Intro: F,  C,  Am,  G (this is the same pattern throughout the whole song)
-------
Verse 1:
-------
G       F       C     Am,   G
Well it started out,
G      F     C     Am,   G
Down a dirty road.
F       C     Am,   G
Started out,
F    C     Am,   G
All alone.

Verse 2:
--------
G       F        C     Am,   G
And the sun went down,
G    F        C     Am,   G
as across the hill.
G       F        C     Am,   G
And the town lit up, 
G       F       C     Am,   G
the world got still.
____________________________________________________________________________
Refrain:
--------
G   F           C     Am,   G
I'm learning to fly,
G     F        C      Am,   G
but I aint got wings.
F      C     Am,   G
coming down,
G      F       C      Am,   G
is the hardest thing.
____________________________________________________________________________

Verse 3:
--------
Well the "Good old days" may not return.
And the rocks might melt, 
and the sea may burn.
(short solo)

Verse 4:
--------
The senory life,
will beat you down.
And break your heart,
steal your crown.

Verse 5:
--------
So start it out,
for God knows where.
I guess I'll know,
when I get there.

Refrain. Repeat refrain.
(inst. break)
refrain, repeat.

I'm learnin to fly,
I'm learnin to fly.

End.

Enjoy!

Just as a side note, when playing this, the chords really go smoothly, what I mean is play them w/o breaks in between chords. The strum pattern is easy, as it keeps moving. Any comments at all will be accepted and I'll do my best to answer all your questions!
