to match the recording, capo the 1st fret (play all the
notes one fret higher).

RIFF
it looks complicated, but it's not.  anchor your index finger
on "9" and your ring finger on "10."  use your pinky for the
"11s" and your middle finger for notes on the E string.

VERSE
Head underwater
Keeps getting harder
Give 'em your medicine
Fame injection

CHORUS
Tell him to jump higher
Tell him to run farther
Make him measure up
                   RIFF 2
Decades longer than you

VERSE
Piece it together
It's like weather
Watch him travel
Kiss the gravel

CHORUS
Tell him to jump higher
Tell him to run farther
Make him measure up
                     RIFF 3
Ten times longer than you ever should
You never could explain them to me
Explain them to me
