F                       Gm7                        
I could while away the hours conferrin' with the flowers, 
consultin' with the rain
       Gm7                             C7          
And my head I'd be scratchin' while my thoughts were busy hatchin'
If I only had a brain

       F                   Gm7                F
I'd unravel any riddle for any individ'le in trouble or in pain

         Gm7                                  C7
With the thoughts you'd be thinkin' you could be another Lincoln
If you only had a brain

    Bb               F       Gm7     C7       F
Oh, I would tell you why the ocean's near the shore
        Gm7      A7                   Dm
I could think of things I never thunk before
             G                  C7
And then I'd sit and think some more

        F                         Gm7                        
I would not be just a nuffin', my head all full of stuffin', 
my heart all full of pain
        Gm7                            C7
I would dance and be merry, life would be a ding-a-derry
If I only had a brain
