Standard tuning Capo: 4 G: 320033 D: XX0232 Em: 022000 C: X32010 Am: X02210 G D I went up to the mountain because you asked me to Em C Up over the clouds to where the sky was blue G D I could see all around me everywhere Em C G I could see all around me everywhere Sometimes I feel like I've never been nothing but tired And I'll be walking till the day I expire Sometimes I lay down, no more can I do But then I go on again because you ask me to C G Some days I look down afraid I will fall Am D And though the sun shines I see nothing at all C Em C Then I hear your sweet voice coming in, oh G D Telling me softly, softly you love me so The peaceful valley just over the mountain The peaceful valley few come to know I may never get there ever in this lifetime D Em C Em C But sooner or later, it's there I will go G D G Sooner or later, it's there I will go
