D------------------------|
A------------------------|
E------------------------|

Leaves were {D}falling just like embers
In colors red and gold they set us on {G}fire
Burning just like a {D}moonbeam in our eyes
{A}Somebody said they saw me
{D}Swinging the world by the {G}tail
Bouncing over a {D}white cloud
{A}Killing the blues{D}

Now I am {D}guilty of something
I hope you never do
Because there is {G}nothing
Sadder than {D}losing yourself in love
{A}Somebody said they saw me
{D}Swinging the world by the {G}tail
Bouncing over a {D}white cloud
{A}Killing the blues{D}


Instrumental verse (the way I like to play it)

{D}Now, you ask me just to leave you
To go out on my own and get what I {G}need to
You want me to {D}find what I’ve already had
{A}Somebody said they saw me
{D}Swinging the world by the {G}tail
Bouncing over a {D}white cloud
{A}Killing the blues{D}

{A}Somebody said they saw me
{D}Swinging the world by the {G}tail
Bouncing over a {D}white cloud
{A}Killing the blues{D}

Hi there, this song was written by a man named
Rowland Salley. Is it possible to correct this?
Thank you so much. Allison and Robert are just
performing their version of it.
