How many days will the wet weather last?
A                      G                     E/G#
  I want know will the clouds when they roll back
         A             F#m
Reveal a man in an old mac
            Bsus4        B
Living on a park bench
               Esus4    E
Sitting on his own

VERSE

  Cut to the rain as it runs down the glass
A                        G                 E/G#
  Eventually through the lightning and thunder
         A           F#m
We see a man going under
               Bsus4     B
This is how it happens
                Esus4    E
This is what he said


CHORUS
E            A
I don't need love
           E         A
Though temptation is sweet
E            F#m
Give me your hand
         D          A
'Til I'm back on my feet
E              A
You're always telling me 
E        A
About my misery
     E                  F#m
I've seen things you'll never see
D           [ A ]
Don't pity me

VERSE
Asus2
  Focus in on the breath of a man
A                         G                E/G#
  Who takes a brown paper bag from his knapsack
            A                 F#m
Between his whispers and wise cracks
                    Bsus4     B
He's looking for permission
                 Esus4    E
Screaming at the sky


CHORUS
E            A
I don't need love
           E         A
Though temptation is sweet
E            F#m
Give me your hand
         D          A
'Til I'm back on my feet
E              A
You're always telling me 
E        A
About my misery
     E                  F#m
I've seen things you'll never see
D           [ A ]
Don't pity me

MIDDLE 8
C  
  I'll be right again
C                    Asus2   A
  Be upright without you
C
  I'll stand up again
C                      Asus2    A
  Kick up a fuss again too


VERSE
Asus2
Cut back again to a girl walking by
A                         G                E/G#
  Until the feet that are all shoes and no socks
           A            F#m
Climb an invisible soap box
                Bsus4     B
Laughing at the traffic
                Esus4    E
Shouting at the world


CHORUS
E            A
I don't need love
           E         A
Though temptation is sweet
E            F#m
Give me your hand
         D          A
'Til I'm back on my feet
E              A
You're always telling me 
E        A
About my misery
     E                  F#m
I've seen things you'll never see
D           [ A ]
Don't pity me

OUTRO (= middle 8)
C  
  I'll stand up again
C                    Asus2 
Kick up a fuss again too
C
  I'll be right again
C                  Asus2 
Be upright without you

   (We see a life through the eyes of a man
   As he live and he dies
   By a simple tattoo)


OUTRO (= middle 8)
C  
  I'll be back again
C                   Asus2 
  When I land on my feet
C  
  I'll stand up again
C                              Asus2 
  Kick up a fuss again, wouldn't you

   (Well there you go, though we tried hard to know him
   It's there on his face
   He's a case where there's clearly no hope)


OUTRO (= middle 8)
C     
  Give me your hand again
C                      Asus2
  'Til I land again

  (His face starts to fade
   As we pull down the shade
   And the picture we made
   Is in glorious cinemascope)


C
  I'll be back ...
C                Asus2
  I'll be back 

(repeat and FADE)
