[Verse 1]

Cm            Cm7           Ab                              
   Beyond the horizon of the place we lived when we were young
Cm              Cm7                 Ab
   In a world of magnets and miracles
Cm                      Cm7              Ab
   Our thoughts strayed constantly and without boundary
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   The ringing of the division bell had begun

Cm                Ab       G7sus4              G       G7/Bb
   Along the long road and on down the causeway
Cm               Ab                G7sus4    G
   Do they still meet there by the cut

[Verse 2]

Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   There was a ragged band who followed in our footsteps
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Running before times took our dreams away
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Leaving the myriad small creatures trying to tie us to the ground
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   To a life consumed by slow decay


[Chorus 1]

Ab                 Cm    Gm   Ab   Bb
   The grass was greener
                 Cm   Eb   Fm   Ab
The light was brighter
                 Cm   Gm   Ab   Bb
When friends surrounded
                 Cm    Eb   Fm
The nights of wonder


[Verse 3]

Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Looking beyond the embers of bridges glowing behind us
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab 
   To a glimpse of how green it was on the other side
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Steps taken forwards but sleepwalking back again
Cm                   Cm7               Ab
   Dragged by the force of some inner tide


Cm               Ab          G7sus4         G      G/Bb
   At a higher altitude with flag unfurled
Cm                 Ab                   G7sus4      G    
   We reached the dizzy heights of that dreamed of world

[Verse 4]

Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Encumbered forever by desire and ambition
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
  There's a hunger still unsatisfied
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Our weary eyes still stray to the horizon
Cm                   Cm7                 Ab
   Go down this road I've been so many times


[Chorus 2]

Ab                  Cm    Gm   Ab   Bb
   The grass was greener
                 Cm   Eb   Fm   Ab
The light was brighter
                 Cm    Gm   Ab   Bb
The taste was sweeter
                 Cm   Eb   Fm   Ab
The nights of wonder
                 Cm    Gm   Ab   Bb
With friends surrounded
                 Cm   Eb   Fm   Ab
The dawn mist glowing
             Cm    Gm   Ab   Bb
The water flowing
              Cm   Eb   Fm   Ab
The endless river

Forever and ever...

(Epic Lap steel solo)

||Cm    Gm   Ab   Bb
  Cm    Eb   Fm   Ab:|| 
(repeat behind the solo)

i hear this part a bit differently:

Cm Ab Gsus4 G Bb
"Along the long road and on down the causeway
Cm Ab Gsus4 G
Do they still meet there by the cut."

Let me know what do you think.

Don't know why it missed the spacing, I'll try again

Ab/C Bb/Ab G7sus4 G7
Along the long road and on down the causeway
Ab/C Bb/Ab G7sus4 G
Do they still meet there by the cut

I think I took these from sheet music
