(Pattern 1)
C                   G        Am
The orange was the size of a watermelon to me,
Dm       C               G
Well at least that is my memory.
C                G         Am
Sunshine made my bare feet burn upon the road,
Dm  C G   Am   G
Far a-way we'd roam.

C      G             Am
I'd be howling out a song in the back seat,
Dm             C          G
The boys would laugh and tease about my black feet.
C           G                  Am
They'd tell stories that would warm my soul,

(Pattern 2) 
Dm C   G     Am   F       Em
Mo-tor-bikes and chrome,
Gsus4           G
Jimmy could not wait to get home.

(Pattern 3)
C   Dm   F    C
Homebird sing,
Dm     C          G    
Fly me high on an angel's wing.
(Pattern 4)
C   Dm   F    C
Homebird sing,
C     G/B  Am      G       C
Leave out nothing, tell me everything.


C                   G        Am
Everywhere we went just looked the same to me, 
Dm           C              G
The skies were blue and the grass was green,
C            G                 Am
I wonder how different I might see them now,
Dm  C G   Am   G
Yet I see them somehow.

C           G                         Am
Through the fallen memories when that angel baby sings,
Dm            C              G
Oh the little magic that his solo brings,
C      G            Am
Making up songs and words and singing from the soul,
Dm C   G   Am  F       Em
Oh the stories told,
Gsus4            G
None but him and Jimmy could know. 

C   Dm   F    C
Homebird sing,
Dm     C          G    
Fly me high on an angel's wing.
C   Dm   F    C
Homebird sing,
C     G/B  Am      G       C
Leave out nothing, tell me everything.

C   Dm   F    C
Homebird sing,
Dm     C          G    
Fly me high on an angel's wing.
C   Dm   F    C
Homebird sing, 
C     G/B  Am      G       C
Leave out nothing, tell me everything.
