Children Of The Universe

John Denver

 Cmaj7Gm7
A Heritage of vision was given to us all
 Cmaj7
To smell the rose's fragrance,
 Gm7Fmaj7
to hear the songbird's call
 Fmaj7Cmaj7
To watch the distant moonlight
 Fmaj7Cmaj7
fill the coming of the tides
 Fmaj7Cmaj7
To understand that life is more
 Fmaj7Am
than always choosing sides

 GFmaj7Bb9
 Cmaj7
And some have seen what can be seen
 Gm7
Of sailing ships and kings
 Cmaj7
And some are given feet of clay
 Gm7Fmaj7
and some are given wings
 Cmaj7
Some must struggle just to breathe
 Fmaj7Cmaj7
 Some have a golden spoon
 Fmaj7Cmaj7
And some will never leave the nest
 Fmaj7Am
While some walk on the moon

And don't you know the life that lives within the silent hills
Is just as rich and beautiful and just as unfulfilled
As man with all his intellect, his reason and his choice
Oh who's to say the nightingale has any less a voice

The silver dolphins twist and dance and sing to one another
The cosmic oceans know no bounds for all that live are brothers
The whip-poor-will, the grizzly bear, the elephant, the whale
All children of the universe, all weavers of the tale

So palomino lie back down and dream yourself to sleep
The hawk flies with the morning dove, the lion with the sheep
As far away as you may go, we'll never be apart
It's in your dreams that you will know
The seasons of the heart
