The Great Puzzle - Jules Shear
	G				Am			C				G
Once again I have forgotten my final destination after chasing it down too
many suns
	C				G							D
So tonight you and I bring desperation to this highway, and we're not the only
ones
	G			Am				C		G
Outside a stillness that could only be summer and we are Mendicino bound
	C			G							D
Feeling out of place as the ship that keeps on forward long after it's run
aground
	C								D
And I'm thinking ahead too much, but what are we then, when we're not thinking
at all
	C							D
I've got so many loose ends, dragging behind me, mysteries that want to be
solved
CHORUS:
	Am						C	            Am					C
Like a maze where you could take a thousand paths,  Like all the questions
that it does no good to ask
	Am				D	      		C					G
Some might accept it, some might complain,  It's a great puzzle, but you've
gotta like games

	G				Am			C		G
Like a candle that's been recently blown out, I can still smell the smoke
	C				G					D
>From a chance turned to missed opportunity, my latest enemy of hope
	G				Am				C		G
A gambler knows exactly how much you give away with a smile and it's real
	C			G					D
But I only gamble on myself these days, I prefer the way it feels
	C								D
And I'm thinking aloud too much, giving too much up,  I can't wait to see the
world as it is
	C								D
And have a whole perception turn from ruins to exception, with the one tiny
detail I miss
CHORUS
ADD:
			C				G
You've gotta like games, and working them through
				D		Am						G
Figuring out why some win and some lose, and where does that leave me and you
 
	C												D
I've met coal miners who hate coal, thieves who hate what they stole, and they
think they've figured it out
	C
Rich men who sleep preserved in warmth, who can't be hurt by any storm, 
	D
And they think they know what life is about

	Am						C		        Am				C
But it's a maze where you could take a thousand paths  It's all the questions
that it does no good to ask
	Am				D
Some might reject it, some go insane
	C				       G		           	C				
It's a great puzzle, but you've gotta like games,  It's a great puzzle, but
                    G	CGCG
 you've gotta like games
