Two Thousand Years -- Billy Joel

This is transposed into the key of G for ease of play -- the original is in F


          G
In the beginning
              G/B  C       D
there was the cold and the night
             Am     Am7
Prophets and angels
            C    D       G
gave us the fire and the light
            F6 (xx3535)
Man was triumphant
                Bdim (xx3434) Am  C#dim (xx2323)
Armed with the faith and the will
              G       C             D
That even the darkest ages couldn't kill

         G
Too many kingdoms
         G/B   C      D
Too many flags on the field
        Am       Am7
So many battles
        C      D     G
So many wounds to be healed
        F6 (xx3535)
Time is relentless
          Bdim (xx3434) Am     C#dim (xx2323)
Only true love    perseveres
            G             Em   G/B     C
It's been a long time and now I'm with you
      D             (G C Em D) (G C Em D) (G C Em D) (G C Em D G)  
After two thousand years


            G
This is our moment
            G/B  C        D
Here at the crossroads of time
             Am       Am7
We hope our children
           C      D       G
Carry our dreams down the line
             F6 (xx3535)
they are the vintage
             Bdim (xx3434)  Am     C#dim (xx2323)
What kind of life will they live?
          G          C                D
Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?

            G
Sometimes I wonder
           G/B  C        D
Why are we so   blind to Fate?
             Am       Am7
Without compassion
             C  D      G
there can be no end to hate
          F6 (xx3535)
No end to sorrow
              Bdim (xx3434) Am     C#dim (xx2323)
caused by the same endless  fears
              G         Em  G/B        C
Why can’t we learn from all we’ve been through
      D            (G C Em D) (G C Em D) (G C Em D) (G C Em D G)  
after two thousand years?


              G  
There will be miracles
          G/B  C      D
after the last war is won
            Am      Am7
Science and poetry
            C   D        G
Rule in the new world to come
             F6 (xx3535)
Prophets and angels
            Bdim (xx3434) Am  C#dim (xx2323)
gave us the power      to see
         G      C                 D
what an amazing future there will be

           G
And in the evening
          G/B  C       D
after the fire and the light
             Am       Am7
One thing is certain
            C    D        G
nothing can hold back the night
        F6 (xx3535)
Time is relentless
           Bdim (xx3434) Am     C#dim (xx2323)
and as the past      disappears
             G     Em   G/B      C
We’re on the verge of all things new
       D           (G C Em D) (G C Em D) (G C Em D) (G C Em D G)  
We are two thousand years
