that she wrote. 
G                  D                 Bm             D 
One day he'll know the taste of freedom --  
 

Em        G	          D	     Em 
Over the hills and far away, 
      D	   G        C          D 
she prays he will return one day. 
Em	        G     D             Em 
As sure as the rivers reach the seas, 
        D	 G      C              D 
back in his arms again she'll be.
