CC chord       AmAm chord       C7C7 chord        CC chord
When all the world is spinning ‘round 
   
       GG chord
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds 

       CC chord         AmAm chord       C7C7 chord     CC chord
And my feet will not stay on the ground

    G7G7 chord              CC chord
You anchor me back down 



CC chord    AmAm chord     C7C7 chord    CC chord
I am nearly world renowned 

     GG chord
As a restless soul who always skips town 

      CC chord        AmAm chord     C7C7 chord   CC chord
But I look for you to come around

    G7G7 chord              CC chord
And anchor me back down 



FF chord
There are those who think that I’m strange

           EmEm chord
They would box me up and tell me to change

        FF chord
But you hold me close and softly say

         GG chord
That you wouldn’t have me any other way 



     CC chord      AmAm chord     C7C7 chord   CC chord
When people pin me as a clown

       GG chord
You behave as though I’m wearing a crown

         CC chord      AmAm chord      C7C7 chord   CC chord
When I’m lost I feel so very found

         G7G7 chord             CC chord
When you anchor me back down 



FF chord
There are those who think that I’m strange

           EmEm chord
They would box me up and tell me to change

        FF chord
But you hold me close and softly say

         GG chord
That you wouldn’t have me any other way 



     CC chord       AmAm chord       C7C7 chord        CC chord
When all the world is spinning ‘round 
   
       GG chord
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds 

       CC chord         AmAm chord       C7C7 chord     CC chord
And my feet will not stay on the ground

    G7G7 chord              CC chord
You anchor me back down

  1. This version keeps changing keys, I can’t make sense of it. Love this song, but not the best adaptation.
