## NOTE: ~ ~ = Walk-Down from F to C ##


CAPO: 2nd Fret




[VERSE 1:]
     C           Em7         F           G
They saved their plan for my childhood
    Am            G            F       G
And soaked up the tears of the young
     Am          G            F   ~   ~ C
They saved their plans for my boy-hoy-y-hood
            Dm                 G
And to it's snug safety, I had clung


[VERSE 2:]
      C            Em7          F          G
I was learning the countryman's instinct
    Am           G            F     G
And learnt to be one with the soil
        Am           G           F  ~ ~ C
Growing wheat in the heart and ambi-i-i-tion
            Dm                           G
But growing strong from the backbreaking toil


[CHORUS:]
        F         G          C
Bounded in by the fences and feelings
       F                     G
Always wary, not free for to fly
F           C/E       F  ~ ~ C
Dreaming of further hori-i-i-zons
          Dm7          G             C
Where the hills of the west meet the sky


[VERSE 3:]
      C           Em7       F         G
I was tied to the family traditions
       Am         G          F     G
To the way things always had been
      Am              G            F   ~ ~   C
Never learnt from the birds flying sou-o-outhwards
             Dm                  G
That there's vistas I have never seen


[VERSE 4:]
          C            Em7       F        G
And I was blind to the wandering notion
    Am       G           F     G
And blind to feelings of due
  Am         G            F  ~ ~ C
I sacrificed youth for my du-u-u-ty
   Dm                   G
My freedom, I owe it to you


[CHORUS:]
        F         G          C
Bounded in by the fences and feelings
       F                     G
Always wary, not free for to fly
F           C/E       F  ~ ~ C
Dreaming of further hori-i-i-zons
          Dm7          G             Am
Where the hills of the west meet the sky
          F            G             Am
Where the hills of the west meet the sky
          F            G             C
Where the hills of the west meet the sky


[BRIDGE:]
        Bb           F             C
Oh, the hills of the west they are calling
  Bb         F           G
I follow the sun in your eyes
    Am          Am7       F
The future I'll take as I find it
   Dm                    G
My ears are deaf to your cries


[VERSE 5:]
           C           Em7        F        G
Now, where were you to sharpen my vision
      Am          G         F       G
Where were you to show me a dream
     Am          G          F   ~ ~  C
They showed me a reason for cha-a-an-ging
            Dm                        G
But so much time has gone away in the stream


[VERSE 6:]
         C          Em7         F            G
And I'll follow you down to the west woods
    Am           G         F      G
And leave all my kinfolk behind
     Am        G           F  ~ ~  C
As I take that last look behi-i-nd me
         Dm                     G
What's before me, will be in my mind


[CHORUS:]
        F         G          C
Bounded in by the fences and feelings
       F                     G
Always wary, not free for to fly
F           C/E       F  ~ ~ C
Dreaming of further hori-i-i-zons
          Dm7          G             Am
Where the hills of the west meet the sky
          F            G             Am
Where the hills of the west meet the sky
          F            G             C
Where the hills of the west meet the sky


[OUTRO:] C  Em  F  G  C  Em  F  G  Dm  C     Dm  C  F  G  C
         F  G  C  Em  F  G  Dm  C     F  C    G  C
