(D)
Every hour of every day i`m learning more,

The more i learn the less i know about before,
   (G)                            (C)
The less i know the more i want to look around,
*C  G/B C G/B  G G/B
Digging deep for clues on higher ground.

Verse 1:
D                                 A                D
The moon and stars sit way up high,Earth and trees beneath them lie,
                               A                  D
The wind blows fragrant lullaby,To cool the night for you and i,
                               A          D
On the wing the birds fly free,Leviathan tames angry sea,
                             A              D
The flower waits for honeybee,Sunrise wakes new life in me.

Chorus 1:
D                             A         D
Every hour of every day i`m learning more,
                                    G
The more i learn the less i know about before,
                                   C
The less i know the more i want to look around,
                        G
Digging deep for clues on higher ground.

Verse 2:
D                               A                        D
The fishes swim while rivers run,Through fields to feast my eyes upon,
                         A               D
Intoxicated drinking from,The loving cup of burning sun,
                                   A                  D
In dreams i`ll crave familiar taste,Of whispered rain on weary face,
                                A            D
Of kisses sweet and warm embrace,Another time another place.

Chorus 2:
D                             A         D
Every hour of every day i`m learning more,
                                    G
The more i learn the less i know about before,
                                   C
The less i know the more i want to look around,
                        G
Digging deep for clues on higher ground.

Every hour of every day i`m learning more,
                                    G
The more i learn the less i know about before,
                                   C
The less i know the more i want to look around

NOTE:UB40`s'Higher Ground'is a song that makes perfect sense as a Song for Reggae Guitar!
(they are a Reggae/DUB band?)
Try strumming it and the A Chord makes it confusing,
But play that Reggae feel staccato chop and it makes sense.
Eg: in Verse||:D////|A//D//|D////|A//D//|D////:||
    in Chorus|D////|A//D//|D////|G////|G////|C////|C////|G////|.
