Your Long Journey
Your Long Journey - Sam Amidon Original on the album "Lily-O" - Capo 1st fret Singing starts on D# Intro : D A D G D 1. D A D G D God's given us years of happiness here, now we must part D A D And as the angels come and call for you A D G D The pains of grief tug at my heart Chorus (2x) A D Oh my darling, my darling A D G D my heart breaks as you take your long journey 2. D A D G D Oh the days will be empty the nights so long without you my love D A D And when god calls for you I'm left alone A D G D but we will meet in heaven above Chorus A D Oh my darling, my darling A D G D my heart breaks as you take your long journey (Here's a solo by Bill Frisell while the chords are nearly the same as in the chorus.) 3. D A D G D Fond memories of dear and happy ways that on earth we trod D A D And when I come we will walk hand in hand A D G D As one in heaven in the family of god Chorus (2x) A D Oh my darling, my darling A D G D my heart breaks as you take your long journey Sam Amidon says in his interviews (watch them on youtube or read them in different "googled" magazines) about this song, that it is his favourite and most personal one from the album Lily-O.
