[Intro]

E

[Verse]

N.C. ( E )
A modern-day warrior
N.C. ( E )
Mean mean stride,
N.C. ( E )
Today's Tom Sawyer
N.C. ( E )
Mean mean pride.

[Bridge]

E D/E A/E C/E

[Verse]

E
  Though his mind is not for rent,
D/E
  Don't put him down as arrogant.
A/E
  His reserve, a quiet defense,
C/E
  Riding out the day's events.
C G/B Am7 C   G/B Am7
          The river

[Bridge]

Em D/F# G A5 Em Cmaj7 B5 A5 G5 F#5
Em D/F# G A5 Em Cmaj7 B5 A5 G5 F#5

[Chorus]

    Em       D/F#          G     A5
And what you say about his company
   Em         Cmaj7   B5    A5 G5 F#5
Is what you say about society.
Em         D/F# G         A5
Catch the mist, catch the myth
Em          Cmaj7  B5        A5 G5 F#5
Catch the mystery, catch the drift.

[Bridge]

Em D/F# G A5 Em Cmaj7 B5 A5 B

[C-Part]

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.

[Verse]

N.C. ( E )
Today's Tom Sawyer,
N.C. ( E )
He gets high on you,
N.C. ( E )
And the space he invades
N.C. ( E )
He gets by on you.

[Bridge]

E D/E A/E C/E

[Verse]

E   
  No, his mind is not for rent
D/E
  To any god or government.
A/E
  Always hopeful, yet discontent,
C/E
  He knows changes aren't permanent,
C G/B Am7 C   G/B Am7
          But change is.

[Bridge]

Em D/F# G A5 Em Cmaj7 B5 A5 G5 F#5
Em D/F# G A5 Em Cmaj7 B5 A5 G5 F#5

[Chorus]

    Em       D/F#          G     A5
And what you say about his company
   Em         Cmaj7   B5    A5 G5 F#5
Is what you say about society.
Em        D/F#     G         A5
Catch the witness, catch the wit,
Em          Cmaj7 B5          A5 G5 F#5
Catch the spirit, catch the spit.

[Bridge]

Em D/F# G A5 Em Cmaj7 B5 A5 B

[C-Part]

B                 
  The world is, the world is,
A        G          B
Love and life are deep,
A            G     A   E
Maybe as his skies are wide.

[Verse]

N.C. ( E )
Exit the warrior,
N.C. ( E )
Today's Tom Sawyer,
N.C. ( E )
He gets high on you,
N.C. ( E )
And the energy you trade,
N.C. ( E )
He gets right on to the friction of the day.
