Intro: Hit an open G on the upbeat. 

C C F C F C G G 2x


F             C
 Whistles the wind
F           C
 Blowin' my way
F            C                  G
 Sweepin' me back, back here to stay
F               C
 Can winners be losers?
F                    C
 Runnin' on the same track
F                    C                G
 While some head for glory, others we crash


        C                  F            C
Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
    F         C               G   
The beauty in life where's it gone
    C                         F      C
And somebody told me you were doin' okay
    F         C               G
But somehow I guess they were wrong


F        C
 My isolation
F                       C
 Now there's a sobering thought
F          C                    G
 A minute alone, a lifetime too long
F                     C
 See the face in this mirror
F                 C
 So pale it could crack
F            C                    G
 Desperately wantin' the color it lacks


        C                  F            C
Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
    F         C               G   
The beauty in life where's it gone
    C                         F      C
And somebody told me you were doin' okay
    F         C               G
But somehow I guess they were wrong


       F
So you drank with the lost souls
    C
For too many years
F                        C
Tied to their ankles now crippled with fear
F                           Am
Never been righteous though seldom were wrong
G
Life's only life with you in this song


Am C F G 2x


F                       C
 Now there's an ocean between
F                      C
 Where I am and where I want to be
F                  C               
 So you prayers in doubt
              G
Doubt not for me


        C                  F            C
Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
    F         C               G   
The beauty in life where's it gone
    C                         F      C
And somebody told me you were doin' okay
    F         C               G
But somehow I guess they were wrong


        C                  F            C
Well it breaks my heart to see you this way
    F         C               G   
The beauty in life where's it gone
    C                         F      C
And somebody told me you were doin' okay
    F         C               G
But somehow I guess they were wrong


F             C
 Whistles the wind
F             C  
 Whistles the wind
F             C
 Whistles the wind
F             C
 Whistles the wind


              F
Though you'll find your way out
            C
But there's no goin' now
      F
Every woman and child
          C
Drags you down for the dive
         F
It's not safe being free
           Am
Can't give back what you feel
               G                        C
He said you'll always be in heaven with me
