G                Am

Fly so swift the rain won't lift
C                           G
The gate won't close    the railings froze
                 Am            C                   G
Get your mind on winter time  you ain't going nowhere
G       Am                 C              G
Ooh -wee ride me high,  tomorrows the day my brides gonna come
G         Am           C                 G
Oh lord,  are we gonna fly down in the easy chair
G                     Am
I don't care how many letters they sent
    C                 G
The morning came the morning went
G                  Am                C                   G
Pack up your money  and pick up your tent,  you ain't going nowhere
G       Am                  C             G
Ooh -wee ride me high tomorrows the day my brides gonna come
G         Am           C                G
Oh lord, are we gonna fly down in the easy chair

SOLO

G                    Am
Buy me a flute and a gun that shoots
C              G
Tailgates and substitutes
G                   Am              C                    G
Strap yourself to a tree with roots, you ain't going nowhere
G       Am                  C             G
Ooh -wee ride me high tomorrows the day my brides gonna come
G         Am           C                G
Oh lard, are we gonna fly down in the easy chair
G                  Am
Now Gingus Kahn he could not keep
C                 G
All his kings supplied with sleep
                         Am               C                 G
We'll climb that hill no matter how steep when we get up to it
G       Am                 C              G
Ooh -we ride me high tomorrows the day my brides gonna come
G         Am           C                G
Oh lord, are we gonna fly down in the easy chair
G       Am                  C             G
Ooh -wee ride me high tomorrows the day my brides gonna come
G         Am           C                G
Oh lord, are we gonna fly down in the easy chair
