Paraiso

Smokey Mountain

   Note: Original key is 1/2 step lower (Ab)

   Intro: A-D-; (4x)

     A          D/A       A       E/G#
   Return to a land called Paraiso
     F#m7            E           D-E
   A place where a dying river ends
        A       D/A       A       E/G#
   No birds dare fly over Paraiso
      F#m7     E             B/Eb
   No space allows them to endure
        Db/F                 F#m,F#m7,
   The smoke that screens the air
         B/Eb               E
   The grass that's never there

          D              A/C#
   And if I could see a single bird
           D
   What a joy
             A/C#                  D
   I try to write some words and create
             F#m         F#m7
   A single song to be heard
      B/Eb                E-pause
   By the rest of the world

      A           D/A         A      E/G#
   I live in this land called Paraiso
         F#m7           E               D        E
   In a house made of cardboard floors and walls
       A            D/A       A    E/G#
   I learned to be free in Paraiso
           F#m7    E         B/Eb
   Free to claim anything I see
  Db/F                      F#m7,F#m7,
   Matching rags for my clothes
  B/Eb                    E
   Plastic bags for the cold

           D               A/C#
   And if empty cans were all I have
           D
   What a joy
            A/C#                  D
   I never fight to take someone else's coins
        F#m      F#m7           B/Eb        Esus-E-pause
   And live with fear like the rest of the boys

                Chorus
  A/C#,E,E,D     A/C#          A
   Pa-ra-i-so, help me make a stand
  A/C#,E,E,D     A/C#          A
   Pa-ra-i-so, take me by the hand
  A/C#,E,E,D    F#m            F#m7  B/Eb
   Pa-ra-i-so, make the world understand

          D              A/C#
   And if I could see a single bird
           D
   What a joy
             A/C#                  D
   This tired and hungry land could expect
             F#m         F#m7
   Some truth and hope and respect
         B/Eb  E       A
   From the rest of the world

   Adlib: A-D/A-A-E/G#-
          F#m7-E-D-E-
          A-D/A-A-E/G#-
          F#m7-E-B/Eb-
          Db/F-F#m7,F#m7,B/Eb-E

           D               A/C#
   And if empty cans were all I have
           D
   What a joy
            A/C#                  D
   I never fight to take someone else's coins
        F#m      F#m7           B/Eb        Esus-E-
   And live with fear like the rest of the boys

   (Repeat Chorus)

          D              A/C#
   And if I could see a single bird
           D
   What a joy
             A/C#                  D
   This tired and hungry land could expect
             F#m         F#m7
   Some truth and hope and respect
         B/Eb  E       A
   From the rest of the world

   (Repeat Chorus)

          D              A/C#
   And if I could see a single bird
           D
   What a joy
             A/C#                  D
   This tired and hungry land could expect
             F#m         F#m7
   Some truth and hope and respect
             B/Eb-E 
   From the rest  

          D              A/C#
   And if I could see a single bird
           D
   What a joy
             A/C#                  D
   This tired and hungry land could expect
             F#m         F#m7
   Some truth and hope and respect
         B/Eb  E          A-D-A-D-A-D-A-D-A
   From the rest of the world
