Intro: Em, C

Em CAll you great men of power, you who boast of your feats
Em CPoliticians and entrepreneurs
Em CCan you safeguard your breath in the night while you sleep
Em CKeep your heart beating steady and sure
D Am6As you lie in your bed, does the thought haunt your head
Em A7That you’re really, rather small
C B11 EmIf there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
(Em) CAll you champions of science and rulers of men,
Em CCan you summon the sun from its sleep
Em CDoes the earth seek your counsel on how fast to spin
Em CCan you shut up the gates of the deep
D Am6Don’t you know that all things hang, as if by a string,
Em A7O’er the darkness, poised to fall?
C B11 EmIf there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
Em CAll you big shots that swagger and stride with conceit,
Em CDid you devise how your frame would be formed
Em CIf you’d be raised in a palace, or live out in the streets,
Em CDid you choose the place or the hour you’d be born
D Am6Tell me what can you claim? Not a thing, not your name
Em A7 C Tell me if you can recall just one thing,
B11That’s not a gift in this life
Am Can you hear what’s been said
B11 Em A7Can you see now that everything’s grace after all
C B11 EmIf there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
