Gordon Lightfoot - Gotta Get Away


CAPO: 5th Fret



[INTRO:] D   F D   G D   F D   G

[VERSE 1:]
    D                           F
I'm on my way, I got no time to waste 
D                       F
Places to go, people to chase 
      D                       G
Gonna grab my comb 'n my toothpaste
D                         F D   G
Gotta get away from here


[VERSE 2:]
D                                   F
Twenty-one years from the day I was born 
      D                                      F
I was working on the night shift, tooting my horn 
        D                                 G
Through sheets of rain, through sleet and storm
                 F D   F
You come to me


[CHORUS:]
G
You were the girl with the summer sunshine 
Dm
In your eyes and in your smile 
G
You were the one I thought loved me 
       D           C                   G
It was something I never could quite believe 
D                         F D   G
Gotta get away from here


[VERSE 3:]
      D                             F
I'm a real bad loser, that's what I am 
      D                      F
Gonna grab my hat and my hexagram 
        D                            G
You can stick my money in an old tin can
  D                           F D   G
I think I fell in love again


[VERSE 4:]
      D                              F
I was down by the bus stop biding my time 
      D                                F
I was hitching a ride with a friend of mine 
      D                           G
I was almost gone, I was over the line 
         D                      F D   F
I said, "What's come over me?"


[CHORUS:]
G
You were the girl with the sound of springtime 
Dm
In your songs and in your voice 
G
You were the one I thought loved me 
       D           C                   G
It was something I never could quite believe 
D                          F
Gotta get away from here 
D                       F
Gotta get back to you 


[INSTRUMENTAL:] C D   F D   F D   F D   G D   F D   Bbmaj7


[VERSE 5:]
          D                                  F
I'm gonna make it today, I'm gonna get on my toes 
      D                                 F
Been awake so long I'm getting ready to doze
      D                         G
Gonna grab my bag and a few old clothes 
D                          F
Gotta get away from here 
D                      G
Gotta get back to you 
  D
I gotta get away, gotta get away 
F          D
Gotta get away, gotta get away 
           G
Gotta get away
