Dm-F-C-G  8x




(C)We could be as free as the (F)wild flowers on the (C)mountains

As the (Dm)birds upon the ocean, as the (F)waves upon the (G)sand

(C)Come the winter’s gale, let’s (F)set the wheels in (C)motion

Rise (F)up my friends and country(Dm)men come (G)join along with (C)me.


(Dm)Build the mountain (F)high, (C)blossom with in(G)tegrity

(Dm)Problems never (F)die, without (C)answering the (G)cause

We’ll (Dm)set the hills and (F)plains with (C)words of revo(G)lution

???(Dm)???(F)??? the (C)birds have flown their (G)cage. -G




But (Dm)friends are back ??? (F)strange, my (C)mother has for(G)saken me

The (Dm)men in black have (F)spoken with an (C)awful evil (G)tongue

That (Dm)man who speaks the (F)words of (C)love and under(G)standing

Has (Dm)turned my humbled (F)frame to the (C)darkness of its (G)fire. -G


But (C)will you come with me to the (F)buttercups and (C)daisies

(Dm)Over hills and mountains be(F)neath the sky a(G)bove

The (C)air??? be our truth when the (F)truth has been our (C)sorrow

So (F)rise my friends and country(Dm)men come (G)join along with (C)me.


In (Dm)union there is (F)strength, we’ll (C)find our strength in (G)numbers

Let’s (Dm)organize our(F)selves in(C)to a powerful (G)band

Is it (Dm)difficult to (F)see this (C)world’s so ill di(G)vided

Is it (Dm)hard for you and (F)me to (C)face these problems (G)all - G

The Grandfather Lyrics Without The Chords


We could be as free as the wild flowers on the mountains

As the birds upon the ocean, as the waves upon the sand

Come the winters gale, lets set the wheels in motion

Rise up my friends and countrymen come join along with me.


Build the mountain high, blossom with integrity

Problems never die, without answering the cause

Well set the hills and ablaze with words of revolution

The beauracrats amaze the birds have flown their cage




But friends are acting strange, my mother has forsaken me

The men in black have spoken with an awful evil tongue

That man who speaks the words of love and understanding

Has turned my humbled frame to the darkness of its fire. -G


But will you come with me to the buttercups and daisies

Over hills and mountains beneath the sky above

The earth can be our truth when the truth has been our sorrow

So rise my friends and countrymen come join along with me.


In union there is strength, well find our strength in numbers

Lets organize ourselves into a powerful band

Is it difficult to see this worlds so ill divided

Is it hard for you and me to face these problems all
