INTRO:
C     Csus


VERSE 1:
C                      Csus               C                 Csus
I saw him skip around in a field nearby

            C                    Csus              C                 Csus

Not a care in this world, not a thing on his mind
             F                    G         C/E           Am7
And he looked so alive, I soon realized
                     A#                         G                       C
There was a lot I could learn from this little guy

 


TURN AROUND:

C     Csus

 


VERSE 2:
        C                      Csus               C                 Csus

His eyes were so bright like they never saw a tear
        C                      Csus                    C                        Csus

His heart was so small it had no room for doubt or fear
             F                    G              C/E           Am7

And he hadn’t a clue what his next meal would be
                     A#                                         G                     C

Somehow he knew when it was time a worm would appear

CHORUS 1:
C
So tell me little sparrow, how you’ve got it made
C
To find the silver lining when the skies are all grey
                F                   G               C/E               Am7

How you live for the day – hey you live like a king
                  A#                                              G               C

How you always seem to find yourself a reason to sing

TAG:
C/E         F           G           F                                 C/E F G F
Tell me, tell me, tell me little sparrow, how to live?

 


VERSE 3:
C                                                                 Am7 - G/B - C
The sun was now setting so I trudged along
            C
Turned back for one last look he was already gone
              F                G               C/E                   Am7

To a home that he found on someone else’s tree
             A#                                 G                  C

I know he slept with a peace he got for free

 


CHORUS 2:

      C
So tell me little sparrow how you find the faith
      C
To cast all your cares on that someone who cares

                 F             G             C/E              Am7
How you trust in a God you’ve never seen
                A#                               G                   C
How you fly on the wind with such tiny wings

TAG:

C/E         F           G           F                                 C/E F G F

Tell me, tell me, tell me little sparrow, how to live?

 


VERSE 4:
C
I hurried off to a life I didn’t look forward to
C
Wondering what he would change if he stood in my shoes
      F          G             C/E                               Am7
Two steps beyond I hear a voice on the wind
                  A#                             
That said “Always remember:

                       F              G                C

you’re worth so much more than me”

 


TAG 2:

C                                      F          G
Tararapthara, rapthara, raptharara
C                                      F          G

Tararapthara, rapthara, raptharara
C                    C/E                 F          G    C

Tararapthara, rapthara, raptharara

CHORUS 2:

      C/E               F                      G                 C/E
So tell me little sparrow how you find the faith
      C/E               F                      G                 C/E

To cast all your cares on that someone who cares
                F              G              C/E               Am7
How you trust in a God you’ve never seen
                A#                     G                       C
How you fly on the wind with such tiny wings
