[Intro]Dm7 C/C6 2x

[Verse 1]
N.C.           Dm7
A world become one of salads and sun
       C/C6
Only a fool would say that
              Dm7
A boy with a plan; a natural man
           C/C6
Wearin' a white Stetson hat
Am           F
Unhand that gun begone
Em7               Dm7
There's no one to fire upon
        Dm7                              Am
If he's holding it high, he's telling a lie

[Chorus]
               Dm7
I heard it was you
                 Am         Am/G   D7/F#
Talkin' 'bout a world where all is free
                 F
It just couldn't be
             C                   C6
And only a fool would say that

[Verse 2]
                Dm7
The man in the street, draggin' his feet
            C/C6
Don't wanna hear the bad news
             Dm7
Imagine your face there in his place
           C/C6
Standin' inside his brown shoes
Am          F
You do his nine to five,
Em7                 Dm7
Drag yourself home half-alive
    Dm7                                     Am
And there on the screen, a man with a dream

[Chorus]
               Dm7
I heard it was you
                 Am         Am/G   D7/F#
Talkin' 'bout a world where all is free
                 F
It just couldn't be
             C6                   C6/G
And only a fool would say that

[Bridge]
Bm      E7                Am    Am/G    Am/F   Am/E
Anybody on the street has murder in his eyes
       F   Em7  Am                 Dm7         Dm7/G            C/C6
You'll feel no pain, and you're younger than you realize
       Dm7
Only a fool would say that
       Am Am/G Am/F Am/E Dm7
Only a foooooooooooooooooool

[Guitar Solo] Dm7 Am7 Em7 Dm7 C6

               Dm7
I heard it was you
                Am          Am/G   D/F#
Talkin' 'bout a world where all is free
                 F
It just couldn't be
            C             C6
And only a fool would say that
        Dm7
Only a fool would say that
        F                    C6
Only a fool would say that

sounds spot on, except the chord after Dm7 is called CM7 (major seventh) not C/C6 (the notes in the chord are right just not the name).
