Capo 1

Intro: C, C/G, Am, F

 CC/G
It's been years, he's been here

 AmF
and time just lingers and no one knows

 CC/G
He's got eyes, he's got ears

 AmF
He's got all of his fingers, and all of his toes

 FEm
His is a life of observation

 FEmAm
Maybe one day he'll get to translate this information

 FEm
For twenty years, he hasn't spoken a word

 FG
He's been silent since the accident occured

 CC/G
While so many people taken tongues for granted

 C/GF
Taking the truth, finding ways to slant it   

 FC
I know a man who'd know what to do    

 CC/G
And so many people go day in and day out

 C/GF
just dreaming of things they can bitch about   

 FC
I know a man who'd know what to do   

 CC/G
It's a dream, for him it's real  

 AmF
but it never goes away and never will

 CC/G
He's in touch with what he feels

 AmF
Oh but he just can't say, "Maybe it's better still"

 FEm
His is a life of endless frustration

 FEmAm
He's got his pride, he's not exempt from humiliation

 FEm
Can't lift a finger to stop what's wrong

 FG
He can't lift a leg to dance to a Beatles song

 CC/G
While so many people taking spines for granted

 C/GF
Slither and squirm, taking what they're handed   

 FC
I know a man who'd know what to do   

 CC/G
And so many people go day by day

 C/GF
Sitting on their hands, constantly complaining  

 FC
I know a man who'd know what to do    

(instrumental)

C, C/G, Am, F

 CC/G
And so many content to exist like sheep

 C/GF
Never scratching the surface of themselves too deep  

 FC
I know a man who'd know what to do   

 CC/G
And so many people like you and me

 C/GF
Never realizing what our lives could be   

 FC
I know a man who'd know what to do   


Am C C/G Em F G
