Bm7  Bm  C#m        B
When the world is a monster
Bm7 Bm   C#m        B
Bad to swallow you whole
E                            B     G# (open B and E strings)
Kick the clay that holds the teeth in
G6                        F# (open B and E strings)
Throw your trolls out the door

Bm7 Bm   C#m         B
If you're needing inspiration
Bm7   C#m             B     B7
Philomath is where I go by dawn
E                        B   G#
Lawyer Jeff he knows the lowdown
G6                        F#
He's mighty bad to visit home

E         A        F#      B
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                         .......F#

{same as other verse}
When your hands are feeling empty
Stick head jumpin off the ground, 'round
Tris is sure to shirr the deers out
Brother Ray can sing my song

I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way

B            D                  A   B
Hands down, Calechee bound
B           D                  A   B
Landlocked kiss the ground
Dirt of seven continents going round and round
Go on ahead Mr. Citywide hypnotized, suit and tied
Gentlemen, testify
                      .....F#

{same as before}
If your world is a monster
Bad to swallow you whole
Philomath they know the lowdown
Throw your trolls out the door

I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way
                  Can't get there from here
I've been there I know the way

Thank you, Ray.
