C                E
calm that wicked wind,
            Am
to pick you up
           F
and carry you off eastward,
C             G
though i did release you
F                     C
for to seek a warmer sky

C                     E
should you be blown back
         Am             F
know that i will always run to greet you,
C                     G
still surprised to catch you
F           C
every time

F                     G              C
armed with this small butterfly net only
F                G
i will face the world alone
    C            G
and never be lonely

C                     E
so calm that wicked wind,
         Am                         F
and if you go, you could be gone forever
C              G
i will play a while here
F                     C
by and by and by and by 

F                     G              C
armed with this small butterfly net only
F                G
i will face the world alone
    C            G
and never be lonely

C              E
up and up you go
        Am                  F
for to steal the secrets of the heavens
C                    G            
will you share them with me
F                        C
my bright and brilliant spy?

C                     E
should you be blown back
         Am             F
know that i will always run to greet you,
C                     G
still surprised to catch you
F           C
every time
C                   G
still surprised to catch you
F                    C
by and by and by and by
