I'd Rather Press On
-Gordon Lightfoot

(I made one minor correction, but it doesn't seem possible to unsubmit my previous version.)
Intro: D A
[D]Is it my imagination or is [G]it my iron pride
I [A]wonder if it matters much if [Bm]time is on my side
I'd rather press [D]on--I don't wanta rest [G]easy[Bm]
Anywhere I [A]stray--I will [D]make it a brand new [G]day
Anyway that is [D]all I've gotta [A]say
[Bm]I'd rather be by the [D]seaside
than be [G]playin' a one night [D]stand
I've been [Bm]too wrapped up in [D]my own dreams
I will [G]change things if I [A]can
I gotta press [D]on--don't wanta rest [G]easy[Bm]
Wouldn't it feel [A]fine--to re[D]turn to the women and the
G D A A\Bm A D
wine and all of the sunshine that we knew
You will never know what blue is
until you have played the game
Til you see life in solitaire where no one
knows your name
I'd rather press on--I don't wanta rest easy
Have anyway you will--I will be with you right up
Until the spell is broken and all is well
If you'd rather be by the seashore
well I sure can understand
Are ya too wrapped up in your own scene
I will change things if I can
I'd rather press on--I don't wanta rest easy
Wouldn't it feel fine--
but remembering the rhythm and the rhymes
And all of the good times makes me blue
Wouldn't it feel fine to return to the women and the wine
And all of the sunshine that we knew
