lyrics

THE FALLING SONG (capo 2nd)
© Bob Wright

D A
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
off a ladder
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
off a roof
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/Bm
from the 31st floor
A
you wouldn’t even want to

fall from a stoop

D A
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
out of favor
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
from a plane
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D Bm
from a mountain so tall
A
that you couldn’t climb up it again


(chorus)
D A soo… why does everyone
D D7
fall in love
G D/D7
why does everyone fall in love
G D Bm
why does everyone fall in love
A D
especially if they’ve done it before




D A
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
for an old trick
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
from grace
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D Bm
asleep in the stall
A
of a bathroom in a public place


D A
you wouldn’t want to fall
D/D7
to pieces
G D/D7
you wouldn’t want to fall apart
G
you wouldn’t want to fall
D Bm
on your sword if all
A
that you needed was

a brand new start



(chorus)
D A soo… why does everyone
D D7
fall in love
G D/D7
why does everyone fall in love
G D Bm
why does everyone fall in love
A D
especially if they’ve done it before

about

Bob Wright/ Harbortown New York, New York

He is a multi-instrumentalist, an award winning songwriter and Bob Wright songs are often mistaken for traditional songs because their immigrant roots run deep beneath the surface of America and back to the places they came from for nurturing and inspiration. They surface in a modern world, constructed with a modern sensibility and a comforting resonance with the past. ... more
