Expecting to Fly  Buffalo Springfield

One of the best songs ever, it first grabbed my attention on the film Fear and Loathing
in Las Vegas (also an amazing book!)
[D]There you stood on the e[Am]dge of your feather
[G]Expecting to [A]fly
[D]While I laughed, [Am]I wondered whether
[G]I could wave good[A]by[D]e
[G]Knowin' that you'd g[C]one
[Dm]By the summer i[G]t was healing
[C]We had said goodb[F]ye
[Dm]All the years we'd sp[G]ent with feeling
[C]Ended with a c[F]ry
[Fmaj7]Babe, [Cmaj7] ended with a c[F]ry
[Fmaj7]Babe, [Cmaj7] ended with a c[D]ry
[D]I tried so h[Am]ard to stand
As I st[G]umbled and fell to the gr[A]ound
[D]So hard to l[Am]augh as I fumbled
And re[G]ached for the love I f[A]ou[D]nd
K[G]nowin' it was go[C]ne
[Dm]If I never li[G]ved without you
N[C]ow you know I'd d[F]ie
[Dm]If I never sa[G]id I loved you
N[C]ow you know I'd t[F]ry
[Fmaj7]Babe, [Cmaj7] now you know I'd t[F]ry
[Fmaj7]Babe, [Cmaj7] now you know[F] I'd try
