G                          C (w/riff 1)
The city blues they strike again
G                        Em (w/riff 2)
Another worker drops his pen
               F                   G
He wants to be done and out on the run
              F                        G
Away from the curse, he'd swap all his worth
                   D (w/main riff)
To be a man of the earth


G                       C (w/riff 1)
For 2 or 3 weeks of the year
G                                Em (w/riff 2)
An Easter bunny brings Christmas cheer
                F                     G
He's out of his head and toasting the dead
                 F                        G
And feeling much worse, he'd swap all his worth
                   D (w/main riff)
To be a man of the earth
To swap all his worth, to be a man of the earth


Em               G           C                G
Words become the man if only he could write a sonnet
     C               G                         D (w/main riff)
He'd place his life upon it to be a man of the earth
A man of the earth, he'd swap all his worth to be a man of the earth


G                             C(w/riff1)
The wife and kids are already there
G                            Em(w/riff2)
They're polishing his wicker chair
                F                       G
It's looking so bleak at the end of the week
                   F                        G
He'll be needing a nurse, he'd swap all his worth
                   D(w/main riff)
To be a man of the earth, a man of the earth


Em               G           C                G
Words become the man if only he could write a sonnet
     C               G                         D (w/main riff)
He'd place his life upon it to be a man of the earth
A man of the earth, he'd swap all his worth to be a man of the earth
