Every Flower

Every Flower- 1979 Public Domain Foundation, Inc.
Noel Stookey, Bob Milstein, Peter Yarrow

A printer friendly .pdf version of this song is available. It requires a free copy of Adobe Reader. You can get the reader at www.adobe.com


While these are the chords that Noel plays, you must tune your guitar DOWN one
full step in order to match the recorded pitch (D G C F A D).


             

G              2                3   4

Every flower's reaching for the sun



               

G           5              Em              G7

Every petal opens when the day has just be-gun



             

Cmaj7       F7              8       B7          Em

Even in the city where they grow up through the street



                                  

      Asus              A7                            11  12

Every blossom needs the sunshine to make its life com-plete.



            

Bm7             B7               Em   G7

Torn out by the roots and cast a-side



             

    Cmaj7           Dsus         D  Dm,6,9   E7

And some might be arranged for a bride





            

  Cmaj7           F7             Bm7  E7

A flower's just a seed when it's young



                

    Am7            D7               G

And every flower's reaching for the sun.





Instrumental Break







            

Bm7              B7             Em   G7

Some are bent by fears they can-not see





                  

    Cmaj7               Dsus         D    Dm6,9  E7

And some are touched by Love and set free





              

  Cmaj7           F7             Bm7    E7

A flower's just a seed when it's young





          

    Am7            D7

And every flower's reaching



      

   Bm7            Gb,5,6

Oh every flower's reaching





         

G              Am7      D7      G

Every flower's reaching for the sun.
