Circle of life (from “The Lion King“) (capo 3rd)    (midi)

 

G - Em             Am  - D         G            Em  - Am - D

             Oho, oho.                     Oho, oho.

 

                     G                              Am

1. From the day we arrive on the planet,

              D                               G

    and blinking, step into the sun,

                  Em                                  Am

    there's more to be seen than can ever be seen,

                  F                                D

    more to do than can ever be done.

 

    G                                 Am

2.    Some say, eat or be eaten,

               D                       G

    some say, live and let live,

          Em                               Am

    but all are agreed as they join the stampede,

                        F                                       D

    you should never take more than you give.

 

                       G    - C - G                           F          - Dm  

In the circle of life,            it's the wheel of fortune,

                        C     - F - C                            D     - D7

it's the leap of faith,             it's the band of hope.

                           G    - E                           Am          - D#

Till we find our place        on the path unwinding,

           G      - D                    C     - G

in the circle,      the circle of life.

 

      G                                Am

3. Some of us fall by the wayside,

             D                                   G

    and some of us soar to the stars,

            Em                                       Am

    and some of us sail through our troubles,

             F                                          D

    and some have to live with the scars.

 

                  G                           Am

4. There's far too much to take in here,

                  D                                 G

    more to find than can ever be found,

                Em                                       Am

    but the sun rolling high through the sapphire sky

                                   F                             D

    keeps great and small on the endless round.

 

                       G    - C - G                           F          - Dm  

In the circle of life,            it's the wheel of fortune,

                        C     - F - C                            D     - D7

it's the leap of faith,             it's the band of hope.

                           G    - E                           Am          - D#

Till we find our place        on the path unwinding,

           G      - D                    

in the circle.

 

                       G    - C - G                           F          - Dm  

In the circle of life,            it's the wheel of fortune,

                        C     - F - C                            D     - D7

it's the leap of faith,             it's the band of hope.

                           G    - E                           Am          - D#

Till we find our place        on the path unwinding,

           G      - D                    C         - G - C - G

in the circle,      the circle of life.

 

E                          Am        D#           G      - D                    C   - D# - G

    On the path unwinding, in, in the circle,      the circle of life.
