    F - C

 

   Dm                 Em                     F            G

1.       If life is a river and your heart is a boat,

C                         Am                       - Dm              G

    and just like a water, baby, baby,        born to float.

F                         Em                     F                  G

    And if life is a wild wind  that blows way on high,

C                                 Am   Dm         G

    and your heart is Amelia dying to fly.

F                   G    - C7            A7

    Heaven knows       no frontiers,

Dm                       G                     F      - C

    and I've seen heaven in your eyes.

 

   Dm                      Em                  F                    G

2.     And if life is a bar room in which we must wait,

C                                        Am                Dm      G

    'round the man with his fingers on the ivory gates.

F                                   Em               F                   G

    Where we sing until dawn of our fears and our fates,

C                                    Am              Dm                     G

    and we stack all the dead men in self addressed crates.

 

                  C                                           G

    In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark

             E                             Am                                       F

    that somehow this black night feels warmer for the spark.

                                 C                                G

    Warmer for the spark to hold us 'til the day

                E                     Am                                   F

    when fear will lose it's grip and heaven has its way.

F                   G    - C7            A7

    Heaven knows       no frontiers,

Dm                       G                     F

    and I've seen heaven in your eyes.

3.     If your life is a rough bed of brambles and nails,

C                                Am                    Dm                   G

    and your spirit's a slave to man's whips and man's jails.

F                                           Em            F                 G

    Where you thirst and you hunger for justice and right,

C                                    Am                 Dm                    G

    and your heart is the pure flame of man's constant night.

 

                  C                                           G

    In your eyes faint as the singing of a lark

             E                             Am                                       F

    that somehow this black night feels warmer for the spark.

                                 C                                G

    Warmer for the spark to hold us 'til the day

                E                      Am                                   F

    when fear will lose it's grip and heaven has its way.

                                      C                                  G

    And heaven has its way when all will harmonise

               E                          Am                              F

    and know what's in our hearts, the dream will realise.

F                   G    - C7            A7

    Heaven knows       no frontiers,

Dm                       G                     F

    and I've seen heaven in your eyes.

                     G    - C7            A7

    Heaven knows       no frontiers,

Dm                       G                     F      - C

    and I've seen heaven in your eyes.
