                          "Cryin' To Be Heard"
                              (Dave Mason)

Intro:

	(saxes, bass, and organ over verse chord progression)
	
Chorus:

	 D          Bb           F
	Somebody's cryin' to be heard
	             D    Bb                F    D/A
	And there's also someone who hears every word

Verse 1:

	 Am              D               Am               D
	Sail across the ocean with your back against the wind
	 Gm           C                Gm           C
	Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird
	     Am              D             Am                  D
	And when the rain begins to fall, don't you start to curse
	   Gm                 C              Gm              C
	It may be just the tears of someone that you never heard

[repeat chorus]

Verse 2:

	Reflected in the water is a face that you don't know
	And isn't it surprising when you find out it's your own?
	And so you try to find out whether it is friend or foe
	And what it wants to know, and what it wants to know

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	Well, you're wrapped up in your little world and no one can get in
	You sit and think of everything, then you wonder where you've been
	You put the blame on someone that you've hardly ever known
	And then you realize too late the blame was all your own
	 
[repeat chorus]

[repeat verse 1, call-and-response]:

	Sail across the ocean with your back against the wind
	      (sail across the ocean          with your back against the wind) 
	Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird
	      (listening to nothing    save the calling of a bird)
	And when the rain begins to fall, don't you start to curse
	             (and when the rain begins to fall       don't you start
                           to curse)
	It may be just the tears of someone that you never heard
	                  (it may be just the tears of someone that you
	                      never heard)

[repeat chorus]

Coda:
