“Zion” – Kings Kaleidoscope

[Verse 1] 
Am         C                  Fmaj7            E
     Maybe someday we’ll meet under the stars, under the stars
Am              C                    Fmaj7                     E
     Healed and home free, complete, that’s where we’ll start, that’s where we’ll start


[Chorus 1]
C#m    A      E      Amaj7   C#m         A    E     Amaj7
    Zion, I’m coming soon to where you are
C#m      A       E           Amaj7       C#m        A     E     Amaj7
    Till then my love’s with you, though worlds apart


[Verse 2]
C#m             E               Amaj7              G#
     This will take much longer than I’ve planned, than I’ve planned
C#m             E                    Amaj7            G#
     But I will wait to see you, and hold your hands, hold your hands


[Chorus 2]
Fm     C#     G#     C#maj7  Fm           C#     G#     C#maj7
    Zion, I’m coming soon to where you are

Fm       C#      G#          C#maj7      Fm         C#    G#   C#maj7
    Till then my love’s with you, though worlds apart


[Verse 3]
Fm           G#                C#maj7           C
     Waiting each day God will comfort my soul, comfort my soul
Fm           G#                 C#maj7             C
     You are home now, healthy, safe in his fold, safe in his fold

[Chorus 3]
Am    F       C      Fmaj7   Am          F    C    Fmaj7
    Zion, I’m coming soon to where you are
Am       F       C           Fmaj7       Am         F    C    Fmaj7
    Till then my love’s with you, though worlds apart
Am    F        C         Fmaj7     Am         F    C     Fmaj7
   Beyond this storm’s a brilliant sky of stars
Am      F      C      Fmaj7     Am    F    C    Fmaj7
   I’ll follow you
Am      F      C      Fmaj7     Am    F    C    Fmaj7    Am
   I’ll follow you

[End]

The artist plays with his guitar tuned down a half step with a capo on the 1st fret to start with, 
to be playing in C. After he plays the first verse and chorus, he moves the capo up to the 5th fret 
but repeats the first verse and chorus chord forms. With Capo 5 they are now in E. The last verse 
and chorus he moves the capo up to the 9th fret and plays the first verse and chorus chords again, but in
capo 9 they are in G#. This works great if your guitar has a cutout, because playing the C#m at the beginning 
of the chorus in capo 9 isn’t a problem. If your guitar (like mine) doesn’t have a cutout, you can’t really 
do that. So these are the chords in open, standard tuning with no capo changes. 

If you want to use the capo method like the original artist, tune down half a step and set it at capo 1 
for the first verse and chorus set, then move it up to 5 and then 9 after each chorus. Keep playing all chords
in the pattern of the first verse and chorus each time.

Feel free to contact me with questions.

This is a musically interesting and incredibly beautiful song written about the artist's stillborn son.
