Wake Up Time
	(words & music by Tom Petty)


This is the final song off of -Wildflowers- and is arranged for piano.  It
is quite a simple song but effective.  Anyway, here are the chords:


Intro:  G, D, G, D, G, D, F#m, A, Asus4, A, Asus4


    G           D             G           D
You follow your feelings, you follow your dreams
    G          D      F#m      A
You follow the leader into the trees
    G               D                G         D
And what~s in there waiting, neither one of us knows
          G            D        F#m         A
You gotta keep one eye open the further you go
G                          Em                    A    D
You never dreamed you~d go down on one knee, but now
G                             Em                    A
Who could have seen, you~d be so hard to please somehow
A
You feel like a poor boy, a long way from home
A
You~re just a poor boy, a long way from home


G  D

A                   Em    Bm
And its wake up time
        A
Time to open up your eyes
    G   D    A
And rise and shine

    G              D                  G          D
You spend you life dreaming, running around in a trance
    G           D        F#m            A
You hang out forever and still miss the dance
    G          D          G              D
And if you get lucky, you might find someone
   G             D       F#m            A
To help you get over the pain that will come
G                     Em                         A         D
Yeah, you were so cool back in high school, what happened
G             Em                       A
You were sure not to have your spirits dampened
A
But you~re just a poor boy alone in this world
A
You~re just a poor boy alone in this world


G  D

A                   Em    Bm
And its wake up time
        A
Time to open up your eyes
    G   D    A
And rise and shine


      G          D        G           D
Well, if he gets lucky, a boy finds a girl
   G           D            F#m          A
To help him to shoulder the pain in this world
           G           D                G           D
And if you follow your feelings and you follow your dreams
    G              D      F#m          A
You might find the forest there in the trees
G                        Em                        A    D
Yeah, you~ll be alright, it~s gonna take time, but now
G                            Em                    A
Who could have seen you~d be so hard to please somehow
A
You~re just a poor boy, a long way from home
A
You~re just a poor boy, a long way from home


G  D

A                   Em    Bm
And its wake up time
        A
Time to open up your eyes
    G   D    A
And rise and shine

G  D

A                       Em    Bm
~Cause it~s wake up time
        A
Time to open up your eyes
    G   D    A
And rise and shine



And it ends on that nice chord.  If you prefer, you can play the chords
any which way you like but to get the sound as accurate and precise as
how it sounds on the album, I suggest you play the chords like this:


       E A D G B E  
       -----------
G      3 x 0 0 0 x
D      x 5 4 2 x x
F#m    x x 4 2 2 x
A      x 0 2 2 2 x
Asus4  x 0 2 2 3 x
Em     0 2 2 0 0 x
Bm     x 2 4 4 3 2
