From Silver Lake-Jackson Browne  
[Intro]
D     G     D      G     
[Verse 1]
A                   D  G
Did you see our brother
       Asus4           A
He was here the other day
       F#m          Bm              Em
But he only came to say that he was leaving
        A          D   G
Did you see his lady
        Asus4               A
She was looking where he'd gone
        F#m            Bm              Em
But she wasn't letting on that she was grieving
A              D
She's bound to go
  G                                     A                      D
Perhaps she'll find him waiting for some boat in some city far away

A              G     D
She's bound to go

[Verse 2]
Asus4       D    G       Asus4               A
Lately I remember afternoons of smoke and wine
          F#m              Bm                 Em
There was nothing we could find but peace and pleasure
A                 D       G 
And long ago he told me
        Asus4           A         F#m            Bm             Em
That he wanted just to be on his way across some sea no man can measure
A           D
He won't be back,
        G                                A                      D
And the sun may find him sleeping in the dust of some ruin far away
A           G       D
He won't be back

[Chorus 1]
G                                              D
Early today as I watched while the skyline was shaking
          Asus4
I heard a rumbling
G                                   D
Early today the mechanical city was waking
              Asus4
And I ran out stumbling, mumbling
Asus4                                      A
Out through the laughter of children and dogs

[Verse 3]
A                D        G         
Do you know the mad man.
         A
Yes he lives upon the hill.
              F#m             Bm               Em
And they say haunted voices fill his head with warnings.
A          D             G     A                 
Saying to a shadow, that the time is drawing near.
          F#m       Bm                          Em
When the world must disappear, one of these mornings.
A            D 
Maybe he'll go.

G                                    A                              D   G D G A
Perhaps he'll take his shadow and be off to find his brother far away.
A            G D 
Maybe he'll go.

[Chorus 2]
   G                                         D
Early today, as my friend the policeman was sneering.
           Asus
I heard a rumbling.
G                                         D
Early today as the men of my office were leering.
             Asus
I ran out stumbling, mumbling, 
Asus4                                      A
Out through the laughter of children and dogs.

[Verse 4]
A               D      G
Did you see our brother
       Asus4           A
He was here the other day
       F#m          Bm                Em
But he only came to say that he can't breathe here
        A         D   G
Did you see his lady
        Asus4             A
She was reaching for his hand
        F#m            Bm                 Em
Just as if to tell her man that she can't either
