Intro 
C               Am                         C
All work no play may have made Jack a dull boy
                Am                            C      
But all work no God has left Jack with a lost soul
               C
But he's moving on full steam
Am                               C
He's chasing the American dream
                              Am            
And he's gonna give his family finer things


C...Am...x2

verse 1
C             Am                           C
Not this time son I've no time to waste
          Am                             C
Maybe Tomorrow we'll have time to play 
                       Am             C
And then he slips into his new BMW
                          Am                       D
And drives farther and farther and farther away

Pre-chorus 1
D                     F                          C
'Cause  he works all day and tries to sleep at night 
D                             F                C
He says things will get better; better in time

Chorus 
C                  Fm                   Am          
'Cause he works and he builds with his own two hands
C            Fm               Am                  
And he pours all he has in a castle made with sand 
C             Fm             Am             
But the wind and the rain are comin' crashing in 
C             Fm                          C      C Am Fm
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands
               C Am Fm
His kingdom stands

Verse 2
C                   Am
His American dream is begining to seem 
C                             Am
More and More like a nightmare
                       C
with every passing day
                                 Am
"Daddy, can you come to my game?" 
                                   C
"Oh Baby, please don't work late."
                         Am
Another wasted weekend
                           D
And they are slipping away
Pre-Chorus 2
D                     F                          C
'Cause he works all day and lies awake at night 
D                             F                
He tells them  things will get better
                                    C
It'll just take a little more time

Chorus

Verse 3
C                              Am          
He used to say, "Who ever died with the most toys wins."
C                         Am
But if he loses his soul, what has he gained in the end
C
I'll take a shack on a rock 
Am                        D
Over a castle in the sand


Pre-chorus 3
D                     F                          C
Now he works all day and cries alone at night 
D                             F                
It's not getting any better 

Looks like he's running out of time

Chorus

Outro 
C
All they really wanted was you
C
All they really wanted was you
C
All they really wanted was you
