THE MAN WHO KNEW TOO MUCH

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


NOTE: B* = Bsus4(add+5)


           A
  I.  I see bones inside my feet
          C             D
      and girders in skyscrapers
          F#m
      and black hearts on the street
          C              D
      and scarlet-letter neighbors.
            Em                    G6
         if ignorance is bliss,   (guitar)
              Aadd9                   Cmaj7 - B*
         what kind of hell is this?   (strum)


           A
 II.  do I dare look at my wife,
         C              D
      my children or my parents
         F#m
      if innocence in life
         C        D
      is only incoherence?
            Em                  G6
         if Paradise is hell,   (guitar)
         Aadd9           Cmaj7  B*     A
         (guitar)  where do the angels dwell?


INSTRUMENTAL:  A - C - D  (twice)
               Em - Cmaj7 - B*


        A
III.  a killer shot a man
          C             D
      who dared to recognize him.
           F#m
      I'll get out while I can
          C             D
      and paint a new horizon.
           Em                    G6
         amnesia comes to touch  (guitar)
             Aadd9                   Cmaj7 - B*
         the man who knew too much.  (strum)


        A
 IV. or should I learn forgiveness
        C                  D
     at each bridge when I cross it,
         F#m
     and say of every skeleton:
             C            D
     there's one in every closet
          Em               G6
       up in the citadel   (guitar)
       Aadd9            Cmaj7    B*     A   -   C  -  D
       (guitar)  where  all  the angels dwell.  (instr like intro)


INSTRUMENTAL:  Em - G6 - Aadd9 - Cmaj7 - B*  (repeat & ad lib)
               Em
