Hard Luck Stories  Richard Thompson

[G]They say [C]running into you is like [G]running into trouble
You [C]bend my ear and [F]I see double
[C]You’re everybody’s i[G]dea of a waste of [C]time
You still come around ‘cos [G]I used to listen
But [C]I run a steamship I [F]don’t run a mission
[C]Don’t be mistaken in [G]thinking you’re a friend of [C]mine [G]

Those [C]hard luck [F]stories it’s [C]all I ever [F]get from you
[C]Hard luck [F]stories you’re [C]going to drive me [G]out of my [C]mind
[C]Hard luck [F]stories it’s [C]all I ever [F]get from you
[C]Hard luck [F]stories you’re [C]going to drive me [G]out of my [C]mind  [Bb]    [F]   [C]

Well the boss won’t give you change of a penny
Everybody’s got money but you haven’t any
If I cared about you I’d say it was a crying shame
Your wife ran away, she left you on Sunday
She cried when she left you, she was laughing on Monday
She should have known better and never gone and changed her name


Why don’t you grow up, why don’t you settle down
Why don’t you get a job, why don’t you leave town
Even a chicken has to do what it has to do.
You don’t like one thing, you don’t like another
You don’t like anything that looks like bother
Everyone don’t like something, and we all don’t like you
