Written by:

G  Em7 G/F#  C  G  Em7 G/F#  C

 G                Em7     G/F#             C
Some things I've done make my conscience burn,

My very spine shutter and squirm.
G            Em7       G/F#    C
I only hope that I've learned from my sins.
G                    Em7    G/F#
I heard a voice when I was 13,
Got baptised and washed up clean.
         G                       Em7        G/F#
But the world has a way, if you know what I mean,
Of scuffin' you up again.

 D         D/F#       G
- I can't explain a blessed thing,
Not a fallen star or a feathered wing,
    D            D/F#                 G          C
Or how a man in chains can have the strength to sing.
D         D/F#     G                           
(2."I'll Fly Away)
Just one thing is clear to me,                  (3.
like a bird)
There's always more than what appears to be
               D           D/F#     G      C
And when the light's just right I swear I
see...poetry. -

G  Em7  G/F#  C

G                    Em7  G/F#
Well, somebody made everything
From my soul inside out to Saturn's rings, 
        G               Em7  G/F#      C
How my baby smiles, how Ray Charles sings...

Of course we were created.
  G                    Em7        G/F#
Clouds make rain, the ocean makes sand,
The earth breathes fire, and lava makes land.
 G                 Em7   G/F#
Well, that took a mighty hand
And a wild imagination.


E  A  D  4x

 G                    Em7      G/F#
Dreams I dreamed came back ten-fold
From the friends that I have to the woman I hold.
G                 Em7      G/F#
I look down on a street of gold,
After all the mud along the way.
 G                   Em7 G/F#    C
Sometimes a big ol' mystery can lead right in on me.
          G             Em7  G/F#
Says that I am home and I am free...
And I'll take that anyday.


D         D/F#     G                            
Just one thing is clear to me,                  
There's always more than what appears to be
               D           D/F#     G      C
And when the light's just right I swear I

G  Em7  G/F#  C

G     =    320033  or  320003
G/F#  =    200033  or  200003
C     =    X32010  or  X32033
D     =    X00232
D/F#  =    200232
Em7   =    020033

enjoy :)
