intro: Amaj7 Emaj7 Gmaj7 Dmaj7
       
       Amaj7 Emaj7 Gmaj7


Dmaj7              Amaj7
And for my opening line 
                  Emaj7
I'm not trying to indicate my state of mind. 
          Amaj7
I turn you on, 
                    Emaj7
I tell you that I'm laughing just to keep from crying 
       Amaj7          Emaj7
Pretty music when you hear it, 
       Amaj7          Emaj7
Keep on trying to get near it.
         Amaj7           Emaj7
A little rhythm for your spirit 
       D                E
Oh but that's what it's for 
        G              A  
Come on in, here's the door


 Amaj7                     Emaj7
And I've seen a sparrow get high 
 Gmaj7                   Dmaj7
And waste his time in the sky 
Amaj7                 Emaj7
He thinks it's easy to fly 
           Gmaj7                  Dmaj7
He's just a little bit freer than I

                  Amaj7
Now here's a mystery 
                  Emaj7
And maybe you can help to make it clear to me 
                 Amaj7
When you're fast asleep 
                      Emaj7
Then what is it that's lighting up the dreams you see 
          Amaj7          Emaj7
Only your tears can't conceal it 
              Amaj7             Emaj7
And only your prayers may not reveal it 
           Amaj7           Emaj7
You've got soul so you can feel it 
         D            E
And when you make the scene 
         G           A
Well you know what I mean 


    Amaj7                    Emaj7
Hey, I've seen a sparrow get high 
    Gmaj7                 Dmaj7
And waste his time in the sky 
Amaj7                 Emaj7
He thinks it's easy to fly 
           Gmaj7                  Dmaj7
He's just a little bit freer than I


 Amaj7 Emaj7 Gmaj7 Dmaj7     x 2
       
 Amaj7 Emaj7 Gmaj7


Dmaj7            Amaj7
Down here on the ground 
                        Emaj7
When you find folks are giving you the runaround 
              Amaj7
Keep your game uptight 
                     Emaj7
And if you must just take your secrets underground 
        Amaj7                 Emaj7
Now politicians are trying to speech you 
           Amaj7                  Emaj7
Mad colour watchers are trying to teach you
     Amaj7                  Emaj7
Very few will really try to reach you 
          D         E
If you're lost in a stack 
       G            A
That's OK, come all black


    Amaj7              Emaj7
Now I'd be the last to deny 
     Gmaj7               Dmaj7
That I'm just an average guy 
                   Amaj7                   Emaj7
And don't you know each little bird in the sky 
          Gmaj7                 Dmaj7
Is just a little bit freer than I

              Amaj7
Hey ordinary Joe 
                         Emaj7
Although they say you're just a lazy so-and-so 
                   Amaj7
What they think is real 
                  Emaj7
Is nothing but an animated puppet show
             Amaj7            Emaj7
So don't let time and space confuse you 
              Amaj7           Emaj7
And don't let name and form abuse you 
         Amaj7            Emaj7
Let that Big Joe Williams blues you 
       D            E           G            A
In the light of the sun you can see how they burn 

 
   Amaj7                   Emaj7
Oh I've seen a sparrow get high 
    Gmaj7                 Dmaj7
And waste his time in the sky 
Amaj7                  Emaj7
He thinks it's easy to fly 
            Gmaj7                 Dmaj7
He's just a little bit freer than i
