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”
    C                       F               C                   Em
It came running through the earth where the pine and tall grass grew

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

Still, I’m afraid of what I am, save me from my soul

You can’t make me whole, still I find my voice and say

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
