E (root a string) F#

the gentleman's in the lane

E C

spinning his hat on a cane

A C

stepping out, out for a change

D7 Em C

good morning all, it's a beautiful day

the general's are winning a war

seemed suicidal before

you come along, now

i'll protect you long as you stay

E F#

L A

C

morning had to come

D7

I'd be walking in the sun

G A

living in the day

C E

but last night i was about to throw it all away

REPEAT RIFF

if patience started a band

i'd be her biggest fan

look at me, i'm talking to you

i don't want the lead in your play

the star's just a part of the scene

the gentleman in green

paying off out on the street

i can't go home, it's not on my way

la

things i'd never done, cars parked in the sun

living in the day

but last night i was about to throw it all away

RIFF 2:

E|-0-0-2---0-2-3-5

last night i was about to throw it all away

REPEAT RIFF 2

last night i was about to throw it all away

REPEAT RIFF 2

last night i was about to throw it all

E

away______.
