[Verse 1]
G                   C        G
I cannot say that I know you well
        C            G                  Em
But you can't lie to me with all these books that you sell
        C         Em                G          C
I'm not trying to follow you to the end of the world
         G               C         G
I'm just trying to leave something behind

[Verse 2]
G                    C       G
Words have come from men and mouse
            C           G           Em
But I can't help thinking that I've heard the wrong crowd
      C      Em               G           C
When all the water is gone my job will be too
        G               C           G
And I'm trying to leave something behind

[Chorus]
   C        Em                  G             C
Oh money is free but love costs more than our bread
        C          G       D
And the ceiling is hard to reach
        C     Em        G         C        
Oh the future ahead is broken and red
        G               C           G
But I'm trying to leave something behind

[Verse 3]
G                     C       G
This whole world is a foreign land
   C            G                            Em
We swallow the moon but we don't know our own hand
      C                 Em              G       C
We're running with the case but we ain't got the gold
          G               C           G
Yet we're trying to leave something behind

[Verse 4]
G                           C            G
My friends I believe we are at the wrong fight
      C      G                   Em
And I cannot read what I did not write
     C           Em             G         C
I've been to His house, but the master is gone
        G               C         G
But I'd like to leave something behind

[Chorus]
G                        C        G
There is a beast who has taken my brain
        C         G                         Em
You can put me to bed but you can't feel my pain
        C            Em         G             C
When the machine has taken the soul from the man
     G                C         G
It's time to leave something behind

[Verse 5]
   C        Em                  G             C
Oh money is free but love costs more than our bread
        C          G       D
And the ceiling is hard to reach
        C       Em      G       C
Oh the future ahead is already dead
        G               C          G
So I'm trying to leave something behind

[Chorus]
G                           C            G
I got this feeling that I'm still at the shore
        C         G                        Em
And pockets don't know what it means to be poor
        C             Em          G         C
I can get through the wall if you give me a door
   G               C       G
So I can leave something behind

[Chorus]
G                        C      G
Oh wisdom is lost in the trees somewhere
        C           G                               Em
You're not going to find it in some mental gray hair
        C           Em          G       C
It's locked up from those who hurry ahead
        G                 C        G
And it's time to leave something behind

[Verse 6]
   C        Em                  G               C
Oh money is free but love costs more than our bread
        C           G         D
And the ceiling is hard to reach
        C        Em             G          C
When my son is a man he will know what I meant
          G                     C       G
I was just trying to leave something behind
          G                     C       G
I was just trying to leave something behind

He also plays this with capo on 3 for those that want to sound like this version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6c5BMg78mh8. Same chord progression. Nice job.
