Thoroughfare Gap chords
Stephen Stills

G  C  G  D   G  C  G  D  

G C GSometimes I consider my pace,
D G CI'm reminded of a train gathering speed,
G Dfor the climb to the pass
G C GIn whose shadow it all really lies,
D G Ca small metal wagon approaching,
G Dthe ever present ascending rise;
G C G D to the southern mountains
G C GReeling and snaking and leaping,
D G Cit seems like it wants to come loose,
G Dfrom its path cast in iron
G C GBut she can't slow down now,
D G Cas the earth has presented,
G Ca new crest to reach
G Dwithout barely a rest;
G C G D from the last one
G C GAnd you wonder just what lies beyond,
D G Cthough you've been there before,
G Dand forget about the effort and the strain
G CAlways ascending,
G Deach yard adds a mile,
G Cto the never-ending pull,
G Dof the steepening grade;
G C G D G C G Dthat's before you
G C G D A valley, a forest, a desert, a stream,
G Cwith an oversized bridge,
G Dfor the trickle there beneath
G CYou remember the torrent,
G Dit turned to last spring,
G Cfrom the snows melting fast
G Dand the river it became;
G C G Din the summer
G CPerhaps it is ruined,
G Dfrom a fire that has scorched it,
G Cso badly that nothing
G Dwill grow without rain
G CTo wash away the blackened soil,
G D Gnow useless till called upon again,
C G Din a future as twisted and far away;
G C G Das the next range of mountains
G C GSo take it as far as you see
Dand beyond,
G Cwith eyes you don't use enough,
G Dgather up strength
G CAs Thoroughfare Gap,
G Dwill await you forever,
G Cyou're seeking to get there
G Dfor even before;
Cit's no matter;
Dno distance;
G C G Gsus4 Git's the ride
