Capo 1
Intro: C, C/G, Am, F
It's been y[C]ears, he's been [C/G]here
and time just [Am]lingers and no one k[F]nows
He's got e[C]yes, he's got [C/G]ears
He's got all of his[Am] fingers, and all of his [F]toes
H[F]is is a life of o[Em]bservation
M[F]aybe one day he'll get to tr[Em]anslate this informa[Am]tion
F[F]or twenty years, he hasn't s[Em]poken a word
H[F]e's been silent since the a[G]ccident occured
W[C]hile so many people taken tongues for g[C/G]ranted
T[C/G]aking the truth, finding ways to slant it[F]
I[F] know a man who'd know what to do[C]
A[C]nd so many people go day in and da[C/G]y out
( Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jeffrey_gaines/i_know_a_man_crd.html )
j[C/G]ust dreaming of things they can bitch about[F]
I[F] know a man who'd know what to do[C]
I[C]t's a dream, for him it's real[C/G]
but it never[Am] goes away and never [F]will
H[C]e's in touch with what he[C/G] feels
Oh but he just [Am]can't say, "Maybe it's better s[F]till"
H[F]is is a life of e[Em]ndless frustration
H[F]e's got his pride, he's not e[Em]xempt from humili[Am]ation
C[F]an't lift a finger to s[Em]top what's wrong
H[F]e can't lift a leg to [G]dance to a Beatles song
W[C]hile so many people taking spines for [C/G]granted
S[C/G]lither and squirm, taking what they're handed[F]
I[F] know a man who'd know what to do[C]
A[C]nd so many people go day by [C/G]day
S[C/G]itting on their hands, constantly complaining[F]
I[F] know a man who'd know what to do[C]
(instrumental)
C, C/G, Am, F
A[C]nd so many content to exist like [C/G]sheep
N[C/G]ever scratching the surface of themselves too deep[F]
I[F] know a man who'd know what to do[C]
A[C]nd so many people like you and [C/G]me
N[C/G]ever realizing what our lives could be[F]
I[F] know a man who'd know what to do[C]
