[verse]
     F  C    F       C
When I awoke from my dream
 Am             G               F
Awakened by the darkness of the night
           C        F    C     Am
I was unprepared to be unseen
         G        F
I was prepared to fight
              Am                   G
The rains are bitter the winds are strong
       F            C              G         C
In the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song


[verse]
      F    C           F      C
I was unprepared in my animal state
   Am              G              F
To contemplate the cruel winds of fate
               C                          Am
And I'll say a prayer for those who carry on
         C                           G         C
Past the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song


[chorus]
           F
I'll fade away
           C
I'll fade away
     Am       G
In a glass of corn liquor
        F
And the memories of Eden
    Fm                      C
The memories of fire and of wine

[verse]
       C          F       C
One by one the procession passes
Am           G                   F
Later in the day we'll raise our glasses
          C         Am
To a good man now belongs
       C                           G         C
To the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song

[verse]
                      F   C
And I have a cabin of solitude
  Am               G                    F
I built it with my own hands it's quite crude
           C      F      C
Ain't much to it, this I know
      Am                   G                F
But I won't leave too much behind here when I go
                   Am                G
I'll be seeking my fortunes carryin' on
         F            C              G         C
Past the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song
            C                           G         C
Through the mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song
           C                           G         C
O'er these mountains of sorrow and the rivers of song
