Bm G It's not I'm ungrateful for all I've been given; Em A D But nevertheless, just the same... Verse 2 D Em A7 I wish to my soul, I was back in Mon-tana, G Em A High on my mountain and deep in the snow. Bm G Em A D Up in my cabin, over the valley, Under the blankets with you. Chorus Bm G A D A O------------ O------ ver the ocean from here. Bm G A D A O------------ O-------ver the mountains from there. Verse 3 D Em A7 Who can imagine the scale of the forces G Em A That pushed this old mountain range up in the sky? Bm G Tec-tonic creation, e-rosion, mutation; Em A D Somethin' to pleasure God's eye. Verse 4 D Em A7 The world is a wonder of lightnin' and thunder, G Em A And green of the ground as we fall from the sky. Bm G The old and new faces, the tribes and the races... Em A D Thousands of places to try. Chorus Bm G A D A O------------ O------ ver the ocean from here. Bm G A D A O------------ O-------ver the mountains from there. Verse 5 D Em A Bm One sits and waits while the other one wanders, G Em A And squanders his time with a life on the road. Bm G Down from the mountain, a-cross the wide ocean, Bm A D The world is in motion and cannot be slowed. Verse 6 D Em A7 Enough for today... the de-mands of the moment, G Em A The thing on my mind is the work in my hand. Bm G Wood for the woodstove and water for coffee, Em A D Somethin' I can still under-stand. Verse 7 D Em A7 We got a few friends but not many neighbors, G Em A The trip into town takes us most of the day. Bm G And after, "Hello", and "it's sure good to see you", Emm A D It seems like there's nothin' to say. Outro Bm G A D O------------ O------ ver the ocean from here.
