Thoroughfare Gap chords
Stephen Stills

F  F  F  G   F  F  F  G  

F           F           F
Sometimes I consider my pace,
      G           F               F
I'm reminded of a train gathering speed,
        F            G
for the climb to the pass

         F         F          F
In whose shadow it all really lies,
        G     F       F
a small metal wagon approaching,
    F                      G
the ever present ascending rise;
                F        F F G 
to the southern mountains

F           F           F
Reeling and snaking and leaping,
   G             F             F
it seems like it wants to come loose,
         F            G
from its path cast in iron

        F     F         F
But she can't slow down now,
G      F         F
as the earth has presented,
  F            F
a new crest to reach
        F        G
without barely a rest;
         F        F F G 
from the last one

        F           F           F
And you wonder just what lies beyond,
G             F            F
though you've been there before,
                     F              G
and forget about the effort and the strain

F        F
Always ascending,
     F           G
each yard adds a mile,
       F            F
to the never-ending pull,
       F          G
of the steepening grade;
         F       F F G F F F G
that's before you

  F         F         F         G
D valley, D forest, D desert, D stream,
        F         F
with an oversized bridge,
        F               G
for the trickle there beneath

      F          F
You remember the torrent,
   F         G
it turned to last spring,
         F             F
from the snows melting fast
        F          G
and the river it became;
       F     F  F  G
in the summer

   F          F
Perhaps it is ruined,
       F             G
from a fire that has scorched it,
   F          F
so badly that nothing
     F            G
will grow without rain

   F             F
To wash away the blackened soil,
    F            G            F
now useless till called upon again,
     F         F           G
in a future as twisted and far away;
                     F       F F G
as the next range of mountains

   F          F          F
So take it as far as you see
and beyond,
     F              F
with eyes you don't use enough,
F         G
gather up strength

   F            F
As Thoroughfare Gap,
      F           G
will await you forever,
       F          F
you're seeking to get there
    F      G
for even before;
it's no matter;
no distance;
         F   F F Csus4 F
it's the ride
