The Boy Will Write His Own Story        

 

G Em C D G

 

Verse 1

G                      Em

Twisting in the wind

          C                        D

Like chimes on  the deck

G                           Em

Who was it who sinned?

            C               D        G

Your mind is simply a wreck

 

Verse 2

G                              Em

The sky so dark and gray

          C                                              D

The sun comes shining through

          G                               Em

An idyllic, perfect day

           C               D        G

Because the boy has come to you

 

Chorus

Em                                   G

The boy, a sweet life to live

Em                           D

The boy in all his glory

Em                                        G

The boy, with so much to give

         C             D                     G

The boy will write his own story

 

G Em C D G Em C D G

 

Verse 3

G                                       Em

Running with the wind at your back

C                                                D

Dreaming of his ocean blue eyes

G                                  Em

Doubling down in a game of blackjack

C                            D               G

His beauty just makes you cry

 

Verse 4

G                                  Em

The love you feel is beyond

            C                           D

The salt air brings you a mist

G                                           Em

Like a spell from a magic wand

            C                  D             G

The sweet boy blows you a kiss

 

Chorus

Em                                   G

The boy, a sweet life to live

Em                           D

The boy in all his glory

Em                                        G

The boy, with so much to give

         C             D                     G

The boy will write his own story

          C                         D                     G

The boy will write his own story
