The World Is A Wonderful Place  Richard Thompson

[Fm]   [F#m]    [Fm]   [F#m]                           
[Fm]Lovers pair off and they [F#m]fall into bed
[F#m]The same old lies [G#m]trip off the [C#m]tongue [C#m/B]
A [G#m]few lonely [A]hearts stand and [D]prop up the [Bm]room
the [G]night is [C]young
Envy the bodies asleep on the floor
Dreaming some comfortable dream
And envy the drunk as he falls through the door
For the world is drunk I see

[C#m]You live and you die
[G#m]there's no reason why
[A]The world is a [G#m]wonderful [C#m]place
[C#m]The poor live in pain
[B]They're sick and insane
[A]Ah, the world is a [G#m]wonderful [C#m]place

[B]How does it feel to be [C#m]nothing
[B]How does it feel to be [A]small
Oh [C#m]pull hard on that wine, It's[G#m] the end of the line
Ah, [F#m]the world is a [B]wonderful [C#m]place

Another year older and nothing to show
Is this what I grew up to be?
Oh you birthday boy here's a pat on the back
YouUre a sight to see

Am I just a clown like the fools gathered here
Am I nothing special at all
If this is called living, IUm folding my hand
IUm sick of the same brick wall
