Drink from nature's fountains

Who knows what I'll do on my way

Interlude: CC chord  FF chord

CC chord               FF chord
I want to feel lost in transit
CC chord              FF chord

Bridge:
AmAm chord         AmAm chord                   GG chord
I was once told whilst growing up
                 CC chord         BB chord            AmAm chord
If you want to leave then go while you can
AmAm chord             AmAm chord                   GG chord
Before you get stuck, before you become
CC chord        BB chord                     D7D7 chord
Another cog in the working machine
D7D7 chord
Well that's not me so...
