El Condor Pasa by Simon and Garfunkel

Em                                                   G

I’d rather be a sparrow than a snail
Em
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would
G
I’d rather be a hammer than a nail
Em
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

C
Away, I d rather sail away
G
Like a swan that’s here and gone
C
A man gets tied up to the ground
G
He gives the world its saddest sound
Em
It s saddest sound

Em                                                       G
I’d rather be a forest than a street
Em
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would
G
I’d rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Em
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would
