All Just To Get To You

Intro:  G  G  F  C  (repeat)

Verse 1:
       G
I have stumbled on the plains
G
Staggered in the wind
G
Stood at a crossroad or two
D
Cried to a river
D
Swept to the sea
G           C      G
All just to get to you

Verse 2:
I have flagged a yellow cab
Hopped a rusty freight
Sang till my lips turned blue
Flown a silver bird
On the tops of the clouds
All just to get to you

Chorus:
  C
I ran too hard,
  G
I played too Rough
  C
I gave my Love
    G
Not near Enough
  C
I bled too red
  G
I cried too blue
  D
I beat my fist
D
Against the moon
            C      G
All just to get to you

Verse 3:

I have run from St. Paul
To Wichita Falls
Call'd you from sunny Baton Rouge
Hocked everything
From my watch to my ring
All just to get to you

Chorus

Break:
Bb  Bbsus (repeat four times)
then hit:  C C C

Verse 4:
From the California Shore
Where the mighty ocean roars
To  the lands of the Hopi and the Sioux
I walked the desert sands
Crossed the Rio Grande
All just to get to you

Verse 5:
I have stumbled on the plains
Staggered in the wind
Stood at a crossroad or two
Cried to a river
Swept to the sea
All just to get to you

Repeat and fade:
G           F      C
All just to get to you
