[ INTRO ]
Cm  Bb  Eb/G  Ab


[ VERSE 1 ]

        Cm        Bb              Eb/G    Ab
She was reading a book that she'd already read,
Eb               Bb
Just to pass the time.
        Cm            Bb            Eb/G  Ab
He just sat there and stared at the TV    set,
Eb                 Bb
Like he was barely alive.
Fm             Eb/G
When the local news was over,
Ab                   Bb
They would climb the stairs.
Fm                Eb/G
Crawl in bed underneath the covers,
Ab                   Bbsus  Bb
Like neither one was there.


[ CHORUS ]

          Ab    Bb   Eb   Ab        Bb      Eb
And its a long, long way across the great divide.
    Ab         Bb        Cm
The songs that they once sang, 
    Ab           Bb
Now echo far and wide.
           Ab    Bb  Eb           Ab        Bb        Eb
They could still get back all the love that they have lost.
    Ab   Bb      Cm               Bbsus   Bb
But only if they both will reach across.
             Ab         Eb/G             Fm
'Cause its a long, long way to the other side,
Bbsus  Bb               Cm  Bb  Eb/G  Ab
       Of the great divide.


[ VERSE 2 ]

       Cm        Bb           Eb/G     Ab
He was up in the attic on the 4th of July,
Eb                         Bb
As they flew a flag in the yard.
        Cm             Bb            Eb/G     Ab
When he found some old roses she had long ago dried,
Eb                   Bb
Before they drifted apart.
Fm                    Eb/G
And how the years had slipped right by them,
Ab             Bb
He didn't understand.
Fm                   Eb/G
He carried a petal into the kitchen,
Ab                      Bbsus  Bb
And he placed it in her hand. 


[ CHORUS ]

          Ab    Bb   Eb   Ab        Bb      Eb
And its a long, long way across the great divide.
    Ab         Bb        Cm
The songs that they once sang, 
    Ab           Bb
Now echo far and wide.
           Ab    Bb  Eb           Ab        Bb        Eb
They could still get back all the love that they have lost.
    Ab   Bb      Cm               Bbsus   Bb
But only if they both will reach across.
             Ab         Eb/G             Fm
'Cause its a long, long way to the other side,
Bbsus  Bb               Cm  Bb  Eb/G  Abmaj7
       Of the great divide.
