18 Karat Gold  Johnossi

[D]18 k[A]arat gol[Bm]d wo[G]uldn't fill the hole           [A]
The bleeding hole in her heart, that's made from[A] cicumstances at home
Because they kept pulling her hair, and [A]so it choked her words
She don't sleep at nig[A]ht, afraid to turn out the light
And she's home     [D]              [A]    [Bm]
D A Bm x2
[G]    [A]                                 

I thought 18 kar[A]at gold would save a lonely soul
But she don't sleep at night,[A] afraid to turn out the light
Cause they kept pulling her hair,[A] wouldn't leave her alone
But if only I could read h[A]er mind and release that stone


In her heart where the sadness gr[Bm]ows, I'd operate with this knife
And cut a big fat[Bm] giant hole, to fill with gold and light


But there's an endless ba[F]ttle to be won          [Am]        [Dm]
And me I ain't a man with an e[F]ducated mind            [Am]           [Dm]
And so[Dm]on, you won't have the strength to carry on
So [Bm]you scream about it in the night


Oh, in the night ...[D]           [A]       [Bm]
In the night[D] ...       [A]       [Bm]
Oh, in the night ..[D].          [A]       [Bm]     [G]    [A]


My 18 k[D]arat[A] gold, i[Bm]t fi[G]lls a dirty hole          [A]
A [A]dirty bleeding hole in my heart, you people think it's made from circumstances at home
Well[A] if someone ever should be pulling your hair, then I guess you should leave them alone
A[G]nd now you want me to read your [A]mind and release that stone


That stone in your heart whe[Em]re the sadness grows. You know I, I'[Bm]d operate with this knife
And cut a big fat [Bm]giant hole, to fill with gold and light


But there's[F] an endless battle to be won [Am]                 [Dm]
And me I ain't a man with an e[F]ducated mind            [Am]           [Dm]
And so[Dm]on, you won't have the strength to carry on
And so yo[F]u scream about it in the n[Am]ight                    [Dm]


The[Dm]re's an endless battle to b[Am]e won            [Dm]
And me I ain't a man with an e[F]ducated mind            [Am]           [Dm]
[F]You won't have the strength to carr[Am]y on                    [Dm]
So [Bm]you scream about it in the night

Oh, In the night ...[D]           [A]       [Bm]
In the night[D] ...       [A]       [Bm]
In the night[D] ...       [A]       [Bm]

D A Bm ...
