Black Dog On My Shoulder  Manic Street Preachers

[A]There's a black dog on my shoulder again[Em7]
[G]Licking my neck and saying she's my friend[A]
[A]Soltitude the one thing that I really miss[Em7]
[G]Guess my life is a compromise[A]
There's a bl[Em]ack dog on my [Em7]shoulder again[G] [A]
I'm [F#m]playing with it[F#m7], but it's gone to my[A] head[B]
Like carli[Em]to's way there are no e[Em7]xit signs[G] [A]
[D]Freeze me there until I'm[G] numb
[D]My mouth is so d[G]ry
[D]my eyes are shut[G] tight
There's a bl[Em]ack dog [Em7]a comi[G]ng toni[A]ght
[D]Black dogs a comi[G]ng tonight[D] [G]
[Em]    [G]   [A]  [A]My dilemma, but not my choice[Em7]
[G]Winston Churchill can you hear my voice[A]
[A]Melodrama there in my kitchen sink[Em7]
[G]Double vision the way it is[A]
[Em]Am I coming home[Em7] to you again[G] [A]
Or [F#m]am I stu[F#m7]pid ju[A]st by d[B]esign
Does it ma[Em]tter if you really[Em7] ever kn[G]ow[A]
[D]This black dog is out of[G] control
[D]My mouth is so d[G]ry
[D]my eyes are shut[G] tight
There's a b[Em]lack dog a coming[Em7] tonig[G]ht[A]
[D]Black dogs a comi[G]ng tonight[D] [G]
[Em]    [G]   [A]  A  Em7  G A             [X2]

Or [F#m]am I stu[F#m7]pid jus[A]t by d[B]esign
Does it ma[Em]tter if you really[Em7] ever kn[G]ow[A]
[D]This black dog is out of[G] control
[D]My mouth is so d[G]ry
[D]my eyes are shut[G] tight

MY DILEMMA BUT NOT MY CHOICE
WINSTON CHURCHILL CAN YOU HEAR MY VOICE
MELODRAMA THERE IN MY KITCHEN SINK
DOUBLE VISION THE WAY IT IS
[CBORUS] 
AM I COMING HOME TO YOU AGAIN
OR AM I STUPID JUST BY DESIGN
DOES IT MATTER IF YOU REALLY EVER KNOW
THIS BLACK DOG IS OUT OF CONTROL
MY MOUTH IS SO DRY
MY EYES AGE SHUT TIGHT
THERE'S A BLACK DOG A COMING TONIGHT
BLACK DOG'S A COMING TONIGHT
[CBORUS] 
AM I COMING HOME TO YOU AGAIN
OR AM I STUPID JUST BY DESIGN
DOES IT MATTER IF YOU REALLY EVER KNOW
THIS BLACK DOG IS OUT OF CONTROL
