Colours Of The Wind - Disney's Pocahontas

These are the piano/keyboard notes for how to play Colours Of The Wind from the original Disney soundtrack of Pocahontas, sung by Judy Kuhn.

Verse 1:

You think I'm an ignorant savage
G#   C#   C#  D# E D# B  C# G#


And you've been so many  places; I guess it must be so
G#   G#     C#  C# C# D# E C#  D# D# C# B    C# D#

But still I   cannot see, if   the savage one is me
D#  E  D# C# G# B    C# D# E D#   C# G# B

How can there be so much that you don't know?
C#  C#    D#  E   F#  G#    E    B      A     G# 

You don't know...
E      B      C#


You think you own whatever land you land on
G#    F    G#  G#    F F D#   D#  C#   D# A#  

The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
G#    F   G# G# F   F    D#   D#  C#   F


But I  know ev'ry  rock and tree and creature
G# A# G#  G# F  F    D#  D#   C#  D# A#


Has a life, has  a  spirit, has  a  name
C# F  D#  C# D# F G#  D# F  A#


You think the only  people who are people
G#   F     G# G# F  F D#  D#  C# D# A#

Are the people who look and think like you
G# G# F G#    F      F    D#  D#  C#   F

But if  you walk the footsteps of a  stranger
G# A# G# G#  F    F D#    D# C# D# A#

You'll learn things you never knew you never  knew
C#     F       D#    C#  D# F   D#   C# A# C# C#


Chorus:

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
F      G# C# C   C     A#  A# G# F  D#  F    G#    A#


Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
A# C#     C    C A#    A# G# G#  F    G#



Can you sing with all the voices   of   the mountain?
F    G#  C#     C   C  A#  A# G# G# A#   G# C#

Can you paint with all the colours  of   the wind?
A#   C#  D#   F    F  D# D# C# C# A# D#

Can you paint with all the colours of  the wind?
A#  C#  D#    F    F  D#  D# C# A# C# C#


Verse 2:

Come run the hidden pine trails of  the forest
G#      F  G#  G# F    F     D#  D# C# D# A# 


Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
G#        F   G#  G#   F      F D#  D# C#  F


Come roll in  all   the riches all around  you
G#    A# G# G# F    F D#  D# C# D# A#

And for once, never wonder what they're worth
C#  F   D#   C# D#  F G#   D#     F        A#


The rainstorm and the river  are my brothers
G#    F G#      G#  F   F D# D# C#  D# A#


The heron and the otter are my friends
G#   F G# G#  F   F D# D# C#  G#


And we are all connected to eachother
G#  A# G# G# F F D#  D#  C# D# A#

In  a  circle,  in    a hoop that never   ends
C# F D# C# D# F   D#  C#  A# C# C#


Bridge:

How high does the sycamore grow?
G#   C     A#   C   A# C G#   C#

If  you cut  it down then you'll never know
A# C# D# F   D#    A#  C#   F D#  D#


Chorus:


And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
F      G#   C# C   C     A#  A# G# F  D#  F    G#    A#

For whether we are white or copper-skinned
A#  C# C    C   A#  A#   G#  G# F   G# 

We need to sing with all the voices    of  the mountain
F    F    G#  C#  C     C   A# A# G# G# A#  G# C#

We need to paint with all the colours of  the wind
A#  A# C# D#    F     F  D# D# C# C# A#  D#

You can own the earth and still
A# C#   D#   F    F     D# D# 


All you'll own is earth until
C# D#    F   G# F     G# A#

You can paint with all the colours of the wind

G# A# C#     C    A# G#  F D#  C# A# C#



About Me
These notes can be used to play the song on many instruments including the flute, keyboard, recorder, piano and musical keyboard.
The piano/keyboard I use is a Casio CTK 240 Electric keyboard which is very basic but works brilliantly for beginners.
All of my posts are of the letter/alphabetical notes for many popular songs including current pop, rock, nursery rhymes, Disney and classical pieces.
I also have a YouTube channel (Mint Music) where I make videos to assist you in your learning.
