Capo 2

D                                          Em
Settling down with warm glow woodstove and kerosene

G                                                               D
Peace you're looking for Peace you'll find
                                                           Em

In the tangled mad cliffsides and crashing dark 
       G
of Big Sur
       A
of Big Sur

D                                                       Em

Rapturous ring of silence Pacific fury
                             G                                     D

Flashing on the rocks the sea shroud towers
                                                                               Em

The innocence of health and stillness in the wilds
      G
of Big Sur
       A
of Big Sur

                     Em                                                        G

This whole surface of the world as we know it now
              Em                                                                   G

Will be covered with the silt of a billion years in time 

Verse chords for interlude

D                           Em
I see as much as doors will allow
                           G                               A

Iím a long way from the beat generation
D                                                                           Em

Here comes the nightly moth to his nightly death
      
           G
in Big Sur
           A
in Big Sur

D                                                        Em

The best thing to do is not to be false
                               G                                                       A

The rocks of the valley have left no howl of complaint
D                                                              Em   
 
Iím just a sick clown and so is everybody else
      
            G
in Big Sur
            A
in Big Sur
