The Winds of Time
Words and Music by Mark Heard
on Ashes and Light by Mark Heard
Copyright 1984 Bug and Bear Music

Intro: F#  C#  B  C#  F#  C#  B  C#  F#

F#       C#          B      C#       F#
It takes more than a good intention
         C#          B       C#    F#
It takes more than a cursory line
         C#        B      C#
It takes more than mortal vigor
       G#m                D#m         
To withstand the winds of time (to withstand the winds of time)
    G#m                C#    F#  C#  B  C#  F#  C#  B  C#  F#
Withstand the winds of time

         C#           B           C#       F#
It takes more than an eager heart beating
         C#           B         C#     F#
It takes more than an enigmatic smile
         C#        B        C#
It takes more than positive thinking
   G#m                D#m
To stand against this tide (to stand against this tide)
   G#M                C#    F#  C#  B  C#  F#  C#  B  C#  D#m
To stand against this tide

(Chorus)
D#m                  C#sus4 C#  Bsus4 B  C#sus4  C#
It takes a saturated so  -  ul, o  -  h, o   -   h
      D#m                       C#sus4 C#  Bsus4 B  C#sus4  C#
And a faith that will never let g   -   o, o  -  h, o   -   h

(Guitar Interlude - play as verse 2 going into chorus)

(Chorus)

F#       C#        B        C#       F#
It takes more than mindless passion
         C#        B        C#    F#
It takes more than dogma in mime
         C#        B        C#
It takes more than virtuous fashion
   G#m                D#m   G#m   D#m
To stand the winds of time
       G#m                D#m
To withstand the winds of time (withstand the winds of time)
    G#m                C#    F#  C#  B  C#  F#  C#  B  C#  F#
Withstand the winds of time

(Ending - repeat and fade)
F#          C#        B    C#  F#
(It takes a saturated so - ul)
       C#        B        C#    F#
To withstand the winds of time
