On Being Frank  Ben Folds Five

INTRO:
[Gmaj9] [C/D]  
[Gmaj9] [C/D]  
VERSE:
I [G]had it all,[D/G] or [Am/G]should I say I saw it all?
And it's a [Em]long way from the du[Bm]stbin of New [Em]Jersey to the [Bm]top
Who would have [Am]known?[Fmaj7]
Who would have [Dsus4]known[D]
I [G]had a dream,[D/G] but [Am/G]dreams had other plans for me
For 30 [Em]years I set the [Bm]thermostat
Where [Em]Frank Sinatra [Bm]liked it,
Pulled his [Am]girls and hung his [Em]hats
I never [Am]knew which ones were [Em]mine
Now he's [Bm]gone, and I'm [D]alone[D7]
CHORUS:
And I [G]don't know where I might be going
I [Bm]heard the wind, the wind stopped blowing
[Am]Set me on the roadside coming home
But [D]home, for [Em]me was always [C]someone else you [D]know
That [Em]shadows always [C]fall, when the [D]sun goes down
[Gmaj9] [C/D]  
[Gmaj9] [C/D]  
VERSE:
I [G]shook the hands,[D/G] [Am/G]mafia dons and presidents
And though they [Em]always smile po[Bm]litely
With a [Em]measure of [Bm]decorum
Still their [Am]eyes would scan be[Em]yond me
For a [Am]glimpse of something [Em]more
But now he's [Bm]gone,
Now they're [D]gone[D7]
CHORUS:
And I [G]don't know where I might be going
I [Bm]heard the wind, the wind stopped blowing
[Am]Set me on the roadside coming home
But [D]home, for [Em]me was always [C]someone else you [D]know
That [Em]shadows always [C]fall, when the [D]sun goes down
[Gmaj9] [C/D]  
[Gmaj9] [C/D]

BRIDGE:
[D]Alone, the [Em]shadow of a [C]star, don't you [D]know
That [Em]shadows always [C]fall, yeah [D]shadows always fall,
When the sun goes down
CHORUS:
And I [G]don't know where I might be going
I [Bm]heard the wind, the wind stopped blowing
[Am]Set me on the roadside coming home
And [D]home, for [Em]me was always [C]someone else you [D]know
