Well here it is, my first tab( and probably last!). Had to write up all the lyrics 
too so you lot better enjoy it! Didn't realize this tabbing stuff is hard work....

Great song from talented Irishman. Well done Declan!



Tips:
The B minor in the verse has no root note. You can also use  D chord instead of Bm if you prefer. 
I mix up this song with bar and higher chords etc to get the sound right. If 
you've got some money from the dole buy his cd and support Declan O Rourke!!

enjoy:-)



Verse 1:
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
If I was a bolt of lightning I would shoot right down and split the sky
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
 in two and I would be so bright  i would light up the darkest night
          Bm                A          Bm                    A
Well maybe I'll come back as one, i think it would be lots of fun
          Bm                A          Bm                    A
To zap the earth and strike the sea with a billion bolts of energy


(count 6 beats I think!)

Verse 2:
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
And if I was a bird out on the wing the sweetest song you'd hear me sing
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
I would whistle sounds like secret words in a language no ones ever heard
          Bm                A          Bm                    A
The tune around your ear would ring so mesmerizing you would think
         Bm                A          Bm                    A
 that I was something quite absurd, more like an angel than a bird

(count 6 beats)


Chorus:
      A      C#m             D            C#m         Bm
But today I don't want to be anything else but myself
        D                       A
Cause today i am a little bit of all these things
        D                         A
Theres a little bit of all these things in me
     D                   A
I got all right here in my hand
     D                       A
i'm a lightning, bird, wind, river, man.

(count 6 beats)

Verse 3:
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
And if I was a gust of wind i'd blow around the world three times or so
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
I would pick up half and million leaves and make a sculpture on the breeze
         Bm                A          Bm                    A
So beautiful that god himself would want to know how do as well
         Bm                A          Bm                    A
Hed'd offer me a handsome price just to be the wind in paradise


(count 6 beats)

Verse 4:
       A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
And if I was a river I would be a raging river wild and free
      A            D       A        D           A            Bm       A
I would find my way around anything just to get where I was going
           Bm                A          Bm                    A
So treacherous would be my rath you'd never try to cross my path
          Bm                A          Bm                    A
I'd run so fast into the sea, you'd see the waves from mercury

(count 6 beats)


Chorus:
      A      C#m             D            C#m         Bm
But today I don't want to be anything else but myself
        D                       A
Cause today i am a little bit of all these things
        D                         A
Theres a little bit of all these things in me
     D                   A
I got all right here in my hand
     D                       A

      A      C#m             D            C#m         Bm
Yes today I don't want to be anything else but myself
        D                       A
Cause today i am a little bit of all these things
        D                         A
Theres a little bit of all these things in me
     D                   A
I got all right here in my hand
     D                       A
i'm a lightning, bird, wind, river, man.n.
