Standard Tuning Capo 2
               / C                                         / 
Well, you / wonder why I always dress in / black.
              / C                                         / D 
Why you / never see bright colors on my / back, and
F              -            C                          / F          -        C
Why does my ap -  pearance, seem to / have a sombre tone,
                      / D                                            / G7
Well, there's a / reason for the things that I have / on.

               / C                                               /
I wear the /  black for the poor and the beaten / down,
C                                                   / D
Livin' in the hopeless, hungry side of /  town.
  / F         -        C                        / F           -          C
I / wear it for the prisoner, who has / long paid for his crime.
          / D                                               / G7
But is / there because he's a victim of the / times.


  / C                                                     /
I / wear the black for those, who've never / read,
     / C                                             / D
Or / listened to the words, that Jesus / said,
      / F            -                   C                  / F          -          C
A - / bout the road to happi - ness, through / love and chari - ty,
                  / C                                                   / G7      
Why, you'd / think He's talking straight to you and / me.

                 / C                                     /
Well, we're / doin' mighty fine, I do sup - / pose,
         / C                                             / D
In our / streak-of-lightnin' cars and fancy / clothes,
      / F          -          C                     / F           -             C
But / just so we're re -minded, of, the / ones who are held back,
     / C                                          / G7 
Up / front there oughta be a man in / black.


  / C                                         /
I / wear it for the sick and lonely / old,
           / C                                                        / D  
For the / reckless ones, whose bad trip left them / cold,
  / F             -          C                     / F             -              C
I / wear the black in mournin', for the / lives that could have been,
        / C                                                  / G7
Each / week we lose a hundred fine young / men. and


  / C                                                /
I / wear it for the thousands who have / died,
       / C                                            / D
Be - / lievin' that the Lord was on their / side,
  / F          -             C           / F           -              C 
I / wear it for another hundred / thousand who have died,
       / C                                         / G7   
Be - / lievin' that we all were on their / side.


                   / C                                           /
Well, there's / things that never will be right, I / know, and
C                                                   / D
Things need changin' ev'rywhere you / go,
      / F               -              C           / F            -            C
But / 'til we start to make a move, to / make a few things right,
         / C                                      / G7 
You'll / never see me wear a suit of / white.

          / C                                       /
Aw! I'd / love to wear a rainbow every / day, and
                                           / D
Tell the world that ev'rything's / OK,
          / F       -       C           / F          -           C
But I'll / try to carry off a little / darkness on my back,
     / C             -            G7                  / C
'Til / things are brighter,  I'm the man in /  black.


Enjoy!
