Hm             F#7               Hm F#7 Hm


Friday left me fumblin' with the blues


         Hm7     A7       G7             F#7*


And it's hard to win when you always lose


            Hm7       A7          G7


Because the nightspots spend your spirit


         Hm7*               E7


beat your head against the wall


Hm                F#7          Hm F#7 Hm


two dead-ends you still got to choose











             Hm        F#7               Hm F#7 Hm


You know the bartenders they all know my name


         Hm7     A7       G7             F#7*


and they catch me when I'm pulling up lame


          Hm7  A7       G7     F#7*    Hm7*       E7


and I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyester shaking my head


Hm               F#7         Hm F#7 Hm


when I should be living clean in stead











             Hm               F#7            Hm F#7 Hm


You know the ladies I've been seeing off and on


          Hm7        A7   G7           F#7*


well they spend your love then they're gone


    Hm7      A7     G7     F#7*    Hm7*       E7


you can't be loving someone who is savage and cruel


Hm        F#7                Hm     F#7      Hm


Take your love and then they leave on out of town... No they do...

....


When I'm falling in love, It's such a breeze


but it's standing up that's so hard for me


I wanna sqeeze you but I'm scared to death I'll break your back instead


You know your perfume, well it won't let me be





You know the bartenders they all know my name


and they'll catch me when I'm pulling up lame


and I'm a pool-shooting-shimmy-shyster shaking my head


when I should be living clean in stead





so come on baby, let your love light shine


gotta bury me inside of your fire


cause your eyes are enough to blind me


you're like a-looking at the sun


you gotta whisper tell me I'm the one


come on and whisper tell me I'm the one


gotta whisper tell me I'm the one


come on and whisper tell me I'm the one
