This is taken at a bit of a clip, I think! But you can hear the songs at a more stately pace in this old video of me performing it a few years ago:

LYRICS & CHORDS
(written by Larry Norman)

Goodbye, farewell, we’ll meet again (D, Bm, F#m,)
Somewhere beyond the sky. (D, Bm, F#m, A7)
I pray that you will stay with God (G, Em, D, Bm)
Goodbye, my friends, goodbye. (D, A7, D-G, D-G)

The light grows dim but in this hour (D, Bm, F#m,)
I have no tears to cry. (D, Bm, F#m, A7)
My heart is full, my joy complete. (G, Em, D, Bm)
Goodbye, my friends, goodbye. (D, A7, D-G, D-G)

I feel no loss of hope as I’ve grown older. (Bm, G, D)
Only this world’s weight upon my shoulder. (Bm, E7, Em7, A7)

My heart beats to a slower song, (D, Bm, F#m,)
So softly in my veins. (D, Bm, F#m, A7)
The night is warm, but in my sleep (G, Em, D, Bm)
I dream of heaven’s reign. (D, A7, D-G, D-G)

Everything I am I’ve tried to show you, (Bm, G, D)
In this life I’ve been so blessed to know you. (Bm, E7, Em7, A7)

Goodbye, farewell, we’ll meet again (D, Bm, F#m,)
Somewhere beyond the sky. (D, Bm, F#m, A7)
I pray that you will walk with God (G, G#dim, F#m, Bm)
Goodbye, my friends, goodbye. (Em, A7, Bm, E7)
Goodbye, my friends, goodbye. (Em, A7, D)

New Song – In A Thousand Years

Mugen Guitar Soundhole

[imported from Myspace]

OK – finished a new song.

It’s actually one I wrote and recorded over a year ago, and a few of you may have heard it in its earlier incarnation, but I’ve changed a few words, re-recorded the vocals and this morning I’ve just finished tweaking it. I think it might just be ready for public consumption.

It’s called “In A Thousand Years”.

Unlike most of my other songs it isn’t me playing all the instruments. The drums are by our son, Samuel.

Tell me what you think! I can take it! I’ve been known to change things before based on what friends have told me.

PS: I got a very nice comment today from the daughter of one of the greatest and most influential rock guitarists of all time, Scotty Moore! (Hi Vikki!)
