The Ascent Of Stan

Ben Folds Five

------------------------.............


 GD
  Pangs, 
Of silence,
 EmD
  From the room upstairs.
 CG
  Hows the view there?
 G
  Do you read what they're,
 D
  Saying about you?

Verse 2:

 GD
  That youre no fun,
 EmD
  Since the war was won.
 CG
  In fact, you have become,
 GD
  All of the things you've always...
 AmC
  Run away from.

Chorus 1:

 Em
The ascent of Stan,
 B7/EbDA7
  Textbook hippie man.  
 EmB7/EbDA7
     Get rest while you can. 

Verse 3:

 GD
  So where'd the years go?
 EmD
  All the time we had?
 CG
  Being poor was,
 GD
  Not such a drag in hindsight.
 GD
  And you wonder,
 EmD
  Why your father,
 CG
Was so re-signed.
 GDAmC
  Now you dont wonder, any-more.  

Chorus 2:

 Em
The ascent of Stan,

  Textbook hippie man.

  Get rest while you can.
