Intro: 
    Dm  G  C  F
    Dm7 G  C  F

Verse:
Dm                G          C        F
   I'm just a dreamer but I'm hanging on
Dm             G              C       F
   Though I am nothing big to offer
Dm              G              C            F
   I watch the birds, how they dive in then gone
          E                F            Gsus4   G
It's like nothing in this world's ever still


Dm                G          C               F
   And I'm just a shadow of your thoughts in me
Dm               G             C         F
   But sun is setting, shadows growing
Dm             G             C       F
   A long cast figure will turn into night
          E                F          Gsus4   G
It's like nothing in this world ever sleeps

Chorus:
   C             F              G        C     
Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
    Am             F        Gsus4   G
And why can't that always be
C       F              G        C     
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Am          F         Gsus4   G
Just enough dark to see

How you're the light over me

Interlude:
    Dm  G C F 
    Dm7 G C F 

Verse - same as first -:
And by your side, girl, where the acres grow
Into the strong and stunning meadow
a cowboy stumbling in the finest field
And nothing good out there won't be old

Chorus:
   C             F              G        C     
Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
    Am             F        Gsus4   G
And why can't that always be
C       F              G        C     
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Am          F         Gsus4   G
Just enough dark to see

How you're the light over me

Interlude:
    C  F G     C 
    Am F Gsus4 G

Chorus:
   C             F              G        C     
Oh sometimes the blues is just a passing bird
    Am             F        Gsus4   G
And why can't that always be
C       F              G        C     
Tossing aside from your birches crown
Am          F         Gsus4   G
Just enough dark to see

How you're the light over me

Outro - x3 -:
    Dm  G C F 
    Dm7 G C F
