Cmaj7/A 
He was a light star
Bm7 
Tripping on a high wire
Abmaj7 
Bulldog stubborn,  
Ebmaj7 
born 
 
uneven
Eaug/B 
A classless creature,  
Bm-5+6/F 
a man for all seasons
 
Cmaj7/A 
But don’t bet them
 
They can’t
Bm7 
take him to the very bottom
 
Because  
Abmaj7 
they made him  
Ebmaj7 
and they’ll waste him
Eaug/B 
And I don’t believe  
Bm-5+6/F 
that I want to watch them

Cmaj7/A 
He was tight-assed
Dmaj7/B 
Walking on broken glass
Abmaj7 
Highly prized i
Ebmaj7 
n the wallet size
Eaug/B 
The number one crush in a sch

nd
In the depth of your despair
Abmaj7 
You went from lame suits  
Ebmaj7 
right down to tennis shoes
Eaug/B 
To peanuts
