                           "Watch Her Ride"
                            (Paul Kantner)

Verse 1

        Gm7                                  [verse 1: hold 2 extra beats]
        I didn't know you were the one for me, I couldn't see
            Fm7
        But you were waiting for
        Gm7
        Someone to come along and help you out to sing your song
           Fm7
        And I was changing

Chorus

        Ebm7  Fm7
        All I see is you
        Ebm7  Fm7            Gm7   [1: Dm7, to post-chorus; 2: D, to bridge]
        All I feel is you for me

Post-chorus:

                     Cm7                     Dm7
        And I would really like to watch you ride
             Cm7           Dm7
        And always feel you by my side
                Cm7                      Dm7
        I would really like to watch you ride
              Ebm7
        All on me

Verse 2

        Now I go stumblin' to the sky and I seem to fly so high
        I see you, I feel you
        You have a way of walkin' 'round, your feet they never touch the ground
        And you are shining

[repeat chorus; to bridge]

Bridge

        [8-bar bass solo over D]

        D
        Times don't change
        Times don't ever change for me and I know
        That you could be
        The only thing in my world
        The only thing that my mind could find for love
        Love and peace of mind for me
        For me...

        Gm7     Fm7
        Oh, oh, oh...

Verse 3

        Your shadow in the morning sun becomes my fun and we can say
        I love you, I love you
        Now morning shines on silver beaches, your life flashes through the
            reaches
        Of my mind, of my mind

Coda

           Gm7
        Of my mind
               Cm7                     Dm7
        And my mind becomes alive with you
             Cm7            Dm7
        It's all that I can do
               Cm7                      Dm7
        To sit here and let you blow my mind
                Cm7              Dm7
        Blow my mind, you're so fine
              Cm7             Dm7
        In my mind, you're so fine
                       Cm7             Dm7
        [Paul:]  In my mind, you're so fine
        [Grace:] (...fine)     In my mind, you're so fine
                       Cm7         Dm7
        [Paul:]  In my mind, in my mind
        [Grace:]        In my mind, you're so fine
                            Cm7      Dm7
        [Paul:]  You're so fine
        [Grace:] In my mind

Notes:

        The chords may sound like 7#9s, but there's definitely no major
        third in them.  They're actually minor 7ths voiced with the 7th
        and 3rd on top, with the low E tuned down to D to allow the root
        to be played on the lowest string without an otherwise-impossible
        finger reach:

        Gm7  555766     Fm7  333544     Ebm7  111322

        Cm7  111111     Dm7  111111
