Billy Joel – Two Thousand Years tab
Ok I'm kinda new, so go easy on me Billy Joel Two Thousand Years From The River of Dreams F In the beginning Bb C there was the cold and the night Gm Prophets and angels C F gave us the fire and the light Dm Man was triumphant A dim Bb B dim Armed with the faith and the will Bb F C That even the darkest ages couldn't kill F Too many kingdoms Bb C Too many flags on the field Gm So many battles C F So many wounds to be healed Dm Time is relentless Adim Bb Bdim Only true love perseveres F Bb Dm It's been a long time and now I'm with you C F After two thousand years F This is our moment Bb C Here at the crossroads of time Gm We hope our children C F Carry our dreams down the line Dm they are the vintage A dim Bb Bdim What kind of life will they live? Bb F C Is this a curse or a blessing that we give? F Sometimes I wonder Bb C Why are we so blind to Fate? Gm Without compassion C F there can be no end to hate Dm No end to sorrow Adim Bb Bdim caused by the same endless fears Bb F Dm Why cant we learn from all weve been through C F after two thousand years? F There will be miracles Bb C after the last war is won Gm Science and poetry C F Rule in the new world to come Dm Prophets and angels dim Bb Bdim gave us the power to see Bb F C what an amazing future there will be F And in the evening Bb C after the fire and the light Gm One thing is certain C F nothing can hold back the night Dm Time is relentless Adim Bb Bdim and as the past disappears F Bb Dm Were on the verge of all things new C Bb F We are two thousand years Outro F-Bb-C-F Notes: I find that the F and Bb in the second-to-last line of each stanza is I placed them where I thought they sounded best, but they are subjective. Also, at the of stanza, Joel goes up the bass from F to Bb (starting at F to G etc.) and when the bass to Bb the chord changes. Thats easier to understand on piano
