About this tab version
Transcribed by listening to the recording. Capo first fret optional, depending on vocal range. Was this info helpful? Yes No
For the rhythm, think Native American: Heya hona, heya hona, with the emphasis on the 1

[Intro]
Bm//// //// F#m//// ////   Bm//// ////   F#m//// ////

    Bm////                F#m////                      
You think I'm an ignorant savage, 
           Bm////                F#m////
and you've been so many places I guess it must be so
    Bm////          F#m////    Bm////        F#m////
But still I can not see if the savage one is me
    Bm////          F#m////             Bm//// ////    
How can there be so much that you don't know, 
B//// ////         F#//// //// //// ////  (Changes from minor to major here)
      You don't know...

[Verse 1]
    B//// ////                     G#m//// ////
You think you own whatever land you land on
    B//// ////                         G#m//// ////
The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
      C#m////    G#m////          C#m//// ////
But I know every rock and tree and creature
      C#m////     F#////        G#m//// ////
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

    B                             G#m
You think the only people who are people
        B                              G#m
Are the people who look and think like you
    C#m             G#m            C#m
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
             C#m              F#             B   
You'll learn things you never knew you never knew

[Chorus]
         G#m//// ////                   D#m////   E7////            
Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
   G#m//// ////                      D#m//// ////
Or asked the grinning bob cat why he grins
        E////             F#////        B//// ////
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains
        E////              F#////        C#//// ////
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
        E////              F#//// ////            B//// //// //// ////
Can you paint with all the colors    of... the... wind?

[Verse 2]
     B                                 G#m
Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
     B                                  G#m
Come taste the sun sweet berries of the earth
     C#m             G#m               C#m
Come roll in all the riches all around you
        C#m        F#m                 B
And for once never wonder what they're worth

    B                              G#m
The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
    B                          G#m
The heron and the otter are my friends
    C#m        G#m               C#m
And we are all connected to each other
    C#m           F#              B
In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

[Bridge]
F#////  E////           F#////   B////
How     high     will a Sycamore grow?
       E//// ////            B//// F#//// ////
If you cut it down, you will never know

[Chorus]
           G#m//// ////                   D#m////   E7////
And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
    G#m//// ////                   D#m//// ////
For whether we are white or copper skinned
           E////             F#////        B//// ////
We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
        E////              F#////        C#//// ////
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind

Outro: (Slower tempo, sustained notes on the 1)
        E////             F#////            B////        E//// ////
You can own the earth and still, all you'll own is earth until
        G#m////            F#////   E////  F#////  B//// //// //// /(ends on the 1)
You can paint with all the colors...of...  the...  wind!
