[Intro]

D A/C# Bm  A  G     A  A


[Verse 1]

D                A                  Bm                     G
  A lie to say, "O my mountain has coal veins and beds to dig.
D               A                  G               A
  Five hundred men with axes and they all dig for me."
D                A                 Bm            G
  A lie to say, "O my river where many fish do swim,
D              A                      G              A
  Half of the catch is mine when you haul your nets in."


[Chorus]

        G               D               G          G       A
Oh no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
    G          D           G
No devil or redeemer will cheat him.
       G        D                 Bm     A    G   G G  A
He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold.


[Verse 2]

D                A                 Bm                  G
  A lie to say, "O my mine gave a diamond as big as a fist."
D                 A                      G             A
  But with every gem in his pocket, the jewels he has missed.
D                A               Bm                    G
  A lie to say, "O my garden is growing taller by the day."
D          A                 G                A
  He only eats the best and tosses the rest away.


[Chorus]

        G               D               G          G       A
Oh no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
    G          D           G
No devil or redeemer will cheat him.
       G        D                 Bm     A    G
He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold
 G   G       A
Six deep in the grave.


[Solo]

D  A  Bm  G    D  A  G  A


[Bridge]

    G                D             G            A
His oldest pain and fear in life,     there'll not be time
(Something is out of reach, something he wanted)

    G                D             G            A
His oldest pain and fear in life,     there'll not be time, oh no
(Something is out of reach, he's being taunted)

    G                D             G
                             Hey, hey
(Something is out of reach)

     D  A/C#  Bm   A   G              A
That he can't beg or steal... Nor can he buy


[Verse 3]

D               A                Bm                   G
  A lie to say "O my forest has trees that block the sun
D             A                     G          A
  And when I cut them down I don't answer to anyone."


[Chorus and Ending]

             G               D               G          G       A
No, no, no, never will he believe that his greed is a blinding ray.
    G          D           G
No devil or redeemer will cheat him.
       G        D                 Bm     A
He'll take his gold to where he's lying cold.

G   D   G   G A   G   D   G   G D  
La la la la la...

 Bm      A       G     G G   A     D
Lonely, lonely, lonely, lonely man
