Eight Miles High

Em
G
D
C
G
Eight miles high, and when you touch down.
D
C
You'll find that, it's stranger than known.
Em
G
D
C
G
Sign's in the street, that say where you're going.
D
C
Are somewhere, just being their own.
Em
G
D
C
G
Nowhere is, there warmth to be found.
D
C
Among those afraid, of losing their ground.
Em
G
D
C
G
Rain grey town, known for it's sound.
D
C
In places, small faces unbound.
Em
G
D
C
G
Round the squares, huddled in storms.
D
C
Some laughing, some just shapeless forms.
Em
G
D
C
G
Sidewalk scenes, and black limousines.
D
C
Some living, some just stand alone.



Feel A Whole Lot Better

A
A
A
The reason why, oh I can't say
E
F#m
B
I had to let you go babe, and right a-way
A
D
Bm
After what you did, I can't stay on
A
E
And I'll probably feel a whole lot better
D
E
When you're gone
A
A
A
Baby for a long time, you had me believe
E
F#m
B
That your love was all mine, and that's the way it would be
A
D
Bm
But I didn't know, that you were puttin' me on
A
E
And I'll probably feel a whole lot better

When you're gone, oh when you're gone

Fifth Dimension

D
G
D
Oh, how is it that I could come out to here,
G
D
And be still floatin',
G
Bm
D
And never hit bottom but keep falling through,
F#m
A
Just relaxed and paying attention?
D
G
D
All my two-dimensional boundaries were gone,
G
D
I had lost to them badly,
G
Bm
D
I saw that world crumble and thought I was dead,
F#m
A
But I found my senses still working.
D
G
D
And as I continued to drop through the hole,
G
D
I found all surrounding,
G
Bm
D
To show me that joy innocently is,
F#m
A
Just be quiet and feel it around you.
G
Bm
D
And I opened my heart to the whole universe,
G
D
And I found it was loving,
G
Bm
D
And I saw the great blunder my teachers had made,
F#m
A
Scientific delirium madness.
D
G
D
And now I ll keep falling as long as I live,
G
D
Ah, without ending,
G
Bm
D
And I will remember the place that is now,
F#m
A
That has ended before the beginning ...
D
G
D
Oh, how is it that I could come out to here,
G
D
And be still floatin',
G
Bm
D
And never hit bottom but keep falling through,
F#m

Just relaxed and paying attention?

Goin' Back

I think I'm going back
A
E
Esus4
E
To the things I learned so well in my youth I think I'm returning
A
E
Esus4
E
To those days when I was young enough to know the truth
C#m
G#m
Now there are no games, to only pass the time
C#m
E
No more electric trains, no more trees to climb
A
B7
E
But thinking young and growing older is no sin;
A
B7
E
Esus4
E
And I can play the game of life to win
E
I can recall a time
A
E
Esus4
E
When I wasn't ashamed to reach out to a friend Now I think I've got
A
E
Esus4
E
A lot more than just my toys to lend
C#m
G#m
Now there's more to do than watch my sailboat glide
C#m
E
But every day can be a magic carpet ride
A
B7
E
Esus4
E
A little bit of courage is all we lack;
A
B7
E
Esus4
E
so catch me if you can, I'm going back
A

Into my own parade, cast your dancing spell my way,
