Capo 1


Intro: C, C/G, Am, F


It's been y[C]ears, he's been [C/G]here

and time just [Am]lingers and no one k[F]nows

He's got e[C]yes, he's got [C/G]ears

He's got all of his[Am] fingers, and all of his [F]toes

H[F]is is a life of o[Em]bservation

M[F]aybe one day he'll get to tr[Em]anslate this informa[Am]tion

F[F]or twenty years, he hasn't s[Em]poken a word

H[F]e's been silent since the a[G]ccident occured

W[C]hile so many people taken tongues for g[C/G]ranted

T[C/G]aking the truth, finding ways to slant it  [F]

I[F] know a man who'd know what to do   [C]

A[C]nd so many people go day in and da[C/G]y out

j[C/G]ust dreaming of things they can bitch about  [F]

I[F] know a man who'd know what to do  [C]

I[C]t's a dream, for him it's real [C/G]

but it never[Am] goes away and never [F]will

H[C]e's in touch with what he[C/G] feels

Oh but he just [Am]can't say, "Maybe it's better s[F]till"

H[F]is is a life of e[Em]ndless frustration

H[F]e's got his pride, he's not e[Em]xempt from humili[Am]ation

C[F]an't lift a finger to s[Em]top what's wrong

H[F]e can't lift a leg to [G]dance to a Beatles song

W[C]hile so many people taking spines for [C/G]granted

S[C/G]lither and squirm, taking what they're handed  [F]

I[F] know a man who'd know what to do  [C]

A[C]nd so many people go day by [C/G]day

S[C/G]itting on their hands, constantly complaining [F]

I[F] know a man who'd know what to do   [C]

(instrumental)

C, C/G, Am, F

A[C]nd so many content to exist like [C/G]sheep

N[C/G]ever scratching the surface of themselves too deep [F]

I[F] know a man who'd know what to do  [C]

A[C]nd so many people like you and [C/G]me

N[C/G]ever realizing what our lives could be  [F]

I[F] know a man who'd know what to do  [C]
