Cat Stevens


Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
 Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
 Praise for them springing fresh from the world

Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven
Like the first dewfall, on the first grass
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass


Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning
Born of the one light, Eden saw play
 Praise with elation, praise every morning
 God's recreation of the new day


Repeat first verse

I think that first F in the intro should be an F#
cactuschris (report comment to admin):
I agree F#
grodhi96792 (report comment to admin):
In the 3rd verse, the Fm should be an F#m.

On the outro when I listen to the song it sounds like it should be:

C F G E Am F# Bm G D A7 D
