           Em                 C/G     Em
It was so late and shed be sleeping
                     D/F#
He came through her home town
                            C/G
With the moonlight on the crossroads
                             G    C/G  G
And the green light shining down
         Em                    C/G     Em
And the bell at the railroad crossing
                   D/F#
And the horn from far away
                      C/G
And his Silver Eagle passing
                           (G)
Half a mile from where she lay

        Em            C/G   Em
At his feet a sea of faces
                           D/F#
Make devotions with their love
                                  C/G   CMaj7/G  C/G
Clap their hands and plead their cases
                          G
Call for blessings from above
                  Em            C/G     Em
Like the rolling waves forever massing
                              D/F#
To crash and foam and creep away
                    C/G
And the Silver Eagle passing
                        (G)

             Em           C/G        Em
Road signs flow into the headlights
                        D/F#
Whisper names and fall behind
                            C/G      CMaj7/G
He finds some honor in the darkness
                              G
Hopes for grace and peace of mind
                  Em               C/G    Em
And he thinks of how theyd lay together
                                  D/F#
Hed run his fingers through her hair
                         C/G
And he wonders if shell ever
                          (G)
Come to know that he was there

View Just Lyrics...

It was so late and she’d be sleeping
He came through her home town
With the moonlight on the crossroads
And the green light shining down
And the bell at the railroad crossing
And the horn from far away
And his Silver Eagle passing
Half a mile from where she lay

At his feet a sea of faces
Make devotions with their love
Clap their hands and plead their cases
Call for blessings from above
Like the rolling waves forever massing
To crash and foam and creep away
And the Silver Eagle passing
Half a mile from where she lay

Road signs flow into the headlights
Whisper names and fall behind
He finds some honor in the darkness
Hopes for grace and peace of mind
And he thinks of how they’d lay together
He’d run his fingers through her hair
And he wonders if she’ll ever
Come to know that he was there
