VERSE:
Bm      E                F#
  I was sitting at a table
Bm            E             F#
  Down at the Steak 'n' Sabre
Bm     E
  With Cain and Abel
    F#    G            Bm                E   F#
The circumstance was a different kind of world
Bm        E                   F#
  We were laughing and drinking
Bm       E                
  The universe was shrinking
      F#        G             Bm                E    F#
I was thinking, man, that's a different kind of world
Bm            E             F#
  Down at the Steak 'n' Sabre
Bm     E  F#        
  Like Trobarianders
G                                               Bm E
Don't you understand that's a different kind of world...

CHORUS:
   Bm C   G                  Bm E   Bm C
...world,  different kind of world, world
G                  Bm E   Bm C  G                  Bm E  Bm C  G
 Different kind of world, world, different kind of world world

(*lead part to chorus at bottom) 


Solo: Bm E F# (4x) listen to how long he plays the F# the 1st time

Bm     E              F#
 I was swimming in Bali
Bm    E            F#
 When I got swallowed
Bm  E            
 By something hollow
        F#    G         Bm                E   F#
We were going down to a different kind of world
Bm          E             F#
 Where they talk like Plato
Bm   E              F#           G          Bm                E    F#
 And sweet potatoes growing all around in a different kind of world
Bm     E                 F#
 Right down in the shallows
Bm       E       F#
 And the wind it blows
          G                               Bm E
Don't you know that's a different kind of world...

CHORUS

Solo: Bm E F# (with some variations and cool bending.
