Pearl Jam - Off He Goes

          Am (strum Am a few times)
G|---------2- x 2      

           F C C


F C           F C                    Am
  Know a man... His  face pulled and tense...
          F C                             G/F  Asus2 Am 
Like he's riding on a motorbike... in the strongest  winds
       F           C                    F           C
So I approach with tact... suggest that he should relax
    F           C      G/F      F
But he's always moving much too fast
                             Am Asus2 Am                          Asus2 Am  
Said he'll see me on the flipside...      of this trip he's taken for a ride

          F C       F        C     F      C
He's been takin'... too much on... off he goes
            F   C  G/F Asus2 Am         F        C
with his perfectly un--kept  clothes... there he goes




F C Am

     F           C     F C
He's yet to come back... but I see his picture
F C                F    C         Am         F      C
  Doesn't look the same up on the rack... we go way back
F                    Am Asus2  Am                                Asus2   Am
I wonder 'bout his insides... it's like his thoughts are too big for his size

          F C              F       C       F      C
He's been taken... Where?  I don't know... off he goes
            F   C  G/F Asus2 Am      F        C
with his perfectly un--kept  hope... there he goes

[repeat chorus riff]

          F      C              F     C
And now I rub my eyes... for he has returned
F C           F     C              G/F         Asus2 Am
  Seems my preconceptions are what should have been  burned
    F        C   
For he still smiles... and he's still smiling
F C                            F        C           G/F  Asus2 Am
  Nothing's changed but the surrounding bullshit... that has   grown

F            C    F         C
And now he's home and we're laughing
F              C      F       C               Am
Like we always did... my same old... same old friend
        F          C                F            C
Until a quarter to ten... I saw the strain creep in
F C                          F         C                G/F Asus2 Am
  He seemed distracted and I know just what is going to hap-pen   next
           F     C       F         C
Before his first step... he is off again
