Fly Too High.
Janis Ian.
Album: Night Rains.
Capo 1.

Intro: Em7 F#m7
Em7                        F#m7                      Em7 F#m7
Anonymous autonomous, will likely get the best of us yet 
Em7
Before you disappear,
           F#m7                     Em7   F#m7
If you can lend me half an ear Iíll regret, 
     Em7
If I treat you like a number, 
     F#m7                          Em7  F#m7
Itís because I canít remember your name, 
   Em7 
So have another cigarette, 
    F#m7                    Em7
And help me to forget why I came, 
        Am7   C9      Em7
Run too fast, fly too high, 
        Am7           Em7 F#m7 x 3
Run too fast, fly too high. 
 
Em7                               F#m7
On dark & lonely nights, Iím only right, 
                              Em7  F#m7
When things are bright on the floor, 
Em7
Dancing & romancing, 
      F#m7                     Em7   F#m7
Gallivanting with a handsome I score, 
    Em7
And if you donít believe me you should, 
   F#m7                  Em7   F#m7
See me when Iím ready to roar, 
     Em7
Iíll lost my concentration, 
     F#m7                Em7   F#m7
On a new infatuation Iím sure, 
        Am7   C9      Em7
Run too fast, Fly too high, 
        Am7           Em7 F#m7
Run too fast, Fly too high. 
       Am7   C9     Em7
Got no past, no goodbye, 
        Am7           Em7 F#m7 x 3
Run too fast, fly too high. 

G                                          Am7 
Would you believe, I was once gonna be somebody? 
G                                              Am7
Packed up my bags and I took what I had to the city, 
C9 
Man, it was rough to find the best I could be, 
Em7 
Waiting for the limit on a color TV, 
         Fmaj7        F6
Now Iíve made it this far, got a room with a bar, 
      Bm/G#     B7           Em
And a view, and you, fly too high,

Break: 

Gm      Am7   C9      Em7
Run too fast, Fly too high, 
        Am7           Em7 F#m7 x 3
Run too fast, Fly too high. 

Em7
Hanging around on the infield, 
            F#m7                          Em7 F#m7
What do you steal but another feel at the top, 
Em7                                   F#m7
Making believe in the long run when a shotgun,  
                             Em7  F#m7
Is the way to get out of the shop, 
Em7                F#m7
Hang tail in a new jail, you can go bail, 
                            Em7  F#m7
You you can dance until you drop, 
          Em7
But hereís no fool like an old fool, 
     F#m7                       Em7
In a new school, you just canít stop,  
        Am7   C9      Em7
Run too fast, Fly too high, 
        Am7   C9      Em7 F#m7
Run too fast, Fly too high, 
        Am7   C9      Em7 F#m7 
Run too fast, fly too high.
