He doesn't know who Jesus was, or what praying is.

C G D C G A

How can he be saved from the eternal grave?

 

[VERSE 2]

Surrounded by his friends, he sits so silently and unaware of anything.

Playing poxy pinball, picks his nose and smiles,

Pokes his tongue at everything

I believe in love, but how can men who've never

Seen light be enlightened?

Only if he's cured will his spirit future level ever heighten.

 

[Repeat CHORUS]

And Tommy doesn't know what day it is.

He doesn't know who Jesus was or what praying is.

How can he be saved from the eternal grave?

Gm * Fmaj7add9 *

Tommy, can you hear me? Tommy, can you hear me?

Edim7 * Eb/G *

Tommy, can you hear me? Tommy, can you hear me?

G13sus4 * Eb/G *

Tommy, can you hear me? Can you hear me?
