                Intro - Am

        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                         G#dim
As you lie in your bed, does the thought haunt your head
     Am                      D#dim
That you’re really, rather small?
           F                        Em                     Am
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                             G#dim
Don’t you know that all things hang, as if by a string, 
         Am                   D#dim
O’er the darkness - poised to fall?
           F                        Em                     Am
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                            G#dim
Tell me what can you claim? Not a thing - not your name!
          Am       Am*  D#dim         F
Tell me if you can re - call just one thing,
                  F* F    Em 
That’s not a gift in this life?

        Dm
Can you hear what’s been said?
        C7Maug5                   Am          D#dim
Can you see now that everything’s grace after all?
               F                    Em                   Am
If there’s one thing I know in this life: we are beggars all.

(Am* - accent Am with a finger on 3rd fret on E string)
(F* - Add note with a finger on 3rd fret on E string, technically same as Am* but easier not to change your
whole hand position)

C7Maug5
A I---I-2-I---I---I     I---I is supposed to be a fret lol
E I---I---I---I---I
C I---I---I---I---I
G I-1-I---I---I---I

Outro
