Backwards Down the Number Line  Phish

Intro: G
Ha[C]ppy Happy oh my fr[G]iend, blow out candles o[D]nce again
Leave the presents [Em]all inside, t[Em]ake [D]my h[C]and
G D*
And lets take a ride backwards down the number line
You were eight and I was n[Em]ine,
D* (A string 0-2-3) C
Do you know what happened then?
D[C]o you know why were still friends?
Laughing all these many ye[G]ars
We pushed through hardships, ta[D]sted tears
Made a promise, [Em]one to keep.[Em] [D] [C]
I can still recite it [G]in my sleep
everytime a birthday comes
call your friend and sing a s[Em]ong or whisper it i[C]nto his ears or
write it down, just don't miss a [G]year
Y[G]ou de[F]cide what it co[C]ntains, how long it goes but this re[G]mains,
the only r[F]ule is it be[C]gins, happy happy oh my fr[G]iend (repeat x4)
SOLO : Em C x2 (during first solo)
[Bm]And when I see you coming d[C]own the line with eyes wide open
so[Bm]mewhere between the past and f[C]uture where you drift in time
and you can see a different po[D]int of v[G]iew
SOLO : G F C (during second solo)
(NOTE: the D* has a little hammer/pull off)
