Love of the Common Man
Words and Music/Todd Rundgren

Okay I guess I'm going to have to fill up this artists folder all by
myself.Any way thanks for your thumbs up email.
This is one of TR's favorite live performance songs,because he plays it well
as a solo number on a 12 string Ovation.Although  the video shows that Todd's
playing all over the neck as well as 1st position chords,I think it sounds
better and is a bit easier(at least for me it is) if you keep the chords
Remember boys and girls just listen to the record and follow the changes.

1st verse

                 E   G#m7    C#m7      B        A  Asus           E
I've been burned --------------in my prime.     The simple

               G#m7          C#m7       B          A
things in life seem so hard to learn sometimes.And it

 Dmaj7       A        Emaj7   C#m7     B             A     F#m7
takes        so        long---catch it while you can. To late

      B              A/B/A
tomorow and everyone......

the world around too late tomorrow cause

A      G#m                                C#m
you. Won't you make a showing everybody knows what to

A       B                          E
do.Ooooooh.        Take a dive from your ivory tower and

            A/B/A                             A/B/A
fall on everyone /will catch you everyone.

In the bridge ("everyone is waiting...") the G#m should be an
Emaj7 each time it appears.
