Written By: Neil peart
Intro: E  

 
    E  
A modern-day warrior  
Mean mean stride,  
Today's Tom Sawyer 
           E E  E D  E A  E C  
Mean mean pride.  
E E  
      Though his mind is not for rent,  
E D  
      Don't put him down as arrogant.  
E A  
      His reserve, a quiet defense,  
E C                            C G A  
      Riding out the day's events.  
C    G A    E E  E D  E A   C B A G F# E  
The ri_ver  
E F# G A E C B A  
  E             F#            G        A  
And what you say about his company  
    E        C           B  A  
Is what you say about society.  
E        F#    G            A  
Catch the mist, catch the myth  
E         C           B        A       E F# G A E C B A B  
Catch the mystery, catch the drift.  
   B  
The world is, the world is,  
A        G         B  
Love and life are deep,  
A             G     A   E  
Maybe as his eyes are wide.  
E  
Today's Tom Sawyer,  
He gets high on you,  
And the space he invades  
He gets by on you.  
(Solo) E  
E E   E D   E A   E C  
E E  
      No, his mind is not for rent  
E D  
      To any god or government.  
E A  
      Always hopeful, yet discontent,  
E C                                                        C G A  
     He knows changes aren't permanent,  
C    G      A     E E   E D   E A   C B A G F# E  
But change is.  
E F# G A E C B A  
  E             F#             G        A  
And what you say about his company  
    E       C                B  A  
Is what you say about society.  
E        F#         G            A  
Catch the witness, catch the wit  
E        C     B             A      E F# G A E C B A B  
Catch the spirit, catch the spit.  
     B  
The world is, the world is,  
A        G         B  
Love and life are deep,  
A             G     A   E  
Maybe as his eyes are wide.  
E  
Exit the warrior,  
Today's Tom Sawyer,  
He gets high on you,  
And the energy you trade,  
He gets right on to the friction of the day.  
E F# E F# E F# E F# E F# E F# E F# E F# E F#...
