D               Bm                         D
All work no play may have made Jack a dull boy
                Bm                            D      
But all work no God has left Jack with a lost soul
But he's moving on full steam
Bm                               D
He's chasing the American dream
And he's gonna give his family finer things


verse 1
D             Bm                           D
Not this time son I've no time to waste
          Bm                             D
Maybe Tomorrow we'll have time to play 
                       Bm             D
And then he slips into his new BMW
                          Bm                       E
And drives farther and farther and farther away

Pre-chorus 1
E                     G                          D
'Cause  he works all day and tries to sleep at night 
E                             G                D
He says things will get better; better in time

D                  Gm                   Bm          
'Cause he works and he builds with his own two hands
D            Gm               Bm                  
And he pours all he has in a castle made with sand 
D             Gm             Bm             
But the wind and the rain are comin' crashing in 
D             Gm                          D      D Bm Gm
Time will tell just how long his kingdom stands
               D Bm Gm
His kingdom stands

Verse 2
D                   Bm
His American dream is begining to seem 
D                             Bm
More and More like a nightmare
with every passing day
"Daddy, can you come to my game?" 
"Oh Baby, please don't work late."
Another wasted weekend
And they are slipping away
Pre-Chorus 2
E                     G                          D
'Cause he works all day and lies awake at night 
E                             G                
He tells them  things will get better
It'll just take a little more time


Verse 3
D                              Bm          
He used to say, "Who ever died with the most toys wins."
D                         Bm
But if he loses his soul, what has he gained in the end
I'll take a shack on a rock 
Bm                        E
Over a castle in the sand

Pre-chorus 3
E                     G                          D
Now he works all day and cries alone at night 
E                             G                
It's not getting any better 

Looks like he's running out of time
