Ben Folds - Fred Jones Part 2 chords

3/4 time, smoothly played.

C Am7 Em GFred sits alone at his desk in the dark
C Am7 Em GThere's an awkward young shadow that waits in the hall
Am7 F Am7 FHe has cleared all his things and he's put them in boxes
C GThings that remind him: 'Life has been good'
Am7 F Twenty-five years he's worked at the paper
C G Gsus4 GA man's here to take him downstairs
C F G CAnd I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time
C Am7 Em GThere was no party, there were no songs
C Am7 Em G'Cause today's just a day like the day that he started
Am7 F Am7 FNo one is left here that knows his first nAm7e
C GAnd life barrels on like a runaway train
Am7 FWhere the passengers change they don't change anything
C G Gsus4 GYou get off; someone else can get on
C F G CAnd I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time
Am7 EmStreetlight shines through the shades
F C G/BCasting lines on the floor and lines on his face
F CHe reflects on the day
Am7 Em Am7 Em F Em Am7 Em F Em G D Dsus4 D
C Am7 Em GFred gets his paints out and goes to the basement
C Am7 Em GProjecting some slides onto a plain white
Am7 F Am7 FCanvas and traces it, fills in the spaces
C GHe turns off the slides, and it doesn't look right
Am7 FYeah, and all of these bastards have taken his place
C G Gsus4 GHe's forgotten but not yet gone
C FAnd I'm sorry, Mr Jones
C FAnd I'm sorry, Mr Jones
C F G CAnd I'm sorry, Mr Jones it's time
__________________________________________________________________ I've put the chords all the way through 'cos it bugs me when you only get them for the first verse and have to keep checking back. I've also added the chords for the piano solo in the middle for those who want them - these haven't been included on any of the previous submissions. Enjoy!
