@SONG Bend a Little
By: Jimmy Buffett, Buzz Cason
1971

intro: E Esus2 E   E Esus2 E

E                   A
Evil, it's been here all along
E                                  A
Good things, they just seem to have come and gone
E                        A        E
In my life I have seen so much go wrong
E                        A             C     E
And there's only one way left for us to get along

Chorus:
           E             A
You got to bend a little one way or the other
           E               A
You got to leave your mind open to discover
C               G                F
Seems I've been fightin' it all along
           C                G                        F
You got to bend a little no matter which side you're on
                  E (3rd time play Bb?)
Or soon you'll be gone

Papers, they print it every day
Housewife, wraps the garbage then throws it away
I don't guess she thinks they have that much to say
But when the time is right she'll be the lady with so much to pay

Repeat chorus:

History, it teaches much too well
Nations, had to rise up before they fell
And my eyes see the story they're tryin' to tell
And tonight I think I heard the final toll of the bell

Repeat chorus

C               G                F
Seems I've been fightin' it all along
            F              F
I've been a fightin' and a fightin'
Got to bend a little no matter which side you're on
It's a long and and dirty battle
It seems I've been fightin' it all along
I've been a tearin' and a pullin'
Got a bend a little no matter which side you're on
Yes I know cause
It seems I've been fightin' it all along
I've been a punchin' and a gougin'
And it seems no matter which side you're on
I've been a tearin' and a rippin' and
It seems I've been fightin' it all along
It don't matter 'cause you know you
Got a bend a little no matter which side you're on
You got to bend a little backwards
Cause it seems I've been fightin' it all along
Cause it seems I've been fightin'...
You got to bend a little no matter which side you're on
