Capo 2 
          C           C/B        Am         Am/G      F    G         C    
Well he's eight years old with a flour sack cape tied all around his neck  
     C        C/B   Am      Am/G          F                 G    
He's climbing up on top the garage, he's  figurin' what the heck  
   C          C/B        Am      Am/G           F           G      C    
So screws his courage up so darn tight that the whole thing come unwound  
         C       C/B       Am        Am/G      F      G       C    
He got a runnin' start and bless his heart, he headed for the ground  

            Am               G 
'Cause he's one of those who knows his life  
   F              C 
Is just a leap of faith  
       C           C/B      Am        Am/G 
Gotta' spread your arms and hold your breath  
    F      G          C 
And always trust your cape   
Well he's all grown up, he's got a flour sack cape, tied all around his dream  
He's full of piss and vinegar, ah, he's bustin' at the seams  
So licks his finger and checks the wind, it's gonna be do or die  
He wasn't scared of nothin', boys, he was pretty sure he could fly  
Now he's old and grey with a flour sack cape, tied all around his head  
And he's still jumpin' off the garage and will be til he's dead  
All these years the people said the fool was actin' like a kid  
And since he didn't know he couldn't fly, well of course he did
