LYRICS......

There is freedom within, there is freedom without
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
There's a battle ahead, many battles are lost
But you'll never see the end of the road
While you're traveling with me

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm towing my car, there's a hole in the roof
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there's no proof
In the paper today, tales of war and of waste
But you turn right over to the TV page

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Now I'm walking again to the beat of a drum
And I'm counting the steps to the door of your heart
Only shadows ahead, barely clearing the roof
Get to know the feeling of liberation and release

Hey now, hey now
Don't dream it's over
Hey now, hey now
When the world comes in
They come, they come
To build a wall between us
We know they won't win

Well, don't let them win
Hey now, hey now
Don't let them win
Don't let them win, yeah

HOPE YOU LIKE THIS!!!!

I did this without any other reference..
because I wasn't satisfied with what I found for reference
when I first went about learning this.

I felt inspired to learn this song when my nephew Darius passed away..

I always thought this song was perfect for encouraging people who need hope.

I wanted to find comfort in learning it..
but sorry to all those who have posted so far..

it just hasn't been close enough for me...
or just lacked enough feeling.

It's a gorgeous song.

I did minor embellishments in the chorus..
a slight bit.. I just colored it a bit more..
and I definitely covered a lot more than I found
when I tabbed this out.

Just my interpretation..  I hope you find it useful..

Also... I play a lot of 12 string dropped a step in D.
I will try to make most my tabs with both..
but I want to build a network of other 12 stringers out there..
especially that appreciate the extra stuff the D tuning offers.

Any comments whatsoever.. don't hesitate.. .

I will never take offense to comments or suggestions..
I do this to try to help others and myself play better and have more fun.
I'm not saying I'm 100% right..  I think I figured that part out,
then I had some more fun with it using a few embellishments.
but I like this better than anything else I've seen.
 And if you haven't figured it out yet..

No tab.. absolutely no tab.. is 100% right.
I'm sure any artist would appreciate any new interpretation rather
than being stolen from or carbon copied anyway..
But it's actually pretty dang close.

please email if you want to...

You're right - it is a gorgeous song. I don't know if this is right - but you obviously put a lot of hard work into it, and your story was touching. Thanks and good luck...

A note to all those who prefer standard tuning: all chords and tabs in this song are fully fretted. So it's possible to try this arrangement without re-tuning. Just move everything down two frets on your guitar.

Also, for those who are as dumb as me, remember that a chord diagram like this (81010888) means eight ten etc, not eight one zero etc. I was puzzled for such a long time over the fingering for this odd ball 8-string guitar! (There's the advantage of showing those numeric diagrams in columns rather than lines.

Good job on the tab.
