Verse 1:

Em                                  D                             G
The old bastard left his ties and his suit

D              G       D                        G              C       D-Em
A brown box, mothballs and bowling shoes

Em                                    D                             G
and his opinion so you'd never have to choose

D              G       D                        G              C 
Pretty soon, you'll be an old bastard too

Am
You get smaller while the world gets big

C
The more you know you know you don't know shit

Am                                                                   C   
The whiz man'll never fit you like the whiz kid did

Chorus:

     G                         D                   Em                      D-C
So why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

Am                       C
It's okay if you don't know everything

     G                         D                   Em                      D-C
Why you gotta act like you know when you don't know?

Am                       C
It's okay if you don't know everything

Verse 2:

Em                                  D                             G
Close your eyes close your ears young man
D              G       D                        G              C       D-Em
You've seen and heard all an old man can
Em                                    D                             G
Spread the facts on the floor like a fan
D              G       D                        G              C 
throw away the ones that make you feel bad

Am
Kids today gettin' old too fast
C
they can't wait to grow up so they can get some ass
Am
They get nostalgic about the last ten years
C
before the last ten years have passed

[Chorus]

[Solo]

E                            D                   G
Tears land on a hand on the chest
D            G           D          G          C
The old bastard had a paradigm arrest

Am                                 
You got smaller and the world got big
C
The more you knew we knew we didn't know shit
Am                                                       C
The whiz man never fit him the whiz kid did

[Chorus]
