Capo: 3

Key: D



Intro: Bm, D, A, G, Bm, D, A

VERSE 1:
         Bm                    D
Did you hear of the city on the hill?
          A                   G
Said the one old man to the other
                Bm                             D
It once shined bright and it would be shining still
          A                           G
But they all started turning on each other


Bm, D, A


VERSE 2:
             Bm                              D
You see the poets thought the dancers were shallow
           A                             G
And the soldiers thought the poets were weak
          Bm                           D
And the elders saw the young ones as foolish
         A                        G
And the rich man never heard the poor man speak


CHORUS: 
            G            D
And one by one they ran away
            A                         Em
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
          G              D                   A
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill
               Bm
The city on a hill


D, A, G


VERSE 3:
            Bm                    D
Each one thought that they knew better
                  A           G
But there were different by design
             Bm              D
Instead of standing strong together
                  A          G
They let their differences divide


CHORUS 2:
            G            D
And one by one they ran away
            A                        Em
With their made up minds to leave it all behind
          G             D                     A
And the light began to fade in the city on a hill


               Bm   D   A
The city on a hill
         Em                  Bm     D      A
And the world is searchin' still



BRIDGE:
                 G
But it was the rhythm of the dancers that gave the poets life
             D                                  A
It was the spirit of the poets that gave the soldiers strength to fight
            G                                   Bm
It was the fire of the young ones, it was the wisdom of the old
             A
It was the story of the poor man that needed be told


Bm, D, A, G, Bm, D, A



CHORUS 3:
        G                D
One by one, will we run away?
          A                         Em
With our made up minds to leave it all behind
         G              D                     A
As the light begins to fade in the city on a hill?
               Bm    
The city on a hill


D


END:
      A
Come home
          Em              Bm - D
And the Father's calling still
      A
Come home
        Em          Bm - D
To the city on the hill
      A
Come home
