X:1 T:To Try For The Sun Z:Webmaster C:Donovan M:4/4 L:1/4

1/4=120

K:C W:1 W:We stood in the windy city, W:The gypsy boy and I. W:We slept on the breeze in the midnight W:With the raindrop and tears in our eyes. W: W:ch W:And who's going to be the one W:To say it was no good what we done? W:I dare a man to say I'm too young, W:For I'm going to try for the sun. W: W:2 W:We huddled in a derelict building W:And when he thought I was asleep W:He laid his poor coat round my shoulder, W:And shivered there beside me in a heap. W: W:3 W:We sang and cracked the sky with laughter, W:Our breath turned to mist in the cold. W:Our years put together count to thirty, W:But our eyes told the dawn we were old. W: W:4 W:Mirror, mirror, hanging in the sky, W:Won't you look down what's happening here below? W:I stand here singing to the flowers, W:So very few people really know. W: W:5 W:We stood in the windy city W:The gypsy boy and I. W:We slept on the breeze in the midnight, W:With the raindrop and tears in our eyes. % % % % % % %]
