And The Band Plays On

Chords relative to capo
[C#m]She hums a song she can't re[A]member
The [C#m]music lives but the words are [Ab7]dead[Ab7sus]
The [C#m]song went out in late No[A]vember
It's [C#m]been 4 days since she's been to [A]bed[B] [A] [B]
[C#m]She's got a tattoo on the back of her [A]neck
[C#m]Wears china red lipstick #[A]3
[C#m]Stands by the jukebox smoking a [A]cigarette
[C#m]Watches the band as she drinks for [A]free[B] [A] [B]
[A]But don't you know every[E]body's got a [B]story
Might be a little better than [A]yours
Have you ever [E]bled for the price of [B]glory
Then what the hell are you livin' [A]for
You sit and to [E]listen to the [B]music
But you don't hear that [A]song
This old [E]world spins a little [B]faster
And the band plays [C#m]on
Everybody stops to watch her move
She laughs just a little at a neon pane
The girls's think she's got somethin' to prove
And all the boys wanna know her name
But the storybooks were wrong again
And the songs on the radio lie
She weeps for who's she been
But nobody hears her cry
She's getting' high back in the alley
Standing' in the pourin' rain
The nights have always been just a little too hard
And don't you know it helps ease the pain
