 Prog A
 sitting here wasted and wounded at this old piano

trying hard to capture the moment this morning I don't know
             C                F                 D5
'cause a bottle of vodka's still lodged in my head

and some blond gave me nightmares

i think that she's still in my bed
                                                          C
as I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead

              F
with an ironclad fist I wake up and french kiss the morning
              F
while some marching band keeps its own beat in my head while we're 
talking
        C                        F         D5
about all of the things that I long to believe,
        C
about love, the truth and what you mean to me.
                    F                D5     C
and the truth is, baby, you're all that I need.

           F        C         D5      A7
i want to lay you down on a bed of roses
        F        G                 B
for tonite I sleep on a bed of nails
           D5               A7       F  D5    A7
i want to be just as close as the Holy Ghost is
     F   C    D5        
and lay you down on a bed of roses

          F
well I'm so far away
                                      C
each step that I take is on my way home
      F                                        
a king's ransom in dimes I'd give each night

to see through this payphone
          C                        F            
still I run out of time or it's hard to get through
                       C                
till the bird on the wire flies me back to you
                     F                  F         D5       C
i'll just close my eyes and whisper, baby blind love is true

Prog B
 
CHORUS

             F                     G 
where the hotel bar hangover whiskey's gone dry

the barkeeper's wig's crooked
              D5       
and she's giving me the eye
                          C
well i might have said yeah
            C           C           
but I laughed so hard I think I died

Prog A
now as you close your eyes know I'll be thinking about you

while my mistress she calls me to stand in her spotlight again tonite

I won't be alone but you know that don't mean I'm not lonely
          F             C 
i've got nothing to prove
           D5
for it's you that I'd die to defend

Prog C
