Birds flyin'    high, you know how I feel

Sun in the sky-y, you know how I feel

  -8        7   -6     6   -5  -4        -4      -5     6     -6  -5  -4

Breeze driftin' on by-y       you know how I    fe-el

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new li-fe     fo – o - r  me

And I'm fee-ee-lin' good


   -4    -5   6       -6     -6     -4      -5    6   -6

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel

River runnin' free, you know how I feel

  -8    7     -8   7    -6     6   -5    6        6        6      6     -6   -5   -4

Blossom on the tree-ee-ee-ee,      you know how I    fee-eel

And I'm fee-ee-lin' good


-4    5   -5    6   -6    7     7      -8       7      -6    6     -6      -6       6      -6

Dragonfly out in the sun, you know what I mean, don't you know

-4    5   -5    6   -6    7     7  (-8)    -8       -8      -8   -8   -6

Butterflies all havin' fu-un,      you know what I mean

  -8      7      -8         7     -6   6    -4         -6        -4   6   -5   -4

Sleep in peace when day is done: that's what  I  me-an

  4      4     -4       -5   -4 -4   -5    6       -5    6   -6       -6    -6-->-6/-->-4    -5 -4 

And this old world is a new world and a bold world fo – o - or      me-e


   -4       -5       6      -6       -6      -4     -5     6   -6

Stars when you shine, you know how I feel

  -4     -5   6   -6  -8     -8       7      -6    6  -6

Scent of the pi-ine, you know how I feel

-8     -9    -9   -8  -8  -9      -8   -9    -8        -6    6    -5  -4  -5  -6

Oh freedom is mi-ine,   and  I    know  how I    fee-ee-ee-eel

-4   -4   -5      6       -5   -5   6   -6      -6   6  -6    7   -8   -6   6   -4    6  

It's  a  new dawn, it's a new day,  it's a new li-ife    fo-o-or     me

-4   -4   6   -5    -4   -4

And I'm feeling good
