25 Or 6 To 4
Words & Music:
Robert Lamm (Chicago)
[the basic song riff consists of the notes A G F# F E (frets: 5 3 2 1 0) – played on the low E string. Can be extrapolated to the chord progression: Am Am/G Am/F# F E. Play this riff twice for an intro, then continue it through the verses.]
Waiting for the break of day, searching for something to say.
Flashing lights against the sky, giving up I close my eyes.
F C G F
Sitting cross-legged on the floor -- 25 or 6 to 4.
Staring blindly into space, getting up to splash my face.
Wanting just to stay awake, wondering how much I can take.
Should I try to do some more -- 25 or 6 to 4.
Feeling like I ought to sleep, spinning room is sinking deep.
Searching for something to say, waiting for the break of day.
25 or 6 to 4 – 25 or 6 to 4.
