Subject: Jimmy Buffett "Bend a Little"

@SONG Bend a Little
By: Jimmy Buffett, Buzz Cason 
1971 

[intro: E Esus2 E   E Esus2 E]

E                   A
Evil, it's been here all along
E                                  A
Good things, they just seem to have come and gone
E                        A        E
In my life I have seen so much go wrong
E                        A             C     E
And there's only one way left for us to get along 

Chorus:
           E             A
You got to bend a little one way or the other
           E               A
You got to leave your mind open to discover
C               G                F
Seems I've been fightin' it all along
           C                G                        F
You got to bend a little no matter which side you're on
                  E (3rd time play Bb?)
Or soon you'll be gone 
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/buffett_jimmy/bend_a_little_crd.html ]
Papers, they print it every day 
Housewife, wraps the garbage then throws it away 
I don't guess she thinks they have that much to say 
But when the time is right she'll be the lady with so much to pay 
   
Repeat chorus: 

History, it teaches much too well 
Nations, had to rise up before they fell 
And my eyes see the story they're tryin' to tell 
And tonight I think I heard the final toll of the bell 

Repeat chorus

C               G                F
Seems I've been fightin' it all along
            F              F
I've been a fightin' and a fightin' 
Got to bend a little no matter which side you're on 
It's a long and and dirty battle 
It seems I've been fightin' it all along 
I've been a tearin' and a pullin' 
Got a bend a little no matter which side you're on 
Yes I know cause 
It seems I've been fightin' it all along 
I've been a punchin' and a gougin' 
And it seems no matter which side you're on 
I've been a tearin' and a rippin' and 
It seems I've been fightin' it all along 
It don't matter 'cause you know you 
Got a bend a little no matter which side you're on 
You got to bend a little backwards 
Cause it seems I've been fightin' it all along 
Cause it seems I've been fightin'... 
You got to bend a little no matter which side you're on
