Rodney Crowell – Earthbound chords

[Verse 1]
G EmI could shed my skin and in the blink of an eye, I could fly, fly, fly
G EmTie my dreams up in a sack and lay my head down on the track and die, die, die
C GMy life's been so sweet I just can't stand it
Bm D Dsus4I must admit, I've made out like a bandit
[Verse 2]
G EmLast night's conversation with a real good friend of mine, drinkin' wine, wine, wine
G EmSaid, "Fifty years of livin' and your worst mistake's forgiven, just take time, time, time"
C GOne man's lust for life brings world reknown
Bm D GAnd the next guy can't get two feet off the ground, he's earthbound
[Chorus 1]
Em(Earthbound) Hear the wind throught the tops of the trees
G(Earthbound) Summer sun nearly ninety degrees
Em D Dsus4 D Dsus4(Earthbound) Big ol' moon sinkin' down, think I might stick around
GI'm earthbound
[Verse 3]

G EmShe was Irish Spanish mixbreed, I was southeast Texas hayseed, we were almost there
C GHer daddy did not like my kind around
Bm D GAnd true love took the next train out of town, earthbound
[Chorus 2]
