Clouds by Zach Sobiech

The other day, I stumbled across this song and I was blown away. The story is explained in the video.

 

Not only is the song amazing, the way it’s performed and the smile on Zach’s face absolutely made my day, which is why I wanted to cover it. I don’t normally do covers but I just loved this… Here’s my version:

 

 

Many people since have asked for the chords etc… so here are the lyrics/chords. Apologies if I have made any mistakes.

Chords:

D, F#m, Bm, G All the way through…

Bridge: F#m, BM, G, F#m, Bm, G, A.

Those are the notes played, however it is advised to play with a Capo on the 2nd fret and play these chord shapes:

C, Em, Am, Fmaj7 (003210).

Bridge: Em, Am, Fmaj7, Em, Am, Fmaj7, G.

 

I fell down down down to this dark and lonely hole,

And there was no one there to care about me, anymore.

I needed a way, to finally grab a hold,

Of that edge you were sitting and, holding a rope.

 

And we’ll go up up up but I’ll fly a little higher,

Go up, in the clouds because the view’s a little nicer.

Up here… my..dear… it won’t be long now

It won’t be long now.

 

And when we get back on land,

Well I’ll never get my chance.

Be ready to live and It’ll be ripped right out my hands.

And maybe some day, we’ll take a little ride,

And go up up up and everything will be just fine.

 

And we’ll go up up up but I’ll fly a little higher

Go up, in the clouds because the view’s a little nicer.

Up here… my..dear… it won’t be long now,

It won’t be long now.

 

BRIDGE

If only…

I had a little bit more time.

If only…

I had a little bit more time, with you…

We could go…

up up up and take that little ride.

We’ll sit there holding hands and everything will be just right.

And maybe some day, I’ll see you again.

We’ll float into the clouds and then we’ll never see the end.

 

And we’ll go up up up but I’ll fly a little higher

Go up, in the clouds because the view’s a little nicer.

 

Up here… my..dear… it won’t be long now

It won’t be long now.

 

Enjoy playing the great song and Many Thanks to Zach. Big love to you!

  1. Oh, I just found Zach, today, over yonder, somewhere. And I can’t stop watching his smile, feeling the Love, and now sadness, too, for what the world has lost… but, really, now, what he left was quite beautiful, so we’ve lost nothing, and only gained… my Heart was touched, today, will never be the same. I adore the song. Covers… sometimes ya just can’t do them, you know. Like Floyd. Who does Floyd, but Floyd. Tipper, you did good, excellent. Your voice is beautiful, your guitar right on. Especially, you didn’t go changing it up, it still “feels” just the way Zach left it. Thank you. Oh, and I enjoy your other stuff too :-) Again, thank you.

  2. Bless you Brother. You’ve made a really, really big impact in my life. And I plan to show your video and your song to my daughter to inspire her to live every moment of her life–a little higher… thank you Zach, and thank you Zach’s friends and family. Love to you all!

      1. Yes, yes, YES!! This is the very essence of the message that Zach left for us!! Push a little harder, live a little stronger… love a little longer—just take it one step at a time, and enjoy yourself every moment, every step of the way!
