The Riddle

	  		Capo first fret 
Intro     A  Aadd2  Asus4  A  (repeat) 
A     Aadd2        Asus 4 A 
There was a man back in '95 
     A           Aadd2 
Whose heart ran out of summers  
    Asus4    A      F#m 
But before he died, I asked him  
Wait, what's the sense in life 
          D     D2      Esus4 E 
Come over me, Come over me 
He said, 
 A2               Asus4     A  
Son why you got to sing that tune  
          A      Aadd2       Asus4          A 
Catch a Dylan song or some eclipse of the moon 
Let an angel swing and make you swoon 
         D      D2     Esus4   E 
Then you will see... You will see 
Then he said, 
Here's a riddle for you 
A        F#m7

         D       D2     E 
There's a reason for the world 
     A  Aadd2  Asus4 A    (repeat)

A      Aadd2        Asus4  A 
Picked up my kid from school today 
        A      Aadd2            Asus4  A 
Did you learn anything cause in the world today 
             F#m          F#m7     
You can't live in a castle far away 
        D      D2        Esus4    E 
Now talk to me, come talk to me 
He said,  
A          Aadd2           Asus4     A 
Dad I'm big but we're smaller than small 
       A         Aadd2            Asus      A 
In the scheme of things, well we're nothing at all 
                 F#m                          F#m7    
Still  every mother's child sings a lonely song 
      D        D2       Esus4    E                
So play with me, come play with me 
And Hey Dad

D         E              A                 F#m  
There are secrets that we still have left to find 
D             E                A             G 
There have been mysteries from the beginning of time 
D        E                A    A/G#      F# 
There are answers we're not wise enough to see

A song plays on while the moon is hiding over me 
Something comes over me

I guess we're big and I guess we're small

If you think about it man you know we got it all            F#m7 
Cause we're all we got on this bouncing ball 
And I love you free 
I love you freely 
D        E
