Skating Away

Jethro Tull

 CGFA
Mean while back in the year one,
 CGFA
 When you belonged to no one.
 CGFA
 You didnt stand a chance,son,
 CGFD
 If your plans were undone.
 DDsus4D
   
 GDGDG
 Cause you were bred for humanity and sold to society,
 DG
One day you'll wake up in the present day,
 Bb
A million generations removed from expectations
 DGA
 Of being who you really want to be.

 GDGDGD
Skating away, skating away, skating away,
 GCGCD
On the thin ice of the new day, ay e ay ay ay ! Ay ay ay ay !
 GD
 So as you push off from the shore,
 A
won't you turn your head once more, and make your peace with

 D
everyone.
 GD
 For those who choose to stay,
 AD
will live just one more day, to do the things they should've done.
 GEmAG
 And as you cross the wilderness, suspended in your emptiness,
 D
you feel you have to pray.
 GF
 Looking for a sign that the universal minds
 DA
 That's written you into their passion play.
CHORUS
 GDA
 And as you cross the circle line while the ice world sheets behind,
 D
you're a rabbit on the run.
 GDA
 And the silver splinters fly in the corner of your eye

 D
shining in the setting sun
 GEmA
Well, do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and in
 D
the present tense.
 GF
Or that everybody's on the stage, and it seems like you're the
 DGA
only,person sitting in the audience.
CHORUS +

 GDGDGD
Skating away, skating away, skating away.
Jethro Tull
