I would like to find the chords to this Blaze Foley song. It would be nice to have a thread with all his songs. Do we have one? hg



If I Could Only Fly
By Blaze Foley


I almost felt you touchin' me - just now
I wish I knew which way to turn and go
I feel so good and I feel so bad
Wonder what I oughta do

If I could only fly
If I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye
To come and be with you
But I can hardly stand
Got nowhere to run
Another sinkin' sun
One more lonely night

The wind keeps blowin' somewhere every day
They tell me things get better somewhere up the way
Just dismal thinkin' on a dismal day
Sad songs for us to bear

If I could only fly
If I could only fly
Then I could be with you

You know sometimes I write happy songs
Other times little things are wrong
You know I wish they all could make you smile
Tomorrow maybe we can get away
I'm coming home soon and I want to stay
I wish you could come with me when I go again

If I could only fly
If I could only fly
I'd bid this place goodbye
To come and be with you
But I can hardly stand
Got nowhere to run
Another sinkin' sun
One more lonely night

If I could only fly
If You could only fly
If we could only fly
There'd be no more lonely nights

Here's a wonderful perfromance of an immense song. Not slick...but slick is over-rated.

BLAZE FOLEY sings IF I COULD ONLY FLY

I love this song!!!
Try playing it with a dropped D tuning, sounds great.
Also check out the Merle Haggard version.
Just goes to show all you need is "3 chords and the truth"
Beautful.
