Subject: Optimistic Thought(Blues Traveler)

 

I figured out this song a few years ago by studying Chan's hands at a

concert in Providence.

It's from the album Travelers and Thieves (a work of genius!)the only

difference in the playing is that on the last verse on the album, everything

is shifted up one half-step.

 

Optimistic Thought

by Blues Traveler

 

A D A D E A

When she wakes it seems so shady, she remembers she's a lady

F#m E A D E

Oh but could it be that maybe she was having lots of fun

A D A D E A

She sees she's wearing leather, in her navel there's a feather

F#m E A D A

She just has to crack a smile and close her eyes her prayer begun

 

chorus:

A D A D E A

Life I embrace you, I shall honor and disgrace you

F#m E

Please forgive if I replace you

A D E

You see I'm going through some pain

A D A D E A

But now I see clearly, and the dawn is coming nearly

F#m E

And though I'm human and it's early

A D A

I swear I'll never forget again

 

An explorer he went wandering

To satisfy his pondering

Basically meandering

Unsure of what he'd find

Braving any danger

But to his family he's a stranger

And from time to time he turns around

And this runs through his mind

 

chorus

 

There's a multitude of story

Some is clean and some are gory

But there is no need to worry

If you're sold or if you're bought

We're just spinning on some granite

That we like to call a planet

And if you need to contemplate

Well here's an optimistic thought
