To live is to fly  Townes Van Zandt

[F]Days up and [C]down they come [F]like Rain on a [C]conga drum
[C]Forget most, re[G]member some but [F]don't turn none [C]away
[F]Everything is [C]not enough & [F]nothin' is too [C]much to bear
[C]Where you've been is [G]good and gone all you[F] keep is the gettin' [C]there
To [F]Live Is To [C]Fly Both [F]low and [G]high
So [C]shake the dust off [G]of your broken wings
And the [F]sleep out of you [C]eyes

We all got holes to fill & them holes are all that's real
Some fall on you like a storm sometimes you dig your own
The choice is yours to make, time is yours to take
Some sail upon the sea some toil upon the stone

To [F]Live Is To [C]Fly Both [F]low and [G]high
So [C]shake the dust off [G]of your broken wings
And the [F]sleep out of you [C]eyes

Good-by to all my friends it's time to go again
Just think about the poetry and the pickin' down the line
I'll miss the system here the bottom's low and the treble's clear
But it don't pay to think too much on the things you leave behind

To Live Is To Fly Both low and high
So shake the dust off of your broken wings
And the sleep out of you eyes
Shake the dust off of your wings
And the tears out of your eyes...
