Reaching for you through that stormy cloud

Now here we are gathered in our little home town

Rounding third to score the winning run

You always played with passion no matter what the game

When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

Verse 3

Now the oak trees a-swaying in the early autumn breeze

The golden sun is shining on my face
G                           C/G          G
Tangled thoughts I hear the mocking bird sing

This old world really ainít that bad a place

But I do have one burning question

Itís just not like you to walk away in the middle of a song

Your beaut - i - ful song

     G       D/G  C  Dsus        D   G
Your absolutely      beaut Ė i - ful song


This is my interpretation of the song and is what I hear. Since
U-G doesn't always include the correct chord voicings, I have
included all of them in this transcription. Please feel free to
experiment with your own chord voicings. 

In order to play the D/G, you may need to use your thumb to fret
the G on the 6th string, 3rd fret.
