C                   G6           

I want to reach out over the Loch

Am                               F

And feel your hand across the water

C                      G6

Walk with you along an unapproved road

Am                     F

Not looking over my shoulder

C                  G6

I wanna see, and I wanna hear

Am            F       

To under- stand your fears

          C         G6           Am       F

But we're north and south of the river

          C              G6

I've been doing it wrong all of my life

Am                              F

This holy town has turned me over

            C                           G6

A young man running from what he didn't understand

          Am                          F

While the wind from the Loch just get colder, colder

C                           G6

There was a badness that had its way

Am                      F

But love wasn't lost, love will have its day

C         G6           Am       F

North and south of the river

                        C      G6     Am     F

North and south of the river

C                           G6

Can we stop playing this old tattoo

Am                         F

Darling I don't have the answer

C                  G6

I wanna meet you where you are

Am                   F

I don't need ya to surrender

                  C                 G6

'Cause there's no feeling that's so alone

            Am                 F

When when the one you're hurting is your own

C         G6           Am      F

North and south of the river

                       C      G6     

North and south of the river

                       Am     F

North and south of the river

C                     G6

Some high ground is not worth taking

Am                 F

Some connections are not worth making

C                      G6

This old church bell no longer ringing

Am                   F

Some old songs are not worth bringing

C              G6          Am             F

North / Higher ground is not worth taking
