Judy Collins - Kingdom Come


CAPO: 3rd Fret



[Intro]
Am  Em  Am  G

[Verse 1]
       Am
It was seven months since 9/11
        Em                    Am
And the work was almost done

It was seven months since 9/11
        G
And the work had just begun
       F
Ground Zero lit the evening sky
       Em
Like a dagger through the heart
    F
The searchlights drove through heaven's gates
    G
And blew them far apart


[Verse 2]
  Am
A few miles north on the Hudson River
       Em                           Am
We had gathered for a sort of wake

Nobody felt like celebrating
        G
But the Firemen needed a break
       F
They'd been to so many funerals
         Em
And seen so many terrible sights
F
Been to Ground Zero from dawn to dusk
    G                            C
And round the clock some nights


[Chorus]
                   F
From Kingdom come
                  C
To hell and gone
                  F    Am
To somewhere far away
      G               F         Em
Where murder does not break the heart
     D            Am  Em  Am  G
On a sunny day


[Verse 3]
      Am
I was all dressed up like the rest of the gang
       Em                    Am
At the Roxy Club that night

The men and women in uniform
G                            F
Tried hard to keep it light

Kevin Bacon played and sang
    Em                    F
And folks began to smile
                                    G
Chris Botti played his silver horn

With rhythm and with style


[Verse 4]
 Am
I sang the song 'Amazing Grace'
Em                           Am
And people hugged and cried

Ronan Tynan sang 'Danny Boy'
           G            f
And not an eye was dry

Steve Buscemi spoke of life
   Em
At Engine 55
   F
Of how those firemen stayed the course
    G                    C
And saved so many lives


[Chorus]
                   F
From Kingdom come
                  C
To hell and gone
                  F    Am
To somewhere far away
      G               F         Em
Where murder does not break the heart
     D
On a sunny day


[Interlude]
Am  Em  Am  G  Am  Em  Am  G


[Verse 5]
  Am
A burly man with a handsome face
      Em                       Am
Stuck out his hand and smiled
                                        G
"Say, meet my wife, we like your songs
                                   F
We've been with you mile for mile"

Though he had a rugged face
  Em
I thought I saw the hurt
F
Then he pointed to a spot
          G
Above the collar of his shirt


[Verse 6]
     Am
"Ah, just look there on the back of my neck
          Em
There's a tattoo, can you see?
Am
Just right there", I got up close
            G           F
And saw the number 343

The number of those heroes
         Em                      F
Who were lost on that black day

The number of those firemen
       G                     C
Ground Zero was their grave


[Chorus]
                   F
From Kingdom come
                  C
To hell and gone
                  F    Am
To somewhere far away
      G               F         Em
Where murder does not break the heart
     D            Am  Em  Am  G
On a sunny day


[Verse 7]
      Am
Those firemen loaded up with gear
        Em                        Am
Climbed to their deaths that day

Along with all the other hundreds
G
Blasted on their way
F
Police and EMS and those
   Em
On whom death took its toll
    F
And more whose dreams will never dawn
G                               Am
More than three thousand souls


[Verse 8]
                             Em
I left the party after that
                          Am
I couldn't stay my tears

For all our gifts for all our hopes
    G                       F
For all our nameless fears

For all our heroes, men and women
Em
Lost on that black day
    F
The firemen with their courage
         G                           F
In their hearts so strong and brave
                                   G
Who made sure in their final hour
                                  C
There were twenty thousand saved


[Bridge]
                       F
They've gone to where
                    C
There are no tears
                   F    Am
And every heart is gay
              G     F      Em
They will not be forgotten
     D          C
On a sunny day


[Chorus]
                   F
From Kingdom come
                  C
To hell and gone
                  F    Am
To somewhere far away
      G               F         Em
Where murder does not break the heart
     D           Am
On a sunny day
      G              F          Em   D
Where we can live in peace all again

On a sunny day_____
