WHY WALK WHEN YOU CAN FLY (Mary Chapin Carpenter)
-------------------------------------------------
[I've no idea how Mary Chapin Carpenter plays this song.  In concert, she
 plays it with a capo on the 7th fret.  Since the song is in B, that would
 mean she's playing in E, and the verse chords are B E A A.  She's clearly
 using a very strange tuning, because I can't for the life of me figure out
 how she's getting those chords out of the positions she uses.  Any ideas?]
[I'm going to write these chords down in the key of G, since I know that's
 where John Jennings plays them, with a capo on the 4th fret.]

In this world there's a whole lot of trouble, baby
n.c.
In this world there's a whole lot of pain
n.c.
In this world there's a whole lot of trouble
n.c.
But a whole lot of ground to gain
n.c.
Why take when you could be giving, why watch as the world goes by
n.c.
It's a hard enough life to be living, why walk when you can fly
