This tab is NOT 100% perfect, but it sounds close and follows well if you're playing
the track.  It's a simpilfied version, because I don't feel like figuring out the G
and so on...anyways, here it is:

There was a man back in '95
 G        G?      Gsus
Whose heart ran out of summers
         G         Em(7)
But before he died, I asked him

Wait, what's the sense in life
     C             D
Come over me, Come over me

He said,
   G         G?         Gsus
Son why you got to sing that tune

      G        G?            Gsus            G
Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon
Let an angel swing and make you swoon
        C                  D
Then you will see... You will see

Then he said,
  C              D
Here's a riddle for you

Find the Answer
    C                  D
There's a reason for the world
   G (and resumes from above)
You and I...

(repeats pattern throughout song)

Picked up my kid from school today

Did you learn anything cause in the world today
You can't live in a castle far away
Now talk to me, come talk to me

He said,

Dad I'm big but we're smaller than small
In the scheme of things, well we're nothing at all
Still every mother's child sings a lonely song
So play with me, come play with me

And Hey Dad
Here's a riddle for you
Find the Answer
There's a reason for the world
You and I...

I said,

Son for all I've told you
When you get right down to the
Reason for the world...
Who am I?

(you can do a step down pattern here - G, G/F, G/B,
and back into the Em7; there's a chord I'm missing here in the middle - sorry, but then
resumes the normal pattern).

There are secrets that we still have left to find
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time
There are answers we're not wise enough to see

He said... You looking for a clue I Love You free...

The batter swings and the summer flies
As I look into my angel's eyes
A song plays on while the moon is hiding over me
Something comes over me

I guess we're big and I guess we're small
If you think about it man you know we got it all
Cause we're all we got on this bouncing ball
And I love you free
I love you freely

Here's a riddle for you
Find the Answer
There's a reason for the world
You and I...
