[Verse 1]
Am9 E7(#9#5) E7(b9)Downstairs they're playing Kenton
Am9 E7 Am9The house set to swing
Am9 E7#9#5I lay in my bed
E7b9 Am9 E7And listen to everything
Am9 E7(b9#5)Cause Leo's in rare form tonight
Am9 E7(b9#5)His trombone sings so sweet
Am9 E7(#9#5)This is the room
E7(b9) Am9Where they all come to meet
[Chorus]
A7And he said:
Dm7 A/C# C6I do what I can
G/BI live for the moment
G/B Bb9(b5) E7(#5)And that's who I am
E7(#5) Am9 A13(b9) A7(#5) A7Yeah that's who I am
Dm7 A/C# C6And isn't it good
G/BIf we could freeze moments in time
G/B Bb9(b5) E7We all would
Am9I do what I can
Am9I do what I can
[Verse 2]
Am9 E7(#9#5) E7(b9)Downstairs he's playing Kenton
Am9 E7The Magnavox sighs
Am9 E7(#9#5) E7(b9)But oh how the music has changed
Am9 E7In all of our lives

[Instrumental] Dm7 Asus Am E7 Asus4sus2 Am [Bridge]
Dm7 Asus AmIs this the end of the modern world?
E7 Asus4sus2 AmWhat could it mean for a young girl
Dm Asus AmWho sees the pain on his face?
E7 Asus4sus2 AmHe does what he can
Dm Asus AmThe procession on the T.V. screen
E7 Asus4sus2 AmWhat could it possibly mean
Dm AsusFor a man who's come this far
Am E7 Asus4sus2 AmJust to turn around
Fmaj7 Asus AmCould there still be life in Kenton's swing
E7 Asus4sus2 AmWith the Kennedys gone and everything
Fmaj9 Dm/A Em7 C/GThose sad rows of houses with their optimistic colors
Dm9 F6 Cmaj9Democrat grandparents and draft-dodging brothers
Bb9 E7susRiots down the street and discontented mothers
E7 Am E5 Am9We do what we can
[Verse 3]
Am9 E7(#9#5)Downstairs it's quiet
Am9 E7(#9#5)Less alive somehow
Am9 E7(#9#5) E7(b9) Am9Somehow he was everything that I am now
[Chorus]

Dm7 A/C# C6And its good to be alive

AmWe do what we can
