C                        F
Almost felt you touching me just now
C                          G
I wish I knew which way to turn and go 
C                         F
I feel so good and then I feel so bad 
G7                      C       F       C
I wonder what I ought to do


Chorus:
F                               C
If I could only fly, if I could only fly 
             G                                  C
I’d bid this place goodbye and come and be with you 
          F                                 C
But I can hardly stand, and I got nowhere to run 
                G                       C
Another sinking sun, and one more lonely night

C                        F
Wind keeps blowing somewhere everyday
C                          G
Tell me things get better somewhere up the way 
C                         F
Just dismal thinking on a dismal day
G7                      C       F       C
And sad songs for us to bear

Solo over verse:

F                                C
If I could only fly, if we could only fly
             G                                   C
If we could only fly, there'd be no more lonely nights

 
C
You know sometimes I write happy songs
F
Then some little thing goes wrong
C                                   G     G7
And I wish they all could make you smile
C
Comin home soon and I want to stay 
F
Maybe we could somehow get away
G                                     C           F     C
And I wish you could come with me when I go again


Chorus:
F                               C
If I could only fly, if I could only fly 
             G                                  C
I’d bid this place goodbye and come and be with you 
          F                                 C
But I can hardly stand, and I got nowhere to run 
                G                       C
Another sinking sun, and one more lonely night


*I also like to play this without the capo using E, A & B7 in place of C, F & G.  I alternate playing E & A 
in standard open position with the following (kinda like how I've seen Merle do it playing live):

E  0x6454
A  x07655
B7 x21202
