    EmEm chord                         GG chord
I'd rather be a sparrow than a snail
                                  EmEm chord
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would
                              GG chord
I'd rather be a hammer than a nail
                                       EmEm chord
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would


 CC chord
Away, I d rather sail away
       GG chord
Like a swan that's here and gone
  CC chord
a man gets tied up to the ground
             GG chord              
He gives the world its saddest sound
             EmEm chord
It s saddest sound

I'd rather be a forest than a street
                                  EmEm chord
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would

I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
                                       EmEm chord
Yes I would, if I only could, I surely would

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
