[G] [F] [C] [G] [F] [C] [G]
Oooh [G] [F] [C] [G] Oooh [F] [C] [G]
[G] Sat at my [F] window watched the [C] world
wake up this [G] morning.
[F] Purple sky [C] slowly turning [G] golden,
[F] distant elms so [C] orange
you’d swear [G] they’re burning.
All this flowing [F] water
has [C] got my mind [G] wandering.
Do you [F] ever finally [C] reach
a point of [G] knowing
or do you [F] just wake up one [C] day
and say, “I [G] am going?” [F] [C] [G]
[G] What will I [F] tell you
when you [C] ask me why I’m [G] crying?
Will I [F] point above
at the [C] Red Tail gracefully [G] soaring
or [F] down below where its [C] prey
is quietly [G] trembling?

[F] Cowards at his feet [C] loudly [G] laughing.
[F] Loved ones stumbling [C] homeward
their worlds [G] reeling.
[F] Red Tail above my [C] head quietly [G] soaring.
[F] Waters turn from ice, [C] creek is [G] roaring.
He says, e- [F] nough of all this shit [C] I am [G] going.
