Repeat


Chorus:

F C G Let it pass, I guess.

F C G It’ll come to rest in the

D morning with the 

C dawning 

C F G comes a new day. 

C F G Let it pass away 

C  don’t let the 

F past day make you 

G  C break. 


G  C x3


G  C There’s a weight on my 

G  C shoulder. 

G  C Feels like a 

G  C boulder.

Am Break out the 

E sledge. 

E Hammer ‘til it’s 

Am dead. 

Dm Ain’t much more 

C satisfying then to 

F C G break it all away. I 

G F C forgot what I was saying.

F  C Can’t blame me for 

G  trying.


F C G x4


Chorus:

F C G Let it pass, I guess.

F C G It’ll come to rest in the

D morning with the 

C dawning 

C F G comes a new day. 

C F G Let it pass away 

C  don’t let the 

F past day make you 

G  C gray. 


G  C x3


G  C Another gray hair on my

G  C head.

G  C Better than being 

G  C dead. 

Am Maybe each one’s a 

E problem 

E better left un-

Am solved, but

Dm where, oh, where is 

C my hair dye to 

F C G cover up the future 

G F C I got a face?

F  C Can’t blame me. It’s the 

G  C race.


G  C x3

C F G  G F C x2


C F G  G F C How do we know what we want to show is 

C F G  G F C seen by the ones we want to know

C F G  G F C we want there to be repair when

C F G  G F C things aren’t square but left thread bare.

F    C Maybe being naked is only 

G  C fair.


G  C x3


G  C Someone said something some-

G  C where.

G  C Misunderstood, it caused a 

G  C scare.

Am A domino when 

E misaligned

E can be a blessing

Am in disguise and

Dm disrupt the dis-

C rupting force that 

F C G pushed the dominoes

G F C turning friends to foes.

F  C Can’t blame me. Just how it

G  C goes.


G  C x3


G  C Can’t blame

G  C me. 

G  C I am just a

G  C weed

G  C growing where I

G  C can.

G  C Can’t blame me or com-

G  C mand. Can’t blame

G  C me. Can’t blame

G  C me. Can’t blame

G  C me. 


G  C Like a tadpole swimming in a pond I’m 

G  C bound to grow into a frog.

G  C  x2

G  C Like a banjo player in a band 

G  C playing second fiddle still deserves a hand. Like 

G  C  x2

G  C anyone anywhere anytime 

G  C might be accused of a false 

G  C crime.
