Intro - G G/F# C9 G/F# G  G/F# G

G G/F# C9 G/F#As he taxes a draw on the 15th floor
G G/F# GHe can't help cursing his luck
G G/F# C9 G/F#Life could have dealt him such a different hand
G G/F# GMaybe 2 across and 23 up
G G/F# C9 G/F#But there ain't door on the 38th floor
G G/F# DNo shortcut out of this dump
G G/F# C9 G/F#The nearer high rise comes closer to the skies
G G/F# GThe temptation to actually jump
GAnd it's sadder the leaving than left
C9Sadder the going than gone
Saddest of all is the person bereft
DOf the chance to jump off or walk on
GFalling from ladder, landing on dagger
G/F# C9A thousand and one ways to die
GBetter the brave and the early to grave
D GAnd damn those too frightned to try
As he awaits the last score on the 25th floor He looks down at the madness below It's always some Grimsby or Scunthorpe Some place he ain't been or won't go And as result comes in and his head goes down Yet another week he's gonna be stuck Where the betting slips rain like confetti Let down, thrown out or screwed up And it's sadder the leaving than left Sadder the going than gone Saddest of all is the person bereft Of the chance to jump off or walk on Falling from ladder, landing on dagger A thousand and one ways to die Better the brave and the early to grave And damn those too frightned to try
GSo we wish you good spaces in faraway places
C9Good luck in the folk that you meet
Cause if you don't travel, the dust and the gravel
DWill swallow you up from your feet
GThis song that we give, please carry it with
C9To remind you we long your return
GTravel thee far and travel thee well
D GAnd bring back every lesson you learn
