INTRO
Am      F      C      E7
Am      F      C      E7


VERSE
       Am
Man us kids, we can be so cruel
     F
Teen armies never suffered no fools
    C
But Benny was a sucker
                        E7
Man he never really fit in
     Am
Poor Benny had to do his time
     F
Just breathing was a capital crime
C
Man we made him suffer
                        E7
Benny never really knew why


PRE CHORUS
Am                                   F
 This time I think we've pushed too far
C                             Em
 This time we've opened up a scar
Am                                  F
 This time we've pushed him to the edge
F#dim                       E7
 This time it's really gone straight to his head


CHORUS
Am
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    F
I think he might've jumped this time
                   C
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         E7
I think we've pushed him way too far
Am
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    F
I think he might've jumped this time
                   C
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         E7
I think we've pushed him way too far
E7
Way too far


VERSE
           Am
So come on Benny step on back from that ledge
          F
'Cause we didn't mean a word that we said
        C
Yeah we thought your skin was thicker
         E7
Than the lines that we fed


PRE CHORUS
Am                        F
 I saw him rocking on the edge
         C
With the years of anger, isolation
Em
Running through his head
Am                             F
Nah, Benny don't step off that ledge
        F#dim                    E7
For the world will drown in your river running red


CHORUS
Am
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    F
I think he might've jumped this time
                   C
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         E7
I think we've pushed him way too far, no no
Am
Benny's on the rooftop man
                    F
I think he might've jumped this time
                   C
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         E7
I think we've pushed him way too far


BRIDGE
                  Am
Yeah, he might've jumped this time
            F
He might've jumped this time
            F#dim
He might've jumped this time
               E7
Benny might've jumped this time
                  Am
Yeah, he might've jumped this time
            F
He might've jumped this time
               F#dim
Benny might've jumped this time
                    E7
I think he might've jumped
     E7
this time


INSTRUMENTAL BREAK
Am      F      C      E7


CHORUS
Am
Benny's on the rooftop man
                  F
I think he really jumped this time
                   C
You didn't see the look in his eye
                         E7
I think we've pushed him way too far


OUTRO
Am
Benny's on the rooftop man
                  F
I think he really jumped this time
                  F#dim
I think he really jumped this time
          E7
He really jumped this time
          E7
He really jumped this time

END ON Em
