Subject: Chord Req: Till the Mountains Disappear
From: GUEST,Iona

I know it's more country than folk, but I've heard it sung the folk way, so I'll go out on a limb and ask....

Can anybody help me with chords to "Till the Mountains Disappear"? I think Josh Hogan's recording is the most widely known.

Thanks so much!

Well, I can't do chords, but here's the lyrics:

'Til The Mountains Disappear
Lyrics by Paul Overstreet and Don Schlitz

Well I have walked with my arm around your shoulder
And I've placed a golden ring upon your hand
Now my heart is telling me I should be bolder
And take you to the highest place that you have ever been
And say it all again

I'll pledge my love to you on top of a mountain
And I'll say it loud enough for all the world to hear
We'll let it echo through the deepest darkest canyons
And I will be your companion 'til the mountains disappear

Now the seasons will change down in the valley
Like the heart of a fair weather friend
But if ever for one moment you should doubt me
Then I will just start climbing through the snow and through the wind
And say it all again

I'll pledge my love to you on top of a mountain
And I'll say it loud enough for all the world to hear
We'll let it echo through the deepest, darkest canyons
And I will be your companion 'til the mountains disappear

I'll pledge my love to you on top of a mountain
And I'll say it loud enough for all the world to hear
We'll let it echo through the deepest, darkest canyons
And I'll be your companion 'til the mountains disappear

Yes, I'll be your companion 'til the mountains disappear

Here's one with chords on screen as the video goes: https://play.riffstation.com/?v=DczZBgCJuPs

If you need to, someone can write them down on a set of lyrics.

I've listened to the recording plenty of times, and I know the lyrics, but I'm new to guitar and I don't know how to figure out what chords to play just by listening. :/

Thank you for the riffstation link. I'll try that.

Um. I hope Iona comes back.

There are two recordings of this song on YouTube, one by John Hogan and one by Paul Overstreet. I have spent some time checking the versions out, and the Hogan recording is in four flats (Ab) and the Overstreet recording is in four sharps. (E)

Listening to Paul Overstreet and figuring out chords in E is going to work better than trying to play guitar in Ab. Try E, A, B, F#m and (perhaps) C#m and G#m. Ignore the first three short notes and start with an E chord on "walked."

Once you figure out Paul Overstreet's chords, get with a musician and learn how to change the key to suit yourself, unless you know already.

I suppose the chords noted on the riffstation site (Hogan) were generated by a computer. They have two problems. One is that they are a funny mixture of sharps and flats, with Bbm being followed by C#, for example. Another is that there are too many of them. We don't need a chord for every note.
