FARTHER ON  Jackson Browne
(Album: Late for the sky)

|Dsus4/A  D/A  |A        |Bm   G   |D     |
|Bm       E    |A        |G    A   |D     |

      Dsus4/A  D/A     A      A
In my early    years I hid my tears
    Bm        G       D
And passed my days alone
Bm            E        A    
Adrift on an ocean of loneliness
    G          A         D
My dreams like nets were thrown
   Dsus4/A    D/A       A         A
To catch  the love that I'd heard of
   Bm        G         D
In books and films and songs
              Bm          E            A
Now there's a world of illusion and fantasy
       G               A          D
In the place where the real world belongs
        G            A         D
Still I look for the beauty in songs

           F#m              A
To fill my head and lead me on
          G           A                D
Though my dreams have come up torn and empty
        A                          G
As many times as love has come and gone

         Dsus4/A    D/A      A      A
To those gentle     ones  my memory runs
       Bm          G             D
To the laughter we shared at the meals
Bm             E            A
I filled their kitchens and living rooms
       G              A         D
With my schemes and my broken wheels

       Dsus4/A   D/A       A      A
It was never     clear how far or near
    Bm           G          D
The gates to my citadel lay
          Bm           E          A   
They were cutting from stone some dreams of their own
         G               A       D
But they listened to mine anyway
        G             A             D
I'm not sure what I'm trying to say
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jackson_browne/farther_on_crd.html ]
         F#m             A
It could be I've lost my way
         G      A              D
Though I keep a watch over the distance
            A                        G
Heaven's no closer than it was yesterday

        D          A        F#
And the angels are older
     Bm               Bm/A           G
They know not to wait up for the sun
                  D         A/C#
They look over my shoulder
       Bm           Bm/A            E/G#            A
At the maps and the drawings of the journey I've begun

|Dsus4/A  D/A  |A       |Bm   G   |D   A/C#  |
|Bm       E    |A       |G    A   |D         |
|Dsus4/A  D/A  |A       |Bm   G   |D   A/C#  |
|Bm       E    |A       |G    A   |D         |

        G         A               D
Now the distance leads me farther on
           F#m                    A
Though the reasons I once had are gone
       G             A             D
I keep thinking I'll find what I'm looking for
       A                G
In the sand beneath the dawn

        D          A        F#
But the angels are older
     Bm               Bm/A           G
They can see that the sun's setting fast
                  D         A/C#
They look over my shoulder
       Bm           Bm/A      E/G#                      A
At the vision of paradise contained in the light of the past
        D          A        F#
And they lay down behind me
                    Bm            Bm/A           G
To sleep beside the road till the morning has come
                          D       A/C#
Where they know they will find me
        Bm          Bm/A                G
With my maps and my faith in the distance
       A       D      G  A
Moving farther on

|D   A/C#   |Bm    Bm/A    |G    A    |D      ||
