Verse 1:
 GCG
 When I think of those East End lights
 C
 Muggy nights
 GFC
 The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
 FG
 Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
 FGC
 Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
 Cm
And it's one more beer
 A7
And I don't hear you anymore
 C
We've all gone crazy lately
 C#dimG
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
 D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

Chorus:
 CGAmG
 And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear     
 CGAm
 You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
 GCBm7
You nearly had me roped and tied      
 CC#dim
 Altar-bound, hypnotized
 G
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
 C#dim
You're a butterfly
 C
And butterflies are free to fly
 C#dimGBm7C
 Fly away, high away bye bye
 CBm7AmGF
 Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh        

Intro: (do twice)

Verse 2:
 GCG
 I never realized the passing hours
 C
 Of evening showers
 GFC
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
 FG
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene

 FGC
 Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
 Cm
 It's four o'clock in the morning
 A7
Damn it listen to me good
 C
 I'm sleeping with myself tonight
C#dim (x45650) G
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive
 D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah

Back To Chorus …………………………………………

(Then do Intro Twice Again, then go to Bridge)

Bridge:
 AmG
 And I would have walked head on into the deep end the river
 Em7
 Clinging to your stocks and bonds
 C
Paying your H.P. demands forever
 AmG
 They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
 Em7C
 Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
 Em7C
 Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
 Em7
 Someone saved my life tonight
 CC#dimBm7C
 So save your strength and run the field you play alone          

Back To Chorus Again…………………………………………

(Then go to the ending)

Ending:

 GC
 Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight……………………
