Ballad Of The Dying Man

F  Fmaj7  F7  F  Bb  F/A  Gm  Abdim7  Gm (Gm7) 
verse 1  
F                   Dm    Eb           Gm (Gm7) 
Naturally the dying man wonders to himself: 
F                          Dm   Eb           Gm (Gm7) 
Has commentary been more lucid than anybody else? 
     Am                                   F7 
And had he successively beaten back the rising tide 
                Dm                  Db(5b) 
Of idiots, dilettantes, and fools 
                 Abdim7      Gm 
On his watch while he was alive 
F        Abdim7            Db    Dm 
Lord, just a little more time 
F Fmaj7 F7 F Oh, in no time at all Bb F/A Gm This'll be the distant past G7 Gm (Gm7) Ooh
verse 2 F Dm Eb Gm (Gm7) So says the dying man once I'm in the box F Dm Eb Gm (Gm7) Just think of all the overrated hacks running amok Am F7 And all of the pretentious, ignorant voices that will go unchecked Dm Db(5b) The homophobes, hipsters, and 1% Abdim7 Gm The false feminists he'd managed to detect F Abdim7 Db Dm Oh, who will critique them once he's left?
F Fmaj7 F7 F Oh, in no time at all Bb F/A C This'll be the distant past
Bridge Ab C F Bb What he'd give for one more day to rate and analyze Gm C F Bb The world made in his image as of yet to realize Dm Gm C What a mess to leave behind verse 3 F Dm Eb Gm (Gm7) Eventually the dying man takes his final breath F Dm Eb Gm (Gm7) But first checks his news feed to see what he's 'bout to miss Am F7 And it occurs to him a little late in the game Dm Db(5b) We leave as clueless as we came Abdim7 Gm From rented heavens to the shadows in the cave F Abdim7 Db Dm We'll all be wrong someday Outro While Josh sings the "Oh oh oh" bit and the choir comes in, just repeat this sequence until the end of the song: Bb F/A Gm (Gm7)
