Elusive Butterfly
Recorded by Glen Campbell  written by Bob Lind

C                      Dm
You might wake up some morning
       G7                                  C
To the sound of something moving past your window in the wind
              Dm              G7
And if you're quick enough to rise
                 Dm                  G7               C
You'll catch the fleeting glimpse of someone's fading shadow

               Dm              G7                                
Out on the new horizon you may see

                         C
The floating motion of a distant pair of wings
           Dm                  G7
And if the sleep has left your ears
               Dm                G7              C
You might hear footsteps running through an open meadow

            Dm     G7          C
Don't be concerned it will not harm you
          G7                            C
It's only me pursuing something I'm not sure of
          Dm     G7           C        
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
            G7                          C
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love

                        Dm                   G7
You might have heard my footsteps echo softly
                            C      
In the distance through the canyons of your mind
             Dm               G7           
I might have even called your name
         Dm              G7             C      
As I ran searching after something to believe in

                       Dm                            G7
You might have seen me running through the long
                       C             
Abandoned ruins of the dreams you left behind
         Dm               G7
If you remember something there
            Dm                G7             C
That glided past you followed close by heavy breathing

            Dm     G7          C
Don't be concerned it will not harm you
          G7                            C
It's only me pursuing something I'm not sure of
          Dm     G7           C        
Across my dreams with nets of wonder
            G7                          C
I chase the bright elusive butterfly of love
