Cross The Green Mountain
Bob Dylan
     x-2-4-4-3-2 (alternative to )

    I cross the green mountain,           I sit by the stream
    Heaven blazing in my   head, I   dreamt a monstrous dream
     Something came up         out of the sea
    Swept through the land of,  the rich and the free

    I look into the eyes,            of my merciful friend
    And then i ask myself,       is this the end?
   Memories linger,         sad yet sweet              and I
think of the souls  in heaven who will meet

   Altars are burning,         with flames far and wide
   The foe has crossed over          from the other side
   They tip their caps,        from the top of the hill
   You can feel them come,      more brave blood to spill

   Along the dim,      Atlantic line
   the ravaged land,      lies for miles behind
   The light's coming forward           and the streets are broad
   All must yield      to the avenging God

   The world is old,       the world is gray
   Lessons of life,        can't be learned in a day
   I watch and I wait,      and I listen while I stand
   To the music that comes         from a far-better land

   Close the eyes of our   captain,         peace may he know
   His long night is done,       the great leader is laid low
   He was ready to fall,         he was quick to defend
   Killed outright he was,         by his own men

   It's the last day's last hour,         of the last happy year
   I feel that the unknown        world is so near
   Pride will vanish         and glory will rot
   But virtue lives       and cannot be forgot

     The bells            of leavening have rung
   There's blasphemy        on every tongue
   Let 'em say that I walked         in fair nature's light
   And that I was loyal       to truth and to right

   Serve God and be cheerful,         look upward, beyond
   Beyond the darkness of masks,        the surprises of dawn
   In the deep green grasses         of the blood stained world
   They never dreamed of surrenderin',           they fell where they stood

   Stars fell over Alabama,         I saw each star
   You're walkin' in dreams,         whoever you are
   Chilled are the skies,         keen as the frost
   The ground's froze hard         and the morning is lost

   A letter to mother           came today
   Gunshot wound to the breast         is what it did say
   But he'll be better soon,          he's in a hospital bed
   But he'll never be better -         he's already dead

            I'm ten miles outside the city,      and I'm lifted away
     In an ancient light,         that is not of day
   They were calm, they were blunt,         we knew 'em all too well
   We loved each other more than       we ever dared to tell
