C/B  – X20010

Capo 2

          C           C/B        Am         Am/G      F    G         C   
Well he's eight years old with a flour sack cape tied all around his neck 
     C        C/B   Am      Am/G          F                 G   
He's climbing up on top the garage, he’s  figurin’ what the heck 
   C          C/B        Am      Am/G           F           G      C   
So screws his courage up so darn tight that the whole thing come unwound 
         C       C/B       Am        Am/G      F      G       C   
He got a runnin’ start and bless his heart, he headed for the ground 

Chorus :
            Am               G
'Cause he’s one of those who knows his life 
   F              C
Is just a leap of faith 
       C           C/B      Am        Am/G
Gotta' spread your arms and hold your breath 
    F      G          C
And always trust your cape 

Well he's all grown up, he's got a flour sack cape, tied all around his dream 
He’s full of piss and vinegar, ah, he’s bustin’ at the seams 
So licks his finger and checks the wind, it’s gonna be do or die 
He wasn’t scared of nothin’, boys, he was pretty sure he could fly 


Now he's old and grey with a flour sack cape, tied all around his head 
And he’s still jumpin’ off the garage and will be til he’s dead 
All these years the people said the fool was actin’ like a kid 
And since he didn't know he couldn't fly, well of course he did
