Dreams never take me far away, hide me from your love, wake to call your name
         G                            
And when you slow down you’ll surely say


CHORUS
  C                   F              C                   Em
I know blowing in the wind there’s a voice that calls my name

“Don’t fear your life boy, grow and change”

Leading me always, close to you

    In the clearness of the spring, heard you calling heard you si- i- i-i   -ing
C/G                                   E                                 Am   G   F        C

BRIDGE
-See Picking-

Am                        C                              E                        Am      
   For a hundred years we wait and with every breath we take learn to bury our mistake
Am                          C                            E                     Am      (G)        
   Do I lead myself towards pain, every song we raise in vain, every fire only flame?
F                         G                           E                             Am    (G)
Raise the children now to keep, every virtue that you seek hoping one day they’ll receive
F                         G                                F                                 G
  “We are nothing but the dust that gathers down below the plain, we’ll be gone and you’ll remain”


PRE-CHORUS
E             F              C      F           C
Now what was far away draws near, teach me to belong
F            G
I no longer fear

I know blowing in the wind there’s a voice that calls my name
 G       C       F         G        C
“Don’t fear your life boy, grow and change”
    C                       F               C                   Em
It came running through the earth where the pine and tall grass grew
G   C      F       G        C
Leading me always, close to you
