Intro

D--2-3------------2--2-0-----0-------0-0h2--|

C                              G                  C
I'm gonna sit on the porch and pick on my old guitar
           F                                    C
I'm gonna lay on my back and laugh at my lucky star
     F
And then I'm gonna fly away
     C
And never come back someday
          D                                            G
Unless I thought I would land right close to where you are

                   C              G                   C
Well if I thought anybody really cared I'd send back word
 F                                        C
Strapped to the leg of a trans-celestial bird
         F
I wonder if I ever really did leave
     C
How many would there be to grieve
           D                 G
How would they react to the word

Interlude

E----------------------3---------| (Repeat once)

        C                       G        C
Well I wouldn't want to hurt a solitary soul
        F                            C
I have still got all 6 foot 2 in control
            F
But when my obligation's low
      C
Is a greasy uphill road
     D                                     G     G7
And pleasin' everybody but me is my first goal,  Sooo,

           C                   G                  C
I want to sit on the porch and pick on my old guitar
          F                                    C
And just hope your hangin' loose wherever you are
             F
And for the joy you brought to me
      C
This song I sung for thee
         D                                     G
While I sit on the porch and pick on my old guitar
