C/E F Am G I count the hours, you count the days together, Dm C G Am Am (strum) we count the minutes in this passion play. C/E F Am G Walk dusty miles, and I ride that train, Dm C G F (strum) on a first class ticket, just to be with you again. (Chorus) D G Am C Picking up tired feet, back from a far horizon, D G Am C Cleaned up and brushed down, dressed to look the part. D G Am C Fresh from God's garden, I bring a gift of roses D Am D C to stand in sweet spring water and press them to your heart.
