Tracy Chapman-Mountains O'Things

[Intro]
 Am                Dm                Am
|/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |/ / / / |

[Verse 1]
Am
The life I've always wanted I guess I'll never have 
        Dm
I'll be working for somebody else Until I'm in my grave
        F                              G            F            Am 
I'll be dreaming of a live of ease and mountains Oh mountains o' things 

[Verse 2]
Am
To have a big expensive car Drag my furs on the ground 
Dm
And have a maid that I can tell To bring me anything 
F
Everyone will look at me with envy and with greed 
G                                 F            G            Am   
I'll revel in their attention And mountains Oh mountains o' things 

[Verse 3]
Am
Sweet lazy life Champagne and caviar
Dm 
I hope you'll come and find me Cause you know who we are 
F
Those who deserve the best in life And know what money's worth 
G                                          F            G          Am 
And those whose sole misfortune Was having mountains o' nothing at birth 

[Hook]
        C       G                                       Am
Oh they tell me There's still time to save my soul They tell me 
  C             G                                   Am
Renounce all Renounce all those material things you gained by 
F                G             Am
Exploiting other human beings 

[Verse 4]
Am
Consume more than you need This is the dream 
Dm
Make you pauper Or make you queen 
F
I won't die lonely I'll have it all prearranged   
G                                       F             G            Am   
A grave that's deep and wide enough For me and all my mountains o' things 

[Hook]
        C       G                                       Am
Oh they tell me There's still time to save my soul They tell me 
  C             G                                   Am
Renounce all Renounce all those material things you gained by 
F                G             Am
Exploiting other human beings 

[Bridge]
G             F       Am
Mostly I feel lonely 
G                    F                 Am
Good good people are   Good people are only My stepping stones 
G                      F                      Am
It's gonna take all my mountains o' things To surround me 
G           F            G                   F                   Am 
Keep all my enemies away Keep my sadness and loneliness at bay 

[Verse 5]
Am
The life I've always wanted I guess I'll never have 
        Dm
I'll be working for somebody else Until I'm in my grave
        F                              G            F            Am 
I'll be dreaming of a live of ease and mountains Oh mountains o' things 

[Outro]
        F                   G                   Am 
I'll be dreaming dreaming...dreaming dreaming...dreaming 
I'll be dreaming dreaming...dreaming dreaming...dreaming 
I'll be dreaming dreaming...dreaming dreaming...dreaming
