And thereís whisperin' thunder in the sky that Iím under

†††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

It cuts through my mind like sight for the blind

††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† G

The world that I want is too hard to look for

††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D††††††††† G

When the world that I need is so easy to find

††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††† G

And I lay myself down under blankets of sky

†††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††D

The flicker of the firelight will dance in my eye

††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††† G

I drift off to sleep like a babe in the woods

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††† G

Prayin' my evils donít outweigh my goods

††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††† G

And I wake up to rain and I hear the wind race

††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

The drops are like pixies are kissin' my face

††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††† G

And itís so nice to be here and I feel so good

††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††† G

I will gladly trade iron and concrete for wood

To the mountains, the valleys, to the rivers and streams

†††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

With a pocket full of wishes and a head full of dreams

†††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††† G

And Iím headin' back out to Natureís Cathedrals

†††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† D

To baptize myself in the river of life

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††† G

I set my soul free to soar with the eagles

††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††D†††††††††††††† G

And I build me a campfire to light up the night
