Once - The dogs have quit their barking
C                             G      F
"Son," - my neighbor said to me.
C                        G      F
"Know the emptiness of talking blue
                 C      G   F
the same old sheep."

                    C
But let me tell you I never planned
                               G
To let go of the hand that has been 
                               F
Clinging by its thick country skin
                       C                       G   F
To my yellow country teeth, To my yellow country teeth

                     C
Explaining that the sky holds the
                              G
Wind the sun rushes in and a child
                    F
With a shotgun can shoot down
                 C
Honeybees that sting
                    G              F

Now - I need a change of scenery, just listen to me
C
I won't pretend to
                               G
Understand the movement of the wind
                          F
Or the waves out in the ocean or how
          C                     G

Plainly blindly oh me oh my!
