"Before This World"(2015)
Submitted by ClassicalfreaK

INTRO
Dm Bb C

F Bb       C       F/A      Bb      C
Before this world was as we know it now
F    Gm             Dm       Bb        C
Before the land and sea were formed at all
F    F9             Bb        Gm       C
Before the stars were made to burn and shine
Dm     Gm9         Bb        C   F/C C
Little love of mine, darling one

F Bb    C         F/A   Bb       C
Who can pretend to understand at all
F  Dm             Gm       Bb      C
No one can both inside and outside be
F  F9           Bb           Gm       C
Who can suppose he knows the way this goes
Dm   Gm     Bb    Gm7      C F/C C
 oh, little lamb, never mind

F Bb C            F/A     Bb    C
So let us love and let us not delay
F    Gm          Bb          Gm7   C
The world is old and it will never last
F   F9              Bb      Gm7    C
Our share of joy is in this moment past
Dm       Gm                F/A Bb Gm    C  F/C C
Will you come away, (come away)    come away

F  Bb C          F/A Bb C
Fall into Jesus baby    child
F      Dm             Gm        Bb          C
Give up the love that takes and breaks your heart
F   F9               Bb       Gm7       C
Let go the weight of all that holds you here
Dm     Gm                     F/A Bb Gm      C F/C C
Little love of mine, (love of mine) darling one

Oh the jolly springtime
                 C        D
Oh, in the merry month of May
G            C
Oh the heavenly hours
CM7    D          G
Oh the come again day
G
Oh the jolly springtime
             C        D
In the merry month of May
G            C
Oh the heavenly hours
CM7    D          G
Oh the come again day

Em      D/F#    G
Let the day run long
G/B     CM7       D
Let the river run high
G                 C
That tomorrow may live
        D         G
So must yesterday die

Em      D/F#         G
Let the resin risin’ up in the tree
G/B      CM7        D
Make the green leaf bud
    G7           G7/B        C
The bird and the bee and the fish in the sea
C          D     G
Feeling it in my blood

G
Oh the jolly springtime
             C        D
In the merry month of May
G            C
Oh the heavenly hours
CM7    D          G
Oh the come again day

Em      D/F#       G
Yes the winter was bitter and long
       CM7          D
So the spring’ll be sweet
G                 C
Come along with a rhythm and a song
C     D        G
Watch creation repeat
Em    D/F#      G
Thin, thin, the moment is thin
        CM7        D
Ever so narrow the now
G         G7/B         C
Everybody say, "got to live in today,"
CM7     D         G
Don’t nobody know how

G
Oh the jolly springtime
             C        D
In the merry month of May
G            C
Oh the heavenly hours
CM7    D          G
Oh the come again day
G
Oh the jolly springtime
             C        D
In the merry month of May
G            C
Oh the heavenly hours
CM7    D          G
Oh the come again day
  [fade tenor drum]
