Intro:  G

	G		                                 Em             
I could while away the hours conferrin' with the flowers,

Consulting with the rain;

       Em				                                  D
And my head I'd be a scratchin' while my thoughts were busy hatchin'

if I only had a brain.

      G                                             Em             
I'd unravel ev'ry riddle for any individdle 

In trouble or in pain

         Em					                                D
With the thoughts that I'd be thinkin', I could be another Lincoln

if I only had a brain.


    C                                D                C                            G
Oh, I--could tell you why          - -          the ocean's near the shore,

	      D                                                    C
I could think of things I'd never thunk before,

	        E		    A
And then I'd sit and think some more.

  G			                            Em             
I would not be just a nuffin', my head all full of stuffin',

My heart all full of pain;

        Em			                                     D
I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry

If I only had a brain

(Whistle over verse chords)


(Last verse)

       Em			                                 D            
And perhaps I'd deserve you and be even worthy erv you

If I only had a brain.
