Notes:  I DIG THIS TUNE.  The 4/4 is slow.  This tune is in D.  I’m using no capo and
in D, as the haunting perfect fith works well in first position D, although I don’t know
the lead (Todd) is playing capo’d or not.  I will take care of soloing with a few 
   Also, my instincts really want to play a G, or something ‘G-ish’ within the first two
of the verse.  I think the Bassist is tricking our ear.  Seems we should keep it on D.  
drums and auxiliary percussion are awesome for this tune (Not too loud, though)  Accents 
Mandolin can be awesome.

D                       G
Oh Lord to see a light
D
But fail in strength to follow
G                       C         G          D
Sometimes it’s hard to let it go
D               G
Oh Lord to fail in heart
D
Each day grow more hollow
G                  C              G               D
Sometimes I just don’t wanna know.

G                                         D
But the road that led me here
G                                D
Has begun to disappear
G                    C         G             D
Sometimes I wonder where I am.

Oh Lord to hear a voice
But let it fade and wallow
Sometimes it’s hard to let it go.
Oh Lord to find the words
But keep them in and swallow
One day the top is gonna blow

(Chorus)
But the road that left me here
Has begun to disappear
Sometimes I wonder who I am.

(drums out)
Oh Lord to stumble by
For years without knowing
Sunrise has burned my eyes again. (drums back in)

Oh Lord to crumble quiet
Watching from the silence
Sunrise has burned my eyes again.

It’s a seven-story mountain
It’s a long-long life we live
Gonna find a light and fill my heart again

It’s a seven story mountain
It’s a long long life ahead
Gotta find a voice and fill my throat again
