lyrics

CAPO 5 G Em D C.
last lines are: C D C D G

V1:
Toss it up, on the top rack, keep it cooking in the fry pan.
Lay it on the green grass, turn it over when you can.
Pour it in pale now, carry it all the way to your town.
Give a copy to the mail gal, pick it up and turn it around.
Take it down to the hunting ground, stick it out in the dog pound.
> Don’t ever let it see you frown, and leave all good things to be.

CHORUS:
So when summertime’s forgotten and the days are too,
when the apples get rotten, all too soon.
Keep your eye on the prize, keep your clock on high noon,
Square your shoulders to the sun, and call that joker a fool.
> Don’t let him see you smile, and leave all good things to be.

V2:
So plant it down, in the soil, away from all this turmoil.
Let it grow all on its own, right next to your yellow home.
Give it shelter in a hurricane, watch it through broken window panes.
Shoot it through that red rim, put it on that wheel and spin.
> Sit back with a smoke and grin, and leave all good things to be.

CHORUS:

V4:
Even when you don’t understand, you buy into the master plan.
Don’t question perfect when you can, it’ll all fall through the sand
It’ll be there in the end, leave all good things to be.
CHORUS:
Tag and fade V1:
