SPEAK TO THE SKY   (Rick Springfield, Seekers, et al)

Verse 1:
E
Speak to the sky when ever things go wrong 
                                       A           E
and you know you're not talkin' to the air, to the air,
        B               A              E
and the world will look better from up there

Verse 2:
E
Speak to the sky 'cause things can get you down 
                                        A            E
and you know when you're talkin' to the Lord, to the Lord,
         B              A             E
and the world will look better than before.

CHORUS:
B                       A                E
And if I stumble and it seems that I am blind 
B                       A                E
or if the road I'm on seems awful hard to find 
B                       A                E
and though my conversation doesn't always rhyme 
A                         B
I always try to find some time to .......

Verse 3:
E
Speak to the sky and tell you how I feel 
                                        A                E
and you know sometimes what I say ain't right - it's all right 
        B            A          E
cause I speak to the sky every night

CHORUS:
B                       A                E
And if I stumble and it seems that I am blind 
B                       A                E
or if the road I'm on seems awful hard to find 
B                       A                E
and though my conversation doesn't always rhyme 
A                         B
I always try to find some time to .......

Verse 3 (again):
E
Speak to the sky and tell you how I feel 
                                        A                E
and you know sometimes what I say ain't right - it's all right 
        B            A          E
cause I speak to the sky every night

Verse 1 for coda:
E
Speak to the sky when ever things go wrong 
                                       A           E
and you know you're not talkin' to the air, to the air,
        B               A              E
and the world will look better from up there
        B               A              E
and the world will look better from up there
         B               A              E
yes, the world will look better from up there.

I forgot to put it in the tab above, but Rick actually does this song in the key of A. You can use the transposer to get it into A - Just make sure the FIRST chord is A, and the song is then in A :-)

I've put it in in E, which is the way the Seekers do it (and also the way I do it, singing an octave below Judith Durham). While I can sing it in A, it really zaps the energy - I find E a lot easier to manage.
