C5                F5
Well a robin flew by my window
           C5               G5
I thought it just might be you
Judging from the colour of its breast
And the sound of its song
     C5             G5         C5     
But I'm just thinking of you

Cos you're in sunny California
The fertile land John Steinbeck wrote,
But when I came not a single fertile patch
Could be spared for you and me

            F5           G5           C5
You see I wanted to love you baby
C5                                  G5
But neither you nor I'd been loved before
                    C5                        F5                  
I thought I could change the world if I just held you high enough
             C5           G5              C5
The truth is I couldn't hold you up at all

           A5     G5  F5
I couldn't hold you up
            A5   G5  C5
I couldn't hold you up
        G5                       C5
And I sure ain't gonna hold you down


Well I'm leaving
Walking back home
       C5                G5
I don't care if it takes years or more
         C5                 F5
But as I walk through the hills of Kentucky
       C5                  G5
The leaves begin to turn red

        A5   G5  F5
And I think of you
         A5   G5  C5
Yes, I think of you
      G5                    C5      
The prettiest tree on the mountain.
