[Bm]Life is whittled life's a riddle
Man's a [D]fiddle that life [F#7]plays on
When the [Bm]day breaks and the earth quakes
Life's a [D]mystery all day [F#7]long
You tell me [Bm]who gives a [Em]good God damn
You'll [Bm]never get out a[F#7]live
Don't go [Bm]dreaming don't go sche[Em]ming
A [Bm]man must test his [Em]metal in a [F#7]crooked old world[Bm]
[Bm]Starvin' in the belly, starvin' in the belly
Starvin' in the belly of a [Em]whale
Oh you're [Bm]starvin' in the belly, starvin in the belly
Starvin' in the [F#7]belly of a [Bm]whale
