Intro - optional -: C G C G C G Am G Am G

C                 G
tidal waves don't beg forgiveness
C                   G
crash, then on their way
C            G
father, he enjoyed collisions


Am             G
others walked away
Am                    G
the snowflake falls in may


       Dm
and the doors are open now
       Am
as the bells are ringing out
       F
cuz the man of the hour
        G
has taken his final bow
            C
goodbye for now

Interlude: C G C G C G Am G Am G

C             G
nature has its own religion
C               G
gospel from the land
C               G
father ruled by long division


Am                 G
young men, they pretend
Am            G
old men comprehend


        Dm
and the sky breaks at dawn
         Am              C
shedding light upon this town
       D
we all come 'round
        F
cuz the man of the hour
         G
has taken his final bow
            C
goodbye for now

Interlude: C

        E         F   
and the road, the old man paved
           C               D
the broken seams along the way
           F                     E
the rusted signs, they're just for me
       Am          C            D
he was guiding me, love, his own way


        F 
now the man of the hour
          G
has taken his final bow
      F
as the curtain comes down
       G
i feel that this is just
            C
goodbye for now
