BIG SKY- The Kinks

D  C  G (riff 1) F  C G (riff 2)

  D              C                G                          (riff 1)
Big Sky looked down on all the people looking up at The Big Sky
  F             C            G (riff 2)
Everybody's pushing one another around
 D             C                    G                      (riff 1)
Big Sky feels sad when he sees the children scream and cry
     F             C                     G 
But Big Sky's too big to let it get him down

(riff 2)                  D  C   G
Big Sky's too big to cry
(riff 2)                  D   C   G
Big Sky's too high to see
(riff 2)               D  C  G   F
People like you and me

 Bb  G    Eb      Bb
One day we'll be free
 Eb       Bb  Eb        Bb
We won't care just you see
Bb   G     Eb    Bb        Eb
Till that day can be don't let it get you down
     Eb                   Bb
And when I see that the world's too much for me
   Eb                                Bb
I think of The Big Sky and nothing matters much to me

 D               C                                   G
Big Sky looked down on all the people who think they've got problems
They get depressed and they hold their heads in their hands and they cry
The people life up their hands and they look up to The Big Sky
But The Big Sky's too big to sympathize

(riff 2)                 D  C  G
Big Sky's too up to cry
Though he would like to try
When he feels glad inside
Big Sky's too big to cry

 Bb  G   Eb      Bb
One day we'll be free
We won't care just you wait and see
Till that day can be don't let it get you down       Bb
