Nest Egg  The Phoenix Foundation

Beautiful song, but the guitar part is really easy.
Simply D, F#m, G, D repeated throughout the song.
[D]Our nest egg may be rotten
[F#m]And all our dreams forgotten
[G]But I am not down-trodden
[D]I'm a floatin'
[D]And you might say I'm a driftin'
[F#m]Just a sifter out siftin'
[G]But the point is listenin'
[D]On the way
( Tab from: )
[D]And now my bow is a listin'
[F#m]There’s no oil in my piston
[G]And the shot I fire is missin'
[D]The mark
(Bridge) same D, F#, G, D pattern
[D]It's a lie
[F#m]It's a lie
[G]It's a lie that you gotta be the big man
[D]The big man in this world
[D]It's a lie
[F#m]Oh it's a lie
[G]It's a lie that you gotta be the big man
[D]The big man in this world
[D]And now our nest egg's rotten
[F#m]But our love is not forgotten
[G]And I am not a down-trodden
[D]I'm a floatin'
