Company Of Fools
Great Big Sea
"Company Of Fools"(Doyle/Russell Crowe) From "Fortune's Favour"(2008) G D Bring on the Clowns G D The Jokers and Buffoons G I've had the Time of my Life D And the Life of my Time A D In the Company of Fools D Many a truest word G D has been spoken by the Jester G D Standing against the tide A Is the noblest of gestures D little pearls of wisdom G Bm That tumble from the light G D Can make us laugh until we cry A D Because we know that they are right A Within the strangest people D Truth can find the strangest home E So meet me in the village A Where all we idiots go (go!) CHORUS, followed by: D G Bm G Na na natineutinee, na na natineutinee D G Bm A D na na natineutinee, natineutnee na (ho!) I'm wading through the quicksand In the gardens of the gentry Blooming vacuity Leaves mind and pockets empty Now,In the Social Order I accept the bottom rung until the wine is pouring And the Lord commands a song So,Meet me at the staff door When the posers all go home We'll gather with the other Fools And put on a proper show (show!) CHORUS X2, "na na...", then Bridge: A So here's to the Poorest Poet D Who always pens the truth G D an' the Players Writers,Gypsies an' A D The Minstrels and their tunes A I'd rather live an honest lifetime D With those with nothing to lose G D Than waste a night G D Knee deep in shite G D That's polished slick G D To look just right D A I'd rather live a lifetime A D In the Company of Fools BREAK: |D G/F#|G A|X4 Within the strangest people Truth can find the strangest home So meet me in the village where all we idiots go (all we idiots,all we idiots go) CHORUS (Acapella) "Na Na..." Break Chords (double time) to fade, with ad lib.
