Wasn t Born To Follow chords
The Byrds (Carole King/Gerry Goffin)

G C  2x

        G             C                  G                C
Oh, I'd rather go and journey, where the diamond crest is flowing and
G              C         G                C
run across the valley, beneath the sacred mountain and
D                        Dsus2 D
wander through the forest 
Where the trees have leaves of prisms, and break the light in colors,
     D                G        C G C
that no one knows the names of 

    G                   C              G            C
And when it's time I'll go, and wait beside a legendary fountain,
G               C              G                 C
till I see your form reflected in it's clear and jeweled waters;
    D                     Dsus2 D
and if you think I'm ready
You may lead me to the chasm, where the rivers of our vision,
     D         G     C G C
flow into one another 

G C  2x

       G       C                G               C
I will want to die beneath, the white cascading waters,
        G            C              G              C
she may beg, she may plead, she may argue with her logic;
    D                                    Dsus2 D
and then she'll know the things I learned
That really have no value, in the end she will surely know,
  D              G
I wasn't born to follow

G C  2x
