Well, I wake up late in the afternoon,
   G   D  E          A           A4 A	
I eat my eggs to the evening news,
         G     D    E            A            A4 A   
and the sunís gone down Ďfore I find my shoes,
       G     D   E               C#m        E7/Bbass
Music fills the air, but itís all the blues.
     E                A      E
And she wonít let me fly away
A    	   		  E      D    A
she wonít let me fly away
          G   D  E            A             A4  A
Well, we got no heat and the windowís broke,
       G   D     E           A              A4 A 
The storm rains came, evírything got soaked
             G    D   E              A                     A4   A
And thereís no bread left, nothing  here to smoke,
          G     D    E              
Then the Lord looks down sayiní, 
 C#m        E7/Bbass      D    A
ďCanít you take a joke?
     G#m                F#m          E
The palm treeís just a picture on a postcard,
    G#m             F#m           E
The oceanís just a memíry in my dream,
       G#m         F#m           E
Then a man comes a T.V. selliní soapsuds
    D           A               E
To dirty up my rivers and my streams.
        G    D   E        A         A4 A
Like a mystíry movie without an end,
           G   D     E        A          A4    A
When you think itís over, it just begins,
         G    D   E            A            A4 A
Itís not always true that the good guy wins,
        G    D   E          C#m      E7/Bbass
I been down so long that I got the bends.
      E                A   E
And she wonít let me fly away

A

she wonít let me fly away
she wonít let me fly away
