Chords
Transpose:
   
Well here it is, my first tab( and probably last!). Had to write up all the lyrics 
too so you lot better enjoy it! Didn't realize this tabbing stuff is hard work....

Great song from talented Irishman. Well done Declan!



Tips:
The B minor in the verse has no root note. You can also use  D chord instead of Bm if you prefer. 
I mix up this song with bar and higher chords etc to get the sound right. If 
you've got some money from the dole buy his cd and support Declan O Rourke!!

enjoy:-)



Verse 1:
A D A D A Bm AIf I was a bolt of lightning I would shoot right down and split the sky
A D A D A Bm A in two and I would be so bright i would light up the darkest night
Bm A Bm AWell maybe I'll come back as one, i think it would be lots of fun
Bm A Bm ATo zap the earth and strike the sea with a billion bolts of energy
(count 6 beats I think!) Verse 2:
A D A D A Bm AAnd if I was a bird out on the wing the sweetest song you'd hear me sing
A D A D A Bm AI would whistle sounds like secret words in a language no ones ever heard
Bm A Bm AThe tune around your ear would ring so mesmerizing you would think
Bm A Bm A that I was something quite absurd, more like an angel than a bird
(count 6 beats) Chorus:
A C#m D C#m BmBut today I don't want to be anything else but myself
D ACause today i am a little bit of all these things
D ATheres a little bit of all these things in me
D AI got all right here in my hand
D Ai'm a lightning, bird, wind, river, man.
(count 6 beats) Verse 3:
A D A D A Bm AAnd if I was a gust of wind i'd blow around the world three times or so
A D A D A Bm AI would pick up half and million leaves and make a sculpture on the breeze
Bm A Bm ASo beautiful that god himself would want to know how do as well
Bm A Bm AHed'd offer me a handsome price just to be the wind in paradise
(count 6 beats) Verse 4:
A D A D A Bm AAnd if I was a river I would be a raging river wild and free
A D A D A Bm AI would find my way around anything just to get where I was going
Bm A Bm ASo treacherous would be my rath you'd never try to cross my path
Bm A Bm AI'd run so fast into the sea, you'd see the waves from mercury
(count 6 beats) Chorus:
A C#m D C#m BmBut today I don't want to be anything else but myself
D ACause today i am a little bit of all these things
D ATheres a little bit of all these things in me
D AI got all right here in my hand
D Ai'm a lightning, bird, wind, river, man.
(count 6 beats) Chorus:
A C#m D C#m BmYes today I don't want to be anything else but myself
D ACause today i am a little bit of all these things
