# I see a TAB posting exists in OLGA for this song, with lyrics and chords
tagged onto it. My version 
#  is a quick and dirty chord/lyric sheet. I see that I hear different
chordings: I throw in a D9 accent, # also Esus4. I find the D-E-f# (lc "f"
notation for minor chord) progression works well in barres.

2.  I wonder if those changes have left a scar on you
Like all the burning hoops of fire that you and I are passing through?
You're a bluebird on a telegraph line, I hope you're happy now.
Well, if the wind of change comes down your way, girl,
You'll make it back somehow.
