[Intro]
G7

[Verse 1]
G7                                               C7
My friend Billy he was actin' kinda silly by the seashore
G7                                             D7
He started goofin', countin' all the grains of sand
         G7
About a thousand and thirty he was gettin' kinda dirty
       C7
And he looked at himself and he laughed
               G7                       D7                   G7
He said, "I'll never even finish what I got right here in my hand"

[Chorus]
             G7
He had a revelation, had a revelation
                                                              D7
He had some kinda knowledge comin' in from somewhere else for free
             G7                   C7
He had a revelation, special information
        G7                                 D7             G7
And I'm hopin' they'll be catchin' it from sea to shining sea

[Verse 2]
  G7                                                C7
A girl named Nancy started talkin' kinda fancy over dinner
G7                                                       D7
Usin' clever phrases she would always have to stop and explain
   G7
As each sentence ended all her guests were more offended
        C7
And she looked at herself and she laughed
               G7                   D7                    G7
She said "I'll never ever use those hundred-dollar words again"

[Chorus]
             G7
He had a revelation, had a revelation
                                                             D7
He had some kinda knowledge comin' in from somewhere else to see
             G7                  C7
He had a revelation, special situation
        G7                               D7             G7
And I'm sure they'll be catchin' it from sea to shining sea

[Bridge]
                C7                   G7
Well, there's a time and a place for everything
  C7                           G7
A way of standin' up and never tippin' your canoe
C7                           G7
Sometimes it's better if you just give in
D7
Never use a hammer on a screw

[Verse 3]
G7
Mister L. da Vinci said he wouldn't budge an inch he
       C7
Was convinced that someday humans would fly
             G7                                                      D7
He made some little paper aeroplanes to show them what he had on his mind
G7
Even men of learnin' would have rather seen him burnin'
         C7
Like the devil or the witch they thought he was
               G7                    D7                     G7
So he kept his big mouth shut and he didn't have to say goodbye

[Chorus]
             G7
He had a revelation, he had a revelation
                                                D7
He had some kinda knowledge comin' in from A to Z
             G7                     C7
He had a revelation, a pile of information
        G7                                 D7             G7
And I'm hopin' they'll be catchin' it from sea to shining sea

[Outro]
G7
