        FF chord                       Gm7Gm7 chord                        
I could while away the hours conferrin' with the flowers, 
                    FF chord   
consultin' with the rain
       Gm7Gm7 chord                             C7C7 chord          
And my head I'd be scratchin' while my thoughts were busy hatchin'
      FF chord   
If I only had a brain
       FF chord                   Gm7Gm7 chord                FF chord
I'd unravel any riddle for any individ'le in trouble or in pain
         Gm7Gm7 chord                                  C7C7 chord
With the thoughts you'd be thinkin' you could be another Lincoln
       FF chord
If you only had a brain
    BbBb chord               FF chord       Gm7Gm7 chord     C7C7 chord       FF chord
Oh, I would tell you why the ocean's near the shore
        Gm7Gm7 chord      A7A7 chord                   DmDm chord
I could think of things I never thunk before
             GG chord                  C7C7 chord
And then I'd sit and think some more
        FF chord                         Gm7Gm7 chord                        
I would not be just a nuffin', my head all full of stuffin', 
   FF chord
my heart all full of pain
        Gm7Gm7 chord                            C7C7 chord
I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry
     FF chord
If I only had a brain
