    I.O.,  I.I.I.I.I.,  I.O. I.O. (4x)

 

                       C                                 Am

1. You know I love getting up in the morning

                      C                           Am      - C

    when the sun first strikes the trees,

                  F                         Em

    all the morning birds that sing above

             F                        G

    still bring back memories.

             C                       Am

    Of a girl who stood beside me

                    C                          Am     -  C

    when the rights I did were wrong,

                   F                             Em

    but she went back down the river,

                          F                            G

    just when I thought I could be strong,

                    F                           C

    when I thought I could be strong, so I sing :

 

    C                  Am

+  I.O.,  I.I.I.I.I.,  I.O. I.O. (2x)

 

                       C                       Am

3. She never told me why she left me,

                 C                     Am    - C

    but the letter say goodbye,

                     F                      Em

    now my mornings are for wond'ring

                  F                          G

    and my nights to reason why.

                   C                         Am

    Why a stranger comes to steal the love

            C                Am     - C

    of a girl I had to hold,

                    F                           Em

    but she went back down the river,

                          F                           G

    just when I thought I could be strong,

                   F                            C

    when I thought I could be strong, so I sing :

 

    C                  Am

+  I.O.,  I.I.I.I.I.,  I.O. I.O. , I sing

    C                  Am

    I.O.,  I.I.I.I.I.,  I.O. I.O. , I sing

    C                  Am

    I.O.,  I.I.I.I.I.,  I.O. I.O. ,

    C                  Am

    I.O.,  I.I.I.I.I.,  I.O. I.O.        ...
