Tom Sawyer  Rush

[Intro] 
[E]  
[Verse] 
N.C. (E)
A modern-day warrior
N.C. (E)
Mean mean stride,
N.C. (E)
Today's Tom Sawyer
N.C. (E)
Mean mean pride.
[Bridge] 
[E] [D/E] [A/E] [C/E]  
[Verse] 
[E] Though his mind is not for rent,
[D/E] Don't put him down as arrogant.
[A/E] His reserve, a quiet defense,
[C/E] Riding out the day's events.
[C] [G/B] [Am7] [C]The [G/B]rive[Am7]r

[Em] [D/F#] [G] [A5] [Em] [Cmaj7] [B5] [A5] [G5] [F#5]  
[Cborus] 
And [Em]what you [D/F#]say about his [G]compan[A5]y
Is [Em]what you sa[Cmaj7]y about [B5]societ[A5]y.[G5] [F#5]
[Em]Catch the m[D/F#]ist, [G]catch the [A5]myth
[Em]Catch the my[Cmaj7]stery, [B5]catch the [A5]dri[G5]ft.[F#5]
[Bridge] 
[Em] [D/F#] [G] [A5] [Em] [Cmaj7] [B5] [A5] [B]  
[C-Part] 
[B] The world is, the world is,
[A]Love and [G]life are [B]deep,
[A]Maybe as his [G]eyes [A]are [E]wide.
[Verse] 
N.C. (E)
Today's Tom Sawyer,
N.C. (E)
He gets high on you,
N.C. (E)
And the space he invades
N.C. (E)
He gets by on you.

[E] [D/E] [A/E] [C/E]  
[Verse] 
[E] No, his mind is not for rent
[D/E] To any god or government.

[A]Maybe as his [G]skies [A]are [E]wide.
[Verse] 
N.C. (E)
Exit the warrior,
N.C. (E)
Today's Tom Sawyer,
N.C. (E)
He gets high on you,
N.C. (E)

N.C. (E)
He gets right on to the friction of the day.
