I got a name

Jim Croce



 EBG#
                           Like the pine trees windin on down the road
 G#ABE
 I got a name, I got a name
 EBG#
 Like the singin bird and the croakin toad
 G#ABE
 I got a name, I got a name
 EBG#
 And I carry it with me like my daddy did
 G#ABE
 But I'm livin a dream that he can't give
 BC#
 Movein me down the highway, Rollin me down the highway
 EE
 Movein ahead so life won't pass me by
Rest of lyrics:
Like a north wind whistlin down the sky
I got a song, I got a song
Like the whipperwill and the baby's cry
I got a song, I got a song
And I carry it with me and I'll sing it loud
If it gets me nowhere, I'll go there proud
Movein...Rollin..Movein ahead...
-solo-
And I'm gonna go there free...
Like a fool I am and will always be
I got a dream, I got a dream
They can change their mind but the can't change me
I got a dream, I got a dream
I know I could share it if you want me to
If you're goin my way, I'll go with you
Movein...Rollin..Movein ahead...
