Flesh And Blood  Johnny Cash



* Capo on the second fret

B[G]eside a singin'[C] mountain strea[G]m where the willow grew
Where the [C]silver leaf of [G]maple sparkled [A7]in the mornin'[D] dew
I [G]braided twigs of [C]willow, made a [G]string of buckeye beads
But [C]flesh and blood needs [G]flesh and blood [C]and you're the one I [G]need
[C]Flesh and blood needs [G]flesh and blood [C]and you're the one I [G]need

I leaned against the bark of birch and I breathed the honeydew
I saw a northbound flock of geese against a sky of baby blue
Beside the lily pads I carved a whistle from a reed
Mother Nature's quite a lady, but you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you're the one I need

Interlude: C and G x4

A cardinal sang just for me and I thanked him for the song
Then the sun went slowly down the west and I had to move along
These were some of the things on which my mind and spirit feed
But flesh and blood needs flesh and blood but you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you're the one I need

So, when the day was ended I was still not satisfied
For I knew everything I touched would wither away and die
And love is all that will remain and grow from all these seeds
Mother's Nature's quite a lady, but you're the one I need
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you're the one I need
