about

this takes the chords from Shenandoah with completely different lyrics

lyrics

Grief Begone

How the breath of wings
Is not our breathing
How the air is not our ground
Though our feet move dust
Our work move mountains
They return to where we found them

How the songs we sing
Are of our mothers
How the words we choose
Echo their dreams
Tie me to something
That’s not a man
Who can tire
And break from dreaming

Oh the losses we
Are bound to get through
As we weep and tire of weeping
Though the tears become
A mighty river
Grief be-gone
Our grief be-gone
Across the light of daybreak

If your heart stands
Among the wreckage
I will stand beside your silence
Not a word of blame
Not a thought to ruin
Though we’ll see his like again

Oh the losses we
Are bound to get through
As we weep and tire of weeping
Though the tears become
A mighty river
Grief be-gone
Our grief be-gone
Across the light of daybreak
