Intro: C, C/G, Am, F


           C		   C/G
It's been years, he's been here

	      Am         	  F
and time just lingers and no one knows

          C		C/G
He's got eyes, he's got ears

	 	   Am			    F
He's got all of his fingers, and all of his toes

 F		  Em
His is a life of observation

 F              	     Em                  Am
Maybe one day he'll get to translate this information

 F                           Em
For twenty years, he hasn't spoken a word

 F                          G
He's been silent since the accident occured

 C    					C/G
While so many people taken tongues for granted

 C/G					    F
Taking the truth, finding ways to slant it

 F				     C
I know a man who'd know what to do

 C			  	   C/G
And so many people go day in and day out
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/j/jeffrey_gaines/i_know_a_man_crd.html ]
 C/G					      F
just dreaming of things they can bitch about

 F				    C
I know a man who'd know what to do

 C				C/G
It's a dream, for him it's real

            Am                   F
but it never goes away and never will

 C			  C/G
He's in touch with what he feels

               Am		 	      F
Oh but he just can't say, "Maybe it's better still"

 F		  Em
His is a life of endless frustration

 F			      Em               Am
He's got his pride, he's not exempt from humiliation

 F			Em
Can't lift a finger to stop what's wrong

 F                     G
He can't lift a leg to dance to a Beatles song

 C				       C/G
While so many people taking spines for granted

 C/G						F
Slither and squirm, taking what they're handed

 F				    C
I know a man who'd know what to do

 C			     C/G
And so many people go day by day

 C/G					       F
Sitting on their hands, constantly complaining

 F				     C
I know a man who'd know what to do

(instrumental)

C, C/G, Am, F

 C				  C/G
And so many content to exist like sheep

 C/G						    F
Never scratching the surface of themselves too deep

 F				    C
I know a man who'd know what to do

 C				C/G
And so many people like you and me

 C/G					 F
Never realizing what our lives could be

 F				    C
I know a man who'd know what to do
