[Intro]
| A | Amaj7 | A7 | Dm/A | Dm/A G/A |
| A | Amaj7 | A7 | Dm/A | Dm/A G/A |


[Verse]
A                                Amaj7
  These are the days of the open hand
                     A7
They will not be the last ... look around now
      Dm/A                Dm/A    G/A    [ A ] 
These are the days of the beggars and the choosers


[Verse]
A                                Amaj7
  This is the year of the hungry man
                      A7
Whose place is in the past
                  Dm/A
Hand in hand with ignorance
       Dm/A  G/A [ Bm ]
And legitimate excuses


[Bridge]
Bm                             Bbaug
   The rich declare themselves poor
                       D/A
And most of us are not sure if we have too much
          E/G#                                       [ Bm ]
But we'll take our chances cause God's stopped keeping score
Bm                             Bbaug
   I guess somewhere along the way
                               D/A
He must have let us all out to play
                    E/G#                           [ A ]
Turned his back and all God's children crept out the back door


[Chorus]
A                       Amaj7
  And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
A7
  Hanging on to hope
Dm/A         Dm/A  G/A    [ A ]
  When there is no hope to speak of
A                        Amaj7
  And the wounded skies above 
                           A7
Say it's much too much too late
     Dm/A              Dm/A G/A        [ A ]
Well maybe we should all be praying for time


[Interlude]
| A | Amaj7 | A7 | Dm/A | Dm/A G/A |
| A | Amaj7 | A7 | Dm/A | Dm/A G/A |


[Verse]
A                                 Amaj7
  These are the days of the empty hand
                           A7
Oh you hold on to what you can
                 Dm/A          Dm/A    G/A
And charity is a coat you wear twice a year


[Verse]
A                                Amaj7
  This is the year of the guilty man
                        A7
Your television takes a stand
                  Dm/A              Dm/A G/A [ Bm ]
And you find that what was over there is over here


[Bridge]
Bm                                Bbaug
   So you scream from behind your door
                                D/A
Say what's mine is mine and not yours
                             E/G#
I may have too much but I'll take my chances 
      E/G#                 [ Bm ]
Cause God's stopped keeping score
Bm                                  Bbaug
   And you cling to the things they sold you
                                  D/A
Did you cover your eyes when they told you
        E/G#                                             [ A ]
That he can't come back because he has no children to come back for


[Chorus]
A                       Amaj7
  And it's hard to love, there's so much to hate
A7
  Hanging on to hope
Dm/A         Dm/A  G/A    [ A ]
  When there is no hope to speak of
A                        Amaj7
  And the wounded skies above 
                           A7
Say it's much too much too late
    Dm/A              Dm/A G/A        [ A ]
So  maybe we should all be praying for time


[Coda]
| A | Amaj7 | A7 | Dm/A | Dm/A G/A |
| A | Amaj7 | A7 | Dm/A | Dm/A G/A | A
