[Intro] 

|| C G/C | F9/C G/C ||

      C          G/C   Fadd9/C  G/C
There once was a note, pure and easy

C          G/C         Fadd9/C G/C      C  G/C  Fadd9/C  G/C C G/C  Fadd9/C
 G/C
Playing so free like a breath, rippling by


Fmaj7                  Dm6[or Dm/F]
The note is eternal, I hear it, it sees me,
Fmaj7                   Dm6     C  G/C  Fadd9/C  G/C   C G/C  Fadd9/C  G/C
Forever we blend as, forever we die

[chorus]
  C              Dm    F          G
I listened and I heard music in a word,

    C              Dm             F     G
and words when you played your guitar

    Dm               Em            G              Am
The noise that I was hearing was a million people cheering

G                        C/G         G7           C/G
And a child flew past me riding in a star

   Dsus4            D
As people assemble, civilization

   G                G7  C/G    G     G7  C/G G
Is trying to find a new way to die
    Am                Emsus4       E
But killing is really merely scene changer

Am                 Dm/F                 Am      Dm/F  Fmaj7/A Am
All men are bored      with other men's lives

[repeat chorus]

Gas on the hillside, oil in the teacup
Watch all the chords of life lose their joy
Distortion becomes somehow pure in its wildness
The note that began all can also destroy.

   Am          C/A (Am7)    Dm/F                   G/A
We all know success when we all find our own dream
And our love is enough to knock down any wall
And the future's been seen as men try to realize
Am         Am7/A         Dm/F    G/A     
The simple secret of the note in us all

Am     C      F    G

[solo]
[chorus]

[verse from demo]
[Today is the day when sound curdles mountains
Flowing and blowing each man it its wake
Destroying itself in the end with vibration
There's nothing on earth its challenge can take
Excepting one note]


There once was a note...  listen
      A    A     A/G      G D/F#
