Capo 2

Am                                                C
In the spring of 1856 with the snow still on the ground
    D/F#             Am          C          D/F#     Am
Two little boys were lost in the mountains above the town
Am                                                C
The father went out hunting the boys had stayed behind
      D/F#          Am                 C        D/F#     Am     Em    Am
While mother tended to her chores they wandered from her side

Am                                                  C
The two had gone to follow him and lost their way instead
    D/F#             Am                 C        D/F#      Am
By dusk the boys had not been found and fear had turned to dread
Am                                              C
200 men had gathered there to comb the mountain side
    D/F#                    Am              C            D/F#    Am
The fires were built on the highest peak in hopes they'd see the light

Chorus 1
   D                   Am
Oh mommy and daddy why can't you hear our cries
                        C               Am
The day is almost over, soon it will be night
D                                Am                 Em
We're so cold and hungry and our feet are tired and sore
   F              C           C        Em    Am    Em   Am
We promise not to stray again from our cabin door

Am                                                       C
Now Jacob Diverd woke one night from a strange and eerie dream
    D/F#        Am                     C        D/F#    Am
He saw a path between two hills near a dark and swollen stream
Am                                                      C
He told his wife he saw the boys huddled close beside a log
    D/F#                Am                  C      D/F#      Am 
For two more nights the dream returned this vision sent from God

Chorus 1
Am                                                         C
A thousand men had searched in vain the west side of pop's creek
    D/F#              Am                C       D/F#   Am
But Jacob's wife knew of this place and said to travel east
Am                                                  C
With a guide to take him there, Jacob came upon the scene
    D/F#           Am               C         D/F#      Am
And found the boys cold and still beneath the old birch tree

Chorus 2
   D                     Am
Oh mommy and daddy, look past the tears you cry
                             C             Am
We're both up in Heaven now, God is by our side
D                                 Am              Em
As you lay us down to rest in the presence of the Lord
F                 C        C       Em       Am    Em   Am
Know that we will meet you here at Heaven's door
