[Intro]
    Fadd9  C       Am7    G G4  G
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /__/  /  :||[x4]


[Verse 1]
         Fadd9   C   Am7  G G4 G
Well, I started out...
          Fadd9  C   Am7  G G4 G
...Down a dirty road,
 Fadd9   C   Am7  G G4 G
Started out...
  Fadd9      C   Am7  G G4 G
...All a - lone!


[Verse 2]
       Fadd9      C   Am7  G G4 G
And the sun went down,          
      Fadd9       C   Am7  G G4 G
As I crossed the hill,
       Fadd9      C   Am7  G G4 G
And the town lit up,           
       Fadd9      C   Am7  G G4 G
...The world got still!


[Chorus]
     Fadd9       C   Am7   G G4 G
I'm learning to fly,
         Fadd9       C    Am7   G G4 G
...But I ain't got wings,
Fadd9   C   Am7  G G4 G
Coming down...
           Fadd9    C   Am7  G G4 G
...Is the hardest thing!


[Verse 3]
          Fadd9      C   Am7   G G4 G
Well, the good ol' days...
      Fadd9       C    Am7   G G4 G
...May not re - turn,
        Fadd9        C    Am7   G G4 G
And the rocks might melt,
       Fadd9     C    Am7   G G4 G
And the sea may burn!


[Chorus]
     Fadd9       C          Am7       G  G4 G
I'm learning to fly,    (Learning to fly------!)
      Fadd9      C          Am7       G  G4 G
But I ain't got wings,  (Learning to fly------!)
Fadd9    C         Am7       G G4 G
Coming down... (Learning to fly------!)
          Fadd9     C       Am7        G  G4 G  
...Is the hardest thing! (Learning to fly-----!)

[Verse 4]

Well, some say life...    
       Fadd9      C    Am7  G G4 G
...Will beat you down,
    Fadd9        C     Am7  G G4 G
And break your heart,
Fadd9        C         Am7  G G4 G
Steal your crown!


[Verse 5]
          Fadd9   C    Am7  G G4 G
So, I've started out,
    Fadd9       C      Am7  G G4 G
For God knows where,
  Fadd9        C       Am7  G G4 G
I guess I'll know...    
      Fadd9    C       Am7  G G4 G
...When I get there!


[Verse 6]
    Fadd9        C    Am7   G G4 G
I'm learning to fly,
    Fadd9        C    Am7   G G4 G
A - round the clouds,
    Fadd9     C       Am7       G G4 G
But what goes up...(Learning to fly-----!)
    Fadd9     C       Am7       G G4 G
 ...Must come down!
