 Em                            C   G
Singing to the cars up on the overpass

[Bridge 1]

D                      C               G
A herd of antelope, a sea of redwood trees
   Am                           D               D7
Schools of shining fish and a thousand buzzing bees


[Verse 2]

G                             C        G
Over winter parking lots the passing geese
 Em                       C         G
Rising in the air little dandelion seeds

[Bridge 2]

D                         C             G
If I were Jonah tossed into the raging sea
    Am                                    D     D7
I would not fear the whale that came to swallow me

G                           C                G
Oh, you paper cups rolling down the windy street
Em                             C                  G
Oh, you little ants winding through the tangled weeds
