Written during the summer of 2000 in Las Cruces and Taos, NM, a touchstone to ward off the maladies of diabetes. Whoever said a miracle is easy!  I attempt here an ode to the teaching of The Great Middle Way and it’s fruit, Equilibrium. “The Flow” refers to the primary Universal force, entropy.

 

(Transposed down ½ step (to D#) on album.)

 

(Transition Chords)    G – F# – G – E    G –A – G – E  (3X)

 

E – G – D – A (2X)

 

E                         G                     D                              A

Try to be calm, I try to be cool, I tried to seem like I’d been to school.

E                                 G                    D                                     A

Aim for the middle, go high and low. Try to keep tight, but it’s out of control.

E           G                  D                                      A

Oh no, I got too high, give me a little shot, and I’ll be fine.

E           G                 D                                      A

Oh no, I got too low, give me a little sugar and watch me go.

E            G                  D                                         A

Hey Joe, Don’t let go, shimmy up the ladder, and running from the flow.

E                                                   G                                      D

Dealing with the real, while we’re spinning on a wheel, and don’t let go.

              A

Don’t let go  o  o  o…  

 

G – F# – G – E    G –A – G – E  (2X)

 

E                G                                              D                 A

Run, jump, flee from your heart, what you hide, I seek blind in the dark.

E                           G                                  D                     A

Like the world, we spin around, what you hide, I seek, it can be found.

E                           G                         D                          A

I pride myself as a steady man, however it goes, well that’s the plan.

E                              G                              D                       A

I pride myself with a steady hand, but it’s going out of control again.

 

E               G                         D                              A

Oh no, it’s out of control, my heart’s on fire like a volcano.

E               G                         D                                            A

Oh no, it’s out of control, my head’s spinning ‘round like a tornado.

E             G                 D                                         A

Hey Joe, Don’t let go, shimmy up the ladder, and running from the flow.

E                                                   G                                      D

Dealing with the real, while we’re spinning on a wheel, and don’t let go.

              A

Don’t let go  o  o  o…

 

G – F# – G – E    G –A – G – E  (2X)

(Break) E – G – D – A (2X)

 

 

E               G                         D                              A

Oh no, it’s out of control, my heart’s on fire like a volcano.

E               G                         D                                            A

Oh no, it’s out of control, my head’s spinning ‘round like a tornado.

E             G                 D                                         A

Hey Joe, don’t let go, shimmy up the ladder, and running from the flow.

E                                                   G                                      D

Dealing with the real, while we’re spinning on a wheel, and don’t let go.

               A

Don’t let go  o  o  o…
