Song: Wings of the morning Artist: Caedmon's Call Album: Share The Well (words and music by Andrew Osenga and Josh Moore) Copyright: 2004 The Velvet Eagle Sings / ASCAP (adm. by the Loving Company) / Joshmooreownsthis / ASCAP (adm. by Music Sevices) This is my basic idea for the song. Not perfect, but it works. I'm not sure about the standard tuning, and there might be some mistakes in the verses. Anyway here are the chords. Feel free to comment at the bottom of the page. - standard tuning / capo 3rd fret - 022100 E (in the chorus 079900) 002200 A2 (in the chorus 077600) 004400 A6/9 024400 B2 (in the chorus 099800) 046600 C#m INTRO-RIFF (played on the high e-string): E e-0-2-3-2-3--0-2-3 A e-0-2-3-2-3--0-2-3/5 VERSE 1: E A2 C#m B2 followed by the intro Riff VERSE 2 PRE-CHORUS ("The spark..."): A2 A6/9 B2 CHORUS: E A2 C#m A2 B2 INTRO RIFF (2x) VERSES 3/4 PRE-CHORUS CHORUS BRIDGE ("We will..."): C#m B2 A2 B2 INSTRUMENTAL: E (B2) A2 (B2) C#m A2 B2 ALTERNATE CHORUS: E A2 C#m A2 B2 INTRO RIFF (fade out) I woke to the sirens of the city They were calling me to hold my head up high But the truth was in the dust that hangs like curtains From the beggars to the sky The ads and billboards rained in every language The message every politician knows When weíre fed that we are nothing weíll believe it And then do what we are told The spark of the divine I see it in your eyes Itís there behind the lies that tie you down On the wings of the morning Hope is rising In the darkest night Your love and light prevail Ask any good detective, he will tell you Itís the eyes that always give the truth away And in yours I see the feat thatís bound and gagged you With no hope for escape Itís true that we are fallen as an angel But you and me, weíre also holy as a prayer Made in the image of a giver and a lover Who left His throne to come down here The spark of the divine I see it in your eyes Itís there behind the lies that tie you down On the wings of the morning Hope is rising In the darkest night Your love and light prevail We will rise on the wings of the morning Though we hide, hide in the shadows of the night There is hope, hope in the hands that have made us And are holding us tight... Hope is rising ... on the wings of the morning Hope is rising ... in the shadows of the night Hope is rising ... from the hands that have made us And are holding us tight ...
