The Undiscovered Country.
Rosanne Cash.
Album: She Remembers Everything.
Capo 3.

Intro: Am Em Am Em Am Em7 Am C D Am G6 C D Am
    C         Em   D
All those who go before us,
    Am7             Am   G6 Em
The mothers and the kings,
C               Em    D
Shakespeare and my father,
         Am7                 G6 Em
Who kick dust up in my dreams,
          C                D7/F#
If you're too close to the voices,
        Am                      C
You can stray far from the track,
       D    G
So goodbye, my friends,
Dm   Am         G     D    Am  
It's my turn to won't look back.

Break: G Em C D Am7 A Am7 A

    Am     C              D    
The ghosts have had their moment,
    G    Am7           Am                
Now they fade into the sun,
C              G/D  D
Shining like a carousel,
     Am7                 Bm7
When summer's just begun,
C                D7
Bonded for their silence,
Am                      G6 Am7
And I threw away the key,
    D           G
Someone's going down,
D7/F#    Am  D Am
But it's not me.

G               Bm
All because I'm thankful,
         F6            C
For what we don't understand
    G                Bm
The undiscovered country, 
          Fmaj7       A  G6 Am
Between a woman and a man.

Break: C D Am C D Am7 D7 D/E Am

    C                G  D
All those who follow after,
    D7             Am
Are children who we pledge,
     C             D
To a story of some sailors,
    Am                  G6 Em
Who float beyond the edge,
         D              G  D7  D
To their little old box of wishes,
      Am             C 
Oh we want them to retire,
D
Just beyond their grasp,
    G       Am
And plain desires.

    C             D
The old men never helped us,
     Am7
They took our every vow,
C                D
Turned them into money,
    Am
And look where we are now,
C             D7  D
Waiting for a savior,
        Am
But she walks alone to sea,
C       D     G/D       G6 Em C
And someone's going down,
    G    Am7     Am
She went down for me.

G                        Bm
And still she says she's thankful,
D        F6            C
For what we don't understand,
    G                D/F#
The undiscovered country,
         Fmaj7        Am7 
In every woman, every man,

Break: C D Am C D Am C D Am G/D G6 C Am

     C        n/c
Some day will come the questions,
n/c
With no answers, but we ask,
n/c
Just the same when we were children,
n/c
Which was sweet but doesn't last,
         G                Am7
From the undiscovered country,
   Am
We hear the old refrain,
    D
The sky is blue,
        C   G6    Am
For the few who remain.

G               Bm
All because I'm thankful,
        F6              C
For the things we never planned,
    G                D/F#
The undiscovered country,
         Fmaj7        Am7
In every woman, every man,
G                 D
Raise a glass, be thankful,
         F6            C
For what we don't understand,
    G                D7/F# Bm F
The undiscovered country,
n/c                      Am7 D D7 Am 
Between a woman and a man.
