Transcription from "Bruce Cockburn: All the Diamonds", published by OFC
        Publications, P.O. Box 4061, Station E, Ottawa, Ontario,
        Canada  K1S 5B1

Drop D Tuning (tune bass string down from E to D. )
Capo 2nd fret if you want to play along with Bruce.

The trick here is to finger the bass notes with your thumb.

Putting it together:

[Intro] D D G6 G6 D D G6 G6

[Verse 1]
D                 D
Sun's up, uh huh, looks okay
    G6                    G6
The world survives into another day
        D                       D
And I'm thinking 'bout eternity
           G6            G6            D  D  G6  G6
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me
D                       D
Had another dream about lions at the door
     G6                                  G6
They weren't half as fright'ning as they were before
        D                       D
But I'm thinking 'bout eternity
           G6            G6            D  D  G6  G6
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

[Verse 2]
D                    D
Walls windows trees, waves coming through
G6               G6
You be in me and I'll be in you
  D                   D
Together in eternity
           G6            G6            D  D  G6  G6
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me
D                          D
Up among the firs where it smells so sweet
   G6                           G6
Or down in the valley where the river used to be
         D                 D
I got my mind on eternity
           G6            G6
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

[Chorus]
        Em7                          Em7
And I'm wondering where the lions are
    Dadd9                        Dadd9
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Em7                          Em7
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Dadd9                        Dadd9
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Em7                          Em7
I'm wondering where the lions are,   m-hm
Dadd9                        Dadd9       Em7 Em7     Dadd9 Dadd9
wondering where the lions are       aah          aah

[Verse 3]
D                       D
Huge orange flying boat rises off a lake
G6                            G6
Thousand year old petroglyphs doing a double take
           D                   D
Pointing a finger at eternity
    G6                            G6       D  D  G6  G6
I'm sitting in the middle of this ecstasy
D                           D
Young men marching, helmets shining in the sun
G6                            G6                    D
Polished and precise like the brain behind the gun (should be!)
            D
They got me thinking 'bout eternity
           G6            G6          D  D  G6  G6
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

[Chorus]
        Em7                          Em7
And I'm wondering where the lions are
    Dadd9                        Dadd9
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Em7                          Em7
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Dadd9                        Dadd9
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Em7                          Em7
I'm wondering where the lions are,   m-hm
Dadd9                        Dadd9       Em7 Em7     Dadd9 Dadd9
wondering where the lions are       aah          aah

[Verse 4]
D                            D
Freighters on the nod on the surface of the bay
G6                              G6         D
One of these days they're gonna sail away
      D
Gonna sail into eternity
           G6            G6          D  D  G6  G6
Some kinda ecstasy got a hold on me

[Chorus]
        Em7                          Em7
And I'm wondering where the lions are
    Dadd9                        Dadd9
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Em7                          Em7
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Dadd9                        Dadd9
I'm wondering where the lions are
    Em7                          Em7
I'm wondering where the lions are,   m-hm
Dadd9                        Dadd9       Em7 Em7     Dadd9 Dadd9
wondering where the lions are       aah          aah
