Intro: 2 beats per chord, let ring: F, Am7, Dm, Bb, C, F, F

Verses: 
Folks I know are acting strange              F, Am7
Shaking heads, saying I've changed           Dm
But I see that they're deranged              Bb
Losing what they thought they gained         C-Bb, C
Want to reap what they don't sow             F
Claiming what they do not own                Am7
Give them love, they still won't grow        Bb
So they'll never take my throne              Bb, C

And I, iei... oh, I... I I I,                F, Am7, Bb, Bb-C,
I'm moving on, moving on... moving on        F
I, iei..., I... oh, I, I'm moving on.        F, Am7, Bb, Bb-C, F   

Moving over wings of hate                    F
Crossing storms of jealousy                  Am7
Soon they all will dissipate                 Bb
Leave me with my dignity                     Bb-C
Many rivers we must cross                    F
In the end everything must pass              Am7
Give them my love like a flood               Bb
But they only want my blood                  Bb-C

So I, iei... I, oh I                         F, Am7, Bb, Bb-C
I'm moving on, moving on                     F
I, iei..., oh I, I I I, I'm moving on.       F, Am7, Bb, Bb-C, F

Bridge: 
     Moving on to higher heights                   C
     Leaving them to fuss and fight                C
     Leave them in the blinding light              Bb
     'Cause it seems they've lost their sight      Bb
     Going where the air is clean                  C
     Fulfilling a higher dream                     C
     Everything has got the time                   Dm
     You've got yours and I've got mine            Bb
     And I see the sun still shine                 Bb
     And I know the world is mine, mine, mine      C

I, iei, oh I, I I I                           F, Am7, Bb, Bb-C
I'm moving on, moving on, moving on           F
I, iei, oh I, I I I, I'm moving on            F, Am7, Bb, Bb-C, F

Hey, bye bye bye, bye bye bye bye                          F
Bye bye bye, bye bye bye bye                               Am7
Bye bye bye, bye bye bye bye                               Bb
Bye bye bye, bye bye bye bye                               Bb-C
Bye bye bye, bye bye bye bye                               F
I..., I'm moving moving moving moving on to life           Am7, Bb, Bb-C, F
Hey...                                                     End F
