Description

Great song from the 1969 movie "Midnight Cowboy." I can't sing like the great Harry Nilsson could (in fact he won a Grammy for his performance), but I love this song and gave it my best attempt. The song was written and originally recorded by Fred Neil. [D] Everybody’s talkin’ at me [D7] I don’t hear a word they’re sayin’ [A7] Only the echoes of my [D] mind [D] People stoppin’, starin’ [D7] I can’t see their faces [A7] Only the shadows of their [D] eyes [Em7] I’m goin’ where the [A7] sun keeps shinin’ [D] Through the pourin’ [D7] rain [Em7] Goin’ where the [A7] weather suits my [D] clothes [D7] [Em7] Bankin’ off the [A7] northeast winds [D] sailin’ on a summer [D7] breeze [Em7] And skippin’ over the [A7] ocean like a [D] stone [D] wah [D7] wah [A7] wahh [D] [Em7] I’m goin’ where the [A7] sun keeps shinin’ [D] Through the pourin’ [D7] rain [Em7] Goin’ where the [A7] weather suits my [D] clothes [D7] [Em7] Bankin’ off the [A7] northeast winds [D] sailin’ on a summer [D7] breeze [Em7] And skippin’ over the [A7] ocean like a [D] stone [D] Everybody’s talkin’ at me… [D7] Can’t hear a word they’re sayin’ [A7] Only the echoes of my [D] mind [A7] I won’t let you leave my love be[D]hind [A7] No I won’t let you leave… [D] [A7] wahh [D] [A7] I won’t let you leave my love be[D]hind Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976: allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, and teaching.
