4 Supertramp Songs

I'm always being asked if I have the chords to songs by 
Supertramp. I remember the high-pitched vocals of  
guitarist Roger Hodgson
 
The band seemed to get very popular real fast. But I thought 
the band broke up 20 years ago. My friend from Norway 
loves their music. So, to answer some of my dear reader's 
requests, here are a few chord charts to some popular songs

3. Supertramp - Easy Does It (Chord Chart)

D(riff)
And if my thoughts had wings,
D
I'd be the bird that sings,
D             Em7        A
I'd fly where love isn't shy
             Em7         A
And everyone is willing to try.
      D
And if we had the time,
D
And time's so hard to find,
         Em7           A
I can't believe what you say,
          Em7          A
Start sending those shadows away,
           G          D
And if you know who you are,
           G          D
You are your own superstar,

And only you can shape the movie that you make,
            Em7           A
So when the lights disappear,
            Em7           A
And only the silence is here,
              Em7                                           A
Watch yourself, easy does it, easy does it, easy while you wait.

And if you know who you are,
You are your own superstar,
And only you can shape the music that you make.
So when the crowds disappear,
And only the silence is here
Watch yourself, easy does it, easy does it, easy while you wait.

4. Supertramp - The Logical Song (Chord Chart)

Dm                                Bb           Am7 
When I was young, it seemed that llfe was so wonderful, 
   c                 Bb          
a miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical. 
             Dm                                   Bb         Am 
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily, 
     c              Bb           
Oh, joyfully, oh, playfully, watching me. 

             Dm                         Bb           Am7
But then they sent me away, to teach me how to be sensible, 
c              Bb          
logical, oh, responsible practical. 
           Dm                           Bb         Am 
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable, 
    c             Bb             
oh, clinical, oh, intellectual, cynical. 

          F                            Dm
There are times when all the world's asleep, 
 Dm                     Bb                     Eb 
the questions run too deep for such a simple man 
          F                                 Dm 
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned? 
 Dm               Bb                          Eb
I know it sounds absurd. Please tell me who I am. 

 Dm                              Bb             Am7              
Watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, 
  c          Bb           
a liberal, oh fanatical, criminal. 
              Dm                               Bb              Am 
Oh, won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're acceptable, 
   c               Bb            
respectable, oh, presentable, a vegetable! 

   F                                  Dm
There are times, when all the world's asleep, 
                      Bb                     Eb
the questions run too deep for such a simple man 
          F                                  Dm
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned? 
                  Bb                          Eb 
I know it sounds absurd. Please tell me who I am.
