This is in the key from the movie of D.

[Verse 1]
        D              Bm7
I could while away the hours, 
       Em7              A7            
conferrin' with the flowers
       D                   D7
Consultin' with the rain.
       G           Em7         
And my head I'd be scratchin' while
my thoughts were busy hatchin'
     D               Em7  A7
If I only had a brain.

        D              Bm7
I'd unravel every riddle 
       Em7              A7            
for any individ'le,
       D                D7
In trouble or in pain.
         G                Em7         
With the thoughts you'd be thinkin'
You could be another Lincoln
     D                    D7    
If you only had a brain.

    G                        D 
Oh, I   --   could tell you why  
     Em7     A7       D      
the ocean's near the shore, 
         C#m7                F#7           Bm7
I could think of things I'd never thunk before, 
              E7                A       A7 
And then I'd sit and think some more. 

[Verse 2]
        D              Bm7
I would not be just a nothing
       Em7              A7            
my head all full of stuffin'
       D                    D7
My heart all full of pain.
       G           Em7         
I would dance and be merry, 
life would be a ding-a-derry,
If I only had a brain.
