Born To Fly
Capo 1st Fret

	     G	     Cadd9	     G	    Cadd9
I've been telling my dreams to the scarecrow
	    F	     Cadd9         F	Bb

About the places that I'd like to see
	Cadd9	       D	     Em
I say "Friend do you think I'll ever get there?"
      Cadd9		       D	      G
Aw, but he just stands there smiling back at me
	     G	     Cadd9	     G	    Cadd9
So I confess my sins to the preacher
	    F	     Cadd9         F	Bb

About the love I've been praying to find
	Cadd9	       D	     Em
Is there a brown eyed boy in my future
      Cadd9		       D	      G
And he says, "Girl, you've got nothing but time"



    

CHORUS:
     D			Cadd9  G
But how do you wait for heaven
	D	     Cadd9 G
And who has that much time
     Am G/B    Cadd9  D	  Em7 D/F#	 G

And how do you keep your feet on   the ground
	 Cadd9		     D  Dsus4 D5
When you know that you were born       , you were born to fly

G Cadd9, G Cadd9, F Cadd9, F B

G	     Cadd9	     G	    Cadd9
My daddy is grounded like the oak tree
F	     Cadd9         F	Bb

My momma she is steady as the sun
                             Cadd9	       D	     Em
Oh, you know I love my folks, but I keep staring down the road
      Cadd9		       D	      G
Just looking for my one chance to run
G	     Cadd9	     G	    Cadd9
Yeah, 'cause I will soar away like the blackbird
	     Cadd9         F	Bb

I will blow in the wind like a seed
                    Cadd9	       D	     Em
I will plant my heart in the garden of my dreams
      Cadd9		       D	      G
And I will grow up where I'll wander wild and free



    

CHORUS:
     D			Cadd9  G
But how do you wait for heaven
	D	     Cadd9 G
And who has that much time
     Am G/B    Cadd9  D	  Em7 D/F#	 G

And how do you keep your feet on   the ground
	 Cadd9		     D  Dsus4 D5
When you know that you were born       , you were born to fly
	    Am  G/B C D			  G

You were born, yeah  , you were born to fly

View Just Lyrics...

I've been tellin' my dreams to the scarecrow
About the places that I'd like to see
I say 'friend, do you think I'll ever get there?'
Aww, but he just stands there smilin' back at me

So I confess my sins to the preacher
About the love I'd been prayin' to find
Is there a brown-eyed boy in my future, yeah
He says 'girl, you got nothin' but time.'

[Chorus]
(But) (Oh) (So) how do you wait for heaven
And who has that much time
And how do you keep your feet on the ground
When you know
That you were born, (you were born, yeah), you were born to fly

My daddy he is grounded like the oak tree
My momma she is as steady as the sun
Oh, you know I love my folks, but I keep starin' down the road,
Just lookin' for my one chance to run

Hey, 'cause I will soar away like the blackbird
I will blow in the wind like a seed
I will plant my heart in the garden of my dreams
And I will grow up where I want, wild and free

[Chorus]
