G G G G
See him wasted on the sidewalk in his jacket and his jeans
C C G G
Wearing yesterday's misfortunes like a smile
C C G Em
Once he had a future full of money, love, and dreams
A7 A7 D D
Which he spent like they were going outa style
G G G G
And he keeps right on a changing for the better or the worse
C D G G
Searching for a shrine he's never found
C C G G
Never knowing if believing is a blessing or a curse
C D G G
Or if the going up was worth the coming down
 
C C G G
He's a poet, he's a picker, he's a prophet, he's a pusher
D D D G
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
C C G G
He's a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction
D D D G G
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home
 
A A A A
He has tasted good and evil in your bedrooms and your bars
D D A A
And he's traded in tomorrow for today
D D A F#m
Running from his devils, Lord, and reaching for the stars
B7 B7 E E
And losing all he's loved along the way
A A A A
But if this world keeps right on turning for the better or the worse
D E A A
And all he ever gets is older and around
D D A A
From the rocking of the cradle to the rolling of the hearse
D E A A
The going up was worth the coming down
 
D D A A
He's a poet, he's a liar, he's a prophet, he's a dreamer
E E E A
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
D D A A
He's a walking contradiction, partly truth and partly fiction
E E E A A
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home
 
E E E A:coda riff
There's a lotta wrong directions on that lonely way back home
