Riff 1



Am C G F x2
[Am]The man of the mome[C]nt is [G]just [F]way ahead of his time,
[Am]could be why you see ju[C]st dis[G]tance in [F]his eyes
Riff 1 F C
he could be watching ashes grow,
Riff 1 F C G
where all your best seeds were just now sown
[Dsus2]but for all I know th[Am]ere's far more I [F]don't[Am]
[Am]New rays of light must figh[C]t for a [G]place betw[F]een the leaves
[Am]so son don't seem surprised[C] to find n[G]o shade b[F]eneath this tree
Riff 1 F C
just like Abe you can't think twice
Riff 1 F C G
when offered your piece of the franchise
[Dsus2]now every kid exp[Am]ects a bir[F]thright
[F]Hand-me-down, hand-me-down oh [G]brother,
[Am]now it's your turn, it's your [G]turn to deliver
[F]hand-me-down, hand-me-down oh [G]brother,
[Dsus2]what's the measure of [Am]a man, made [F]to measure
[Am]It's some privilege to claim that o[C]nly the s[G]trong su[F]rvive -
[Am]if you can choose the time and pla[C]ce and wha[G]t you'll[F] sacrifice
Riff 1 F C
we'll all get our piece of the dream
Riff 1 F C G
and the have-nots will have to take another hit for the team
[Dsus2]well that's just how [Am]it's always been
[Am]It went something like - garden, tree, Adam and Eve, a[C]nd Father,[G] pray,
[Am]But if I never hear that shit again I'll [C]live and l[G]ive and l[F]ive
Riff 1 F C
and whatever made the world go round before
Riff 1 F C G
is probably what will keep it going round after they're gone
[Dsus2]but for all I know t[Am]here's much more I[F] don't
[F]Hand-me-down, hand-me-down o[G]h brother,
[Am]now it's your turn, it's you[G]r turn to deliver
[F]hand-me-down, hand-me-down [G]oh brother,
[Dsus2]what's the measure of a man[Am], made to measure
[F]made to measure
[Am] [C] [G] [F]  
repeat a few times then finish on Am
