           Happiness Runs
              Donovan
Patrick the Poet figured out these chords

To play in same key as on Barabajagal,
        Capo at the first fret

C               C/B 
Little pebble upon the sand,
Am                       Am/G 
  Now you're lying here, in my hand,
Am/F#      Am/F                G
  How many years have you been here?
C                 C/B
Little human upon the sand,
Am                           Am/G
  From where I'm lying, here in your hand,
Am/F#    Am/F                 G
  You to me are but a passing breeze.

    C                Am
The sun will always, shine where you stand,
C         Am             Em
Depending in which land, you may find yourself.
C               Am                G
Now you have my blessing, go your way.

Verse 1:

F         C     G        C
Happiness runs, in a circular motion,
F                  C              G       C
Thought is, like a little boat, upon the sea,
F         C             G          C
Everybody is a part, of everything anyway,
F                C               G            C
You can have everything, if you let yourself be.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C

Verse 2: Starting here begin singing in round (canon).

F         C     G        C
Happiness runs, in a circular motion,
F                  C              G      C
Thought is, like a little boat, upon the sea,
F         C             G          C
Everybody is a part, of everything anyway,
F                C               G            C
You can have everything, if you let yourself see.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C

Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.

F                  C              G      C
Thought is, like a little boat, upon the sea,
F         C             G          C
Everybody is a part, of everything anyway,
F                C               G            C
You can have everything, if you let yourself see.

Happiness runs, happiness runs.

Happiness runs, happiness runs.
F         C          G         C
Happiness runs, happiness runs.

Break:

F   C    G C
Why Oh?  Because.
F   C    G C
Why Oh?  Because.
F   C    G C
Why Oh?  Because.
F   C    G C
Why Oh?  Because.

As they repeat this final canon, some of the people switch to singing:
Thought is, like a little boat, upon the sea
After a short while all fade.

   C       C/B     Am     Am/G    Am/F#   Am/F     G       Em      F
