Fire and Rain


by James Taylor
Just yesterday morning they let me know you were gone
Suzanne, the plans they made put an end to you 
I walked out this morning and I wrote down this song
I just can't remember who to send it to

C - - - / Bbmaj7 - - - / F - - - / C - - - /     / G - - - / F - - - /     // (2x)

 C:	I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you again

F - F/E - / Dm - G - / Cadd9 - - - /     /  x4  /  x4  / 
F - F/E - / Dm - - - / Cadd9 - - - /     //

Won't you look down upon me, Jesus, you've got to help me make a stand
You've just got to see me through another day
My body's aching and my time is at hand
And I just won't make it any other way

 C:	I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you again

Now I'm walking my mind to an easy time, my back turned towards the sun
Lord knows when the cold wind blows, it'll turn your head around
There's hours of time on the telephone line to talk about things to come
Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground

 C:	I've seen fire and I've seen rain
I've seen sunny days that I thought would never end
I've seen lonely times when I could not find a friend
But I always thought I'd see you again
