Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

I Got A Name  Jim Croce

[D]Like the pine trees [A]lining the winding [Bm]road
[Bm7]I've got a [G]name, [A]I've got a [D]name
[D]Like the singing [A]bird and the croaking [Bm]toad
I've got a [E7]name, I've got a [A]name
[F#m]And I carry it [G]with me like my [D]daddy did  
[F#m]But I'm living the [Bm]dream that [E7]he kept [A]hid  
[F#m]Movin' me down the [G]highway, [F#m]rolling' me down the [B7]highway    
[G]Movin' ahead so [A]life won't pass me [D]by                    

[D]Like the north wind [A]whistlin' down the [Bm]sky
[Bm7]I've got a [G]song, [A]I've got a [D]song
[D]Like the whippoor[A]will and the baby's [Bm]cry
I've got a [E7]song, I've got a [A]song
[F#m]And I carry it [G]with me and I [D]sing it loud    
[F#m]If it gets me [Bm]nowhere, [E7]I'll go there [A]proud

Instrumental over verse

[D]Like the fool I [A]am and I'll always [Bm]be
[Bm7]I've got a [G]dream, [A]I've got a [D]dream
[D]They can change their [A]minds but they can't change [Bm]me
I've got a [E7]dream, I've got a [A]dream
[F#m]Oh, I know I could [G]share it if you'd [D]want me to      
[F#m]If you're goin' [Bm]my way, [E7]I'll go with [A]you

Use bar chords for this whole song and it's a cinch. If you know E, Em, A, and Am, you've got it made. Great bar chord warm-up song.
