     Am                               G   F 
Heaven only knows what's wrong or right, 
     Am                                        G     F 
We sure as hell ain't gonna figure it out tonight,

             Am         F           C               G 
For all that we've searched, for all that we've sold,

Tell me man, what do you think we know? 
  

C Dm Am F Because I've been wandering around for so many years, I know you hear me cry, C Dm Am F I'm bogged down by the mud from my own tears, I know you hear me cry, C Dm Am F Well just the state I'm in, it rocks me to my core, I know you hear me cry, C Dm Am F Won't someone please tell me, won't someone please me what's going on, Am G F Ba ba bada bada ba, ba bada bada ba
(BREAK) Am F C G Spending all our time protecting what we've got, But when we go, you know, all those things do not, For all that we've worked, for all that we wear, When did what we possess become our jails? Cuz it's all just looking a little hairy from down here, We all be looking for love but we taking it apart with fear, For all that we've loved, for all that we've lost, Tell me man, what do you think's the cost? Chorus C Dm Am F Because I've been wandering around for so many years, I know you hear me cry, I'm bogged down by the mud from my own tears, I know you hear me cry, Well just the state I'm in, it rocks me to my core, I know you hear me cry, Won't someone please tell me, won't someone please me what's going on, Am G F Ba ba bada bada ba, ba bada bada ba, (BREAK) (SOLO) Am G F Heaven only knows what's wrong or right, We sure as hell ain't gonna figure it out tonight, Am F C G For all that we've loved, for all that we've lost, Tell me man, what you think's the cost? Chorus C Dm Am F Because I've been wandering around for so many years, I know you hear me cry, I'm bogged down by the mud from my own tears, I know you hear me cry, Well just the state I'm in, it rocks me to my core, I know you hear me cry, Won't someone please tell me, won't someone please me what's going on...
