David Francey - Promised Land


CAPO: 2nd Fret



INTRO: C  

               F      C      G
On a bright September day in fall 
   F                      C
We sailed away from Montreal
            F       C       G
And I hung upon the railing high
      F                          C
And I waved the world I knew goodbye
G                 F         C   
Sailed from home across the sea
    G               F        C
The other side, the heart of me
           F         C        G
And I just stood and waved my hand
   F                        C
In my world in the promised land


                F      C               G
And we ran like hares, ran through the close
F                     C
Doon tae the burn, in spate it rose
                F             C       G
We stood on the bridge by the bowling green
F                           C
laughed our words in steady streams
    G             F         C   
The arc of stone across the river
      G              F       C
And a moment hung in time forever
        F         C            G
And the sun shone on us, every man
   F                        C
In my world in the promised land


INSTRUMENTAL: C  F  C  G  F  C  F  C  G  F  C
              G  F  C  G  F  C  F  C  G  F  C


           F           C      G
Night came black, with death adorning
F                          C
Grampa's dead and Granny's mourning
             F       C        G
Brithers and sisters all came doon 
F                                C
Sat there greeting in the living room
    G            F        C   
The emptiness of what was left 
   G                 F        C   
We sat there in that house of death
                F         C         G
And we hung our heads and wrung our hands
   F                        C
In my world in the promised land


           F       C     G
So I never saw him lying there
  F                          C
I never climbed the scaffold stair
          F       C     G
My father left it up to me
   F                       C
To choose to see or not to see
    G                 F     C   
But death's a road we walk alone 
      G               F       C   
But I read the words upon the stone
             F          C       G
He's sitting still, his pipe in hand
   F                        C
In my world in the promised land
                 F          C       G
Oh, he's sitting still, his pipe in hand
       F                        C
Oh, in my world in the promised land
