                "The Porpoise Song"
                      (Gerry Goffin - Carole King)

Verse 1:

	E   C        D                   A
	My, my the clock in the sky is pounding away
	        E               (organ fill: E A/E E7(no3) A/E)
	There's so much to say
	   E        C        D               A
	A face, a voice, an overdub has no choice
	And it cannot rejoice

	 A         /G     D/F#       Esus4
	Wanting to be, to hear and to see
	 A     /G        D/F#
	Crying    to the sky
	         E          E7/D        A/C#       D
	But the porpoise is laughing goodbye, goodbye
	 G                     D [vocals imply Dsus2]
	Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye


	(bass, doubled w/strings)

	 v   v   v   v

Verse 2:

	Clicks, clacks, riding the backs of giraffes for laughs
	Is all right for a while
	The ego sings of castles and kings and things
	That go with a life of style

	Wanting to feel, to know what is real
	Living    is a lie
	The porpoise is waiting, goodbye, goodbye
	Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye


	 G                     D
	Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
	 G                    Bm  [45 ends cold]
	Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
