Am                                G                                  
What a gift, what a gift has been given me
           C/G        D add4
Here with my heart so whole 
     Am            C
While others may be grieving
                  G          C  G
To think of their grieving


Am                                   G
And O my boy, don't you know you are dear to me
           C/G        D add4 
You are the breath of life 
     Am             C
And a light upon the water
                G        C  G
A light upon the water


(Harmonica solo  use verse form.)


Am                                    G
And O my love, if you only knew how I longed for you
     C/G      D add4 
How I waste my days 
       Am             C
Wishing you would come around
                    G      C  G
Just to have you around


Am                                  G
And what a dear, what a sweet little baby
    C/G    D add4  
This cannonball 
      Am            C
In the bosom of your belly
                        G        C G
It's just a kick in your belly


(Harmonica solo #2)


Am                                  G
And O my god, what a world you have made here
       C/G      D add4
What a terrible world 
      Am        C
What a beautiful world
                       G         C  G  
What a world you have made here
            C        G                C  G
What a world you have made here
            C        G                C  G
What a world you have made here
            C        G                C  G
What a world you have made here.

View Just Lyrics...

What a gift, what a gift you can give me
Here with my heart so whole,
While others may be grieving
Think of their grieving

And oh my boy
Don't you know you are dear to me
You are a breath of life
And a light upon the water
A light upon the water

And, oh my love
If you only knew how I long for you
How I waste my days wishing you would come around
Just to have you around

And what a dear
What a sweet little baby
This cannonball in the bosom of your belly
It's just a kick in your belly

And oh my god,
What a world you have made here
What a terrible world, what a beautiful world
What a world you have made here
What a world you have made here
What a world you have made here
What a world you have made here
