C       Am       C7        C
When all the world is spinning ‘round 
   
       G
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds 

       C         Am       C7     C
And my feet will not stay on the ground

    G7              C
You anchor me back down 



C    Am     C7    C
I am nearly world renowned 

     G
As a restless soul who always skips town 

      C        Am     C7   C
But I look for you to come around

    G7              C
And anchor me back down 



F
There are those who think that I’m strange

           Em
They would box me up and tell me to change

        F
But you hold me close and softly say

         G
That you wouldn’t have me any other way 



     C      Am     C7   C
When people pin me as a clown

       G
You behave as though I’m wearing a crown

         C      Am      C7   C
When I’m lost I feel so very found

         G7             C
When you anchor me back down 



F
There are those who think that I’m strange

           Em
They would box me up and tell me to change

        F
But you hold me close and softly say

         G
That you wouldn’t have me any other way 



     C       Am       C7        C
When all the world is spinning ‘round 
   
       G
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds 

       C         Am       C7     C
And my feet will not stay on the ground

    G7              C
You anchor me back down

  1. Letsplayalovescene

    I use the chords
    G, D, C, and Em
    It uses the same key as the original and sounds way better.

  2. Replace A7 with Dbm, it sounds better.

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