Billy Joel
Two Thousand Years

From The River of Dreams

           F
In the beginning
                Bb           C
there was the cold and the night
                Gm
Prophets and angels
             C             F
gave us the fire and the light
            Dm
Man was triumphant
                A dim          Bb  B dim
Armed with the faith and the will
                 Bb     F            C
That even the darkest ages couldn't kill

            F
Too many kingdoms
          Bb            C
Too many flags on the field
           Gm
So many battles
          C             F
So many wounds to be healed
            Dm
Time is relentless
          Adim     Bb  Bdim
Only true love perseveres
             F             Bb           Dm
It's been a long time and now I'm with you
       C             F
After two thousand years

              F
This is our moment
                Bb         C
Here at the crossroads of time
               Gm
We hope our children
            C              F
Carry our dreams down the line
                Dm
they are the vintage
              A dim         Bb  Bdim
What kind of life will they live?
            Bb          F              C
Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?

              F
Sometimes I wonder
           Bb          C
Why are we so blind to Fate?
            Gm
Without compassion
	     C         F
there can be no end to hate
     	    Dm
No end to sorrow
 	      Adim         Bb  Bdim
caused by the same endless fears
              Bb        F	       Dm
Why can’t we learn from all we’ve been through
          C	          F
after two thousand years?

		 F
There will be miracles
	   Bb 	       C
after the last war is won
	     Gm
Science and poetry
	    C            F
Rule in the new world to come
	       Dm
Prophets and angels
	    dim      Bb Bdim
gave us the power to see
	   Bb 	F	          C
what an amazing future there will be

	      F
And in the evening
	   Bb 	        C
after the fire and the light
		Gm
One thing is certain
	    C	          F
nothing can hold back the night
	    Dm
Time is relentless
	   Adim   Bb  Bdim
and as the past disappears
	     F        Bb         Dm
We’re on the verge of all things new
       C       Bb     F
We are two thousand years

Outro

F-Bb-C-F

Notes: I find that the F and Bb in the second-to-last line of each stanza is
I placed them where I thought they sounded best, but they are subjective. Also, at the 
of
stanza, Joel goes up the bass from F to Bb (starting at F to G etc.) and when the bass 
to Bb the chord changes. That’s easier to understand on piano
