***Capo 5th***
Verse 1
There's a [Dadd4]tall thin man standing in the [G5/D]shadows
When he [Dadd4]calls your name his voice is strong and [G5/D]clear
It's a [Dadd4]dark and smoky place, so you [G5/D]can't quite see his face
He [Dadd4]pulls you close and whispers in your [G5/D]ear
Verse 2
And he [D]tells you he was born into some [G]money
But it [D]didn't mean he had to sit aroun[G]d
And he [D]knows a thing or two about the [G]things that you should do
If [D]you don't want to take life lying [G]down
[D]First of all hang [Cadd9]out a lot with [Em]Hem[D/F#]ingwa[G]y
[C]Spend some time [D]fighting bulls in [Em]Spain
You should [D]go three rounds with [Cadd9]Archie Moore and [Em]Sug[D/F#]ar Ra[G]y
[C]So damn sca[D]ry you won't mind the [Cadd9]pain
Verse 3
Be [D]ringside at the Rumble in the [G]Jungle
Make [D]friends with Hunter S. and Jackie [G]O.
And when they [D]shoot poor Bobby down, you wrestle [G]Sirhan to the ground
[D]Love your friends and miss them when they [G]go
You should [D]write a book or [Cadd9]two and start a [Em]mag[D/F#]azine[G]
[C] Even if it [D]never makes a [Em]dime
You should [D]swing out by your [Cadd9]feet above the [Em]cir[D/F#]cus rin[G]g
At the [C]very least throw [D]parties all the [Cadd9]time
|G |G D/F#|
[Em]Time and tide will [Em/maj7]never care
[Em7]Not so far from [A7]here to there
|Cadd9 G/B|Am |Cadd9 G/B|Am|Cadd9 G/B|Am D/F#|G C/G G|
We just go
Verse 4
So en[D]joy yourself, do the things that [G]matter
Cause there [D]isn't time and space to do it [G]all
[D]Love the things you try, drink a [G]cocktail wear a tie
[D] Show a little grace if you should [G]fall
Don't [D]live another [Cadd9]day unless you [Em]make[D/F#] it c[G]ount
There's [C]someone else that [D]you're supposed to [Em]be
[D]Something deep in[Cadd9]side of you that [Em]stil[D/F#]l wants [G]out
And [C]shame on you if [D]you don't set it [Cadd9]free
|D Cadd9|Em F# G|C D |G C/G G|
