I Can't Touch the Sun - Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show
written by Shel Silverstein


C
I can't reach the clouds for you,
F
I'll never touch the Sun for you,

I've never done the things
               C
That you need done for you.

I've streached as high as I can reach,
                    F
I guess I'm not the one for you;
      F                                     C
Cause I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun for you.
   F                                  C
No I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun.

C
I can't turn back time for you,
                       F
And make you sweet sixteen again,

And I can't turn your barren fields
    C
To green again.

And I won't sit around and talk
                          F
Of how things might have been again,
   F                                   C
No I can't turn back time and make you young again.
F                                   C
I can't turn back time and make you young.

F
I hope you find somebody who
F                   C
Can do the things I didn't do
F                  C
And find a road I didn't find
F                     F
And build a brighter world for you.
C
I hope you find somebody bold
F                    C
Enough to reach and take a hold
F                     C
And guide your ever changing mind
F                   F
And free your ever rising soul.
F             F
But I can't. No, I can't.

(back to first verse progression)
I can't look inside your mind
And see the things you're hoping for.
And I can't help you chase the dream
You're groping for.
You say your arms are open wide,
But lord knows who they're open for.
No, I can't know your mind or chase your dreams with you.
I can't chase your dreams or know your mind.

D
So say goodbye, and don't look back
                     C
I've had some happy days with you,
F                             C
Sorry I can't be the one who stays with you.

And when they ask about me,
                       F
YOu can say I was the one with you
    F                                       C
Who never reached the clouds or touched the sun for you.
    F                                     C
No, I can't reach the clouds or touch the sun.
              F
I guess it's done,
                   C
I can't touch the sun for you.

(repeat the last bit as necessary, and have fun.  It's a great song on their Sloppy 
album, or the Shel Silverstein CD)
