All I Can Do Is Write About It  Lynyrd Skynyrd



         1[G]& 2eanda  3& 4e[D]anda
Well this life that I've lived

   1[Em]& 2eanda   3&[C] 4eanda
Has took me everywhere

[G]1& 2eanda        3& 4[D]eanda    (1 2a[C]let 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
There ain't no place I ain't never gone

    3& 4e[G]anda       1& 2[D]eanda
But it's kinda like the sayin

    3& 4e[Em]anda       1& [C]2eanda
That you heard so many times

      3& 4e[G]anda     1&[D] 2eanda  (3 4a[C]let 1alet 2 3 4eanda)
Well there just ain't no place like home

[G]1& 2eanda        3& 4[D]eanda    (1 2alet[C] 3alet 4 1 2eanda)

       3[G]& 4eanda 1&[D] 2eanda  3[Em]& 4eanda  1&[C] 2eanda
Did you ever see a she-gator protect her youngins

3& 4ea[G]nda   1& 2[D]eanda    (3 4[C]alet 1alet 2 3 4eanda)
Or the fish in a river swiwin free

      1&[G] 2eanda   3& [D]4eanda      1&[Em] 2eanda   3& 4[C]eanda
Did you ever see the beauty of the hills of Carolina

1& 2ean[G]da          3& 4e[D]anda  (1 [C]2alet 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
Or the sweetness of the grass in Tennesee

3& 4[G]eanda   1& 2e[D]anda  (3 [C]4alet 1alet 2 3 4eanda)
And lord I can't make any changes

[G]1& 2eanda     3&[D] 4eanda   (1 2a[C]let 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
All I can do is write 'em in a song

[G]3& 4eanda      1&[D] 2eanda  *3*[Em]& 4eanda 1[C]& 2eanda
Cus I can see the concrete a slowly creepin

[G]3& 4eanda   1& 2e[D]anda  (3 4alet [C]1alet 2 3 4eanda)
Lord take me and mine before that comes


[G]1& 2eanda    3& [D]4eanda    (1 2al[C]et 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
[G]3& 4eanda   1& 2[D]eanda  (3 4alet 1[C]alet 2 3 4eanda)
[G]1& 2eanda    3& [D]4eanda        (1 2[C]alet 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
Like to see the mountain stream a flowing

[G]3& 4eanda   1& 2[D]eanda  (3 4alet 1a[C]let 2 3 4eanda)
Do you like to see a youngin with his dog

[G]1& 2eanda          3& [D]4eanda        *1*[Em]& 2eanda     3&[C] 4eanda
Did you ever stop and think about well the air you're breathing

[G]1& 2eanda         3& 4e[D]anda ([C]1 2alet 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
Well you better listen to my song

3[G]& 4eanda   1& 2ea[D]nda  (3 4a[C]let 1alet 2 3 4eanda)
And lord I can't make any changes

[G]1& 2eanda     3& 4[D]eanda (1 2[C]alet 3alet 4 1 2eanda)
All I can do is write 'em in a song
