Capo on 3rd fret
	  		 

 

 


VERSE 

C 
I was driving back west through the patches of fog  

             Am  
We had the brights turned on and we listened to songs  

F                                 G                     C 
I didn‚??t know it then but I was right where I needed to be. 

C 
You were back at home you were working a job  

                Am  
and you were hangin out nights with your friends at the bar.  

F                                      G                       C 
You didn‚??t know it then but you were right where you needed to be. 

VERSE 

I was driving back west through the patches of fog  
We had the brights turned on and we listened to songs  
I didn‚??t know it then but I was right where I needed to be. 
You were back at home you were working a job  
and you were hanging out nights with your friends at the bar.  
You didn‚??t know it then but you were right where you needed to be. 

Chorus  
      F                                    C  
When all you have is what‚??s inside your pocket,  

    Am                     F            G  
and all your dreams seem stuck on the shelf.  

          F                                   C    Am  
Well you best prepare the way for change is comin‚??.  

        F                 G                  C 
Cuz the road will always take you somewhere else. 

VERSE 

I was waking up to the sound of the raindrops  
while you while you were in the southeast sleepin in truck stops. 
I didn‚??t know it then but I was right where I needed to be.  
You were making friends with people I‚??d never meet  
and I was prayin to God that your band would succeed.  
I didn‚??t‚?? know it then but you were right where you needed to be. 

Chorus (variation)  

When all you have is what‚??s inside your pocket  
and all your dreams seem stuck up on the shelf,  
you best prepare the way for change is coming, yes it is.  

        F                G                  Am  
Oh the road will always take you somewhere else.  

          F                G 
Yeah the road will always take you somewhere.  

BRIDGE 

F        G  Am  C              G         F 
Don‚??t forget all you‚??ve ever wanted is yours 

F        G Am  C              G         F           G 
Don‚??t forget all you‚??ve ever wanted is yours. It‚??s yours. 
    
         F                          C 
Well the east coast is busy and the west coast is wild.  

     Am              F                G  
The south keeps it steady while the north rolls around.  

       F                               C                 Am 
And somewhere in the middle there‚??s a town that no one knows  

       F           G                 Am  
where every local kid comes out to every local show.  

        F                 G 
Oh the road will always take you somewhere. 






Misunderstood-Vocal Few  

 
 

G 
It is harder than you know 


To draw water from a stone 

                      Em   C  
I‚??ve been trying for years 

                      G 
Still there‚??s nobody home 

G 
You pick my brain like I got something 


Good to say about why we‚??re here 

          Em    C               G 
It‚??ll be years before I can answer 

Chorus 
              C 
Remember that I 

         D                    Em    G 
I never claimed to know the answers 

  C               D                G 
I‚??ve just been searching for the good 

    C          D                  Em    G 
Because at my best I‚??m a filthy sinner 

C           D               G 
And at my worst I‚??m misunderstood 

VERSE 

It is harder than you know 
To keep shouldering false hope 
I cant carry your fears, 
I‚??m not the one you should ask here 
You pick my brain like I got something 
Good to say about ‚??what‚??s it mean to exist?‚?Ě 
But I can‚??t say anything 
because I‚??m not existing yet 

Chorus 

I never claimed to have the answers 
I‚??ve just been searching for the good 
Because at my best I‚??m a filthy sinner 
And at my worst I‚??m misunderstood 

Chorus 
C         D                   Em       G  
I never claimed to have the answers 

C              D               G 
I have been searching for the good 

C              D                 Em   D    C 
because at my best I‚??m a wayward sinning fool 

    C             D              Em  
So don‚??t misunderstand me telling you 

    C        D               G 
To not misunderstand misunderstood 





Good Enough-Vocal Few  

Tuning: Standard  

 
 

VERSE 
Em                  G               Em        D        C  
I wade through the empty days until you come back in sight 

Em                G                     Em         D         C  
I count all the different ways but you still wont say it‚??s right‚?? 

Em                    G                       Em    D       C  
Cause I am all the selfish things that you'd never want me for 

Em                     G                   Em     D         C  
I sail close but you drift away ‚??til your hearts ready for more 

PREChorus 
        G          D                Em  
I won't go; no I'm not like them at all 

Chorus 
                  C            G 
All that you‚??ve learned from love 

               Em     D  
Is you weren‚??t good enough 

                     C         G 
But all that you‚??ve heard is wrong 

                  Em      D 
You know you‚??re strong enough 

VERSE 

I keep all my hurt locked up in a buried treasure chest 
Any man who has had a glimpse made a mess of it and left‚?? 
Cause I am all the selfish things that you'd never love me for 
I was close now I‚??m far away trying to find the other shore 

PREChorus 

But don‚??t go, no I‚??m not like them at all 

BRIDGE 
C          Em            G                 D 
Don‚??t give up, don‚??t go cold, you‚??re close to moving on 

