C/Bb    Bb    C/Bb

     Bb           Am                     C/Bb   Bb
As time begins to burn itself up on me

        C/Bb      Bb          Am     C/Bb    Bb
And the days are growing very short

C/Bb             Bb           C        Am
People try their hardest to reject me

                                   Dm       D7
In a way their conscience won't be caught

                            G7          Bb
Something's happening to me day by day

                                  Am            Bb
My pebble on the beach is getting washed away

I've given every thing that was mine to give

                  Bb               Am
And now I'll turn around and find

                        C/Bb   Bb   C/Bb   Bb   Am
That there's no time to live

C/Bb   Bb  C/bb   Bb   Am

Second verse:
So often I have seen the wheel of fortune
Spinning for the man who holds the ace
There's many that would change their places for him
But none of them have seen his lonely face
