LYRICS/CHORDS

I'd Rather Press On


(C) Is it my imagination or is (F) it my iron pride
I (G) wonder if it matters much if (Am) time is on my side
I'd rather press (C) on, I don't wanta rest (F) easy
(Am) Anywhere I (G) stray I will (C) make it a brand new (F) day
Anyway that is (C) all I gotta (G) say
I'd (Am) rather be by the seaside than be (C) playing a one night stand
I've been (Am) too wrapped up in (C) my own dreams
I will (F) change things if I (G) can
I gotta press (C) on, don't wanta rest (F) easy
(Am) Wouldn't it feel (G) fine to re(C)turn to the women and the (F) wine
And all of the (C) sunshine that we (G) knew (Em) (G) (C)

You will never know what blue is until you have played the game
Til you live life in solitare where no one knows your name
I'd rather press on, I don't want to rest easy
Have it anyway you will, I will be with you right up until
The spell is broken and all is well

If you'd rather be by the seashore, well I sure can understand
Are you too wrapped up in your own scene, I would change things if I can
I'd rather press on, don't want to rest easy
Wouldn't it feel fine, but remembering the rhythm and the rhymes
And all of the good times makes me blue

Wouldn't it feel fine to return to the women and the wine
And all of the sunshine that we knew
