Verse 1:

        D[A]own the street the dogs are barkin'
        And the d[G]ay it's gettin' d[A]ark
        When the[C#m] night begins to [F#m]fall then
        The d[D]ogs will lose thei[E7sus4/B]r bark    [E]

        And the s[A]ilent night will shatter
        From the so[G]unds inside my m[A]ind
        And I'm [C#m]one too many [F#m]mornings
        And a t[Bm]housand[E7sus4/B] miles    [E]   beh[A]ind
Verse 2:
        A[A]nd from the crossroads of my doorstep
        My e[G]yes begin to fa[A]de
        And [C#m]I turn back to the [F#m]room
        Where my lo[D]ve and I have [E7sus4/B]laid      [E]

        And I ga[A]ze back to the street
        To the si[G]dewalks and the s[A]ign
        And I'm [C#m]just one too many mo[F#m]rnings
        And a [Bm]thousand[E7sus4/B] miles    [E] behi[A]nd

Verse 3:
        An[A]d it's a restless hungry feeling
        It d[G]oes no one no go[A]od
        And [C#m]everything I am[F#m] saying
        You can s[D]ay it just as[E7sus4/B] good     [E]

        Y[A]our right from your side
        [A]  [Ab]   [G]And I'm right from mine
        We're bo[C#m]th just one too many[F#m] mornings
        And a [Bm]thousand[E7sus4/B] miles beh[E]ind  [A]

        We're both just [C#m]one  too many[F#m] mor...nings
        And a t[Bm7]hou...sand
