Fall of the world's own optimist

Capo on 1st fret
	  		 
 
C           C/Bb              Am        Am/G# 
There's no charity in you and that surprises me 
C                                   Am           E 
I guess I thought you were a golden idol cause I called you majesty 
Am       G            Am                          
On the balustrade you watched me hunt for  
D                                    D7 
Tips I was obliged to pick up from the passing trade 
 
C             F                  Am           Am7           D7 
Hey, kids--look at this it's the fall of the world's own optimist 
C                             F                        Am    Am7/G  Bb E 
I could get back up if you insist but you'll have to ask politely 
               Am                      E                      C                 G 
Cause the eggshells I've been treading couldn't spare me a beheading  
         F      Am     Dm            F        Am        G      G7 
And I'll know I had it coming from a Caesar who was only slumming 
C     Bb     F                   Am         D/F#           F    C 
Hey, kids--look at this it's the fall of the world's own optimist 
 
C             C/Bb              Am        Am/G# 
Well, I could have objections which you could override 
C                                           D/F#                  
But what's the point--we're only flogging the horse  
               E                 E7 
When the horseman has up and died 
Am       G                Am                D 
Once I testified and swore I'd never leave a stone unturned 
  D7 
I bet you're really glad that I lied 
 
{chorus} 
 
{solo}  Am E C G   F Am Dm    F Am G G7 
 
C          F                         Am           Am7           D7 
Hey, kids--look at this it's the fall of the world's own optimist 
C                     F                        Am    Am7/G  Bb E 
I could get back up if you insist but you'll have to ask politely 
              Am       Am7/G Bb E 
yes, you'll have to ask politely 
              Am        Am7/G Bb 
yes, you'll have to ask
