Do You Know Where You're Going To?

(Theme From "Mahogany")

Words & Music:

Gerry Goffin & Mike Masser



C      F                 Dm

Do you know where you're going to?

E7              Am                  Am7

Do you like the things that life is showing you?

              Dm       E7      A

Where are you going to, do you know?

Do you get what you're hoping for?

When you look behind you there's no open doors.

What are you hoping for, do you know?


B7    E                         F#

Once, we were standing still in time.

Bm          E              A      D   A

Chasing the fantasies that filled our minds.

A               B7               G#m        C#m

You knew how I loved you, but my spirit was free.

F#m7             B7                Bm            E7

Laughing at the questions that you once asked of me.


CHORUS:  [first half only]


Now looking back at all we've had.

We let so many dreams just slip through our hands.

Why must we wait so long before we see

How sad the answers to those questions can be?
