Cmaj7             Em7
So hard to answer future's riddle
      Fmaj7           F6       Fmaj7   F6
When ahead is seeming so far behind
Cmaj7              Em7
So hard to laugh a child-like giggle
         Fmaj7          F6         Fmaj7   F6
When the tears start to torture my mind
G                   Dm7
So hard to shed the life of before
   F7     F7/C     F7        F7/C
To let my soul automatically soar

      C               F                F7
But I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
C                  F            F9
Knock down all the roadblocks a-stumbling me
C                 Dm7               F/D#       F9  F6/9  F7  F7/C
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down

Cmaj7                Em7
Sew up the wounds of evolution
        Fmaj7         F6        Fmaj7   F6
And the now starts to get in my way
Cmaj7                Em7
So what if life's a revelation
       Fmaj7          F6     Fmaj7   F6
If the mind speaks of only today
   G                 Dm7
So real, the pain of growing in soul
   F7       F7/C    F7      F7/C
Of climbing up to reality's goal


But I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roaddblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down

F                   Dm7
Long promised road, trail starts at dawn
        Em7                Am      Asus   Am  Am9
Carries on to the season's ending
F                   Dm7
Long promised road, flows to the source, 
       Em7          Am     Asus   Am     Em7/H
gentle force, never ending, never ending

   Cmaj7   Em7
So hard to lift the jeweled sceptre
         Fmaj7          F6         Fmaj7   F6
When the weight turns a smile to a frown
   Cmaj7   Em7
So hard to drink of passion nectar
         Fmaj7           F6         Fmaj7   F6
When the taste of life's holding me down
   G                 Dm7
So hard to plant the seed of reform
   F7     F7/C        F7          F7/C
To set my sights on defeating the storm

So I hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roadblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down

Am G6  Em7 F  (C H)
Am G6  F   F F7 F6

C
Hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roadblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down

Oh, yeah-eah-eah-eah

Hit hard at the battle that's confronting me, yeah
Knock down all the roadblocks a-stumbling me
Throw off all the shackles that are binding me down
F7
I'd love to see you
C
I'd love to see you
F
I'd love to see you
C
I'd love to see you
F
I'd love to see you
C
I'd love to see you
