[Intro] [F  C  Am   G] X 4


[Verse]
F              C   Am  G  F             C   Am   G
Well I started out,       down a dirty road
F       C  Am   G     F     C  Am   G
Started out           all alone
F                C   Am   G  F                C    Am  G  
And the sun went down,       as I crossed the hill
F               C   Am  G    F              C   Am  G  
As the town lit up,          the world got still


[Chorus]
F               C   Am  G   F               C    Am  G  
I’m learning to fly,        but I ain’t got wings
F      C   Am  G   F              C    Am  G  
Coming down        is the hardest thing


[Verse]
F                 C   Am  G   F        C   Am   G
Well the good ol’ days,       may not return
F                 C   Am  G  F               C   Am   G
And the rocks may melt       and the sea may burn


[Chorus]
F               C   Am  G   F               C    Am  G  
I’m learning to fly,        but I ain’t got wings
F      C   Am  G   F              C    Am  G  
Coming down        is the hardest thing

(solo)


[Verse]
F             C   Am  G   F             C   Am   G
Well some say life        will beat you down,
F          C    Am  G   F          C    Am   G
Break your heart,       steal your crown
F            C   Am  G   F             C   Am   G
So I started out,        for god knows where
F            C   Am  G   F          C   Am   G
I guess I’ll know        when I get there


[Chorus]
F               C   Am  G   F          C      Am  G  
I’m learning to fly,        around the clouds,
F             C   Am  G   F         C    Am  G  
But what goes up          must come down

excellent tab my friend, very nice, easy song to learn, play, and sing. It sounds amazing on a 12 string.
