The Man In the Wilderness

Chords and lyrics for The Man In the Wilderness by Natalie Merchant

Em 
The Man in the wilderness
 
He  
C 
asked of me
G 
How many strawberries grow  
Am 
in 
 
 
B 
the salt  
Em 
sea?
 
And I  
G 
answered 
 
 
Em 
him, as  
Am 
I thought  
A 
good
Em 
As many a ship  
C 
sails in the  
G 
wood
 
Em 
The 
 
 
Am 
Man in  
Am 
Em 
the 
 
 
Em 
wilderness
 
He  
G 
asked 
 
 
Em 
me, 
 
 
Am 
Why
Gaug 
His 
 
 
Em 
hare 
 
 
B 
could 
 
 
Gaug 
swim 
 
 
Em 
and 
 
 
G 
his 
 
 
C 
pig could fly?
G 
And I  
Em 
answered 
 
 
Am 
him, 
 
 
Em 
as I thought best
 
They were  
Am 
both 
 
 
Em 
born 
 
 
Am 
in a  
Em 
cuckoo’s 
 
 
G 
nest
 
Em 
The Man in  
Am 
the 
 
 
Em 
wilderness
 
Asked  
B 
me to  
Gaug 
tell
Em 
Tell all the sands in the sea and I  
Em 
Am 
counted 
 
 
C 
them 
 
 
B 
well
 
And  
G 
with the  
Em 
grain, well, not one  
Em 
Am 
more
 
I  
C 
answered 
 
 
B 
him, you go  
Em 
make 
 
sure
 
Said with the  
Am 
grain, 
 
 
Am 
Em 
well, 
 
 
C 
not 
 
 
B 
one 
 
more
Em 
 
 
Gaug 
answered him, you  
Em 
go make sure
 
I  
C 
Am 
answered 
 
 
B 
him, 
 
 
Gaug 
you…you 
 
 
B 
go make  
Em 
sure
