Tied [F]all a[G]round his [C]neck
[C]He climbed [Em]up on [A]the ga[G]rage
[F]Figurin' what the [G]heck
[C]He screwed his [Em]courage [A]up so [G]tight
The [F]whole thing [G]came [C]unwound
He got a [C]runnin' [Em]start and [A]bless his [G]heart
He [F]headed [G]for the [C]ground
Well he's [A]one of those who [G]knows that life
Is [F]just a leap of [C]faith

And [F]always [G]trust your [C]cape

Tie all around his dreams
He's full of piss and vinegar
He's bustin at the seams
He licked his finger and checked the wind
It's gonna be do or die
He wasn't scared of nothin', Boys
He was pretty sure he could fly
Old and grey with a flour sack cape
Tied all around his head
He's still jumpin' off the garage
And will be 'till he's dead
All these years the people said
He's actin like a kid
He did not know he could not fly
So he did
