Generosity

Play in G.  On the record it’s capo 5, I now do it capo 3


Intro: gggc/gggc
 
Verse 1
G
I trust in the power of generosity
 
And give her a shawl I can’t afford
 
While she’s gone I’m the one who stays warm
 
Am                                      D
Thinking about that shawl over her shoulders
 
G
I trust in the power of generosity
 
And give him a twenty dollar bill
 
He stands alone at the intersection
 
Am                             D
But he’s given me a sense of connection

Chorus
                     Em            C                  G
What’s this secret I’ve stumbled on to
 
                         D                               Em
Something we all should have been told
 
                      C          G
Maybe you always knew
 
                           D                     Em
For me I didn’t get it ‘til I got older
 
                                        C            G
But that’s better than never knowing
 
                           D        G
The power of generosity

Verse 2 (Same chords as verse 1)
I trust in the power of generosity
 
And give a party for a friend
 
We come together to give her love she can see
 
She fills up on love but so do we
 
(Chorus)
 
Bridge:
Em                        C                               G                              D
There have been times when I didn’t know if I’d make it through
                        Em                 C                G        D
I searched desperately for remedies to feeling blue
Em                   C                  Am                       D                     G
Mindfulness, Forgiveness, Generosity – bring happiness; it’s true

Verse 3:
I trust in the power of generosity
And open my reclusive heart
It likes to hide likes to stay inside
But too much self concern and I fall apart
 
(Chorus)
