[Intro]
    Dm7                      C6
||: /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / :||[x2]


[Verse 1]
               Dm7                            C6
A world become one, of salads and sun, only a fool would say that,
             Dm7                             C6
A boy with a plan, a natural man, wearing a white Stetson hat,
Am7             Dm7          Dm7 *  Em7          Em7 *  Dm7
    Unhand that gun, be gone,      there's no one to    fire upon,
         Dm7                                  Am7
If he's holding it high, he's telling a lie------!


[Chorus]
               Dm7                   Am        Am/G    D9/F#
I heard it was you, talking 'bout a world where all is free,
                 F               C6                    C6
It just couldn't be, and only a fool would say that!


[Verse 2]
                Dm7
The man in the street, dragging his feet,
             C6
Don't wanna hear the bad news,
             Dm7
Imagine your face, there in his place,
               C6
Standing in - side his brown shoes,
Am7              Dm7         Dm7 *  Em7           Em7 * Dm7
     You do his nine-to-five,       drag yourself home  half-alive,
     Dm7                                     Am7
And there on a screen the man with a dream-------!


[Chorus]
               Dm7                   Am         Am/G   D9/F#
I heard it was you, talking 'bout a world where all is free,
                 F               C6
It just couldn't be, and only a fool would say that!


[Bridge]
E7sus4          E7     E7sus4 E7   Am   Am/G    Fmaj7
        Anybody on the street has murder in his eyes,
     Em7   Fmaj7   Am7                D7              Dm7/G    C6
You feel ...no  ...pain, and you're younger than you realise,
       Dm7                          C6        Dm7
Only a fool would say that, only a fool------------!


[Break]
 Dm7           Am7         Em7          Dm7          C6
| /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / | /  /  /  / |


[Chorus]
C6                 Dm7                   Am         Am/G   D9/F#
    I heard it was you, talking 'bout a world where all is free,
                 F               C6
It just couldn't be, and only a fool would say that...

[Coda]
          Dm7                          F                    C6 *
...Only a fool would say that, only a fool would say that!
