                A       D
            I.  I saw a forest
                              G
                from far off afar,
                             Eb
                so sweet and green
                       Ab      Bb
                like a Cuban cigar.
                    Bb         Eb
                but nearer and nearer,
                                    Ab
                the trees called my name:
                               E
                "we really are diff'rent,
                   A             Bb6
                we just look the same."


 INSTRUMENTAL:  Bb6 - A7sus4 - G
                G - A7sus4 - Bb6
                Bb6 - A7sus4 - G
                G - A7sus4 - Bb6


                  A         D
           II.  I saw human beings,
                              G
                or so I would try.
                              Eb
                but they kept throwing
                Ab          Bb
                motes in my eye.
                Bb             Eb
                class and age, sex and race
                           Ab
                I would forget.
                              E
                but someone reminds me:
                       A         Bb6
                "we're not equal yet."


 INSTRUMENTAL:  Bb6 - A7sus4 - G
                G - A7sus4 - Bb6
                Bb6 - A7sus4 - G

                    A          D
          III.  the man on the street
                                   G
                and the man in the moon
                                    Eb
                and the girl in the shadow
                       Ab             Bb
                says, "I'm diff'rent, too."
                    Bb      Eb
                but I see a forest
                            Ab
                with Eden below.
                                  E
                the trees are all diff'rent,
                    A               Bb6
                but look where they grow.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  Bb6 - A7sus4 - G
                G - A7sus4 - Bb6
                Bb6 - A7sus4 - G
                G - A7sus4 - Bb6
