Fred Jones Part 2 (2001)
(Ben Folds)

From: "Rockin’ the Suburbs"

Not always easy to decide which chords to play when playing a piano song
on guitar. Here is my reading of this beautiful song. Suggestions 
highly welcome!

The /D and /E are single notes leading from the C chord to F.

VERSE
C          Am7         Em          G
Fred sits alone at his desk in the dark
           C             Am7         Em           G
There's an awkward young shadow that waits in the hall
       Am              F               Am          F
He has cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes
C                        G
Things that remind him: 'Life has been good'
Fadd9                  D7sus
Twenty-five years he's worked at the paper
  C                          | G Gsus4 | G* Gsus4 G    |
A man's here to take him downstairs
        C      /D /E  F     G   [Cadd9]
And I'm sorry, Mister Jones it's time

VERSE
C            Am7    Em            G
There was no party, there were no songs
         C            Am7          Em          G
'Cause today's just a day like the day that he started
Am       F               Am              F
No one is left here that knows his first name
    C                      G
And life barrels on like a runaway train
          Fadd9                        D7sus
Where the passengers change they don't change anything
        C                       | G Gsus4 | G* Gsus4 G    |
You get off; someone else can get on
        C      /D /E  F     G   [Cadd9]
And I'm sorry, Mister Jones it's time

MIDDLE 8
    Am                                Em
The streetlight it shines through the shades
        F                      C            G
Casting lines on the floor and lines on his face
     F             C
He reflects on the day

VERSE
C             Am7            Em          G
Fred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
   C            Am7    Em     G
Projecting some slides onto a plain white
Am         F          Am           F
Canvas and traces it, fills in the spaces
   C                            G
He turns off the slides, and it doesn't look right
          Fadd9                      D7sus
Yeah, and all of these bastards have taken his place
        C                 | G Gsus4 | G* Gsus4  G7    |
He's forgotten but not yet gone


CODA
        C      /D /E  F     G
And I'm sorry, Mister Jones 
        C      /D /E  F     G  
And I'm sorry, Mister Jones 
        C      /D /E  F     G    C
And I'm sorry, Mister Jones it's time
