Verse 1

Hey mister take a-load-off let-me-explain,
I'm not hidin' from-'y-carry-the-blame,
Have-yourself a good-look from the Sa-ska-toon plain
Nothing's that clear in life I swear by the-claim.
I rack my conscience for the will to achieve;
Bb      [guitar pause]                     [F; see below]
I could lie, die, cry and to this day not receive.


Chorus 1
F             C      F          C  F        
 C         F      C
Cause I'm not steady like Eddy. ...I may not smile for a while.
F                   C           F            C
Got-a-little-of-the-devil and a mean streak.
F             C         F
'cz-I-hope to one, day, be, com-plete.
                C  [guitar pause]    F             [stop]
In-the-meantime, yes..... We're just chippin'-away.

Verse 2
[gets fuller now]  F
Eh, got-'ole Michael-Hehir playin'-on-guitar.
Sometimes we go-for-months, not talk at-all.
No crumblin' wall here, the journey's come-too-far.
'O rocket spaceship, take us to-the-stars!
They're building castles straight up to the sky,
        C  [guitar pause]
But the Empire States still looks to me like it's high...

Chorus 1 (again)
[Sing once with inserted bridge below.
Sing again with first two lines quiet
Sing again with ohno's and yea's all over]

F       C      F          C F         C
          F       C
I'm not steady like Eddy.   I may not smile for a while.
F                   C           F             C
Got-a-little-of-the-devil and a mean streak.
    F         C         F
'cz-I hope-to one, day, be, com-plete, yea

[After first iteration only:
                   C  [guitar pause]  F
'n-in the meantime, yes... we're just chippin'-away.

O yea ]

Chorus 2
F               C         F       C    F    
     C         F        C
(God) I'm not steady like Eddy, 'o oh. I may not smile for a-while.
F                                                 C
God, bless, the poor man, who knoooows what-he-seeks.
'cz-I hope to one day be complete.
               C  [guitar pause]                 F
In the meantime, yea, ... ... ... we're just ... chippin'-away.

F           F           F
Woo-o-o-oo, Woo-o-o-oo, Woo-o-o-oo.
