Free Fallin'

This song has just 3 different chords.

G   C   back to G… and then D7 (one bar of each chord)

This pattern repeats throughout the song, so once you're comfortable with that pattern you're good to go. In this case, we won't put each chord above the corresponding lyric since it's the same all the way through.

If you have the CD from our PBS pledge show, listen to track 10 to see how the song should sound.

Then play along with track 11


Intro - G   C   G   D7


She's a good girl, loves her mama

Loves Jesus and America too

She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis

Loves horses and her boyfriend too


Repeat Intro - G   C   G   D7


It's a long day livin' in Reseda

There's a freeway runnin' through the yard

And I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her

I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart


And I'm free… Free Fallin'

Yeah I'm free… Free Fallin'


I wanna glide down over Mulholland

I wanna write her name in the sky

I'm gonna free fall out into nothin'

Gonna leave this world for awhile


And I'm free… Free Fallin'

Yeah I'm free… Free Fallin'




Outro -  G    C    G     D7


           G                        C                       D7
