Children of the Universe

 |  Fsus4  |  Cmaj7  |    Gm   |  Fmaj7  |

Fsus4 Cmaj7 Gm A heritage of vision was given to us all: Cmaj7 Gm Fmaj7 To smell the rose's fragrance, to hear the songbird call, Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Cmaj7 To watch the distant moonlight fill the coming of the tides, Fmaj7 Cmaj7 Fmaj7 Am - G - Fmaj7 - Fsus4 To understand that life is more than always choosing sides.

And some have seen what can be seen of sailing ships and kings,
Some are given feet of clay, and some are given wings.
Some must struggle just to breathe, some have a golden spoon,
And some will never leave the nest while some walk on the moon.

And don't you know the life that lives within the silent hills
Is just as rich and beautiful and just as unfulfilled.
As man with all his intellect, his reason, and his choice,
Oh, who's to say the nightingale has any less a voice.

The silver dolphins twist and dance and sing to one another.
The cosmic ocean knows no bounds for all that live are brothers.
The whippoorwill, the grizzly bear, the elephant, the whale,
All children of the universe, all weavers of the tale.

So palomino, lie back down and dream yourself to sleep.
The hawk flies with the morning dove, the lion with the sheep.
As far away as you may go, we'll never be apart.
It's in your dreams that you will know the seasons of the heart.

Fsus4 Cmaj7/G

(Words and music by John Denver, 1982)
