Pearl Jam - Off He Goes            

Based on Pencom's version but I couldn't play to it at all so I adjusted the timing of chords/lyrics and 
added the instrumental bit in the middle :)

[VERSE]

F F C              F F C                      Am   
     Know a man...       His face pulled and tense...           

          F  C        F    C              F    C     Am  
Like he's riding on a motorbike... in the strongest winds        

     F     C       C       F   F   F    C 
So I approach with tact... suggest that he should relax     

    F           C      G/F      F 
But he's always moving much too fast  

                         Am  Asus2  Am
Said he'll see me on the flipside...    

(Repeat 1st intro riff with F chord here, | indicates to match the lyric to the note)

F  |    |    |    Am    Asus2  Am
of this trip he's taken for a ride 

[CHORUS]  

F  |    |    |   F   C     F        C     F        C 
He's    been     takin'... too much on... there he goes             

         F   C       F   C   Am 
with his per-fect-ly un-kept clothes... 

F        C
there he goes

[VERSE]

F           C    C          F F C           
He's yet to come back...        but I see his picture 

F F C               F  F  C            Am          
    It doesn't look the same up on the rack...
 
   F  C  C
we go way back 

  F  |    |    |   Am     Asus2 Am                                
I wonder 'bout his insides...
 
     F    |    |   |       Am   Asus2   Am 
it's like his thoughts are too big for his size            

[CHORUS]

F  | | |  F   C            F       C       F      C 
He's been taken... Where?  I don't know... off he goes    
         
         F   C       F   C   Am 
with his per-fect-ly un-kept hope... 

F        C
there he goes  


[REPEAT SAME INSTRUMENTAL]

[VERSE]

          F   C   C      F   F  C 
And now I rub my eyes... for he has returned 

F F C           F  F  C              F          C     Am
    Seems my preconceptions are what should-have  been  burned     

    F       C  C                        F  F  C
For he still smiles...         and he's still strong

F F C                 F   F   C                       F    C   Am   
    Nothing's changed but the surrounding bullshit... that has grown  

[CHORUS AND END VERSE]

    F          C       F         C 
And now he's home..    and we're laughing 

F       C           F         C      F    C   Am 
Like we always did... my same old... same old friend         

        F     C   C         F   F   C 
Until a quarter to ten... I saw the strain creep in 

F F C                    F   F   C                        F   C    Am   
    He seemed distracted and I know just what is going to hap-pen  next            

       F     C   C       F  F  C 
Before his first step... he is off again

F F C C

"I think it's close" but the great thing about this track is
the timing of the vocals. Listening is the best way to get it. Enjoy :)
