Company of Fools  Great Big Sea

"Company Of Fools"(Doyle/Russell Crowe)
From "Fortune's Favour"(2008)
[G]Bring on the C[D]lowns
The [G]Jokers and Buff[D]oons
I?ve had the [G]Time of my Life
And the [D]Life of my Time
In the [A]Company of Fo[D]ols
[D]Many a truest word
has been [G]spoken by the [D]Jester
[G]Standing against the [D]tide
Is the n[A]oblest of gestures
[D]little pearls of wisdom
That [G]tumble from the [Bm]light
Can make us [G]laugh until we c[D]ry
Because we [A]know that they are [D]right
Wit[A]hin the strangest people
Truth can [D]find the strangest home
So [E]meet me in the village
Where [A]all we idiots go (go!)
CHORUS, followed by:
[D]Na na [G]natineutinee, [Bm]na na [G]natineutinee
[D]na na [G]natineutinee, [Bm]natineu[A]tnee [D]na (ho!)
I?m wading through the quicksand
In the gardens of the gentry
Blooming vacuity
Leaves mind and pockets empty
Now,In the Social Order
I accept the bottom rung
until the wine is pouring
And the Lord commands a song
So,Meet me at the staff door
When the posers all go home
We?ll gather with the other Fools
And put on a proper show (show!)
CHORUS X2, "na na...", then Bridge:
So [A]here?s to the Poorest Poet
Who [D]always pens the truth
an' the [G]Players Writers,[D]Gypsies an'
The [A]Minstrels and their [D]tunes
I?d rather [A]live an honest lifetime
With [D]those with nothing to lose
Than [G]waste a [D]night
Knee [G]deep in [D]shite
That?s [G]polished [D]slick
To [G]look just [D]right
[D]I?d rather live a lif[A]etime
In the [A]Company of [D]Fools
BREAK: |D G\f#|G A|X4
Within the strangest people
Truth can find the strangest home
So meet me in the village
where all we idiots go
(all we idiots,all we idiots go)
CHORUS (Acapella)
"Na Na..."
Break Chords (double time)
to fade, with ad lib.
