One, Two, Three, Four
   INTRO
   G   D   AM   EM   X3 
   G   D   AM
VERSE
 G        D          AM   EM
And then the past recedes
G          D        AM   EM
And I won't be involved
G          D       AM   EM
The effort to be free
G            D          AM
Seems pointless from above
VERSE
G           D          AM   EM
You're looking down at me
G        D        AM   EM
I'd rather stay below
G                D          AM   EM
Than have you staring up at me
G        D           AM     B
Is nowhere I want to go
CHORUS
C              AM           EM               D
Ay, This business of how long we try to stay alive
C           AM                EM                
Why to be here you first got to die
        D   
So I gave it a try
      C                G               AM
And what do you know time was so long ago

VERSE
G          D        AM   EM
And things come back you see
G          D        AM   EM
To where they don't belong
G          D        AM   EM
And every drop of sea 
G          D      AM     B
Is the whole ocean

VERSE
C           AM         
I lied to the greatest thieves
       EM             D
About anything and everything
C        AM         EM           
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
     D
I'm out of reach
C                G    
I can't play it safe
              AM
But I might just in case

Solo (see other tab)

C                    G    
I'm disguised as a reaching hand    
        AM
I'm a working man
C                        G
I don't understand why clock out
       AM
Comes so slow every time
C                  G             AM
That's one line I stay right behind
C                  G             AM   B
That's one line I stay right behind.

 G   D   AM   EM   X3 
 G   D   AM   B    G

=D  Enjoy

EM is actually E in the verse
and the chorus is very wrong

Em is CORRECT, but the B is B7
The chorus is wrong. Its, I think:

C B7 Em D... etc, etc

C D7 EM D
Ay, This business of how long we try to stay alive
C D7 EM
Why to be here you first got to die

So I gave it a try