C                            Em              G                       D  
If it don‚??t hurt, then it‚??s wrong, so let‚??s hurt for awhile ‚??til we feel  
  
                C      Em  
something, oh come on 

VERSE 

Hearts race in the salty air as you put your feet on sand 
Like a dream you‚??re in front of me with your treasure chest in hand 
Don‚??t leave, I will show everything 






Simple and Free-Vocal Few  

 
 

VERSE 

G  
My path in life was chosen 

Em  
In a flurry of emotion 

C                                            G     D 
You know the music seemed to sweep me off my feet 

G  
And I didn‚??t have much choice 

Em  
But to follow her clear voice 

C                                             G    D 
To try to find the things she had in store for me 


PREChorus  

Em                                 C  
I could have been a scientist but I don‚??t mean to whine 

                G                               D  
It‚??s just that I am so much more than what you see 

Em                                   C  
I could have been a million things to gain respect from kings and queens 

        G  
But I chose a minstrels life 

               D  
Simple and free simple and free simple and free 

Chorus 

G                                     B 
I don‚??t mind the fact these musical notes 

                                     Em 
Haunt my mind and resonate from my bones 

                            C 
Simple and free is what I said 

                           G  B  Em B  
Simple and free ‚??til I‚??m dead 

VERSE 

My path in life was chosen in a flurry of emotion 
You know the spirit seemed to take me by the hand 
And I didn‚??t have much choice but to listen for his voice 
And try to help my boy as he became a man 

PREChorus 

I could have been a novelist 
Unwinding worlds that don‚??t exist or a hundred other things I do believe 
I could have written you a symphony 
Become the queen of everything 
But I chose a minstrels life 
Simple and free simple and free simple and free 

Chorus 

INTERLUDE 
C    G    D  

BRIDGE 
(Chorus Chords)

The melody swells and takes me home 
I‚??ve never been alone 
I will always find rest 
Simple and free ‚??til I‚??m dead 




One Day Soon-Vocal Few 

 
 

INTRO 

G C G C 

VERSE 

C                                  Em 
I watch her breathing while she sleeps 

C                         Em 
And then a feeling buries me 

Am                          D 
I‚??d die to see her walk to me 

             Em 
To smile in disbelief 

                           C 
At the ground beneath her feet 

VERSE 
                               
She cracks a smile and shows her teeth 
It‚??s been a year, she looks like me                           
I‚??d die to teach her how to pray 
To give to God each day 
To know it when I say 

Chorus 

G                  C 
You‚??ll never be alone 

G                 C  
You‚??ll never be alone 

      Em                             C                              
Even after all of your innocence is gone 

G                 C  
You‚??ll never be alone 

VERSE 

One day soon she‚??ll say 
Daddy, I love a boy and he loves me 
And I‚??ll watch her leave and then I‚??ll pray 
And give to God that day 
And hope her heart is safe  
A few weeks later she‚??ll come home 
Crying that boy had let her go  
He wasn‚??t ready yet to be 
The kind of man she needs 
So I hold her close and sing, softly 

Chorus 

You‚??ll never be alone 
You‚??ll never be alone 
Even as your heart is breaking don‚??t lose hope 
You‚??ll never be alone 

VERSE  

One day soon, she‚??ll walk the aisle 
My little girl, my precious child 
Beautiful woman, veiled and sweet 
I‚??ll smile in disbelief 
As the tears roll down my cheek 
And then I‚??ll whisper, softly 

Chorus  




Wild I Am-Vocal Few  

 
 

VERSE 

G                               D 
I‚??ve been walking around this town 

           G                                                 D 
And I‚??ve decided I don‚??t ever wanna be another face in the crowd 

            G                  D 
I‚??ve been talking to people I meet 

                     G 
Saying, ‚??I‚??ve been thinking about leaving and I‚??m taking next to nothing  

      D 
with me‚?Ě 

PREChorus 

          G                                         D 
And I know that public opinion says that I should settle down 

               B                             A 
But there‚??s something inside my heart that fights against the crowd 

Chorus 

G          B   D  
And it is wild 

G      D   A  
Wild I Am 

VERSE 

I‚??ve been thinking of things I don‚??t know 
And I‚??m not about to settle with the present if my heart wants to go 
You‚??ve got your convictions and I‚??ve got mine 
But if you‚??re trying to tame the lion in me it‚??ll be a waste of your time 

PREChorus 

And I know that public opinion says to be a realist 
But if you tame the beast in me, then I would not exist 

Chorus 

Cause I am wild 
Wild, wild, I am 

BRIDGE 

B 
I always find it hard to ascertain 

G 
Why it is that I feel this way 

Em 
When my whole life is in disarray 

A 
The future makes me feel alive 

B 
I‚??ve always known the romantic side 

G 
Of not knowing where I‚??ll sleep at night 

Em  
I can‚??t stand when my hands are tied 

A                                G 
My bed the ground, my roof the sky 

Chorus  

Wild, wild, wild, I am
