[Verse]
E B Cdim7 C#m What if you reached the age of reason
Amaj7 | Bsus4 Bsus4 B |Only to find there was no reprieve
E B Cdim7 C#mWould you still be a man for all seasons?
F# | Bsus2 B | Or would you just have to leave
AWe measure our days out
B Cdim C#mIn steps of un- certainty
E C#m BNot turning to see how we've come
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ]And peer down the highway
B Cdim C#m B/D#From here to e- ternity
E C#m | Bsus4 B |And reach out for love on the run
AWhile the man for all seasons
B [ E ]Is lost behind the sun

[Verse]
E B Cdim7 C#mHenry Plantagenet still looks for someone
Amaj7 | Bsus4 Bsus4 B | To bring good news in his hour of doubt
E B Cdim7 C#mWhile Thomas More waits in the Tower of London
F#9 | Bsus4 B |Watching the sands running out
AAnd measures the hours out
B Cdim C#mFrom here to ob- livion
E C#m | Bsus4 B |In actions that can't be undone
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ]A sailor through the darkness
B Cdim C#m B/D#He scans the meridian
E C#m/G# | Bsus4 B |And caught by the first rays of dawn
AThe man for all seasons
B [ E ]Is lost beneath the storm
(break) [Bridge] | E B | E B | E B | E |

E B Cdim7 C#mSo, what if you reached the age of reason
Amaj7 | Bsus4 Bsus4 B | Only to find there was no reprieve
E B Cdim7 C#mWould you still be a man for all seasons?
F#9 | Bsus4 B | Or would you just disbelieve?
AWe measure our gains out
B Cdim C#mIn luck and co- incidence
E C#m | Bsus4 B |Lanterns to turn back the night
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ]And put our defeats down
B Cdim C#m B/D#To chance or ex- perience
E C#m/G# | Bsus4 B |And try once again for the light
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#Some wait for the waters of fortune to cover them
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#Some just see the tides of ill chance running over them
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#Some call on Jehovah, some cry out to Allah
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#Some wait for the boats that still row to Val- hallah
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#Well, you should try to accept what the fates are un- folding
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#While some say they're sure where the blame should be falling
A [ A/G# A/F#m A/E ] B Cdim C#m B/D#You look round for maybe a chance of fore-stalling
E BBut too soon itโ€™s over and done
(break)
AAnd the man for all seasons
B [ E ]Is lost behind the sun
