[Intro]

        Em           G        C   G
No you can't keep a good man down.
        Em            G              C                  D
You can hold him underwater, you may hope that he will drown.
        Em             G                C                   G
You can bury him with circumstance and cloud his head with doubt,
        Em            D        G   C G
but you can't keep a good man down.

[Verse 1] 
            Em G           C             G
"I'm sorry son," said the lawyer to the boy.
                     Em G           C                G
"Your folks weren't good at paying debts, or saving coins.
              Em                G              C             G
It seems that all your parents left you was uncertainty and void.
              Em   D               G     C  G
You've got a pulse, you've got a choice."

[Chorus]
        Em           G        C    G
No you can't keep a good man down.
        Em                   G               C                  D
You can flood his deck with water, sink his ship, hope that he drown
        Em             G                C                   G   
You can bury him with circumstance and cloud his head with doubt,
        Em            D        G     C G
but you can't keep a good man down.

[Verse 2]
              Em  G      C                G
The house is gone, repossessed on a Saturday.
             Em G          C            G 
And with it left all the childhood memories.
             Em               G                    C          G 
He drove his mother back and forth for years from work and to AA, 
    Em D          G    C  G 
irony   took her away.

[Chorus]
        Em           G        C   G
No you can't keep a good man down.
        Em                   G                 C               D
You can fill his lungs with water, you may be certain he will drown.
        Em             G                 C                  G   
You can bury him with circumstance and cloud his head with doubt, 
        Em            D        G     C G
but you can't keep a good man down.

[Verse 3]
            Em G     C           G
He got the call at 6:07 June the 8th
             Em G                    C              G 
and from the tone he'd known what'd happened right away.
                 Em           G               C               G 
"There's been an accident and I'm afraid neither of them are safe,
        Em D                 G    C  G 
the alcohol must share the blame."

[Chorus]
        Em           G        C    G
No you can't keep a good man down.
        Em                  G                  C                 D
You can deprive the air he breathes, hold him under, watch him drown.
        Em             G                 C                  G
You can bury him with circumstance and cloud his head with doubt,
        Em            D        G     C  G  C  G
but you can't keep a good man down.
