Recorded by Maureen McGovern, 1973 (#1)
From the movie "The Poseidon Adventure"

A                           E
There's got to be a morning after

F#m                           C#7
If we can hold on through the night;

E                            F#m
We have a chance to find the sunshine --

D              G                E
Let's keep on lookin' for the light.

A                               E
Oh, can't you see the morning after?

F#m                            C#7
It's waiting right outside the storm.

E                               F#m
Why don't we cross the bridge together

D          G                       E
And find a place that's safe and warm?


C                  G
It's not too late, we should be giving --

C                       Dm7  G
Only with love can we climb.

E                  B7
It's not too late, not while we're living --

E                          F#7
Let's put our hands out in time.

B                           F#7
There's got to be a morning after;

F#m7                       Eb7
We're moving closer to the shore.

F#                         G#m
I know we'll be there by tomorrow,

And we'll escape the darkness --

F#                        B
We won't be searchin' any more.


     B              F#           E    F#7

This chart is a variation (and not necessarily a good one) from one sent to my be frequent visitor Julio A.  from Sao Paulo, Brazil. His is probably truer to the original than mine -- but I can't play it. If you'd like to see his, e-mail Julio and he'll be happy to send it along.
