Intro:
the_man_too_strong
Dm                                                                              C
I am just an aging drummer-boy, and in the wars I used to play
.              Bb                                              Dm
And I’ve called a tune to many a torture session.
Dm                                                                     C
Now they say I am a war criminal, and I’m a-fading away.
Bb
Father, please hear my confession.

G                                             D
I have legalized robbery and called it belief
G                                       D
I have run with the money, I have hid like a thief
G                                                   D
I have rewritten history with my armies and my crooks
D            C             Am                          D
Invented memories, I did burn all the books
.               Dm                                             C                    Am
And I can still hear his laughter, and I can still hear his song
.                       Em                                 D C     D C    C G
The man’s too big, the man’s too strong

G                                            D
Well I have tried to be meek And I have tried to be mild
G                                    D
But I spat like a woman And sulked like a child
G                                         D
I have lived behind walls That have made me alone
D                  C             Am                     D
Striven for peace Which I have never known

.               Dm                                              C                         Am
And I can still hear his laughter, and I can still hear his song
.                       Em                               D C    D C      C G
The man’s too big, the man’s too strong



G                                                       D
Well the sun rose on the courtyard And they all did hear him say
G                                        D
‘You always were a Judas But I got you anyway
G                                             D
You may have got your silver But I swear upon my life
D                                 C            Am                               D
Your sister gave me diamonds And I gave them to your wife’
.        Dm                           C                           Am
Oh father please help me For I have done wrong
.                       Em                             D C    D C     C G
The man’s too big, the man’s too strong
