Tuning: Standard

Chords and patter Used:
     Am       F       G      E7     D7    Em

         Am                          F
All you great men of power, you who boast of your feats -
      Am                    F
Politicians and entrepreneurs.
        Am                           F
Can you safeguard your breath in the night while you sleep?
          Am                        F
Keep your heart beating steady and sure?
        G                         E7
As you lie in your bed, does the thought haunt your head
            Am              D7
That you’re really, rather small?
            F                         Em
If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.

        Am                       F
All you champions of science and rulers of men,
        Am                        F
Can you summon the sun from its sleep?
         Am                         F
Does the earth seek your counsel on how fast to spin?
         Am                          F
Can you shut up the gates of the deep?
          G                             E7
Don’t you know that all things hang, as if by a string,
         Am                   D7
O’er the darkness - poised to fall?
           F                         Em
If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.

        Am                          F
All you big shots that swagger and stride with conceit,
         Am                               F
Did you devise how your frame would be formed?
             Am                     F
If you’d be raised in a palace, or live out in the streets,
         Am                                   F
Did you choose the place or the hour you’d be born?
         G                         E7
Tell me what can you claim? Not a thing - not your name!
         Am         D7             F    
Tell me if you can recall just one thing,
That’s not a gift in this life?

Am                         F
Can you hear what’s been said?
        Am           Em           Am           D7
Can you see now that everything’s grace after all?
            F                       Em
If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.
