INTRO

| C | % |

C                  G6     G*

A penny in your pocket,

Am                    Em    C7/Bb

A suitcase in your hand,

F                     C/E

They won't get you very far,

             Dm                   F/G     G6 G*

Now you're a twenty-first century man

C                  G6     G*

Fly across the city,

Am                Em    C7/Bb

Far above the land,

F                   C/E

You can do most anything,

         Dm                   Bb  Bb/A  Bb/Ab

You're a twenty-first century man

G            G/F         C/E       F          Dm  Am

Though you ride on the wheels of tomorrow,

G           G/F        C/E            F                     Fm

You still wander the fields of your sorrow - what will it bring?

C                   G6     G*

One day you're a hero,

Am                       Em    C7/Bb

The next day you're a clown,

F                          C/E

There's nothing that is in between,

             Dm                   F/G     G6 G*

Now you're a twenty-first century man

C                   G6     G*

You should be so happy,

Am                  Em    C7/Bb

You should be so glad,

F                    C/E

So why are you so lonely,

         Dm                   Bb  Bb/A  Bb/Ab

You're a twenty-first century man

G             G/F              C/E           F          

You stepped out of a dream believing everything was gone,

G             G/F                         C/E                 F          Fm     

Return with what you've learned they'll kiss the ground you walk upon.

SOLO

| C | G6 G* | Am | Em C7/Bb | F | C/E |

Dm                   F/G     G6 G*

Twenty-first century man

C                        G6                 G*

Things aren't how you thought they were,

Am                  Em     C7/Bb

Nothing have you planned,

F                                 C/E

So pick up your penny and your suitcase,

             Dm                   Bb  Bb/A  Bb/Ab

You're not a twenty-first century man.

G            G/F         C/E       F          Dm  Am

Though you ride on the wheels of tomorrow,

G           G/F        C/E            F          Fm

You still wander the fields of your sorrow - tomorrow

                     C     Dm    Em    

Twenty-first century man [maaaaan]

F                    C     Dm    Em    F

Twenty-first century man [maaaaan]

                     C     Dm    Em    

                     [maaaaan]

F                    C     Dm    Em    F

Twenty-first century man [maaaaan]
