THE LONG WAIT

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter



         INTRO:  Em - C - Bm - Em


                 Em                    C  G
             I.  when the long wait is over,
                 Em                       G
                 crowds will dance in the street.
                        C               Gm               D      B7
                 you'll turn around and smile on all you meet.


                 Em                  C  G
            II.  there'll be no consolation,
                 Em            G
                 no sins to console.
                     C                 Gm                D      B7
                 and all your tears of lead will turn to gold.


                 C#m
        BRIDGE:  hurry now:
                     G#m
                 the moment will be here.
                 A
                 slower now:
                    F#7
                 so I can hold it near
                   Fmaj7       Em
                 before I disappear.


                 /// REPEAT INTRO ///


  INSTRUMENTAL:  like verse


                 Em                C   G
           III.  at the top of the mountain,
                 Em                G
                 the climber still climbs -
                     C                  Gm              D      B7
                 and tries to plant the flag a few more times.


                 Em                        C  G
            IV.  but when the long wait is over,
                 Em                  G
                 there is nowhere to go.
                 C             Gm                 D      B7
                 even the four winds may cease to blow.


                 /// REPEAT BRIDGE ///


        ENDING:  Em - C - Bm  (repeat several times, ad lib vocal)
                 Em - C - G
