Verse 1: {With piano only, tempo rubato} (0:54-)

|C7   |                |Ab7      |     |
   The wine's all drunk    and so am I
|C7             |                |Ab7      |     |

    I guess they're waiting for the big  one.

[Verse 2] {Enters the band, play the intro} (1:44-)

 Wonder why I'm cold. How did I get this far?
 Had no money, had no car
 I pray the snow goes, be bad if it settles
 'Cos I follow my nose and the dried up rose petals

 Like the man says, 
 Sure hope Moses knows his roses
 Or we'll all be waiting for the big one.

Interlude 1: (2:31-)

|C    | (x 4 bars)

|F    |G    |Ab   |Bb   |C    |     ||

|Dm   |Eb   |F    |G    |Ab   |Bb   ||

[Verse 3] (3:03-)

 Once I was the credit to my credit card
 spent what I hadn't got, wasn't hard
 No trust in judgement no trust in money
 Someday I'll find myself like a bee finding honey, oh

 But in the meantime, ah
 I'm gonna have me some fun
 Waiting for the big one.

[Verse 4] (3:50-)

 One too many, where ego I go too
 Looking for the real thing
 It don't come from what I do
 No real communication moves out of my face
 I'm beginning to think, yeah, I'm just out of place, a-ha

 Won't get in too deep, 
 I want to get some sleep
 To be ready for the big one, 

 To be ready for the big one
