Sweet Surrender

Words and Music by John Denver
from Back Home Again (1974)

	Lost and alone on some forgotten highway
	Traveled by many, remembered by few

	Lookin' for something that I can believe in
	Lookin' for something that I'd like to do with my life

	There's nothin' behind me and nothin' that ties me to
	Something that might have been true yesterday

	Tomorrow is open and right now it seems to be more than enough
	To just be here today, and I don't know

	What the future is holdin' in store
	I don't know where I'm goin' I'm not sure where I've been

	There's a spirit that guides me, a light that shines for me
	My life is worth the livin', I don't need to see the end

	 E7              A       E7            A
	Sweet, sweet surrender, live, live without care
		E7          A             E7         A
 	Like a fish in the water, like a bird in the air.
