G * D
Won't say I love you babe
G * D
Won't say I need you babe
[D]But I'm going to [A]get you babe
and I wi[G]ll not do you wr[D]ong
G * D
Living's mostly wasting time
G * D
and I waste my share of mine
[D]but it never fee[A]ls too good
so [G]let's not take too lo[D]ng
Chorus
You're s[G]oft as g[D]lass and I'm a[G] gentle [A]man
[D]we got the sky to [A]talk about
and the [G]world to lie [D]upon
G * D
Days up and down they come
G * D
like rain on a conga drum
[D]forget most, [A]remember some
but [G]don't turn none[D] away.
G * D
Everything is not enough
G * D
nothing is too much to bear
[D]where you been is [A]good and gone
all you [G]keep's the getting [D]there.
Chorus
To [G]live is to [D]fly [G]low and [A]high
[D]so shake the dust off [A]of your wings
and the [G]sleep out of your [D]eyes.
G * D
It's goodbye to all my friends
G * D
It's time to go again
[D]Think of all the [A]poetry
and the [G]pickin' down the [D]line.
G * D
I'll miss the system here
G * D
the bottom's low and the treble's clear
[D]but it don't pay to [A]think too much
on the [G]things you leave [D]behind.
Chorus
I may[G] be [D]gone but [G]I won't be [A]long
[D]I'll be bringing back the [A]melody
and the [G]rhythm that I [D]find.
G * D
We all got holes to fill
G * D
and them holes are all that's real
[D]some fall on you like a [A]storm
sometimes [G]you dig your [D]own
G * D
But choice is yours to make
G * D
time is yours to take
[D]some dive [A]into the sea
some [G]toil upon the [D]stone.
Chorus
To [G]live is to [D]fly [G]low and [A]high
[D]so shake the dust off [A]of your wings
and the [G]sleep out of your [D]eyes.
