...THE ASCENT OF STAN... by Ben Folds
------------------------.............

*from 'Rockin' The Suburbs' (2001)*


*CAPO 3rd FRET*

(Original Key: Gm)


Intro:

Em  B7/D#  D  A7/C# (x2), C

Verse 1:

G      D/F#         C/E           D6 D
 Pangs, of silence, from the room up-stairs.
C         G
 Hows the view there?
G                         D7
 Do you read what they're saying about you?

Verse 2:

G            D7/F#   C/E           D6
 That you're no fun, since the war was won.
C             G
 In fact, you have become,
G           D7                     Am7          C
 All of the things you've always... run... away from.

Chorus 1:

              Em    B7/D#           D   A/C#
The ascent of Stan; textbook hippie man.
Em  B7/D#              D   A/C#
    Get rest while you can.

Verse 3:

G               D/F#      C/E           D6 D
 So where'd the years go?  All the time we had?
C      G         G          D7
 Being poor was, not such a drag in hindsight.

Verse 4:

G        D7/F#  C/E       D6         C      G
 And you wonder, why your father was, so re-signed.
G              D7          Am7   C
 Now you don't wonder, any-more...

Chorus 2:

              Em    B7/D#           D   A/C#
The ascent of Stan; textbook hippie man.
Em  B7/D#            D    A/C#              (C)
     Textbook hippie man, get rest while you can.

Bridge 1:

C    D7 G                        C
 (Sta...n); once you wanted revo-lution,
    D7 G                        C
(Sta...n); now you're the insti-tution.
    D7 G
(Sta...n):
                        C    D7  G7
How's it feel to be the man?
                     (Em)
It's no fun to be the man.

Interlude:

Em  B7/D#  D  A/C#,
C  G, F#7  F#  Bsus4  B

Break:

G     D/F#  C/E     D6     C     G
 La...da da, da da, da da, da da da.
G/B    D7               Am7  C
 La da da da da, da da, la...
    Am7                 C
And now watch it all go down.

Chorus 3:

              Em    B7/D#           D   A/C#
The ascent of Stan; textbook hippie man.
Em       B7/D#           D
 (Stan), textbook hippie man.
A/C#               (C)
 Get rest while you can.

Bridge 2:

C    D7 G                        C
 (Sta...n); once you wanted revo-lution,
    D7 G                        C
(Sta...n); now you're the insti-tution.
    D7 G
(Sta...n):
                        C    D7
How's it feel to be the man?
G
 It's no fun to be the man.
