Where the Good Life Begins + Nature's Song



===================================================

Where the Good Life Begins (1975)   T. E. Gray

===================================================

 AGDEm    AGDEm    GFBm7E

A G D Em

Weekday mornings all the freeways are jammed

People talk about the death of the land

G F

But the sign by the side of the road still says

Bm7 E

"Where the good life begins"


Now, what's the use in tradin' that life

for an American Dream you've got to lock up at night?

Behind the door to your soul it's still back as coal


So who are you foolin' with that care-laden face?

Your subscription's run out to the human race

You thought you renewed when you paid your United Way dues


But where will you go when your computer resigns

And the clock on your desk finally runs out of time?

You've got to be...

You've got to be...

Just be...

Alive again.

A child again.

Home again.


Well it's tough to plan for tomorrow's demands

if the stars won't stop to obey your commands

--and the only light you've ever seen comes from your TV screen


You had the will to live and the heart to give

'til you buried the questions you found as a kid

in that rhinestone-encrusted shrine you call your mind


You've been around for thousands of years

but your future remains a history of fears

now, isn't it time you started to find

where the good life begins?


But where will you go when your computer resigns

And the clock on your desk finally runs out of time?

You've got to be...

You've got to be...

Just be...

Alive again.

A child again.

Home again.

Nature's Song 1975 T. E. Gray

===========================================

(Can be part 2 of Where the Good Life Begins)

AE..AEm..AG..A.. etc


Seems like I've been talkin' for a hundred years

--still haven't said a thing


I'm thinking that it's time to free my mind

--learn to hear the birds sing


Twenty years of school hasn't made the way plain;

Two thousand years of man hasn't lessened his pain


--- EG

But the wind is still blowin'

waves keep rollin'

Nature's song is never broken

---


Winter birds headin' south toward warmer days

Graceful shadows flyin' through the city's haze


Fly away 'til morning' comes

let your wings find brighter suns


Soar above the restless sea

--let me follow and be free


--- AEmAG


Seems like I've been talkin' for a hundred years

--still haven't said a thing


I'm thinking that it's time to free my mind

--learn to hear the birds sing

--learn to hear the birds sing
--learn to hear the birds sing
