Better Man

Words & Music:

Eddie Vedder


This is fully transcribed in Guitar World.


D                             E

Waiting, watching the clock.  It's 4 o'clock, it's got to stop.

D                        E

Tell him, take no more.  She practices her speech.

      F               G

As he opens the door, she rolls over.

    F                   G

Pretends to sleep as he looks her over.



D                 A        G               D            A         G

She lies and says she's in love with him.  Can't find a better man

D               A         G             D             A         G

She dreams in color, she dreams in red.  Can't find a better man.

D            A            D            A

Can't find a better man.  Can't find a better man.


Talking to herself, there's no-one else.

"Who needs to know?", she tells herself.

Memories back when she was smooth and strong;

And waited for the world to come along.

Swears she knew it; now, she swears he's gone.




D            A         G

She loved him.........  yeah

D              A        G

She don't want to leave this way

D            A         G

She feeds him.........  yeah

D                    A    G

That's why she'll be back again

D            A         G

Can't find a better man  (can't find a better man)


D  A  G | D  A  G [4x]  D
