Intro

G [G/f#] C9 [G/f#] G [G/f#] G G [G/f#] C9 [G/f#] As he taxes a draw on the 15th floor G [G/f#] G He can't help cursing his luck G [G/f#] C9 [G/f#] Life could have dealt him such a different hand G [G/f#] G Maybe 2 across and 23 up G [G/f#] C9 [G/f#] But there ain't door on the 38th floor G [G/f#] D No shortcut out of this dump G [G/f#] C9 [G/f#] The nearer high rise comes closer to the skies G [G/f#] G The temptation to actually jump GAnd it's sadder the leaving than left Sadder the going than C9gone Saddest of all is the person bereft Of the Dchance to jump off or walk on GFalling from ladder, landing on dagger [G/f#] C9 A thousand and one ways to die Better the brave and the Gearly to grave And Ddamn those too frightned to Gtry As he awaits the last score on the 25th floor He looks down at the madness below It's always some Grimsby or Scunthorpe Some place he ain't been or won't go And as result comes in and his head goes down Yet another week he's gonna be stuck Where the betting slips rain like confetti Let down, thrown out or screwed up And it's sadder the leaving than left Sadder the going than gone Saddest of all is the person bereft Of the chance to jump off or walk on Falling from ladder, landing on dagger A thousand and one ways to die Better the brave and the early to grave And damn those too frightned to try GSo we wish you good spaces in faraway places Good luck in the folk that you C9meet Cause if you don't travel, the dust and the gravel Will Dswallow you up from your feet This Gsong that we give, please carry it with To remind you we long your C9return Travel thee far and Gtravel thee well And bring Dback every lesson you Glearn *DannyInE*
