Capo 2nd fret

Intro:
|     G     |     G     |     G     |     G     |     G     |


G                      C                       G
Be-side the singin’ mountain stream     where the willow grew,
C                  G                     A7                  D
Where the silver leaf of maple sparkled in the mornin’ dew,
G                        C                       G
I braided twigs of willow, made a string of buckeye beads.
C                                 G                     C                              G
But flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you’re the one I need.
C                                  G                      C                              G
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you’re the one I need.


G                                   C                        G
I leaned against the bark      of birch and I breathed the honeydew.
C                             G                        A7                      D
I saw a northbound flock of geese against the sky of baby blue.
G                      C                      G
Beside the lilly pads I carved a whistle from a reed.
C                     G            C                       G
Mother nature’s quite a lady, but you’re the one I need.
C                                  G                      C                              G
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you’re the one I need.


G                       C                      G
A cardinal sang just for me and I thanked him for the song.
C                         G                     A7                                D
The the sun went slowly down the west and I had to move along.
G                                             C                     G
These were some of the things      on wich my mind and spirit feed.
C                                 G                     C                              G
But flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you’re the one I need.
C                                  G                      C                              G
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you’re the one I need.


G                          C                 G
So, when the day was ended I was still not satisfied,
C                        G                              A7                      D
For I knew ev’rything     I touched would wither and would die.
G                          C                     G
And love is all that will     remain and grow from all these seeds.
C                     G            C                       G
Mother nature’s quite a lady, but you’re the one I need.
C                                  G                      C                              G
Flesh and blood needs flesh and blood and you’re the one I need.
