The Cape

Guy Clark

Tom: C
C           Em         A          G 
Eight years old with a flour sack cape 
     F    G         C 
Tied all around his neck 
C          Em    A     G 
He climbed up on the garage 
F                 G 
Figurin' what the heck 
C              Em      A     G 
He screwed his courage up so tight 
    F           G    C 
The whole thing came unwound 
         C       Em        A         G 
He got a runnin' start and bless his heart 
   F      G       C 
He headed for the ground 
A G Well he's one of those who knows that life F C Is just a leap of faith C Em A G Spread your arms and hold your breath F G C And always trust your cape
C Em A G F G C C Em A G F G C All grown up with a flour sack cape Tie all around his dreams He's full of piss and vinegar He's bustin at the seams He licked his finger and checked the wind It's gonna be do or die He wasn't scared of nothin', Boys He was pretty sure he could fly Chorus Old and grey with a flour sack cape Tied all around his head He's still jumpin' off the garage And will be 'till he's dead All these years the people said He's actin like a kid He did not know he could not fly So he did Chorus
