[Intro]
Db  F  C  C

[Verse]
FThere's a place I'm gonna leave to
FWhen all this questioning is through
BbI'm gonna set my course to somewhere further North
BbThan my eyes have ever viewed
FAnd though I know that the thought proceeds me
FI know that others seek it too
BbBut when I get where the needle leads me
Bb F AmWell I swear, and I swear, you'll never lead me away again
FAnd in the time when the peace of islands
FWas first by human hand disturbed
BbThey built their houses and they said obedience
BbWas all the lives of men were worth
FAnd in the shadow of the temperance
FThey laid boundaries in the dirt
BbAnd when the door had a narrow entrance
Bb FWith their hands on their shirts they would pray for the non-believers
[Chorus]
DbAnd there's a place called North
FmAnd they're gathering there to sing
CAnd I knock three times and beg them
FmBut they will not let me in
DbAnd "Oh, my girl" they say
Fm"You're the carrier to no gain"
CBut I lay, what I can, somewhere North of this and
F AmWould you turn me away again?
[Verse]
FAnd do you go where the needle leads to
FAnd when you get there will you change?
BbOut where the nights are soft
BbAnd now you go because you think that Paradise should be tamed
FAnd how you live is by a map of humanity
FAnd now you grip it 'cause you think that it saves
BbBut I've seen what you see, it looks different to me
Bb FI see lights to the shore and all these hearts beating other rhythms
BbNow they die to be born
FAnd all their mysteries are dying with them
[Chorus]
DbAnd there's a place called North
FmAnd you're gathering there to sing
CAnd I knock three times and beg you
FmBut you will not let me in
DbBut though I love so hard
FmNow I'm the carrier to this gate
CAnd I lay, what I can, somewhere North of us and
Bb FmWould you turn me away again?
Bb Fm
DbAnd would these winds would lift
FmAnd they carry me to your door
CAnd I knock three times and tell you
FmI can't help where I was born
DbBut don't I love enough
FmIsn't holiness where it forms?
CIf I take, what I have, to the North
Bb FmIs there room on your piece of Heaven?
Bb Fm Bb Fm Bb C
FOh would you turn me away again?
