STANDARD TUNING; CAPO 1.
Capo 1 matches song, I personally like Capo on 2 though.

Also, at the bottom, I'll put an easier version built off this one for any beginners.

You should also check out some fingerstyle versions of this song, which are pretty sweet.

right into PRECHORUS then CHORUS CHORUS 3 EXTENSION
C/G Fm6 Am7I....fl---y. I....fl---y. I....fl---y. (last lines of chorus)
Fm6/Ab C/GIf I just spre--ad my wing------s, I-- can fly. (I can fly!)
Fm6/Ab C/GI-- can fly. (I can fly!) I-- can fly.

Fm6/Ab C/GWoo! (I can fly!) (instrumental) Hu---m. Fly-y--------y.
**above (instrumental) is actually a nine note scale, but I couldn't really figure out how to play it. I think it might be a dorian scale. I play a D dorian scale cus it goes nicely with capo on 2, and play a C/G chord as the 9th note, which is the same C/G chord above "Hu--m."
