[F]When the streets are empty late at [A]night
[F]Just the silence fills me with de[A]light, s'alright
[Bb]Rain is falling, [Bbm]trees are still
My [F]mind is racing but my [Dm]heart is as well
It's not [Am]funny,[C] it's a [F]shame

[F]He's the greatest fighter in the [A]world
[F]Got into a brawl over some [A]girl, sweet girl
[Bb]He'll get better, the [Bbm]scars will heal
His [F]eyes will open but his [Dm]heart never will
It's not [Gm]funny,[C] it's a [F]shame

[Dm]There's a funny side to it all
[Bb]Seeing someone else take a fall
[Gm]When it's you it happens to, sending you
[F]Tumbling, tumbling

(Solo - same chords as verse played over the vocal melody (which is played on guitar))

[Bb]Seeing someone else take a fall
[Gm]When it's you it happens to, sending you
[F]Tumbling, tumbling, [Am]sends you tumbling [Dm]on

Such a funny side to it all
[Bb]Take another tumble and fall
[Gm]Everybody's tumbling, tumbling [Am]on [C]

[F]Different strokes for different folks, it's [A]true (so true)
[F]Changes in our lives go right on [A]through and through
[Bb]It gets better as [Bbm]time goes on
But [F]some of us are gonna [Dm]end up alone
It's not [Gm]funny,[C] it's a [F]shame[Dm]

It's a shame
It's a shame...
