Artist : Father John Misty
Song : Ballad Of The Dying Man

Intro : F Fmaj7 F7 F Bb F/A Gm Abdim7 Gm Gm7

Verse 1 :

F Dm Eb Gm Gm7
Naturally the dying man wonders to himself
F Dm Eb Gm Gm7
Has commentary been more lucid than anybody else?
Am F7
And had he successively beaten back the rising tide
Dm Dbmaj-5
Of idiots, dilettantes, and fools
Abdim7 Gm
On his watch while he was alive
F Abdim7 Db Dm
Lord, just a little more time

Chorus 1 :
F Fmaj7 F7 F
Oh, in no time at all
Bb F/A Gm
This'll be the distant past
G7 Gm Gm7
Ooh

Verse 2 :
F Dm Eb Gm Gm7
So says the dying man once I'm in the box
F Dm Eb Gm Gm7
Just think of all the overrated hacks running amok
Am F7
And all of the pretentious, ignorant voices that will go unchecked
Dm Dbmaj-5
The homophobes, hipsters, and 1%
Abdim7 Gm
The false feminists he'd managed to detect
F Abdim7 Db Dm
Oh, who will critique them once he's left?

Chorus 2 :
F Fmaj7 F7 F
Oh, in no time at all
Bb F/A C
This'll be the distant past

Bridge :

Ab C F Bb
What he'd give for one more day to rate and analyze
Gm C F Bb
The world made in his image as of yet to realize
Dm Gm C
What a mess to leave behind

Verse 3 :
F Dm Eb Gm Gm7
Eventually the dying man takes his final breath
F Dm Eb Gm Gm7
But first checks his news feed to see what he's 'bout to miss
Am F7
And it occurs to him a little late in the game
Dm Dbmaj-5
We leave as clueless as we came
Abdim7 Gm
From rented heavens to the shadows in the cave
F Abdim7 Db Dm
We'll all be wrong someday

Outro :

"Oh oh oh"

End : Bb F/A Gm Gm7
