How To Play

Capo:7th fret

N.C.
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble, baby
N.C.
In this world there's a whole lot of pain
N.C.
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble
N.C.
But a whole lot of ground to gain
N.C.
Why take when you could be giving, why watch as the world goes by
N.C.
It's a hard enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

D       G               C            C
In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow
D       G               C            C
In this world there's a whole lot of shame
D       G               C            C
In this world there's a whole lot of sorrow
      Em          Em        C     C
And a whole lotta ground to gain
         C            C        G      G   Am          G/B       C    C
When you spend your whole life wishing,   wanting and wondering why
       D           G          C       C   Em        Em     C    C
It's a long enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly

D       G               C            C
In this world there's a whole lot of golden
D       G               C            C
In this world there's a whole lot of plain
D       G              C          C
In this world you've a soul for a compass
      Em          Em      C     C
And a heart for a pair of wings
          C           C     G    G        Am           G/B  C    C
There's a star on the far horizon, rising bright in an azure sky
        D           G                C      C   Em        Em      C    C
For the rest of the time that you're given, why walk when you can fly
