     I'm on my way, I'm making it.
Gm  Gm/Bb        C/E     C7sus4/F   Gm  Gm/Bb  C/E  C7sus4/F
     I've got to make it show, yeah!
Gm  Gm/Bb  C/E     C7sus4/F    Gm   Gm/Bb  C/E  C7sus4/F
           So much larger than life.
Gm  Gm/Bb         C/E      C7sus4/F  Gm  Gm/Bb  C/E  C7sus4/F
     I'm going to watch it growing.

 Oh...

Verse 1:

C7/G                    C7sus4/G
 The place where I come from, is a small town.
Cm7/G                                Gm
 They think so small, they use small words.
        C7/G                      C7sus4/G
But not me; I'm smarter than that; I worked it out.
Cm7/G
 I've been stretching my mouth,
             Gm
To let those big words come right out.

           C7/G                           C7sus4/G
I've had e-nough, I'm getting out, to the city, the big, big city.
Cm7/G
 I'll be a big noise, with all the big boys,
        Gm
There's so much stuff I will own.

Bridge 1:

F#b5                          C7/E
 And I will pray to a big God, as I kneel in the big church.

 (Big Time),   oh yes.
Gm          Gm/Bb        C/E     C7sus4/F
 (Big Time), I've got to make it show, yeah!

Oh-oh oh, oh oh, oh-oh oh, oh oh.

Verse 2:

C7/G                     C7sus4/G
 My parties have all the big names,
                                 Cm7/G
And I greet them with the widest smile.
                                    Gm
Tell them how my life is one big ad-venture.
                     C7/G
And always they're a-mazed,
                           C7sus4/G
When I show them 'round my house, to my bed.
         Cm7/G
I had it made like a mountain range,
                  Gm
With a snow-white pillow for my big fat head.

Bridge 2:

F#b5
 And my Heaven will be a big Heaven,
C7/E
 And I will walk through the front door.

Chorus 3:

Gm          Gm/Bb      C/E      C7sus4/F

 (Big Time).
Gm          Gm/Bb        C/E     C7sus4/F   Gm  Gm/Bb, C7sus4
 (Big Time), I've got to make it show, yeah!

Gm          Gm/Bb C/E     C7sus4/F    Gm   Gm/Bb  C/E  C7sus4/F
 (Big Time),      so much larger than life.

Gm          Gm/Bb C/E            C7sus4/F
 (Big Time),   my car is getting bigger,
Gm          Gm/Bb C/E              C7sus4/F
 (Big Time),  my  house is getting bigger.
Gm          Gm/Bb C/E              C7sus4/F
 (Big Time), my   eyes are getting bigger,
Gm           Gm/Bb    Fsus4  F
 (Big Time)... and my mouth...

Gm          Gm/Bb C/E              C7sus4/F
 (Big Time),  my  belly is getting bigger,
Gm          Gm/Bb   C/E     C7sus4/F
 (Big Time), and my bank ac-count.
Gm          Gm/Bb    C/E        C7sus4/F
 (Big Time), look at my, circum-stance,
Gm          Gm/Bb    Fsus4
 (Big Time), and the bulge in my,
                              Gm
Big, big, big, big, big, big, big.
