Wond'ring Again  capo 3 fret 

INTRO  D Dsus2 C 
              Am         Cmaj7        G         D      F (Fmaj7)  D  Dsus2 
There's the stillness of death on a deathly unliving sea, 
          Am       Cmaj7   G                 D        F (Fmaj7)  D  Dsus2 
and the motor car magical world long since ceased to be, 
         Am          Cmaj7   G            D        F  (Fmaj7)  D  Dsus2 
when the Eve-bitten apple returned to destroy the tree. 
   C            D          C     D 
Incestuous ancestry's charabanc ride, 
 C            D                   C            D 
spawning new millions throws the world on its side. 
  G             C             G            Gm         Cm7 
Supporting their far-flung illusion,  the national curse, 
    G           D        F           C            D 
and those with no sandwiches please get off the bus. 
    Am         Cmaj7        G         D       F  (Fmaj7)  D  Dsus2 
The excrement bubbles, the century's slime decays 
           Am           Cmaj7     G              D      F (Fmaj7)D Dsus2 
and the brainwashing government lackeys would have us say 
      Am      Cmaj7     G           D      F  (Fmaj7)  D  Dsus2 
it's under control and we'll soon be on our way 
      C              D          C          D 
to a grand year for babies and quiz panel games 
         C              D          C          D 
of the hot hungry millions you'll be sure to remain. 
        G     C             G            Gm           Cm7 
The natural resources are dwindling and no one grows old, 
      G           D            F          C              D 
and those with no homes to go to, please dig yourself holes. 
C                    Am                   G               D Dsus2 
We wandered through quiet lands, felt the first breath of snow. 
C                    Am         G                    D Dsus2 
Searched for the last pigeon, slate grey I've been told. 
C               D                 G   Em         D              Em  (1)  G 
Stumbled on a daffodil which she crushed in the rush, heard it sigh, 
                 D Dsus2 
and left it to die. 
    Em          G               D             C           D  Dsus2 
At once felt remorse and were touched by the loss of our own, 
          Em          G            D             C                 D Dsus2 
held its poor broken head in her hands, dropped soft tears in the snow, 
          Dm        C          G         Em          D 
and it's only the taking that makes you --- what you are. 
C           Am           G               D Dsus2 
Wond'ring aloud will a son one day be born 
C                  Am           G                  D Dsus2 Em D Dsus2   (2) 
to share in our infancy in the child's path we've worn. 
C                D                 G   Em         D              Em   G 
In the aging seclusion of this earth     that our birth did surprise 
we'll open his eyes. 
Em        G
