Verse 1

D5   D4  D  D2      G6          
  I list-en to the wind, 

       Asus7 A7 Asus7  D5   D4 D D2  G6   Asus7   A7 Asus7
To the wind  of  my   soul,

D5           D4  D   D2      G6         
  Where I’ll end up, well, I think,

    Asus7 A7 Asus7 D5   D4 D D2  G6  Asus7   A7 Asus7
Only God reall-y knows,

G       A            G    A   D  Em       G       Em       G   A4  A
  I’ve sat upon the sett-ing sun,   but never, nev-er, nev-er, nev-er,
G      A           G  A   D   D2  D
   I never wanted wat-er once-------, 
Em        G    Em  A    G  D5 D4 D D2  G6  Asus7   A7 Asus7  A7 Asus7
    No, never, nev-er, nev-er!

D5 D4 D D2  G6  Asus7   A7 Asus7  D5



Verse 2

D5    D4  D  D2      G6          
   I list-en to my words, 

         Asus7 A7 Asus7  D5   D4 D D2  G6  Asus7   A7 Asus7
But they fall far   be -low,

D5    D4 D   D2    G6         
   I let my music take me

         Asus7  A7  Asus7 D5   D4 D D2  G6  Asus7  A7 Asus7
Where my heart wants to   go,

G      A            G   A     D  Em       G       Em       G   A4  A
   I swam upon the dev-il’s lake,   but never, nev-er, nev-er, nev-er,
G         A              G   A   D   D2  D
   I’ll never make the same mis-take-------, 
Em        G    Em  A    G  D5 D4 D D2  G6  Asus7   A7 Asus7   A7 Asus7
    No, never, nev-er, nev-er!

D5 D4 D D2  G6   Asus7   A7 Asus7  D5
