Intro: G G/B Cadd9 D7sus4 x 4

G           D            Cadd9 G/B D G
She has the wind as a witness,
                      D      G    D7sus4 Cadd9 G/B D G
She has feelings that fly by night,
                D      C
She believes in forgiveness,
             G    Em    D     G   D7sus4 Cadd9 G/B D G
But it's not love if it holds too tight.

                D         Cadd9 G/B D G 
And you can fly beside her,
                            D     G    D Cadd9 G/B D G
But you gotta go where your heart says go,
                    D            Cadd9 G/B
She lets the bright lights guide her,
                                 G   D7sus4
Through the rain and the driving snow,
                   Cadd9 G/B   D   Cadd9 G/B D 
Where she comes from she don't know.

Chorus:
        G        G/B           Cadd9 D7sus4
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
              G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4
Flying out of here,
        G        G/B           Cadd9
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
    D7sus4         G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4 G
Born in an angel's tear.

               D       Cadd9 
If you see her falling,
              G/B          D   G   D7sus4 Cadd9 G/B D G
That's just a little trick she does,
                              D             Cadd9 
She makes a dive for the pain that's calling,
                          G/B           G  D C Em D G
Then heads for the clouds like a little dove.

                   D       Cadd9 
She can't help her laughing,
                           G    G/B D Cadd9 G/B D
She can't stop your crying days,
G                     D        Cadd9
Sometimes it hurts to be having,
             D         G           D   C   Em
To hold on a love that surely must fly away.

Chorus:
        G        G/B           Cadd9 D7sus4
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
              G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4
Flying out of here,
        G        G/B           Cadd9
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
    D7sus4         G   G/B Cadd9 
Born in an angel's tear.

Bridge:
Em7(7)                Bm7(7)
Medicine woman raised her,
                             Am7(5)
The spirit father praised her,
                               G
Through their love she was set free..ee..ee,
Em7(7)
From a baby kicking and screaming,
Bm7(7)                        Am7(5)
To a full blood woman dreaming,
                         D7sus4(5)
With the power just to be.

Chorus:
        G        G/B           Cadd9 D7sus4
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
              G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4
Flying out of here,
        G        G/B           Cadd9
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
    D7sus4         G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4 
Born in an angel's tear.

Chorus:
        G        G/B           Cadd9 D7sus4
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
              G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4
Flying out of here,
        G        G/B           Cadd9
She's a child of the wild blue yonder,
    D7sus4         G   G/B Cadd9 D7sus4 G
Born in an angel's tear.
