D                     A7 Em11 G69
  When I was a young man,   
GM6                Bm  A A11 
   I found an old dream
D                     A7     Em11 G69
  was as battered and worn a one, 
GM6                 Bm  A A11 
   as you have ever seen
D                        A7  Em11 G69
  and I made it some new wings, 
GM6                   Bm A A11 
   and I painted the nose
D                 A7  Em11 G69            GM6
  and I wished so hard,         up in the air, 
  Bm   A    A11
I ro...oh...ose, singin’

     D         DM6            C+9   D7sus2        D
     Carry me, carry me yeah, carry me, above the world
     D         DM6            C+9   D7sus2        D
     Carry me, carry me yeah, carry me.................

D                    A7 Em11 G69
  And I once loved a girl,   
GM6                      Bm A A11 
   she was younger than me
D                             A7          Em11          G69
  Her parents kept her locked up in their lives And she was
GM6                         Bm    A  A11 
cryin’, she was wishin’ she could be free
D                      A7         Em11  G69
  Of course I mostly remember her laughin’
GM6                             Bm A A11 
   Standin’ and watchin’ us play
D             A7 Em11 G69     GM6
  For a while then,       the music, 
      Bm        A       A11
would take her away and she'd be singin’

     D         DM6            C+9   D7sus2        D
     Carry me, carry me yeah, carry me, above this world
     D         DM6            C+9   D7sus2        D
     Carry me yeah, carry me, carry me, above the world

D                       A7 Em11 G69
  And then there was my mother, 
GM6                      
   she was lying in white sheets there
                 Bm   A     A11 
     and she was waitin’ to die
D                             A7         Em11 G69
 She said, “If you just reach underneath this bed, 
      GM6                        Bm     A  A11
and untie these weights, I could surely fly....”
D                              A7  Em11 G69
 She’s still smilin’ but she’s tired
GM6                      Bm   A    A11
 She’d like to hear that last bell ring
D                      A7        Em11  G69   
 You know if she still could she would, 
GM6       Bm  A     A11
stand up, she would sing

     D            DM6            C+9   D7sus2        D
     Carry me, oh carry me, oooh carry me, above the world
     D              DM6            C+9   D7sus2        D
     carry me, oooh carry me yeah  oooo-ooh
     C+9   D7sus2            C+9   D7sus2        D
     oooo-ooh,     oo-oohoo, oooo-ooh,       hoo-hoo
