E                 A                     B
You were dreamin' on a park bench by the broad highway somewhere

E                   A                    B
When music from the carilon it seemed to hurl your heart out there

E                   A                                 B 
Past the scientific darkness, past the fireflies that float

E            A                                      B
To an angel bending down to wrap you in her warmest coat


And you ask, "What am I not doing?" 

She says, "Your voice cannot command." 

She says, "In time, you will move mountains, 

B7                     E
and it will co-------ome through your hands."

E                A              B
Still you argue for an option, still you angle for your case

E                A              B
Like you wouldn't know a burnin' bush if it blew up in your face

E                A              B
Yeah, we scheme about the future as we dream about the past
E                A              B
When just a simple reachin' out might build a bridge that lasts


BREAK:  G F#maj7        Emin7 A7sus4 A7

Yeeaahhh eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

E                A              B
So whatever your hands find to do, go on and do it with all your heart

E                A              B
There are thoughts enough to blow men's minds and tear great worlds apart

E                A              B
There's a healin' touch to find you out on that broad highway somewhere

E                A              B
To lift you high like music flyin through the angel's hair.

Don't ask what you are not doing

Because your voice cannot command

You see, in time, we will move mountains

And it will come        through -- 

--no chord-------- E    A    B    E    A    B 
Right through your hands.       ////    ////    //

E                A              B
Through your hands //// //// //

E         A (slow & fade on A, then end on E) 
Through your haaannnnddss....
