VERSE
C#m7addA                Bm7sus4                  Amaj7
         You surely are        a truly gifted kid
 
                        B9/A                             C#m7addA
But you're only good as      the last great thing you did
 
                              Bm7sus4                             Amaj7
And where you been since then?       Did the schedule get you down?
 
                                   B9/A                           Dmaj7
I hear you've got a new girlfriend   -  How's the wife taking it?
 
 
        Amaj7              Dmaj7              Amaj7            C#m7addA
If it's uphill all the way      you should be used to it by now
 
 
                 Bm7sus4                      Amaj7
You must know me,         Father it's your son
 
                              B9/A                         C#m7addA
And I know that you are proud       of everything I've done
 
                               Bm7sus4                            Amaj7
But it's the wonders I perform,        Pulling rabbits out of hats
 
                          B9/A                      Dmaj7
When sometimes I'd prefer       Simply to wear them
 
 
        Amaj7             Dmaj7               Amaj7          C#m7
If it's uphill all the way      you should be used to it and say
 
           F#aug                 Bm7sus4              C#aug
My back is       broad enough sir        to take the strain  - and it's
 
 
Dmaj7         E                    F#m                  Bm7
Hello mother, it's your son  - and aren't you proud, of all I've done
 
        Dmaj7              E
But I'm turkey hungry, I'm chicken free,
 
    F#m                Bm7
And I can't breakdance on your knee
 
 
          Amaj7                 C#m7
But it's "stay right there son, baby do"
 
      B7/A             Bm7
While I is itchin' for something new
 
   Amaj7                C#m7
So watch me hawkeye     understand
 
    B7/A               Bm7
The force of will, the sleight of hand
 
 
           Amaj7      B7/A
Movin' the ri     -   ver,
 
    Bm13         Bm7     D/E

Movin' the ri     -   ver,  Bucket by spoon

And do you think that they'll like me when they learn what I do?
 
Bm7        Amaj7            Aaug      C#m7
Movin' the ri     -   ver,  Money for jam,
 
       C#7b5b9       F#m       F#aug        Dmaj7  C#m7   F#m
And it takes such an effort to stay where I am
 
 
Bm7       Amaj7                 C#m7
And it's "stay right there son, baby do"
 
      B7/A             Bm7
While I is itchin' for something new
 
   Amaj7                C#m7
