“Wishful Thinking”
Wilco

D     F#m     Bm     E     G     D     G

Em                                 D
Fill up your mind with all it can know;
G                                      Em
Don’t forget that your body will let it all go.
Em                                    D                             G
Fill up your mind with all it can know…
D                         Bm              G                   D
What would we be without wishful thinking?

F#m     Bm     E     G     D     G

D                                          F#m
Chambers of chains with red plastic mouths,
Bm                             E
The inside of outside… No one has found
G                              D                        G
How to unring the bell, it’s just as well.

The turntable sizzles, the casting of spells,
The pressure devices… Hell in a nutshell.
Is any song worthy singing if it doesn’t help?

Fill up your mind with all it can know;
Don’t forget that your body will let it all go.
Fill up your mind with all it can know…
‘Cause what would love be without wishful thinking?

Open your arms as far as they will go.
Take off your dress; an embarrassing poem
Was written when I was alone in love with you.

I shook down these lines to shine up the streets,
I got up off my hands and knees to thank my luck stars
That you’re not me…

D                         Bm                G                D
What would we be without wishful thinking?
Am                      Em                G                D
What would we be without wishful thinking?
Am                      Em                G                D           Bm
What would we be without wishful thinking?

Am     Em     G     D     F#m     Bm     E
