lyrics

That Other Shore

4/4 fingerpicking,

G
I’m gonna work a little harder
D G
I am going to give a little more

I’m gonna see my mother and father
D G
When I reach that other shore

I’m gonna listen a little better
I’m gonna talk a little less
I know this life won’t last forever
I’m gonna try and do my best

C
I am going sing a little louder
G

I’m going laugh a little more
A7
I’m going to feel a little deeper
D7
Till I reach that other shore

I’m gonna plant seeds for tomorrow
Lets make Peace instead of war
The time we have is only borrowed
Till we reach that other shore

(Instrumental over Verse)

I’m gonna breathe a little fuller
I’m gonna find what I’m searching for
I’m gonna share what I’ve got with you
Till we reach that other shore

I’m gonna smile a little wider
I’m gonna dance a little more
I’ll be glad to walk beside you
Till we reach that other shore

I’m gonna work a little harder
I am going to give a little more
I’m gonna see my mother and father
When I reach that other shore
