[Verse]
     E 
The days, the weeks
         A       
And the years rolled on by all the unending pavement
     G#m       B        A                       C#m     B/Eb     B  
And beauty in the architecture of a two-bed that I can scarcely see
E                     B                 
..You see? There was angels in the ornaments in underneath you
             F#m            E                          A       
And they're hummin' away, hummin' away 'til I get what I need
[Chorus]
E  
Hey, now
G#m                  C#m                    B  
I dunno what to feel, I dunno how to feel right
                F#m      E          A  
But I want to become my own man, I guess
E  
Hey, now
G#m                        C#m
I dunno if I'll ever feel right
                     B                       F#m        G#m   A  
And let everything change to things that can make a man grow tall

[Verse]
            A                                         G#m  
There's a painting of you and it hangs in our kitchen now
         A                             C#m  B/Eb   B   E           
'Cause when my kid's getting high in a hot-wired symphony
              B 
Mm, and I'm looking for sage advice
           F#m            E                       A  
You'll be hummin' away, hummin' away like everything's fine

[Chorus]
E  
Hey, now
G#m                  C#m                    B  
I dunno what to feel, I dunno how to feel right
                F#m      E          A  
But I want to become my own man, I guess
E  
Hey, now
G#m                        C#m
I dunno if I'll ever feel right
                     B                       F#m        G#m   A  
And let everything change to things that can make a man grow tall

[Bridge]
A      C#m   B    G#m B    A            
....So take.... a single step at a simple pace
         C#m               B                       A  
And the outward momentum will maybe un**** you in time
   C#m         B           
So comb your hair and clean your teeth
    G#m    B           A  
And dial back home at least once or twice a week
       F#m                          E                         A   
And be sure that you'll see them a lot more than I did with mine
               F#m             G#m                          A      E  
But if they're out of the way, out of the way, then everything's fine

[Chorus]
E
...
G#m                  C#m                    B  
I dunno what to feel, I dunno how to feel right
                F#m      E          A  
But I want to become my own man, I guess
E  
Hey, now
G#m                        C#m
I dunno if I'll ever feel right
                     B                       F#m        G#m   A  
And let everything change to things that can make a man grow tall

[Outro]
     E    
I'm out of the way, out of the way and everything
G#m                    C#m  
Out of the way, out of the way and everything
 B               F#m                   E                
Out of the way, hummin' away, hummin' away, hummin' away
  A        
Hummin' away, out of the way and everything
E 
Out of the way, out of the way and everything
G#m                    C#m  
Out of the way, out of the way and everything  
B                         F#m             G#m     A   
Out of the way, out of the way and everything's fine
