[G] [C] [G] [Em] [G] [C] [G] [Em]
[A]Captain Fantastic [C]raised and regimented, hardly a [G]hero[D].
Just [G]someone his [C]mother might know.[D]
[Am]Very clearly a [G]case for [Dm]corn flakes and classics[G].
[Am]"Two teas both with sugar please"[Cm].
[G]In the back of an alle[Em]y.
[A]While little Dirt Cowboys, [C]turned brown in their saddles.
Swee[G]t chocolate [D]biscuits. A[G]nd red rosy [C]apples in summer[D].
For it's [Am]hay make and [G]"Hey mom, [Dm]do the papers say anything go[G]od.
[C]Are there chances in life for [Cm]little Dirt Cowboys,
[G]Should I make my way out of my ho[A#]me [C]in the wood[G]s?"
[A]Brown Dirt Cowboy, [C]still green and growing.
City slick [G]Captain.[D]
[G]Fantastic the feedback,
[C]The honey the hive could be [D]holding.
[Am]For there's weak winged [G]young sparrows, [Dm]that starve in the wint[G]er.
[Am]Broken young children on the [Cm]wheels of the winners.
[G]And the sixty-eight summer festival[A#] wallflowers[C] are thinning[G].
[Em]For cheap easy meals are hardly a home on the range.[C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [F]
[Em]Too hot for the band with a desperate desire for change[C].[F] [C] [F] [C] [F] [C] [F]
[G]We've thrown in the [C]towel too many times.[G]
Out for the [C]count and when we're down,[G]
Captain Fantas[C]tic and the [G]Brown Dirt Cowboy.[C]
From the [A#]end of the world[C] to your town.[G]
[A]And all this talk of Jesus, [C]coming back to see us.
[G]Couldn't fool [D]us.
[G]For we were spinning out our [C]lines walking on the wire[D].
[Am]Hand in hand went [G]music and the [Dm]rhyme.
[G]The Captain and the [Am]Kid stepping in the ring[Cm].
[G]From here on sonny, sonny so[A#]nny, it's a lo[C]ng and lonely clim[G]b.
