Rhymes and reasons John Denver
/*Tune down one full tone*/
1) So you [G]speak to me in [D/F#]sadness and the [C/E]coming of the [G]winter,
2) Though the city starts to crumble and the towers fail a-round us
1) [Em]fear that is within' [Bm]you know that [C]seems to never [D]end,
2) the sun is slowly fa-ding and it's colder than the sea
1) and the [G]dreams that have es-[D/F#]caped you and the [C/E]hope that you've for-[G]gotten
2) it is written: From the de-sert to the mountains they shall lead us
1) and you [Em]tell me that you [G]need me now and you [D]want to be my friend
2) by the hand and by the heart and they will comfort you and me.
1) and you [C]wonder where we're going, where's the [G]rhyme and where's the [D/F#]reason
2) In their innocence and trusting, they will teach us to be free.
1) and it's [Em]you cannot acce[G]pt it is he[D/F#]re we must begin
 2) ------------------instrumental----------------------

1) to seek the [Am]wisdom of the children
 2) ----------------------------------

1) and the g[G]raceful way of fl[C]owers in the [D]wind.
 2) -----------------instrumental---------------

1) For the [G]children and the [D/F#]flowers for my [C/E]sisters and my [G]brothers,
2) For the children and the flowers for my sisters and my brothers,
1) [Em]their laughter and their [Bm]loveliness would [C]clear a cloudy [D]day.
2) their laughter and their loveliness would clear a cloudy day.
1) Like the [G]music of the [D/F#]mountains and the [C/E]colors of the [G]rainbow
2) And the song that I am singing is a prayer for non-believers
1) they're a [Em]promise of the [G]future and the [D7/F#]blessing for [G]today.[C/G] [D7/G]
2) [Em]come and stand be[G]side us we can [D7/F#]find a better [C/G]way.[G] [C/G] [D7/G] [G]
