BEAT A DRUM          REM


chords by Chris Lawrence (mustang@islandnet.com)

F                       G
the sun reflected in the back of my eye.

F                                G
  I knocked my head against the sky.

      Bb                         C
the dragonflies are busy buzzing me.

   Bb                            C
a seahorse as if we were in the sea.

F                                 G
half way from coal, half way to diamond.

F                                  G
my fall knocked a mean chip out of me.

Bb                        C
gathering as far as I can reach.

Bb                              C
perched up on the precipice and this is what I've seen.

Gm                             F       C
this is all I want, it's all I need.

Gm                           F      C
this is all I am, it's everything.

Gm                             F     C
this is all I want, it's all I need.

F                          G
a bluejay hectors from the felled Catalpa tree.

F                            G
doctorate in science and the theologians dream.

     Bb                               C
the dragonflies are trying to lecture me.

Bb                             C
a seahorse as if we were in the sea.

Gm                                  F     C
but this is all I want, it's all I need.

Gm                            F     C
this is all I am, it's everything.

Gm                              F     C
this is all I want, it's all I need.

INSTRUMENTAL

F                  G
beat a drum for me like a butterfly wing.

F                         G
tropical storm across the ocean.

Bb                                      C
but don't explain I'm sure I'll want to know

Bb                                       C
but don't forget we're just halfway from home.


Gm                             F       C
this is all I want, it's all I need.

Gm                           F      C
this is all I am, it's everything.

Gm                             F     C
this is all I want, it's all I need.

Dm7     C F
