Beyond the Hill
Click Here for guitar tabs.

Have you ever wondered as you listened to the wind
What secrets she must tell you, what sad things she has seen
Well I've listened to her stories, thousand of times before
Still, I have to question her once more

What happened on that summer's day in ninetten-twenty-two
Has been talked about by many, but the truth was known by few
And those that kept her secret have been silenced by the years
But suspicions on the winds have reached my ears

Someone said somebody knew, but when he spoke he lied
Others said thay saw them talking on the day she died
When the darkness found her she was silent cold and still
And the body lay somewhere beyond the hill

Somewhere in some city, a grey-haired mother prays
Please God protect my angel in that land so far away
But tonight her only daughter lies asleep beneath the snow
In that winter land so far away from home

Then one dark december day, a mystery was unvieled
They found the poor young maiden there, beside a trapper's trail
Her body cold and lifeless had a bullet through the breast
Now the reason why won't let this poor soul rest

I have often wondered as I listened to the wind
What secrets did she tell you, what sad things had she seen
But those who knew the answer are now silent cold and still
And the secret lies somewhere beyond the hill
