[Intro]

G
D    C    G
D    C    Cm    G


[Verse 1]

C    
Late the other day when the earth turned away
  G
I found a little book, nearly blended in the grey
            D                                 C
But for its flower, drawn like a child on the cover!
           D
It was the story of the Raven and the Mushroom Man
           C                   Cm        G
He was the first real friend he ever had


[Verse 2]

                Em                   D
I never want to be like that serious man
                     C                              C
Telling himself be a serious! Always counting those numbers!
           D
He’s got a red face and a mushroom head
             C                Cm       G
He spent too long in the rat race, too long in the dead days


[Interlude]

D    C    Cm   G


[Verse 3]

          D                  C    Cm
If only a Raven, with a sore wing
                  G                       D
Could fall at his feet, with eyes full of mercy
                               D                
The little Mushroom Man might fashion, a little splint out of 
C
driftwood
                                 G                           D
And he might feel a little light shine, he might see his own kindness
                      C*
And think that “Maybe counting isn’t everything!
                                 Am*               D*
Maybe there are more Ravens that need me more than numbers?”


[Interlude]

D    C    G


[Verse 4]

    C
The Mushroom Man loved the Raven so
    G                                            D      C
And deep inside his heart, grew a thing called hope (hope)
    Em    
One Sunday night, the raven was weak
   G                                      D
He didn’t wake up, how the Mushroom Man weeped!
                        C
It caused his planet to leak!


[Verse 5]

         C
Well, he buried his friend, and he buried his books
   G
He looked out to space, and his head he shook
   D
As he looked down,  gasp escaped!
  C
A sapling Rose grew from the Raven’s grave!


[Verse 6]

         C
From the Raven’s grave, hope had sprung!
    G
And he knew then, how it had been done
   D
As he’d tended to the Raven’s wing
  C
A Seed of Hope had grown within!
    D
And now it grows for all to see, 
        C                           G*
and his planet is no longer just he.


[Outro]

C     G   (x4)
D     C     Cm     G
