Amaj7 I turn you on, Emaj7 I tell you that I'm laughing just to keep from crying Amaj7 Emaj7 Pretty music when you hear it, Amaj7 Emaj7 Keep on trying to get near it. Amaj7 Emaj7 A little rhythm for your spirit D E Oh but that's what it's for G A Come on in, here's the door Amaj7 Emaj7 And I've seen a sparrow get high Gmaj7 Dmaj7 And waste his time in the sky Amaj7 Emaj7 He thinks it's easy to fly Gmaj7 Dmaj7 He's just a little bit freer than I Amaj7 Now here's a mystery Emaj7 And maybe you can help to make it clear to me Amaj7 When you're fast asleep Emaj7 Then what is it that's lighting up the dreams you see Amaj7 Emaj7 Only your tears can't conceal it Amaj7 Emaj7 And only your prayers may not reveal it Amaj7 Emaj7 You've got soul so you can feel it D E And when you make the scene G A Well you know what I mean Amaj7 Emaj7 Hey, I've seen a sparrow get high Gmaj7 Dmaj7 And waste his time in the sky Amaj7 Emaj7 He thinks it's easy to fly Gmaj7 Dmaj7 He's just a little bit freer than I Amaj7 Emaj7 Gmaj7 Dmaj7 x 2 Amaj7 Emaj7 Gmaj7 Dmaj7 Amaj7 Down here on the ground Emaj7 When you find folks are giving you the runaround Amaj7 Keep your game uptight Emaj7 And if you must just take your secrets underground Amaj7 Emaj7 Now politicians are trying to speech you Amaj7 Emaj7 Mad colour watchers are trying to teach you Amaj7 Emaj7 Very few will really try to reach you D E If you're lost in a stack G A That's OK, come all black Amaj7 Emaj7 Now I'd be the last to deny Gmaj7 Dmaj7 That I'm just an average guy Amaj7 Emaj7 And don't you know each little bird in the sky Gmaj7 Dmaj7 Is just a little bit freer than I Amaj7 Hey ordinary Joe Emaj7 Although they say you're just a lazy so-and-so Amaj7 What they think is real Emaj7 Is nothing but an animated puppet show Amaj7 Emaj7 So don't let time and space confuse you Amaj7 Emaj7 And don't let name and form abuse you Amaj7 Emaj7 Let that Big Joe Williams blues you D E G A In the light of the sun you can see how they burn Amaj7 Emaj7 Oh I've seen a sparrow get high Gmaj7 Dmaj7 And waste his time in the sky Amaj7 Emaj7 He thinks it's easy to fly Gmaj7 Dmaj7 He's just a little bit freer than i Amaj7 Emaj7 to fade Amaj7 xx7654 Emaj7 x76444 Gmaj7 xx5432 Dmaj7 x54222 Use at your own free will.......
