         C/G            
When I grow up I want to be a tree
                F     
Want to make my home with the birds and the bees
        C/G              
And the squirrels, they can count on me
     G                                    Gsus4
When I grow up to be a tree
 
               C/G            
I'll let my joints get stiff, put my feet in the ground
                F
Take the winters off and settle down
  C/G            
Keep my clothes till they turn brown
         G                                 Gsus4
When I grow up, I'm gonna settle down
 
Chorus:
                  C/G                   F
I'm gonna reach, I'm gonna reach
                  C/G                      G
I'm gonna reach, reach for the sky
                  C/G                   F
I'm gonna reach, I'm gonna reach
                   C/G                   G       Gsus4
I'm gonna reach, ‘til I know why
 
               C/G
When the spring comes by I'm gonna get real green
           F
If the dogs come by I'm gonna get real mean
C/G
On windy days, I'll bend and lean
         G                                                  Gsus4
When I grow up I'm gonna get real green

F                       / F C/E Dm7 - /         C (½)         C/B (½)   Am7 (½)   C/G (½)
If I should fall in storm or    slumber,  Please don't turn me   into         lumber
F                       / F C/E Dm7 - /   G                             Gsus4 
I'd rather be a Louisville slug-ger    Swinging for the seats

I'm gonna reach, ‘til I know why         ‘til I know why
