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

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†††† CDGCDG

And I build me a campfire to light up the night

 

††††††††† 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†† ††††CDGCDG

Prayin' my evils donít outweigh my goods

 

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

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†††††††††††† CDGCDG

When the world that I need is so easy to find Ė kind

 

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

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

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, to the valleys, to the rivers and streams

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

With a pocket full of spare change and a head full of dreams

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