G†††††††††††† ††††††††††††††F†††††††††††††††† C

On a wind swept street in another city

††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

I was coolin' my feet and I sang a little ditty

††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††† C

The flagpole was tappin' Ė Keeping time

††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

To the song that Iím singin' and the squeaking of the swingin' sign


†††††††††† F††††††††† G††††††† F†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† Am

If you need a sign I think thatís fine, hey brother

F†††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††† G

Some peopleís signs are a little more faded than others Ė one another


G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† C

All roads lead home or so they say

G††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† C

All my roads lead me back to the same highway


F††††††††††††† G†††††††††††† F††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† Am

Donít you know the way things go itís like a daydream? Yeah

F†††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††††††††† F†††††††††† G†††††† Am††††††††† G

No matter how hard you try you canít scream it seems


G†††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† C

City streets can make your mind blind

G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† C

Reaching for dreams that you might never find

G††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††† C

Donít lose your grip 'cuz you might slip away

G††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††C

Excuse me sir - Can you tell me the time of day?


†† F†††††††††††† G††††††††† F†††††††††† G†††††††††††††††††††† Am

I think itís time to start a rhyme without ending

F†††††††††† G††††††††††† F†††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Am

Can you hear my words of thought without my sending?

††††† G

No pretending
