PIECES OF A MAN by Gil Scott-Heron
Chorded by Levchek

INTRO: Cmaj7 Gm7

Cmaj7         Gm7
Jagged jigsaw pieces
Cmaj7           Gm7
Tossed about the room
Cmaj7            Gm7
I saw my grandma sweeping
Cmaj7             Gm7
With her old straw broom
Fmaj7                       Bbmaj7
She didn't know what she was doing
Fmaj7               G/A       Am7 Fmaj7 G7 
She could hardly understand 
Cmaj7                Gm7
That she was really sweeping up..
Cmaj7     Gm7
Pieces of a man

Cmaj7                    Gm7
I saw my daddy greet the mailman
Cmaj7                   Gm7
And I heard the mailman say
Cmaj7                              Gm7
"Now don't you take this letter to hard now Jimmy
Cmaj7                      Gm7
Cause they've laid off nine others today"
Fmaj7                      Ebmaj7
He didn't know what he was saying
Fmaj7             G/A     A7     Am7 Fmaj7 G7 
He could hardly understand
Cmaj7                  Gm7
That he was only talking to
Cmaj7      Gm7
Pieces of a man

Fmaj7                          Ab
I saw the thunder and heard the lightning!
Em                           A7
And felt the burden of his shame
Dmaj7               G
And for some unknown reason
Em                A7      Am Fmaj7 G7    
He never turned my way

Cmaj7           Gm7
Pieces of that letter
Cmaj7                  Gm7
Were tossed about that room
Cmaj7                      Gm7
And now I hear the sound of sirens
Cmaj7                   Gm7
Come knifing through the gloom
Fmaj7                     Bbmaj7 
They don't know what they are doing
Fmaj7                 G/A   A7    Am7 Fmaj7 G7 
They could hardly understand
Cmaj7                  Gm7
That they're only arresting
Cmaj7        Gm7
Pieces of a man

Cmaj7             Bbmaj7   
I saw him go to pieces
Cmaj7             Bbmaj7 
I saw him go to pieces
Cmaj7                 Bbmaj7 
He was always such a good man
Cmaj7                 Bbmaj7 
He was always such a strong man
Cmaj7                 Bbmaj7 
Yeah, I saw him go to pieces
Cmaj7             Bbmaj7 
I saw him go to pieces

OUTRO:    Cmaj7 Bbmaj7
