Seven Hillsides
by Walt Wilkins

Written by: Wilkins/Sheridan
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^

Am
All night I've wrestled Jacob's angel,

Prayed with Matthew, Luke, and John.

Struggling to find the words to face the task 
                    G           Am
That comes up the blood red dawn.

I've buried men before their time -

Alcohol, blackened lung

But how to bury seven of these Appalachian miner's sons
      G
Who stormed the beaches wave on wave,

Then sailed home to these rocky graves 
    Am
In family plots, that bear their name.

    C       G            Dm     Am
- Tomorrow I'll walk up seven hillsides
C            G                  Dm    Am
And tremble before my flock on seven hillsides.
F       G             Am           G              F
Seven sorrows, seven sons, seven mothers and everyone

Will turn to me for the word of God, what does this mean?
                 G
And there I'll stand, good book in hand
                             F
Shepherd to these precious lambs,
            Dm    ?           G               Am
What will I say, what will I say, what can I say? -

    Am
To tell the truth, I never though much 

About the will of God before.

When called to preach at seventeen, 
                                    G           Am
I was in love with firey words and not much more.

But the time has come to keep the faith

For other shattered by their loss

And remind them of a loving God

Whose son, like theirs, paid the cost,
    G
To save a sad and wicked world - 

Through sacrifice our love is heard
         Am
And I'll pray I believe those words.

- REPEAT CHORUS - 2X

At the end of the chorus the chord changes are from F to Dm to Dmaj to G and Am. The question mark should be replaced by D. It is a quick key change, pulling a 5 to 1 in G, then right back to Am.
