Judy Collins - Big Sur


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
G

[Verse 1]

I know this stretch of road, I’ve been here often
    C
The ocean rolls as far as you can see
    Em                          C
The rocky coast is misty in the sunlight
                               D
Seagulls flying low are flying free


[Verse 2]
      G
Their wings are like my memories and desires
          C
Spreading out to carry me along
    Em                         C
And I remember everything that mattered
                                     D
The times when I was weak instead of strong


[Verse 3]
  G
Today the hills are restless with desire
     C
They shudder, shaking all their blossoms free
    Em                           C
The scent of dusty pines and Eucalyptus
                                 D
Remind me of the time when I was me


[Verse 4]
  G
I left you and the rocky coast behind me
C
Found a way to live without a heart
    Em                              C
For I had left it throbbing in your keeping
                                   D
And grew another, praying it would start


[Chorus]
  C                                  Em   G
I loved you like the sunlight on the ocean
C                  D                 Am       D
Loved you like the seagulls in their flights
C                  D                   G
Loved you like the stars that shine in heaven
C                                          Am      D
Loved you through the days and through the nights


[Verse 5]
  G
I hear the saints still pray along the ocean
  C
I see the padres walking in the dawn
    Em                          C
The bells of Capistrano ring to call them
                                      D
To pray for us and sing their ancient song


[Verse 6]
       G
Please pray for me you padres of the ocean
C
Pray I find my heart among the waves
    Em                                C
For freedom’s left me panting for the bondage
                                     D
And you can see the light beyond the grave


[Verse 7]
  G
I know that stretch of road to Santa Barbara
C
Been here on and off through all these years
  Em                            C
I know that stretch of ocean as far as I can see
                                D
Today I often see it through my tears


[Chorus]
  C                                  Em   G
I loved you like the sunlight on the ocean
C                  D                 Am       D
Loved you like the seagulls in their flights
C                  D                   G
Loved you like the stars that shine in heaven
C                                          Am      D
Loved you through the days and through the nights


[Verse 7]
  G
I know this stretch of road, I’ve been here often
    C
The ocean rolls as far as you can see
    Em                          C
The rocky coast is misty in the sunlight
                               D
Seagulls flying low are flying free
