[Intro]
D G Em A D G

[Verse 1]
D
Vineland, New Jersey, farm land stretching
                   G
Far as the eye can see
Em                       A
Not much down there, but sun-scorched pastures in
D              G
Nineteen-fifty-three
D
The war is over, they came searching
               G
For a place to be
Em                            A
They left the Rhineland, they lost their homeland, and
D             G
All their family

[Chorus]
A                    G
Like feathers on the ocean breeze
          Bm           A                   D
They went spinning and tumbling 'cross the sea
Em                       G         A
Never known where they'd come down
              D
Or who they'd be
A                    G
Like heather on the hillside
          Bm                    A               D
They were bruised and they were battered by the breeze
Em              G A
Searching for a place
      D
To be free

[Instrumental]
D G Em A D G

[Verse 2]
D
Sun burn summers and frostbite winter
                  G
Kids were plainly dressed
Em                       A
Left the farmhouse when he was old enough, and
D            G
Headed out west
D
From California to Southern Africa
                   G
And all the way to France
Em                   A
And on to England to meet my mother in
D               G
Nineteen-eighty-one

[Chorus]
A                 G
a feather on the ocean breeze
        Bm           A                   D
He went spinning and tumbling 'cross the sea
Em                      G       A
Never known where he'd come down
            D
Or who he'd be
A                   G
Like heather on the hillside
       Bm                 A               D
He was bruised and he was battered by the breeze
Em              G A
Searching for a place
      D
To be free

[Bridge]
        G
Oh, and like a seed
        A#
That is flying in the wind
             D       A        Bm
In search of water, soil, and sun
        Em            E
And the birds and the bees
               A    Asus4   A
To have it all along

[Verse 3]
D
Now here I am, thirty-three years down
                  G
Two-thousand-seventeen
Em                           A                    D
I've seen the Rhineland, I've been to Vineland, I'm
                 G
a feather on the breeze
