The First Thing I Think Of


Capo 2nd fret C9 Em7/B Em7b5/Bb Am+11 G#maj7 G C9 Em7/B Em7b5/Bb Am The buses are crowded; the taxis are filled; G#maj7 C9 - G The cold rain is thundering down. C9 Em7/B Em7b5/Bb Am Everyone here's in a rush to get there, G#maj7 G - Gsus4 - G Each of them wearing a frown. D7sus2 G The weather's as awful as I can recall, D7sus2 G And yet I'm still smiling in spite of it all. F C9 Em7 F 'Cause you're always with me, outside and in me: Dm Dm7/C Bm7b5 G A constant reminder it'll all be all right. F D7/F# C F You're the first thing I think of each morning Dm G C9 Em7/B Em7b5/Bb Am+11 G#maj7 G And the last thing I think of each night.

It's hard to be happy with the world as it is,
Danger in every direction.
But we're all the same in our joy and our pain
And our need for a deeper connection.
Why some just keep searching for somewhere to land,
But me, I'm just fine wherever I am.

'Cause you're always with me, outside and in me:
A constant reminder it'll all be all right.
You're the first thing I think of each morning

        Dm           G             Am    D
And the last thing I think of each night.
           F             D7/F#           C  F
You're the first thing I thought of this morning
        Dm              G          C9   Em7/B   Em7b5/Bb   Am+11   G#maj7   C9   C
And the last thing I'll think of tonight.
