I know this sounds like a joke but there ain't no time to smile A7/E-A7/F#... Two guys walk up straight into a bar for something strong with ice We both know who they is And it ain't so strange as it would seem For the man who does just what he should D-Dmaj7... And the man you want me to be VERSE TWO ========= Well they size each other up through the smoke and the neon glow They ain't too sure where they met before in someone else's clothes It sure ain't a gambler's scene It's a dead set John Ford dream For the man who does just what he should And the man you want me to be BRIDGE ONE ========== G Well you know they both dress real nice And they'd never tell a lie E7 They're straight up even when they're falling down A7 And they treat their ladies right LINK ==== D-Dmaj7... e|--2-2-0-0-----0~---------0-1-2~-- B|----------3-2-----2h3~--3-------- G|--------------------------------- D|--------------------------------- A|--------------------------------- E|--------------------------------- VERSE THREE =========== Well they don't cry at the drop of a note and they think the small things through They drink like it's a pleasure, they're consistent and not see through But I'm sure I've seen them sometimes Look like they don't know where they're sposed to be For the man who does just what he should And the man you want me to be BRIDGE TWO ========== I'm angry sad and delirious Sometimes I feel my chest just cannot take this I want to be real tough But I'm made of different stuff VERSE FOUR ========== I wanna buy those boys some drinks until their brains congeal Let their jaws go slack and see what secrets I can steal Cause even though they're staking me out Can't you see I've got one last shout To become the man who does what he should D-Dmaj7... And the man you want me to be The man you want me to be The man you want me to be End with Dadd5
