The outro is like the intro, but ends with a strummed 550003 Here it is again with just the chords: Rhymes and Reasons John Denver (Intro: G C G Dsus4 G) G D/F# C G So you speak to me of sadness and the coming of the winter, Em Bm C D Fear that is within you now that seems to never end, G D/F# And the dreams that have escaped you C G And the hope that you've forgotten Em G D You tell me that you need me now -- you want to be my friend C And you wonder where we're going, G D Where's the rhyme and where's the reason Em G D And it's you who cannot accept -- it is here we must begin Am To seek the wisdom of the children... G D/F# C G/B D Dsus4 And the graceful way of flowers in the wind. G D/F# C G For the children and the flowers are my sisters and my brothers, Em Bm C D Their laughter and their loveliness would clear a cloudy day. G D/F# C G Like the music of the mountains and the colors of the rainbow Em G They're a promise of the future D G Am Dsus4 D and the blessing for today. G D/F# C G Though the cities start to crumble and the towers fall around us Em Bm C D The sun is slowly fading and it's colder than the sea G D/F# C G It is written: From the desert to the mountains they shall lead us Em G D By the hand and by the heart they will comfort you and me. C G D In their innocence and trusting, they will teach us to be free. G D/F# C G For the children and the flowers are my sisters and my brothers, Em Bm C D Their laughter and their loveliness would clear a cloudy day. G C D G And the song that I am singing is a prayer for non-believers Em G D C (intro) G Come and stand beside us, we can find a better way
