Verse 1:

 A
        Down the street the dogs are barkin'
 GA
        And the day it's gettin' dark
 C#mF#m
        When the night begins to fall then
 DE7sus4/BE
        The dogs will lose their bark     

 A
        And the silent night will shatter
 GA
        From the sounds inside my mind
 C#mF#m
        And I'm one too many mornings
 BmE7sus4/BEA
        And a thousand miles       behind

Verse 2:
 A
        And from the crossroads of my doorstep
 GA
        My eyes begin to fade
 C#mF#m
        And I turn back to the room
 DE7sus4/BE
        Where my love and I have laid       

 A
        And I gaze back to the street
 GA
        To the sidewalks and the sign
 C#mF#m
        And I'm just one too many mornings
 BmE7sus4/BEA
        And a thousand miles     behind

Verse 3:
 A
        And it's a restless hungry feeling
 GA
        It does no one no good
 C#mF#m
        And everything I am saying
 DE7sus4/BE
        You can say it just as good      

 A
        Your right from your side
 AAbG
             And I'm right from mine
 C#mF#m
        We're both just one too many mornings
 BmE7sus4/BEA
        And a thousand miles behind   

Coda:

 C#mF#m
        We're both just one  too many mor...nings
 Bm7
        And a thou...sand
