If I Only Had A Brain

( E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen)

	  		
D7        G             Am7     Bm7               C 
I could while away the hours conferrin' with the flowers 
    G                Am7    Bm A#m7 
Consulting with the rain 
        C       C/B   Am7		  Am7/G     D            D/C   D/B 
And my head I'd be a scratchin' while my thoughts were busy hatchin' 
D7    G          Am7      Bm7 D9 D7 
If I only had a brain 
D7      G           Am 7      Bm7     C         
I'd unravel ev'ry riddle for any individdle  
    G             Am7   Bm7 Bbm7 
In trouble or in pain 
          C            C/B      Am7    Am7/G    D    D/C     D/B 
With the thoughts that I'd be thinkin', I could be another Lincoln 
 D7   G          Am7    G  G7 
If I only had a brain 
Bridge 
    C  Cdim           Bm5-/7 E7     Am7     Dm7  D7   G   G/F#  Em 
Oh, I      could tell you why    the ocean's near the shore 
         F#m7                B7           Em   B5+ 
I could think of things I'd never thunk before 
              A7                D       D7 
And then I'd sit and think some more 
D7       G              Am 7       Bm7              C 
I would not be just a nuffin', my head all full of stuffin' 
      G                Am7    Bm7    Bbm7 
My heart all full of pain 
        C   C/B    Am7     Am7/G    D   D/C    D/B 
And perhaps I'd deserve you and be even worthy erv you 
D7    G          Am7     Bm7 Am7 G 
If I only had a brain
