Wasn't Born to Follow   Byrds

[G]Oh I'd rather go and [C]journey where the [G]diamond crests are [C]flowing and
[G]Run across the [C]valley bene[G]ath the sacred [C]mountains  and
[D]Wander  thru  the forest
Where the tr[C]ees have leaves of prisims and  break the light in colors
That [D]no-one knows the [G]names of         [C]    [G]   [C]
And [G]when it's time I'll [C]go and wait bes[G]ide a legend[C]ary fountain
[G]Till I see your [C]form reflected [G]in it's clear and [C]jeweled water
And [D]if you think I'm ready
You may [C]lead me to the chasm where the rivers of our vision
Flow [D]into one a[G]nother    [C]     [G]      [C]     [D]
[G]I will want to [C]die beneath the [G]white cascading [C]waters
She may [G]beg she may [C]plead she may [G]argue with her [C]logic
And m[D]ention all the things I lose
That [C]really have no value in the end she will surely know
I [D]wasn't born to fol[G]low
