Between a Rock and a Far Place Suggested Tempo = 115 BPM
Words and Music by Kenneth Francis Flaherty and Richard Melvin Brown (Socan)
A Amaj7 G D
We walk an earthly path with Heaven in our hearts.
C#m F#m B7 E
Each sacred step we take brings our bodies close to tire.
C#7 F#m C F
Within our rest and dreams we find the truth to play a part.
E7 A G E7
A perfect silence fills a heart with Heaven’s fire.
A Amaj7 G D
Sometimes we’re restless through the day and sleepless through the night.
C#m F#m B7 E
Our minds and our hearts: a battle not yet won.
C#7 F#m C F
Although Heaven’s on the way, behind the senseless screams and fights,
E7 A G E7
Here comes the final war between the Earth and Son.
CHORUS
F#m C#m C#m7b5 G A
The body is bound to Earth while the spirit soars in space.
C#m7b5 F#7 Bm E7 D E7 G A
Our minds and hearts shall live eternally between a rock and a far place.
SHORT INSTRUMENTAL BREAK
A Amaj7 G D
Temptation taunts the mind while our hearts here long for love.
C#m F#m B7 E
We’re torn between foe and father each and every day.
C#7 F#m C F
And though we search the sky for some help from up above,
E7 A G E7
The body still seeks its fill in each and every way.
A Amaj7 G D
The Son holds his head up high as the Earth is laid to rest.
C#m F#m B7 E
The spirit soars to heights above the distant stars.
C#7 F#m C F
A body fills the ground, yet it always thought that it knew best.
E7 A G E7
A new soul finds its place in Heaven’s home afar.
REPEAT CHORUS
