Hey Go Radio fans! This is "Birthday Song" as I figure it. I know there are
other versions that work, but I prefer this structure. To figure it out, I
listened to the bass line in the guitar that starts each little chord
arpeggio.

C: (x32010)  v[This is more convenient]
G: (320001)  G*: (355433) G**:(x20001)
Am:(002210)  Am*:(577555) ^[Use G* if you don't like this where I put it.]
Em:(022000)  ^[Gives the leading tone in the right octave. Same for G**]
F: (133211)


       C              G                    Am                Em
He was sitting on the back porch singing, "You're My Only Sunshine"
            F          G*                  C
Swinging to songs only he heard in his head
         C                 G                Am                  Em
Now he's cutting paper swords from boxes to hang inside his room
               F             G*                 C
And watch them spin into the wind above his bed


         C           G         Am      Em
Singing "Take me down this road I'm on
       F              G*              C
It's late and I don't wanna go alone.
C         G           Am
Take me down this road
  Em              F          G*                C
I won't be scared, 'cause we can't be scared."


        C                 G                         Am
And I'm searching for a sign that you're still here
            Em              F                      G*                 C
And I'm alright but now I'm down here on the ground I think I'll pray
       C               G              Am                   Em
'Cause Tallahassee's fine but, Dad, I miss you all the time
                    F                 G*
And I know you're gone, but not too long
              Am*                     G**
And I hope you fucking love your birthday song


          C           G         Am      Em
If you'll take me down this road I'm on
       F              G*              C
It's late and I don't wanna go alone.
C         G           Am
Take me down this road
  Em              F          G*                C
I won't be scared, 'cause we can't be scared."




     C          G         Am
It's 4:09, west over by a hill
              Em            F              G*              C
There is some clover and a bridge where my father lets me play
          C               G
And I was taking it for granted
         Am                Em
You were there to hold my hand and say,
             F            G*                  C
"Don't worry, son, 'cause this will be okay."


         C           G         Am      Em
Singing "Take me down this road I'm on
       F              G*              C
It's late and I don't wanna go alone.
C         G           Am
Take me down this road
  Em              F          G*                C
I won't be scared, 'cause we can't be scared."   Ohhh


           C       G           Am     Em
Singing "Take me down this road I'm on
         F            G*          C
It's late and I don't wanna go alone.
C           G       Am
Take me down this road
  Em              F
I won't be scared, 'cause we can't be scared."
