JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

play utopia

from free*

here are the chords in C

I usually play this in G up on the 4th or 5th fret. The little riff is made by playing off the A string

C|Am|Dm|G|
I had a dream and then my | dream became my day job | now I cannot find a friend | to listen to me complain |
I had a scheme and then my | scheme became a nightmare | I've gotta find a scheme to fix it | I want to sail away to |

C|Em|Dm|G|
Utopia | Utopia | Further and further on the | edge of the horizon |
Utopia | Utopia | Come about we're tacking to | Utopia |

I had an ideal and so | I became a leader | but something has gone rotten, | and I didn't see it coming |
if I had a song then | I could make it sweeter | standing in the public square | so they could hear me strumming |

C|Em|Dm|G|
Utopia | Utopia | Further and further on the | edge of the horizon |
Utopia | Utopia | Pack your bag we're treking to | Utopia |

Am|Dm|F|G|
Dear Brother, I write you expressing all my past regrets
if I had more power I could make it work

C|Em|Dm|G|
I have a plan | to get me out of prison | I never should have landed here | I didn't do nothing wrong |
under the wall | and then floating in the ocean | then I will be free again | free to start all over in |

C|Em|Dm|G|
Utopia, | Utopia | further and further on | the edge of the horizon
Utopia, | Utopia | come about we're drifting | to Utopia

Utopia, | Utopia | further and further on | the edge of the horizon
Utopia, | Utopia | with the waves we're drifting | to Utopia
