Other Side of the Hill

Intro: D/G/D/A D/G/D/A fig

In a (D)far land, in the (F#m)distance
(Gbar)There's a mother and (D)small child(A),
And she (D)cries as she (F#)stumbles (Bm)along the (F#)dusty
(Bm)road,
(Gbar)Discussions on the (F#m)TV, and(B) fingers point the
(C#m)blame,
(Abar)While the guns do the (G#m)talking,
It's the(G) same old story(D) over a(A)gain.

D/G/D/A fig

On the(D) two sides of a(F#m) city,
(Gbar)Hearts and minds seem(D)forever closed(A),
As the(D)smoke drifts in(F#)billows a(Bm)cross the
(F#)barri(Bm)cades,
(G)Where the sins of the(F#m) fathers haunt the (B)daughters
and the(C#m) sons,
(A bar)And no one seems to (G#m)notice all the(G) love songs
under the (D)gun(A)fire.

But on the (C)other (A)side of the (C)hill,
There'll be(folk G) new songs to(D) sing,
More(Bm) winding roads to (F#m)follow,
And(G bar) more deep rivers to(A) swim.
Here's(D) to our children's' (C)children,
And (G)all their hopes and (Asus)fears(A),
As they (D)try to build Jer(folk G)usalem
From(E7) all our poisoned (A7sus)years(A7).

D/G/D/A

Though that (D)hill seems so(F#m) steep and long,
(G bar)And we carry a (D)heavy load(A),
(D)One day we can (F#)reach the top of that(Bm) rough and
(F#)rocky (Bm)road,
(Gbar)Keep your love light(F#m) shining, and (B)don't let out the
(C#m)flame,
(A bar)Don't give up, you're the (G#m)only hope
For a(G) world so full of (D)sorrow and(A) shame.

But on the other side of the hill,


(C)Storms u(G)pon the (Am)ocean wave,
Were(C) like a (E)ship lost at (F)sea(G),
(C bar)Tossed by those(G) winds of war,
(Bb)Far from that(F) peaceful shore,
By(Em) those who are out for (B7)gain,
By(Em) those who sell death and pain(A/G).

D/G/D/A

In the (D)playground of a(F#m) city school,
(G bar)Children sing to their (D)skipping rhymes(A),
(D)Teddy bear, teddy bear (F#)say your prayers
To the(Bm) rhythm(F#) of the (Bm) drum,
(G bar)All playing the(F#m) same game through the (B)laughter
and the (C#m)tears.
(A bar)Giving hope for the (G#m)future, through(G) all those
hard and(D) dangerous (A)years.
