Letra de The Great Divide





The G and F chords in the song are actually played as E chord shapes on the

second and fourth frets respectively, with the other strings left open, thus:



EADGBe

G: 055400





Other chords used:



EADGBe

Am (5th fret) : 577655

C : 335553

C#maj7 : 446564



If you're playing this acoustic, you can also use open chords:



Am (1st fret) : 002210

C : 332010



Guitar 1 plays this throughout the intro and choruses:



E|------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------|

G|--5b-(let ring)--6b-3b--(let ring)--|

D|------------------------------------|

A|------------------------------------|

E|------------------------------------|



Guitar 2 plays the following chords during the intro and the choruses:



Am(Vth fret) C F5 G5 (twice) and then end on F5



With that out of the way, let's get to the song itself:



The Great Divide

Lyrics: Geoff Tate

Music: Michael Wilton (who once again constructs a truly memorable song out

of simple elements!)



Intro:



Guitar 1 plays alone for 2 bars.

Then Guitar 2 (along with bass and drums) enters for another 2 bars,

finally ending on an F5 chord (let it ring!)



Verse 1:



(Strum C#maj7 once each time and let ring, until the "south", when you should

switch to a distorted tone and play F5 continuously.)



C#maj7

I'd reconciled my anger, got outside of danger,

C#maj7

I was waiting for some signal, a sign from angels.

C#maj7

When the tide turns against you

C#maj7

it's a strange sensation, a revelation of imagination.

C#maj7

I could change my course and face the flow,

C#maj7 F5

reap the seeds that I had sewn or follow that old river south

F5 G5

Here's what I found out...



Chorus:



Guitar 1 plays exactly the same riff as the intro.



Guitar 2 plays distorted chords as follows:



Am C F5 G5 Am C F5 G5

I was standing on the Great Divide looking out across America.

Am C F5 G5

Trying to find my truth, define it for myself.

Am C F5

I died the day when I saw this place.

F5 G5 F5 G5

I saw what I could lose.



Verse 2 is exactly the same as verse 1:



C#maj7

A very simple mechanism separates the fool from wisdom.

C#maj7

The lines between us are not real.

C#maj7

Conditioning is what makes us feel ignorant.

F5

And apathy will feed our hate.

So we can never give in.



Chorus and end:



Am C F5 G5 Am C F5 G5

There I was standing at the Great Divide, looking for the truth in America.

Am C F5 G5

For all that time I searched, when I closed my eyes,

Am C

I found the thing I was looking for.

F5 G5 F5 G5 F5

I had it all the time.



and then repeat:



So are we standing at the Great Divide?

Is there hope for America?

Take the flag we wave, the freedoms that we sing.

Without respect for one another,

it doesn't mean a thing....
