[C]I'm gonna sit on the porch and [G]pick on my old guit[C]ar
I'm gonna l[F]ay on my back and laugh at my lucky s[C]tar
And t[F]hen I'm gonna fly away
And n[C]ever come back someday
Unless I t[D]hought I would land right close to where you [G]are
Well if I thought a[C]nybody really c[G]ared I'd send back w[C]ord
S[F]trapped to the leg of a trans-celestial b[C]ird
I wonder [F]if I ever really did leave
How m[C]any would there be to grieve
How would t[D]hey react to the w[G]ord

Well I w[C]ouldn't want to hurt a s[G]olitary s[C]oul
I have s[F]till got all 6 foot 2 in cont[C]rol
But when my [F]obligation's low
Is a g[C]reasy uphill road
And p[D]leasin' everybody but me is my first g[G]oal, [G7]Sooo,
I want to s[C]it on the porch and [G]pick on my old guit[C]ar
And just h[F]ope your hangin' loose wherever you a[C]re
And for the j[F]oy you brought to me
This s[C]ong I sung for thee
While I s[D]it on the porch and pick on my old gui[G]tar

it. Enjoy.)
