Changing Heart

written by Gene Clark

C                       Am    Dm
You can tell a changing heart
F                  C       G
Their face a smile and yet there is no joy
C                              Am
They look for wealth no matter what the cost
Dm            F                C          G
You're someone else that they might  just destroy
Am                    D7
So many people gather round
                Dm
A thousand voices lift their praise
             F                   C
For you have reached the top
      G
So they give  you all they got
Am                             D7
But when you're singing from the soul
            Dm
They fail to see your final goal
          F                 C
They only tell you that
             G
You have a long ways left to go
C                          Am
So you rhyme  the changing rhyme
Dm             F                C        G
With one wheel spinning and one on the ground
C                          Am
Then falling victim to  the game of time
Dm             F               C        G
You place your name out in the lost and the found
Am                    D7
So many people gather round
                Dm
A thousand voices lift their praise
             F                   C
For you have reached the top
      G
So they give  you all they got
Am                             D7
But when you're singing from the soul
            Dm
They fail to see your final goal
          F                 C
They only tell you that
             G
You have a long ways left to go

Am                    D7
So many people gather round
                Dm
A thousand voices lift their praise
             F                   C
For you have reached the top
      G
So they give  you all they got
Am                             D7
But when you're singing from the soul
            Dm
They fail to see your final goal
          F                 C
They only tell you that
             G
You have a long ways left to go
