  C. Brown wakes from bed
                                            C   G   C   G
Brushes his teeth and he combs his head for school
D
  Out the door and down the street
Down to the corner and a bus and some friends
            C                G   C   G
That he's supposed to meet
    D
But there, not to his surprise
                                           C   G   C   G
His friends have gone and they've told C a lie

G             Asus4  A     D
  But you can walk on with me
G           Asus4     A        D
  You don't even need to say a word
G                   Asus4 A         C        C C C C# D
  You don't have to worry about the others

Verse 2:
I C (see) him and he runs up fast
Kicks at the air his friends watch him fall and then laugh
Charlie really likes his friends
But in his heart he knows that
   sometimes a dog is as good as any man
Trying to do as we should
That doesn't always rhyme with doing what feels good
Chorus:
But you can sit in the grass; it feels good
You don't even need to think a word
You don't have to worry, don't worry

Verse 3:
Charlie there is drawing a gun
Right there in the square he's sketched Lucy on the run
Aims his eye, cocks his head
In a cloud of dust, dear old Lucy's gone
Charlie's only trying the golden rule
Draw unto others as they have been drawn to you


Chorus:
And you can walk on home with me
You don't even need to think a word
You don't have to worry...

end on C > G > C > G > D
