***Capo 5th***

Verse 1
          Dadd4                         G5/D
There's a tall thin man standing in the shadows
        Dadd4                                   G5/D
When he calls your name his voice is strong and clear
       Dadd4                        G5/D 
It's a dark and smoky place, so you can't quite see his face
   Dadd4                                G5/D
He pulls you close and whispers in your ear

Verse 2
       D                               G
And he tells you he was born into some money
       D                              G
But it didn't mean he had to sit around
       D                              G
And he knows a thing or two about the things that you should do
   D                                 G
If you don't want to take life lying down

D                 Cadd9          Em D/F# G
First of all hang out a lot with Hemingway
C               D                 Em
Spend some time fighting bulls in Spain
           D                    Cadd9            Em D/F# G
You should go three rounds with Archie Moore and Sugar Ray
C          D                     Cadd9  
So damn scary you won't mind the pain

Verse 3
   D                             G
Be ringside at the Rumble in the Jungle
     D                                 G
Make friends with Hunter S. and Jackie O.
              D                                  G
And when they shoot poor Bobby down, you wrestle Sirhan to the ground
D                                         G
Love your friends and miss them when they go

           D               Cadd9           Em D/F# G
You should write a book or two and start a magazine
C           D             Em
 Even if it never makes a dime
           D                 Cadd9          Em D/F#   G
You should swing out by your feet above the circus ring
       C                D               Cadd9
At the very least throw parties all the time

|G |G D/F#|

Em                 Em/maj7
Time and tide will never care
Em7             A7
Not so far from 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
     D                                G
So enjoy yourself, do the things that matter
            D                             G
Cause there isn't time and space to do it all
D                                G
Love the things you try, drink a cocktail wear a tie
D                                  G
 Show a little grace if you should fall

      D            Cadd9          Em  D/F# G
Don't live another day unless you make it count
        C                 D                  Em
There's someone else that you're supposed to be
D                Cadd9            Em  D/F#    G       
Something deep inside of you that still wants out
    C               D                Cadd9
And shame on you if you don't set it free


|D  Cadd9|Em F# G|C  D |G C/G G|
