Evaporated Ben Folds Five
as translated by skip allums, 1997.

F Am Bb C
F Am Bb C

F Am Bb C
what i've kept with me and what i've thrown away
F Am Bb C
now where the hell i've ended up on this glary random day
Dm C Bb Am
where the things i really cared about just left along the way
C
from being to pent up and proud


woke up way to late feelin hungover and old
and the sun was shining bright as i walked barefoot down the road
started thinkin bout my old man it seeems that all men
wanna get into their car and go

Am Bb
any- where

Bb C Dm Am
here i stand sad and free
Bb C Dm Am
i can't cry i can't see
Bb C
what i've done
Dm Am Bb
oh god what have i done?


F Am Bb C
F Am Bb C

2nd verse

chorus

bridge-thingy


F Am Bb
....and evaporated see?

3rd verse (quiet)

blind man on a canyon's edge of a panoramic scene
or maybe i'm a kite just flyin high in random dangling a string
or slumped over in a vacant room, head on stranger's knee
i'm sure back home they think i've lost my mind

chorus


i didn't put the chords to the bridge-thingy cuz i'm not sure what they
are. i always just play the verse chords, but thats not really right. get
back to me if you figger them out.

Wanna get into a car and go

Dm Am Bb

(same)
So don't you know I'm numb, man No I don't feel a thing at all

Cause its all smiles & business these days and I am indifferent to the loss

I've faith that there's a soul whose leading me around

I wonder if she knows Which way is down...

(repeat chorus)
Here I stand--sad & free

I can't cry and I can't see

(same)
Blind man on a canyon's edge of a Panoramic scene

Or maybe I'm a kite That's flying high & random

Dangling a string Or slumped over in a vacant room

Head on a stranger's knee I'm sure back home

They think I've lost my mind.

F Am Bb C
F Am Bb C

(repeat chorus)
Here I stand--sad & free

I can't cry and I can't see

What I've done

God...What have I done

Hello,

The transition in the chords in the 3rd line of the verse seems to be:

Dm G Bb F

I think this is the right chords from listening to the song. The first 2 lines sound correct and everything else fits so far. I'll post other changes if I find them.

Thanks
