Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
A great folky tune by Joe Summers. Not 100% sure of the lyrics, but see for yourself.

              G                      C
This light of mine will offer up for handing,
              G                         D
This light of mine will take you to the brink,
           G                         C
To feel it all come sweetly flooding over,
        G          D                G
To feel free, free enough to breath again

(Instrumental Verse, banjo enters)

          G                                C
There's a strange, strange feeling in this city,
          G                        D
There's a dark, dark figure on the hill,
         G                       C
And this speechless, wandering committee,
          G        D               G
Will take all your hope into their will

        D           C              Em
Calling down, down, down among the lonesome,
       D            C                  G
Crying out, till my voice will make no sound,
       D           C         Em
Colder hands won't offer any help son,
        D                   G
Turn it out, turn the boat around

(Instrumental Verse)

          G                         C
There's a glow down there among the breakers,
        G                       D
Could a calmer wind be calm and true?
           G                         C
To feel it all come sweetly flooding over,
        G     D             G
Let the water wash away the new

        D           C              Em
Calling down, down, down among the lonesome,
       D            C                  G
Crying out, till my voice will make no sound,
       D           C         Em
Colder hands won't offer any help son,
        D                   G
Turn it out, turn the boat around

        D           C              Em
Calling down, down, down among the lonesome,
       D            C                  G
Crying out, till my voice will make no sound,

(Accompaniment out, slow guitar strums only)

       D           C         Em
Colder hands won't offer any help son,

(Accompaniment back in)

        D                   G
Turn it out, turn the boat around
        D                   G
Turn it out, turn the boat around
(Slower)
        D                   G
Turn it out, turn the boat around
