"Fred Jones Pt 2"



C          Am           Em          G
Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark
           C             Am          Em           G
There's an awkward young shadow that waits in the hall
     Am              F               Am          Fm
He's cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes
C                       G
Things that remind him: 'Life has been good'
Am          
Twenty-five years
     F             
He's worked at the paper
  C                          G
A man's here to take him downstairs
        C          F
And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
G    C
It's time


There was no party, there were no songs
'Cause today's just a day like the day that he started
Noone has left here that knows his first name
And life barrels on like a runaway train
Where the passengers change
They don't change anything
You get off; someone else can get on

And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
It's time

Am                             Em
Streetlight shines through the shades
         F                      C            G
Casting lines on the floor, and lines on his face
    F              C
He reflects on the day

Instrumental
Am       Em     (x3)
D        A      D

(Verse chords)
Fred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
Projecting some slides onto a plain white
Canvas and traces it
Fills in the spaces
He turns off the slides, and it doesn't look right
Yeah, and all of these bastards
Have taken his place
He's forgotten but not yet gone

And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
And I'm sorry, Mr. Jones
It's time

the whole thing should be a half step up from how its written here, so slap a capo on 1 or play it all in bar chords a haf step up

This is the better version although I prefer the sound of just Am and Em rather than the 7ths. I like the addition of the Gsus4 and this version actually has bridge chords!

@MagicEmu, I think your guitar is tuned half step down. This sounds perfect in standard tuning with no capo.
