Am      F               | G F |
 I have nothing left to say
Am       F              | G F |
 But I'm gonna say it anyway
Am      F             | G F |
 Thirty years upon a stage

 And I hear the people say: “Why won't he go away?”

 I pass the houses of the dead
Am               F                | G F |

 I'm dead but I don't know (He's dead, he's dead)
Am            F               G          F
 I'm dead but I don't know it (He's dead, he's dead)

Am            F           | G F |
 I've nothing further to report

 Time you spend with me

 Is time you lose
 
[Middle 8]
E7
 I always thought that I would know
            Am            F F/E | Am   F F/E |
When it was time to quit
E7
 That when I lost a step or two or three or four or five
    | Am      F F/E | Am   F F/E |
I'd notice it
F
 Now that I've arrived here safely
          | Am            F F/E | Am   F F/E |
I find my talent has gone
E7
 Why do I go on and on and on and on and on and on?
    E7
And on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on?
    E7
And on and on and on and on and on?
 
CHORUS
Am         F          G          F
(He's dead, he's dead, he's dead) I don't know it
Am         F          G          F
(He's dead, he's dead, he's dead) I didn't know
Am         F          G          F
(He's dead, he's dead, he's dead) I didn't know it

 When will I end this bitter game?
Am           F               | G F |
 When will I end this cruel charade?
Am            F                   | G F |
 Everything I write all sounds the same
 
BRIDGE
     Am              Ab+
Each record that I'm making
          C/C              Am/F#
Is like a record that I've made
N.C.
 Just not as good ...
 
CHORUS
