FALLIN’ AND FLYIN’

 

Jeff Bridges (from the Crazy Heart soundtrack)

 

Capo on 1

 

[D][A][E][A][D] [D][A][E][A][D][E]

 

I was [A] goin’ where I shouldn’t go,

[D] Seein’ who I shouldn’t see

[E] Doin’ what I shouldn’t do

And [A] bein’ who I shouldn’t be

A little [A] voice told me it’s all wrong

Another [D] voice told me it’s alright

[E] I used to think that I was strong

But [A] lately I just lost the fight

 

[D] Funny how [A] fallin’ [E] feels like [A] flyin’ [D] For a little while

[D] Funny how [A] fallin’ [E] feels like [A] flyin’ [D] For a little [E] while

 

I got [A] tired of bein’ good,

Started [D] missing that old feeling free

Stopped [E] actin’ like I thought I should,

And [A] went on back to bein’ me

I [A] never meant to hurt no one,

I just [D] had to have my way

If there's [E] such a thing as too much fun,

[A] This must be the price you pay

 

[D] Funny how [A] fallin’ [E] feels like [A] flyin’ [D] For a little while

[D] Funny how [A] fallin’ [E] feels like [A] flyin’ [D] For a little while

You [E] never see it [A] comin’ till it’s [D] gone

It all [E] happens for a [A] reason even [D] when it’s wrong

[E] Especially when it’s wrong

 

[A][D][E][A] [A][D][E][A]

 

[D] Funny how [A] fallin’ [E] feels like [A] flyin’ [D] For a little while

[D] Funny how [A] fallin’ [E] feels like [A] flyin’ [D] For a little [E] while

 

I was [A] goin’ where I shouldn’t go

[D] Seein’ who I shouldn’t see

[E] Doin’ what I shouldn’t do

And [A] bein’ who I shouldn’t be
