dont blame it on me   Association







                             "Don't Blame It On Me"
                           (D. Addrisi - D. Addrisi)

The B-side of "Cherish", also recorded around the same time by the Vogues as
"Don't Blame The Rain" (B-side of "Please Mr. Sun").  I transcribed it in G
even though it's about 3/4 tone sharp and sounds almost in A-flat.

	G            Gsus4           G           Gsus4
	Go blame the rain for your cloudburst of teardrops
	G         Gsus4           G                    C
	Blame the wind, say how lonely and cold it can be
	Cm      D7          G
	   You asked to be free
	                  Cm
	Don't blame it on me

Verse 2:

	Go blame the night for the darkness descending
	Blame the wind, say it laughs at you now that you're free
	That's how you want it to be
	Don't blame it on me

Chorus:

	 G               C/G
	Now your life is empty
	D7/G              G
	And only tears remain
	      G                   C/G
	Your high hopes turned to heartaches
	       C               D7sus4   D7
	Your freedom turned to chains

[repeat verse 1]

[repeat chorus]

Verse 3:

	Go blame rain and the wind and the darkness
	Blame the world for the way things have turned out to be
	Blame whatever you please
	     Cm
	But don't...
	D7                G
	Don't blame it on me
