  Song: When These Mountains were The Seashore

Tabbed by: Adri Mac

†††††††††††††††††† G
When these mountains were the seashore
††††††††††††††††††C†††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am
When this desert was the ocean floor
††††††††††††††††††G††††††††††††††D7†††    E
We would swim beneath the star-filled sky
††††††††††††††††C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††G††D7  G
We were lovely fish alone in the night

††††††††††††††††††G
Before the cities met the heavens
††††††††††††††C††††††††††††††††Am
I mean way way back before then
††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††     D7  ††††E
We would sing as if it were a prayer
††††††††††††††††††††††
c                                         G†††D7††G
We were lovely fish who dreamed of the air


C†††††††††††† G†††††††††††††† Am      ††G
Before clocks kept track of the time
††††††††††††C††††††††††G††††††††††††††Am†††† G
When day led gracefully into the night
††††††C††††††††††††G†††††††††††††† Am††††
Before two fish that dreamed to fly
    ††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††  
C                                 D7†E††† D7††G    
Created their sadness and new reasons to cry

G 
When the mountains were a seashore
C 
And this desert was the ocean floor
G                D7       E
You and I were not born yet
C                                  G D7 G
Itís too long ago now even to forget

G 
When the blue sky found its courage
C
To love and raise a new ridge
G                          D7      E
Back when life was simply meant to be
C                                G D7 G
Our love and care alone in the sea

C         G         D7
Before clocks kept track of the time
C               G        D        G
When day led gracefully into the night
C            G           A         G
Before two fish that dreamed to fly
C                                   D7              E D7 G
Got suspicious of the miracle and asked themselves why

BRIDGE
G
When we looked up through the water
C
At time and space and wonder
G                                  D7
What it might be like to live up there
C                                    G D7 G
To leave our fins and gills for the air

C         G          D7            G
Before clocks kept track of the time
C           G      D7         G
Before the poems began to rhyme
C                   G       A           G
Before two simple fish even learned to cry
C                         D7                   E   D7    G
Got suspicious of their love and asked each other why
