Intro: C F C F C F Dm G 

          C             F        C   F 
There's somethings you never get over 
     C         F       Dm  G 
Whatever your parents say 
   C         F        C           F 
First on my list of these three things 
         Dm                 F       
Is the sight of my father walking away 
  
 C         F             C    F 
Next on my list would be heaven 
   C        F            Dm   G 
I already know what it's like 
      C          F        C      F          Dm                    F 
Cause I fell in love when I was 16 with the absolute love of my life 

  C         F             C     F 
Last on my list would be losing 
      C      F              Dm   G 
But someone always needs to win 
       C           F           C        F          Dm                      F 
And thumbing your nose at the boss I suppose just feels like a beautiful thing 
            
            F                    G 
And it's something that nobody tells you 
     Am        G          F   C 
You figure it out if you can 
              C             F         C           F 
Well there's one thing on earth that no one can touch 
           Am         G       F   C 
It's the sleep of a satisfied man 
           Am         G       F   C 
Yeah the sleep of a satisfied man 

         C           F        C   F 
And I don't know why I love the leaving 
          C            F     Dm   G 
But it's not from lack of loving you 
 C           F           C             F          Dm                   F 
You can't remember when you stopped breathing and I can't remember it too 

 C              F      C    F 
But I'm coming home tomorrow 
    C         F      Dm    G 
And I wanted you to know 
           C      F           C         F           Dm                       F 
That the part of me that can make you smile is the same part that needed to go 


            F                    G 
And it's something that nobody tells you 
     Am        G          F   C 
You figure it out if you can 
            C        F        C           F 
Well they can't interfere or get inside here 
           Am         G       F   C 
It's the sleep of a satisfied man 
           Am         G       F   C 
Yeah the sleep of a satisfied man 

 F                              G 
Of all the things I've had to learn 
            Am 
One won't quit 
      G       F  C 
No matter how I try 
            Am 
One won't quit 
      G             F    C 
It's all that I can stand 
                 Am 
One won't quit 
             G              F   C 
I'll never learn to say goodbye 
       F                           G 
But I hope for your sake that you can 

     C        F        C           F 
And on April 2nd the birth of my heart 
     C              F     Dm           G 
The day that the zombie awoke with a start 
     C             F         C           F 
When I fell for Button and she fell for me 
  Dm                    F           
Back in the spring of 1993 
   C     F  C  F       C           F           Dm      G 
January 7th 2005 the birth of my blood came fully to life 
     C           F        C           F 
When I see St. Peter and ask for my wings 
       Dm                          F 
Just leave me that memory and the joy that it brings 

         F                   G 
It's something that nobody tells you 
      Am       G          F    C 
You figure it out if you can 
            C          F           C    F 
It's the things that you never get over 
            Am               G 
Build the character of a man 

         F                      G 
And if heaven and family and children 
      Am            G         F   C 
Are what's left of me when I die 
         C            F                 C          F            Am        G   F    C 
Then I hope for your sake that you're better than me at this learning to say goodbye 

          F                      G 
Yeah if heaven and family and children 
             Am          G          F   C 
Are what's left of the race that I ran 
             C      F              C       F 
Then I'll quietly slip to the slumbering peace of the 
  Am        G       F    C 
sleep of a satisfied man 
           Am          G       F C 
Yeah the sleep of a satisfied man 
          Am           G       F  C 
Yeah the sleep of a satisfied man 
        
I'm satisfied
