Friday, April 1, 2016


D                       C                            G
I don’t want to forget about of the days
D    Am       C                    G
I cried so hard my mascara washed away.
I won’t forget the reason why
I hold onto life and refuse to die
(to Chorus)

D                       C                            G
I want to remember all of my pain
D    Am       C                    G
that hurt so bad it drove me insane.
All of my happiness was buried under sorrow
planted deep to grow a better tomorrow.


D                       C                            G
But if I go don’t cry for me
D    Am       C                    G
Just plant me under a green cherry tree
So I can be a tree, feed the birds then fly away.

Am        C           G             D
L’amacizia e’ meglio che l’amore
Am         Em          G           D
perche’ la vita’ e’ piena di dolore.
D                  Am           C                 G    
La vita’ non finisce, e’ basta che si cambia.

D                       C                            G
Ma se muoio non piangarmi
D                       Am       C                    G
I capelli stan nel cielo.   I piedi son le radici

Amazing Grace

Amazing grace is one of my favorite hymns.  Here's me singing it.  I don't claim to be awesome or anything--I just like the song.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T'was Grace that taught...
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear...
the hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares...
we have already come.
T'was Grace that brought us safe thus far...
and Grace will lead us home.

The Lord has promised good to me...
His word my hope secures.
He will my shield and portion be...
as long as life endures.

When we've been here ten thousand years...
bright shining as the sun.
We've no less days to sing God's praise...
then when we've first begun.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me....
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

Chords D A G D – D A Bm G D (chorus)

I’m walking down a muddy road again. I’m walking down all alone again.
As I look into the sky, the rain falls in my eye, and I can’t tell if I’m crying anymore.
All the birds have flown home with their songs. I’m sad but I don’t even know what’s
wrong; but maybe not, maybe I just forgot, that I was happy all along.

I look into the gloomy sky and my dry eyes long to cry
and heaven sheds its tears for mine when I can’t shed them for you.
And I ponder all creation as I look across the world. I wonder what someone l
as small as I could do.

As I’m feeling sorry for my self, I look and see someone else
that the world has left all alone
The rain drips from her face, her tears take its place
and she feels like she can’t go on.
I bring myself to ask her what’s wrong, and she wonder why a stranger would care.
And I say,
Maybe, I’m not, maybe I just forgot that I’ve known you all along.

Modified Chorus
Look into the sky, and bid your sadness goodbye
and let the sun shine brightly again on you.
And ponder all creation, and there’s nothing more to do
than plant your broken dreams and grow something new.

Capo 3nd Fret

C                     Em               F          C
Un uomo mi diceva che la vita e’ bella.
C         G            F C
E che non c’e’ niente da fare.
Am           Em        F               C
C’e’ tanto io non so ma sono ancora giovane
   Em               Am            C                  G
Ma so che la vita e'     bellissima con te

C               Em     F          C
L'uomo diceva "beatti'i pur' di cuor
C                    G            F C
Pioche'essi vedranno Iddio."
C          G                 F             C
Ma perche ci amiamo coll’amore puro
   Em                Am        C    G
vedo      in      te    il    divino

C                      Em                F   G     
Ma sentivo come l’uccello nella gabia.
Am            G        F     C
Mi apri la porta e volo via.
C                           Em         F          C     
Ci son tantissme cose che non so dire
    Am                        Em             F            C
ma vorrei sempre sentire come sento con te.

Translation from Italian:

A man once said to me that life is beautiful
And there’s nothin’ you can do about it.
There’s a lot I don’t know but hey I’m still young.
But I know life's so beautiful when I'm with you.

The man once said "blessed are the pure in heart
for they shall see their God."
But because our love is so pure
I see godliness in your eyes.

But I felt like a bird in a cage
You open the door and I fly away
There are so many things I just cannot say.
But I always want to feel how I felt that day.

I just updated this recording today

Capo on 5th fret

G G+ Csus Csus+
Em Am C G
When I think of this world and all that we have
I wonder how long can we go on
Burning up all our oil to fuel our needs,
Massacring all of our bugs and killing our trees.
What we take from life we soon throw away.
Will it be here tomorrow if we don't care today?

Our new technology becomes tomorrow's trash
Putting more mercury in all the fish we catch
Throwing a little garbage on the ground doesn't seem so bad
Until you can't walk on the beach without stepping on crap.
It's true global warming might catch up with us someday
But pollution's giving us cancer and making it hard to breath today.

Improving out lives can't come without cost.
Every time you gain something another things is lost.
Trying to feed all those who stand in need,
Engineering all of our crops with modified seed.
Can we rebalanced life? We must find a way.
Will Earth forgive tomorrow what we've done to her today?


G G+ Csus Csus+
Everything that is will always go on (1st singer)
Cause energy's forever it's always conserved (2nd singer)

Life never ends it only changes form (1st sings as 2nd sings previous line)

'cause conservation of energy's a physical norm. (both sing together)

When a ball falls to the ground it gains speed (1st singer)
If you want a piece of paper you've got to kill a tree. (2nd singer)
You must take from something to satisfy a need (1st sings as 2nd sings previous line)
No form of energy comes for free. (both sing together)
