City On The Hill Capo 3

[Intro] 
Bm D A G Bm D A G

[VERSE 1]
       Bm                      D
Did you hear of the city on the hill?
    A                  G
Said one old man to the other
              Bm                             D
It once shined bright and it would be shining still
        A                           G              Bm D A
But they all started turning on each other          Mmmmmmm


[VERSE 2]
           Bm                             D
You see the poets thought the dancers were shallow
       A                               G
And the soldiers thought the poets were weak
       Bm                           D
And the elders saw the young ones as foolish
       A                        G
And the rich man never heard the poor man speak


[CHORUS] 
          G            D
And one by one they ran away
          A                         Em
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
       G              D                     A
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill
             Bm    D A G
The city on a hill


[VERSE 3]
        Bm                     D
Each one thought that they knew better
              A            G
But there were different by design
          Bm                D
Instead of standing strong together
              A             G
They let their differences divide


[CHORUS]
          G             D
And one by one they ran away
          A                         Em
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
       G              D                     A
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill
            Bm    D A
The city on a hill
       Em                 Bm    D A
And the world is searchin' still


[BRIDGE 1]
              G
But it was the rhythm of the dancers that gave the poets life
          D                                 A
It was the spirit of the poets that gave the soldiers strength to fight
          G                                  Bm
It was the fire of the young ones, it was the wisdom of the old
          A                                          Bm D A G Bm D A
It was the story of the poor man that needed be told


[Bridge 2]
              G
But it was the rhythm of the dancers that gave the poets life
          D                                 A
It was the spirit of the poets that gave the soldiers strength to fight
          G                                  Bm
It was the fire of the young ones, it was the wisdom of the old
          A                                          Bm D A G Bm D A
It was the story of the poor man that needed be told


[CHORUS]
      G                D
One by one, will we run away?
        A                         Em
With our made up minds to leave it all behind
      G               D                     A
As the light begins to fade in the city on a hill?
             Bm    D
The city on a hill

    A                G                Bm     D
Come home…….. And the Father's calling still
    A                G           Bm    D
Come home……... To the city on the hill
    A
Come home
