"Cryin' To Be Heard"
(Dave Mason)
(saxes, bass, and organ over verse chord progression)
S[D]omebody's c[Bb]ryin' to be h[F]eard
And there's a[D]lso s[Bb]omeone who hears e[F]very [D/A]word
Verse 1:
S[Am]ail across the o[D]cean with your b[Am]ack against the w[D]ind
L[Gm]istening to n[C]othing save the c[Gm]alling of a b[C]ird
And w[Am]hen the rain beg[D]ins to fall, d[Am]on't you start to cu[D]rse
It [Gm]may be just the tea[C]rs of someone t[Gm]hat you never he[C]ard
(repeat chorus)
Verse 2:
Reflected in the water is a face that you don't know
And isn't it surprising when you find out it's your own?
And so you try to find out whether it is friend or foe
And what it wants to know, and what it wants to know
(repeat chorus)
Verse 3:
Well, you're wrapped up in your little world and no one can get in
You sit and think of everything, then you wonder where you've been
You put the blame on someone that you've hardly ever known
And then you realize too late the blame was all your own
(repeat chorus)
(repeat verse 1, call-and-response):
Sail across the ocean with your back against the wind
(sail across the ocean with your back against the wind)
Listening to nothing save the calling of a bird
(listening to nothing save the calling of a bird)
And when the rain begins to fall, don't you start to curse
(and when the rain begins to fall don't you start
to curse)
It may be just the tears of someone that you never heard
(it may be just the tears of someone that you
never heard)
(repeat chorus)
(long jam on D to end)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
