    On Being Frank by Ben Folds Five
    from the album "The Sound of the Life of the Mind" (2012)
    Gmaj9C/D
    VERSE: 
    GD/GAm/G
    I had it all, or should I say I saw it all? 
    EmBmEmBm
    And it's a long way from the dustbin of New Jersey to the top 
    AmFmaj7
    Who would have known? 
    Dsus4D
    Who would have known 
    GD/GAm/G
    I had a dream, but dreams had other plans for me 
    EmBm
    For 30 years I set the thermostat 
    EmBm
    Where Frank Sinatra liked it, 
    AmEm
    Pulled his girls and hung his hats 
    AmEm
    I never knew which ones were mine 
    BmDD7
    Now he's gone, and I'm alone 
    G
    And I don't know where I might be going 
    Bm
    I heard the wind, the wind stopped blowing 
    Am
    Set me on the roadside coming home 
    DEmCD
    But home, for me was always someone else you know 
    EmCD
    That shadows always fall, when the sun goes down 
    Gmaj9C/D
    VERSE: 
    GD/GAm/G
    I shook the hands, mafia dons and presidents 
    EmBm
    And though they always smile politely 
    EmBm
    With a measure of decorum 
    AmEm
    Still their eyes would scan beyond me 
    AmEm
    For a glimpse of something more 
    Bm
    But now he's gone, 
    DD7
    Now they're gone 
    G
    And I don't know where I might be going 
    Bm
    I heard the wind, the wind stopped blowing 
    Am
    Set me on the roadside coming home 
    DEmCD
    But home, for me was always someone else you know 
    EmCD
    That shadows always fall, when the sun goes down 
    Gmaj9C/D
    PIANO SOLO: 
    AmFmaj7D
    BRIDGE: 
    DEmCD
    Alone, the shadow of a star, don't you know 
    EmCD
    That shadows always fall, yeah shadows always fall, 
    When the sun goes down
    G
    And I don't know where I might be going 
    Bm
    I heard the wind, the wind stopped blowing 
    Am
    Set me on the roadside coming home 
    DEmCD
    And home, for me was always someone else you know
