                I actually posted this transcription some time ago, but considering its
correctness compared to the version at OLGA, I just thought it needed a
repost. I think it's a nifty little tune, well picked by Neil for his
Unplugged concert. Try it out!

 (D5 G5 F5 D5 D) repeated

  D5  G5  F5 D5  D   D5   G5 F5 D5  D     
 You know I lose,   you know I win

  D5  G5  F5 G6
 You know I called for the shape I'm in

  D5   G5  F5 D5  D   D5  G5 F5  D5   D
 It's just a game    you see me play

      F/A          C          G6               D
 Only real in the way that I feel from day to day

				   
 Although the answer is not unknown
 I'm searchin', searchin', and how I've grown
 It's not all right, to say good-bye
 And the world on a string doesn't mean a thing
      
 No the world on a string doesn't mean a thing
 Only real in the way that I feel from day to day


 lyrics: from the c-d sleeve
