I felt that the other versions of this song were a little off, mainly
because they lacked C#m and G#m chords. Play it through and let me
know what you think!

Side Note:

The Introduction and Bridge sections are slightly simplified with
the E and G#m chords. It sounds like 3 or 4 chords are played after the
B in quick succession, however the E and G#m chords complement these 
chords well so the E and G#m chords are the only ones needed.

Intro:

|C#m B E 

C#m B G#m |  x4



C#m B G#m
       He seemed no different from the rest
C#m B E
       Just a healthy normal boy
C#m B G#m
       His mama always did her best
C#m B E
       And he was his daddy's pride and joy

C#m B G#m
      He learned to walk and talk on time
C#m B E
      But never cared much to be held
C#m B G#m
      And steadily he would decline
C#m B E
      Into his solitary shell.

B                    A               E
As a boy, he was considered somewhat odd.
B                              A     E
Kept to himself most of the time.
B                        A               E
He would daydream in and out of his own world,
       A                       B
But in every other way, he was fine.

       E
He's a Monday morning lunatic
   B
Disturbed from time to time.
A
Lost within himself
       E        B
In his solitary shell.

E
Temporary catatonic
B
Madman on occasion
A
When will he break out
       E        B         E
Of his solitary shell?


Bridge:

|C#m B E 

C#m B G#m |  x2



C#m B G#m
      He struggled to get through his day
C#m B E
      He was helplessly behind
C#m B G#m
      He poured himself onto the page
C#m B E
      Writing for hours at a time.

B                          A         E
As a man, he was a danger to himself.
B                          A         E
Fearful and sad most of the time.
B                          A         E
He was drifting in and out of sanity.
       A                       B
But in every other way, he was fine.

       E
He's a Monday morning lunatic
   B
Disturbed from time to time
  A
Lost within himself
       E        B
In his solitary shell

E
A momentary maniac
     B
with casual delusions.
A
When will he be let out
       E        B
Of his solitary shell?

After the end of the lyrics there is an instrumental part played.

If you play with Bar Chords, (as one should on this song)
You should, during the first "E" in the Chorus move every finger down one string, on "MONday" and up again on the following "MORNing"

You should be able to hear on the song when to change! :)
