“R U Ready?”
Ringo Starr

D
Are you ready to cross over?
Are you ready to let go,
D  G                                                               D
To face the final curtain in the land of I don’t know?
D                  Bm                    G                   D
Jesus was a wise man, and everyone’s a saint.
D           Em                  A
Are you ready to cross over?
A           G              D
Are you ready?

You can read the good or bad books,
Read them fast or slow.
But is it fact or fiction?
There’s just one way to know.
Buddha was dancing underneath the Bodhi tree;
He was ready to cross over.  He was ready.

D           G           D
So, why hold on, hold on?
D   G
It’s good that you believe,
G         F#
But it’s better if you know.
F#     G           D – Bm – G
Don’t hold on, h   o   l   d       on;
G                             Bm                                A                D
Someone’s there to catch you when you’re ready to let go.

I was sitting by the Ganges looking for another way.
But all roads lead to heaven,
No matter what they say.
Krishna was a good man.
Why was he so blue?
He was ready to cross over; he was ready.

So, why hold on, hold on?
It’s good that you believe,
But it’s better if you know.
Don’t hold on, hold on;
Someone’s there to catch you when you’re ready to let go.

(Play me to heaven…)

SOLO

Are you ready to cross over?
Are you ready to let go,
To face the final curtain in the land of I don’t know?
Everyone can get there, ’cause we all have a soul.
Are you ready to cross over?
Are you ready?

So, why hold on, hold on?
It’s good that you believe,
But it’s better if you know.
Don’t hold on, hold on;
Someone’s there to catch you when you’re ready to let go.
Someone’s there to catch you when you’re ready to let go.
Someone’s there to catch you when you’re ready to let go.
