Tom Rush - East Of Eden chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
We come this far and we can't turn back,
This trains run out of track,
G                                D
Seems like there ain't no use in tryin'
Now I'm not one to abandon hope,
But this might be all she wrote,
G                          D             G
Our destination fades like smoke in the sky.

And we come this far and it's still the same,
Standin' out here in the rain,
G                                    D  
Just one more mile if only you could fly.

Ah, here we are east of Eden,
So close you can taste the freedom,
G                         D    
Freedom like you've never known.
Ah, east of Eden in the promised land,
Just a castle made of sand,
G                     D                 G
Ah, don't it make you wish you could go home.
G                     D                 G
Ah, don't it make you wish you could go home.

And all this time we kept our dream,
Nothin' ever came between,
Finally, we were standin' at the gate.
Ah, the gate is closed and there's a wall,
Never thought it would be so tall,
Just a piece of paper seals your fate.

Any child could feel the pain,
But the high and mighty have no shame,
Where you are is where you must remain.
