Flyin’ High (In the Friendly Sky)  Marvin Gaye


by Marvin Gaye
*from 'What's Going On' (1971)*
(Original Key: G)
[Cm] Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Ooh, ooh, ooh,
Wooh, [Em]ooh...
Verse 1:
[Em] Flying high in the friendly sky,
Flying high,
Without ever leavin' the ground, no.
Rest of the folks are tired and weary,
Oh Lord,
And have laidbtheir bodies down.
[Em] I go the place,
Where danger awaits me,
[Bm] And it's bound to forsake me.
[Em] So stupid minded,
[F#m7] I can't help it.
Oh yah, so stupid minded,
[Am] But I go crazy,
When I [Em]can't find it,
Chorus 1:
[D] In the morning,
[A] I'll be alright, my friend.
[Dmaj7] But soon the night,
[Bm] Will bring the [F#m7]pains,
The pain, oh the pain.
Verse 2:
( Tab from: )
[Em] Flying high in the friendly sky,
Flying high,
Without ever leavin' the ground.
And I ain't seen,
Nothing but trouble baby,
Nobody really understands, no no.
[Em] And I go to the place,
Where the good feelin',
A-[Bm]waits me,
Selfdestruction in my hand.
Oh Lord,
[Em] So stupid [F#m7]minded
[Am] Oh and I go crazy,
When I [Em]can't find it.
Chorus 2:
[D] Well I know,
I'm [A]hooked my friend,
[Dmaj7] To the boy,[Bm]
Who makes slaves,
[F#m7] Out of men.
[Em] And oh believe me...
[Em] Flying high in a friendly sky,
Oh baby, flyin' high.
