Let's invite the band in now, to play 'Begin Again' with us.

You'll find the lyrics, and chords for this song at the 'Image Tab', and you can print them out by going to the 'Print This Lesson' tab.

Do your best to keep up with the rhythm, and remember, even if you make mistakes, you are getting excellent practice!

The best thing to do if you fall behind or make a mistake is to stop playing for a moment, and try to get your bearings. See if you can jump in with me the next time a new verse or chorus starts.

As tempting as it can be to want to go back and 'fix' your mistakes, it guarantees that you will be lagging behind as the song marches on without you!

Rather, make a mental note of your mistakes, and drill yourself on the skills you need to improve to have better luck keeping up with the song.

Eventually, it will all come together, and you'll be surprised to remember it ever felt this difficult!

BEGIN AGAIN (lyrics)

VERSE:
Cowgirl Jane fell off her horse
Really freaked her out of course
Nothing broken, just a bruise
Now Cowgirl Jane has got to choose
What does a Cowgirl do now?

VERSE:
Dominique was counting sheep
Desperate to get to sleep
Lost his count at 48
Now Dominique is wide awake again
So he goes right on back to One
(sheep, Two sheep...)

CHORUS:
And I say oooo
Sometimes the only thing to do
Is Begin Again
Oooo, the only thing to do is Begin Again

VERSE:
Learning how to speak Chinese
Did not come to Ed with ease
Characters and conjugations
Twisty tongue pronunciations
And then the summer came

VERSE:
And Ed he set his books aside
Took the misses for a ride
Summer days flew like the breeze
Now he can't say thank you,
Can't say please
What became of Ed's Chinese?

CHORUS:
And I say oooo
Sometimes the only thing to do
Is Begin Again
Oooo, the only thing to do is Begin Again

VERSE:
So if your horse has thrown you down
If your sheep are leaving town
If you forgot your ABCs
You're not alone - just look at me
Everybody knows that kind of day

CHORUS:
And I say oooo
Sometimes the only thing to do
Is Begin Again
Oooo, the only thing to do is Begin Again

OUTRO:
The only thing to do
The only thing to do is Begin Again
