Ain't no sunshine, cowboy, in your pockets.

I'll make my own way,

while I play.

A
Baby, you forgot you're living.

                D
Someone covered up your eyes.

E                      A
In my way at least I'm giving

E                  A
what I love, am I wise?

        D         E    A
There's gonna be some confusion.

      D           E     A
And there's gonna be a day

D                 E 
you'll raise your eyes

           A
and you'll look to the skies

            B
and you'll pray,

        E
while I play.



A
I am my father's son

           D
or that is what I heard.

E               A
Maybe I got it wrong.

E               A
I didn't mean a word.

E
You got my face

           A
and I'll play your ace,

E                  A
pretend I haven't heard.

        D         E    A
There's gonna be some confusion.

you'll raise your eyes

           A
and you'll look to the skies

            B

        E
while I play.

A                               D
I am a minstrel, that is all I want to be.

E                      A
I'll play inside your soul,

E                  A
I'll show you to yourself,

E                      A
I'll fill your head with wild emotions,

  E            A
a symphony in wealth.



        D         E    A
There's gonna be some confusion.

      D           E     A
And there's gonna be a day

A                             D
I will take my leave, I gotta move on time.

E                     A
I played inside your soul, 

E                A
I made you sing along.

E                     A
I will return to find out 

E                 A
if the melody was wrong.



        D         E    A
There's gonna be some confusion.

      D           E     A
And there's gonna be a day

D                 E 
you'll raise your eyes

           A
and you'll look to the skies

            B
and you'll pray,

        E
while I play.
