   [Intro]
A   A   A   A


   [Verse 1]
A
A man he loves a woman
                    D            Dsus4 D
They marry and they raise a child
A                              D
That's the way the whole world over
                     A         Asus4
But there's too much life involved
A
Now looking out the window
                       D         Dsus4 D
At the skies that keep closing in
A                                 A7
And deep down in their heart they know
A
The void will never fill


   [Verse 2]
A
Photographs and memories
                   D            Dsus4 D
That never fade as time moves on
E7                 E
And he becomes the hunter
              A               Asus4
And questions burn like the sun
A
And for the pilgrim
                   D            Dsus4 D
The road is always long and sore
E                       A    A7
But for the love of the father
A
You walk it all and so much more


   [Chorus]
A       D                   A
And the leaving takes you home
          D      A       E
There you dare belief to walk alone
          F#m      C#m          D
Where you laid her name down in stone
        E
For the love of Alison


   [Bridge]
F#m    E   F#m   E


   [Verse 3]
A
There's a road that reaches India
                         D                Dsus4 D
And it pulled her to the roof of the world
A                                   D
Through the temples of the East she walked
              A         Asus4
A bright eyed Christian girl
A
There the light that shone around her
                   D          Dsus4 D
It vanished in the morning air
A                    A7
Where destiny and purpose
A
Together walk their dark and hidden ways


   [Chorus]
A       D                   A
And the leaving takes you home
          D      A       E
There you dare belief to stand alone
          F#m      C#m          D
Where you laid her name down in stone
        E
For the love of Alison


   [Chorus]
A       D                     A
And the hills are crowned in snow
         D         A         E
You face the place of winter till the thaw
            F#m      C#m              D
And through that darkness we all must walk
        E              E7
For the love of Alison


    [Instrumental]

   [Bridge]
D                 A  E          C#m
Is this the cross we have to bear
                 D              F#m
Is this the love we have to share

E   F#m   E


   [Verse 4]
A
Now the autumn leaves are falling
                            D                Dsus4 D
From the trees and from the rest of our years
E7                E
And all of us are searching
            A                 Asus4
For a light that's disappeared
A
We take refuge in our weakness
                   D       Dsus4 D
Unable to confront the fear
E                          A    A7
That keeps a pilgrim still believing
A
Swimming upstream in a river of his tears


   [Instrumental]
A   D    A
D   A    E
F#m C#m  D
E   E7


   [Chorus]
A       D                   A
And the leaving takes you home
          D      A       E
There you dare belief to walk alone
          F#m      C#m          D
Where you laid her name down in stone
        E
For the love of Alison


    [Chorus]
A       D                     A
And the hills are crowned in snow
         D         A         E
You face the place of winter till the thaw
            F#m      C#m              D
And through that darkness we all must walk
        E              E7
For the love of Alison
        E
For the love of Alison


   [Outro]
