Itís a clear cool night and Iíd like to take the long way home

††††††††† D*Bm F#††† G†††††††† A††††††††††††††††† D

And I feel all right - I donít want to walk alone

G††††††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††† G†††††††† ††††††††††A

Maybe we can bring some - Maybe we can sing some too

G††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††††† D

Maybe we can stop along the way

Where the grass is high Ė Itís softer than the mattress in my room

We can find a place where we can lie - Somewhere in the shadow of the moon

G††††††††† A††††††††††††††† G††††††††† A

We can kiss there - We can talk some too

We can dream the night away


††††† D* Bm F#††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††††† †††D

You get up to say goodbye - I know it will never be this way again

G†††††††††††† A†††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††† A

And I will miss you - And you may miss me too

Every time I think of you I cry - And pray you call me on the phone

G††††††††††††††† A†††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† A

Cuz Iím too proud to - You may be too proud too

G††††††† A††††††††††††††††††††††† D

And it makes me wonder why


†††††† D*Bm F#††††††† G††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††† D

The road is long - It gets a little longer everyday

I climb the rocks on mountain high - And stand there screaming in the rain


G††††††††††††††† A†††††† G††††††††††††††† A††††††††††††††††† GA

I reach out to you - I pray you reach out too

Then I fly, I fly - I will never land again

D* Bm F# G††††††† A††††††††††††† D

I fly, I fly - I will never land again
