Main Riff

You know Ive swam across the top of the bottomless seas
And Ive met with the mayor and seen the same fear in him as me
Ive borrowed from a beggar and Ive stolen from the store
And Ive gained a little depth but Ive shallowed even more you know
This lifes been good to me the passin not too unkind
I learnt to beg and steal and use the resources of my mind
They say that the kingly thing to do is to sit in the lowest seat
And I learnt to do my talkin with the sharpest knife to carve the beast


Bridge: Bridge guitar/ Banjo

And Ive camped in the deserts where the rivers run dry
Ive sang to the earth and to the moon and to the sky
I caught the train to Morocco by the river there, just
Smoking smooth hasish and breathing bitter Marakash air you know
When youre staring at girls and all you can see is their eyes
They might wear a veil they might wear a disguise
But if you should know to hide one thing, you should know its them eyes cause
They tell too many truths, too many stories, to few lies

Bridge: Bridge guitar/ Banjo dobro

Main riff (strummed chords i.e. Dm Shape, Bb shape, A shape, Bb shape)

And now the old are getting young, and the young are getting poor
The sick are taking pills to bribe the reaper from their door
Its not yet winter, but its already cold
And soon youll hear them tell tales of young payin to be old
In shuffles lawyers you can hear them in their ranks
Sleepin up in the rafters or in their paper tanks
Religion is coming down you can hear it on the air
Some believe that were believers but I believe we just dont care so



Main Riff

Turn on the news and see newsmen running from a noose
Its all an advertisement selling you the truth
Walls will fall and walls will be built
And wars will be fought and blood will be spilt
But why get involved when theres so much to do?
Its such a big world and youre just a little you
Hours, minutes, seconds, well they be tickin down
And if you wake or if you sleep this crazy place still spins round

Bridge: Bridge guitar/ Banjo  dobro and acoustic guitar in octaves

Breakdown (pluck chords)

But dont heed my words or believe the rhymes I say
Im just another beggar lookin for a place to play
Im the one standing on the street at night and
Im the one that lost front teeth in a drunken fight and
Im the one the hopeless the unemployed that you pass
Im the lost the addict the drunk and the destroyed
Im the one that these kids wish they could have been and
Im the one that had to live with these dying dreams and
Im the one begging you all to come along and
Im the one dyin to sing you the last song
Im the one and theres more to take my place
just, look into the mirror and youll see it in your face


Bridge: Bridge guitar/ Banjo

Main riff / with outro: banjo trance riff
