Walking In The Wind chords
Traffic (Jim Capaldi, Steve Winwood)

D G 2x *

    D
You walk and talk and move around in circles
     G                                 D   (D G)
Your friends telling you you are doing fine
D                                 G
You can't see that snowball as it hurtles 
                                        D    (D G)
Through the shattered membranes of your mind
           D                        G
If I could talk to you for just one minute
                                            D  (D G)
Then you would know what it is I am getting at
    D                                   G
But there again your head's got nothing in it
                                 D  (D G)
By the way you left without your hat

Em                 A                   Em A                       
I'm walking in the wind looking at the sky
Em                                Bb     D
Hanging on a breeze and wondering why, why

D G 2x

     D
Your old man's headed for the final pay-off
    G                            D  (D G)
The joker that you got is fading too
    D
And all the sharks that come around for the rip-off 
          G                        D  (D G)
Are gonna tear the flesh right off you
    D                                  
The plastic princess hangs her head in wonder 
       G                D   
at the silver glittered boys
D                    G
Trying, trying to compete
    D                              
And all at once the room begins to thunder 
    G                                   D    (D G)
And all that's left is the stain on the sheet

Em                 A                   Em A                       
I'm walking in the wind looking at the sky
Em                                Bb     D
Hanging on a breeze and wondering why, why

D G 2x

    D
The prostitute is standing on the corner
G                               D   (D G)
Suffering so much pain to stay alive
D
She's so real, that life itself bows down before her
             G                 D   (D G)
She couldn't make that nine to five
          D
While the president is crying, crying in the White House
    G                               D    (D G)
The prime minister's really got the blues
D
All the heads of state are busy playing cat & mouse
                   G                                 D   (D G)
'Cause you can see none of them have ever paid their dues

Em                 A                   Em A                       
I'm walking in the wind looking at the sky
Em                                Bb     D
Hanging on a breeze and wondering why, why

D         G    D    G
God knows why, why, why 

D G . . . .
