City On The Hill Chords & Lyrics | Casting Crowns

Song: City On The Hill
Type: Chords and Lyrics
Artist: Casting Crowns
Album: Come To The Well

 Bm          D
Did you hear of the city on the hill?
      A                    G
Said one old man to the other
  Bm                       D
It once shined bright and it would be shining still
        A      G
But they all started turning on each other


       Bm                       D
You see, the poets thought the dancers were shallow
 A    G
And the soldiers thought the poets were weak
 Bm                              D
And the elders saw the young ones as foolish
 A   G
And the rich man never heard the poor man speak


Chorus:
    G
And one by one
   D
They ran away
    A
With their made up minds
      G
To leave it all behind
 G        D
And the light began to fade
     A
In the city on the hill
The city on the hill


Each one thought that they knew better
That they were different by design
Instead of standing strong together
They let their differences divide

Passage:

Bm   D   A     G
               And the world is searching still
Bm   D   A


Bridge:
  G
But it was the rhythm of the dancers
That gave the poets life
     D
It was the spirit of the poets
  A
That gave the soldiers strength to fight
    G
It was the fire of the young ones
    Bm
It was the wisdom of the old
    A
It was the story of the poor man
That needed to be told

Ending:

Bm   D A
                Come home
G
 And the Father's calling still
Bm D A
                Come home
G
 To the city on the hill
Bm D A
                Come home
