Seven Hillsides
by Walt Wilkins

Written by: Wilkins/Sheridan

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
Who stormed the beaches wave on wave,

Then sailed home to these rocky graves 
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?
And there I'll stand, good book in hand
Shepherd to these precious lambs,
            Dm    ?           G               Am
What will I say, what will I say, what can I say? -

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,
To save a sad and wicked world - 

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


Am    =   X02210
G     =   320033
C     =   X32010
Dm    =   XX0231
F     =   X33211 or 133211

enjoy :)

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.
