Album version
[F]  
|:C . . . |F . . . :|
Most of the [C]time
I'm [F]clear focused all around
Most of the [C]time
I can keep [F]both feet on the ground
[Am] I can follow the path,[F] I can read the sign
[Am] Stay right with it [F] when the road unwinds
I can handle what[C]ever I stumble up[F]on
I don't even [Am]notice she's [F]gone
Most of the [C]time.
Most of the time it's well understood
Most of the time I wouldn't change it if I could
I can make it all match up
I can hold my own
I can deal with the situation right down to the bone
I can survive and I can endure
And I don't even think about her
Most of the time.
Most of the time my head is on straight
Most of the time I'm strong enough not to hate
I don't build up illusion 'til it makes me sick
I ain't afraid of confusion no matter how thick
I can smile in the face of mankind
Don't even remember what her lips felt like on mine
Most of the time.
[Am] Most of the time
[C] she ain't even in my mind
[Am] I wouldn't know her if I saw her
[C] She's that far behind
[E] Most of the time
[Am] I can't even be sure
[E] If she was ever with me
[Am] Or if I was ever with [F/G]her
Most of the time I'm halfway content
Most of the time I know exactly where it went
I don't cheat on myself I don't run and hide
Hide from the feelings that are buried inside
I don't compromise and I don't pretend
I don't even care if I ever see her again
Most of the time.
Tell Tale Signs version
The chord that I have written as /G changes through the song,
from a simple Am/G (3x2210) to a full C/G, played as 3x2013, which at one
point is played 3x203x, quickly changed to the correct form, which gives an
interesting variation …
Also worth noting is the slowing down of the harmonic rhythm in the
last verse, which brings the song closer to the album version in a way
which reminds of On A Rainy Afternoon from
Eat The Document.
G11 is played 3x3211.
 
 Intro, something like:
