Looking East
written by Browne/Young/McCormick/Thurston/Goldenburg/Lewak/Conte
from the album "Looking East"
tabbed 10/7/05


INTRO: C

Bb                            F                     C
Standin in the ocean with the sun burnin low in the west
       Bb                     F                            C
Like a fire in the cavernous darkness at the heart of the beast
        Bb                     F                             Am      
And my beliefs and possessions stopped at the frontier in my chest
       Bb                    F                       C
At the edge of my country my back to the sea looking east

          Bb                         F                        C
Where the search for the truth is conducted with a wink and a nod
          Bb                        F                    C
And where power and position are equated with the grace of God
      Bb                       F                                Am
These times are famine for the soul while for the senses it's a feast
         Bb                    F                       C
From the edge of my country as far as you see looking east


CHORUS:
Bb            F         Bb             F         C
Hunger in the midnight, hunger at the stroke of noon
Bb            F         Bb           F       C
Hunger in the mansion, hunger in the rented room
Bb            F    Bb           F       Am
Hunger on the TV, hunger on the printed page
          Bb                 F                             C
There's a God sized hunger underneath the laughing and the rage
       Bb                        C
In the absence of light and the deepening night
        Bb               F          C
Where I wait for the sun   looking east


BREAK: Bb  F  C    Bb  F  C


BRIDGE:
Am                           F                  C
How long have I left my mind to the powers that be
Am
How long will it take to find
Bb         G               Bb
The higher power moving in me


BREAK (do twice): Bb F
                  Bb F
                  Bb F F

Bb           F       Bb           F
Power in the insect, power in the sea
Bb           F            Bb   F
Power in the snow falling silently
Bb           F        Bb           F
Power in the blossom, power in the stone
Bb           F          Bb    F
Power in the song being sung alone
Bb           F            Bb           F
Power in the wheat field, power in the rain
Bb           F                Bb   F
Power in the sunlight and the hurricane
Bb           F        Bb           F
Power in the silence, power in the flame
Bb           F            Bb           F
Power in the sound of the lover's name
    Bb                   F                A
The power of the sunrise   the power of a prayer released
       Bb                   F                          A
On the edge of my country I pray for the ones with the least


CHORUS:
Bb            F         Bb            F         C
Hunger in the midnight, hunger at the stroke of noon
Bb            F        Bb             F         C
Hunger in the banquet, hunger in the bride and groom
Bb            F   Bb            F       Am
Hunger on the TV, hunger on the printed page
              Bb                 F                             C
And there's a God-sized hunger underneath the questions of the age
       Bb                        C
And in absence of light, in the deepening night
        Bb               F         C
There I wait for the sun   looking east


OUTRO: Bb  F  C  (repeat and fade)



A much easier way to play it is to put a capo on III, and play the following:

Bb  =   G
F   =   D
C   =   A
Am  =   F#m
G   =   E
