[Verse]
      E5
They came for him one winter's night
E5
Arrested, he was bound
E5
They said there'd been a robbery
E5
His pistol had been found

E5                       G5
They marched him to the station house
    E5              D5
He waited till the dawn
    E5               G5
And as they led him to the dock
    D5                  E5
He knew that he'd been wronged


[Pre-Chorus]
    C     D/C        C      D/C
You stand accused of robbery
   G/D       D        G/D  D
He heard the bailiff say
   C       D/C      C  D/C
He knew without an alibi
  G/D      D           Bm         D
Tomorrow's light would mourn his freedom


[Chorus]
Em       G         D     Em
Over the hills and far away
     D         Em         C          D
For ten long years, he'll count the days
Em       G         D       Em
Over the mountains and the seas
  D           Em      C            D   E5
A prisoner's life for him there'll be


[Verse]
   E5                  G5
He knew that it would cost him dear
    E5              D5
But yet he dare not say
     E5                     G5
Just where he had been that fateful night
   D5             E5
A secret, it must stay


[Pre-Chorus]
   Cmaj7   D/C        C        D/C
He had to fight back tears of rage
    G/D         D      G/D   D
His heart beat like a drum
    Cmaj7     D/C    C         D/C
For with the wife of his best friend
      G/D       D                  D
He'd spent his final night of freedom


[Chorus]
Em       G          D   Em
Over the hills and far away
    D        G       C        D
He swears he will return one day
Em            G         D       Em
Far from the mountains and the seas
     D       G    C          D
Back in her arms again he’ll be
Em       G          D   Cmaj7       Dadd4  
Over the hills and far away_______
Cmaj7
Over the hills and, over the hills and
Dadd4                          E5    Em G Em D Em G D Em
Over the hills and far away___


[Bridge]
     Cmaj7     D/C     C      D/C
Each night within his prison cell
   G/D        D          G/D    D
He looks out through the bars
    Cmaj7     D/C    C         D/C
He reads the letters that she wrote
    G/D        D       Bm        D
One day he'll know the taste of freedom


[Chorus]
Em       G          D   Em
Over the hills and far away
    D         G      C        D
She prays he will return one day
   Em       G          D         Em
As sure as the rivers reach the seas
     D       G     C           D
Back in his arms again she'll be

F#m       A         E   F#m
Over the hills and far away
    E          A      D        E
He swears he will return one day
   F#m         A       E       F#m
As sure as the river reach the sea
     E       A       D            E
Back in his arms is where she'll be

F#m       A         E   F#m
Over the hills and far away
    E         A      D        E
She prays he will return one day
   F#m          A       E        F#m
As sure as the rivers reach the seas
     E       A       D          E
Back in her arms is where he'll be

F#m          A     E  F#m
Over the hills___
E        A         A     E
Over the hills and far away
