[Verse 1]
Em       D            G
..In the morning I’m slow
Em         D          G        C   C
..I drag a chair over to the window
    Em
And I
      D           G
watch what’s going on
Em          D           G       C      C
..A garbage truck tiptoes along the road
Em        D              G
..Light a candle for the suffering
Em        D           G        C   C
..Send my best wishes with the wind
    Em           D          G
All our candles, hopes n prayers
Em            D            G            C    C
..though well-meaning they don’t mean a thing,
  Em      D        G
unless we see some change
        Em        D         G
I might change my sheets today.

[Chorus]
     C       G         D                 G
Well time is money and money is no man’s friend
        C           G             
And all eyes on the pavement
    D                  Am                    C   Am    Em
I’m not gonna touch ya don’t worry so much about it.......

[Verse 2]
          D       G
The day begins to shine
Em           D           G         C
..The parent teaches the child how to ride the
Em           D        G
Bike wobbles side to side
Em           D        G       C      C
..Two dogs entangle, everybody smiles
Em         D           G
..The pair across the street
Em             D          G           C
..One’s up the ladder and one’s on their knees
    Em       D     G
painting the faded brick
           Em              D
What’s the point, it looks fine from up here.

[Chorus]
     C       G         D                 G
Well time is money and money is no man’s friend
        C           G
And all eyes on the pavement
    D                  Am                    C
I’m not gonna touch ya don’t worry so much about it

[Post-Chorus]
G        C       G       C      G      D
I’m just waiting for the day to become night

[Verse 3]
Em              D          G
..Next door the kids run amok
Em             D                G         C    C
..The mother screams “don’t you ever shut-up?”
Em            D           G
..And there’s one thing I know
Em             D      G          C
..the sun will rise today and tomorrow
         Em         D       G
We got a long, long way to go.

[Chorus]
     C       G         D                 G
Well time is money and money is no man’s friend
        C           G
And all eyes on the pavement
    D                  Am                    C
I’m not gonna touch ya don’t worry so much about it

[Post-Chorus]
G        C       G       C      G      D
I’m just waiting for the day to become night

[Chorus 2]
         C           G       C         G
And I'll Shine those shoes n mow those lawns
      C        G     D
let’s get back to normal
           C      G      C            G
Lay it all on the table, you seem so stable
  C             G       D
But you’re just hanging on
            C    G
Let go that expectation
C           G
Change the station
  C          G        D    D7
And find out what you want....
