Followed by: E A B B Verse 2:
E A F#m AOnce I was a carpenter, and man my hands were calloused
F#m B EI could swing a metal mallet sure and straight
E A F#m ABut I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry
F#m B Eand I left the timbers rotting where they lay
Chorus:
A Am Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me
E C#m Band when I move my direction I look up to the sky
A And when the black cloak drags upon the ground
Am E C#m BI'll be ready to surrender and remember we're all in this together
A AmIf I live the life I'm given
E - B - E - BI won't be scared to die
Verse 3:
E A F#m AI don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pulled me
F#m B Eand I followed till I finally lost my way
E A F#m ANow I spend my days in search of a woman we call purpose
F#m B Eand if I ever passed back through her town I'd stay
[Play Chorus here] Instead of playing E - B - E - B at the end of the chorus, play the transition riff. Verse 4:
E A F#m AMy life is but a coin pulled from an empty pocket
F#m B Edropped into a slot of dreams of sevens close behind
E A F#m AHope and fear go with it, and the moon and the sun go spinning
F#m B ELike the numbers and the fruits before our eyes
Bridge:
E E/F# E/G# A B ESome - times I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
E E/F# E/G# A B ESome - times I hit, sometimes it robs me blind
[Play Chorus here] End on E chord.
