Gm7
C7
Back in bed where he wrote his satire
He gives speeches, always reaches Out a lot, led him to discover Silken hair, more silken hair Fell on his face and no wind was blowing Stepped across the golden fields And saw that she was soon trailing after She was nice and didn't fight He fell into her friendly persuasion Late that night while by a street light Little hands shadowed on the ceiling
