Tongues of Fire Chords

‣ John Mark McMillan
Capo 2 (D)
 
     C
The nights we spoke with tongues of fire
     F
The days we walked out on the wire
Am                G                 F
We were young and we were not afraid
 
     C
The angels whispered in our ears
     F
To tell us what the hilltop hears
Am              G               F
Beholden to the promises we made
     Am                G
When we were young and we were not afraid
 
Interlude: C - F - Am - G
 
C
River waters moved inside
    F
Our bodies like the ocean tide
    Am              G                   F
The spirit swam the hallows of our veins
 
    C
The years they roared like waves down on
    F
The rocky shores we stand upon
    Am               G                   F
And beat against our banks with iron rage
     Am                G                 C
When we were young and we were not afraid
 
F                  Am              G
We can still push up against those pillars
F                  Am             G
We can light those foxes tails ablaze
F                      Am             G
Nighttime still pushes up against the sun
      F                 Am          G
Where we grow young and we are not afraid
 
     C               F                 Am
And you, you gotta find your way back home
           G
Out of the woods
     C                     F
And you, you don’t have to hold your own
           Am                G
You gotta find your way back home
           F
Out of the woods
              F
They’re gonna smoke you out
              F
They’re gonna find you out
           C
Out of the woods
 
Outro: C - F - Am - G - C
