The Logical Song

Supertramp

 CmG#maj7Gm7
 When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful,
 A#Fm7/G#F7/A
miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical.
 CmG#maj7Gm7
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily,
 A#Fm7/G#Am7b5
joyfully, playfully watching me.

 CmG#maj7Gm7
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible,
 A#Fm7/G#F7/A
logical, responsible, practical.
 CmG#maj7Gm7
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable,
 A#Fm7/G#Am7b5
clinical, intellectual, cynical.

 EbAm7b5/Eb
There are times when all the world's asleep,
 G#maj7
the questions run too deep
 C#C#maj7/CA#m7A#m7/G#
for such a simple man.              

 EbAm7b5/Eb
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
 G#maj7
I know it sounds absurd
 C#C#maj7/CA#m7A#m7/G#
but please tell me who I am.               

Repeat same sequence of chords on the following verse

Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical,
liberal, fanatical, criminal.
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're
acceptable, respecable, presentable, a vegtable!

At night, when all the world's asleep,
the questions run so deep
for such a simple man.
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
(C# C#maj7/C A#m7 A#m7/G#) x 3
but please tell me who I am.
