But, Im talkin’ to these children
          C          G
And Im keeping it clean
   G                 D
I dont need those words
    C          G
To say what I mean
       G                C
No, I dont need those words
    D           G
To say what I mean

 G             G/f#
Tear down the house
     C          G
That I grew up in
 G         D       C    G
I'll never be the same again
 G       G/f#         C        G
Take everything that I used to own
      G     D     G
And burn it in a pile
        G          G/f#
And, bulldoze the woods
     C       G
That I ran through
  G          D        C       G
Carry the pictures of me and you

This isnt tab doesnt show the exact finger picking but you get the notes! Lyrics: Souls like the wheels Turning, taking us with wind at our heels Burning(?), making us decide On what we are giving Change this way of living One little song Give me strength To leave the side and the wrong Buried safely in the past Where I’ve been living…a lie But I’m forgiving Let me go, let me go Let me go… One little girl, bring me Light from where I thought it was dark Be the spark that has a chance to Light the candle Love, that I can handle Let me go, let me go Let me go, let me go… Let me go, let me go Let me go, let me go… Souls like the wings Spreading out Away from bad memories Make us capable of taking off and landing Alive with understanding Let me go, let me go Let me go, let me go… Let me go, let me go Let me go…
