Laura  Billy Joel

Intro: Bb Ab Gb Eb
[Bb]Laura calls me in the middle of t[Gm]he night[C7/G]
[C7]Passes on her [Ebm7] painful information
[Bb]Then these careless fingers, t[Bb/A]hey get caught in her v[Gm]ice[C7/G]
[C7]Til they're bleeding on my coffee[F#7] table
[B7]Living alone isn't all tha[F7]t it's cracked up to b[Gm]e
[F#7]Oh whoa whoa
[B7]I'm on her side, why does [F7]she push the poison on [Gm]me?
F#7 B* Bb
Oh whoa whoa whoa whoa
(*First chorus only)
[Bb]Laura has a [Gm]very hard time[C7/G]
[C7]All her life has[Ebm7] been one long disaster
[Bb]Then she tells me she [Bb/A]suddenly believes she's seen a[Gm] very good sign[C7/G]
[C7]She'll be taking some [F#7]aggressive action
[B7]I fight her wars while she's [F7]slamming her doors in my f[Gm]ace
[F#7]Oh whoa whoa
[B7]Failure to break was the [F7]only mistake that she [Gm]made
[F#7]Oh whoa w[Bb]hoa
[Db]Here I am feeling like a f**king [Eb7]fool
[Ebdim/A]Do I react the way exac[Ab]tly she intends me [Db]to?
[Db]Every time I think I'm off the[Db] ho[/F]ok she makes me lose my [Eb7]cool
I'm her machine an[Ebdim/A]d she can punch all the[Ab] keys
And she can push any[Ebdim/A] button I was programme[F]d through
[Bb]Laura calls me when she [Gm]needs a good fix[C7/G]
[C7]All her questions [Ebm7]will get sympathetic
[Bb]Answers I should [Bb/A]be so immunized to all of her[Gm] tricks[C7/G]
[C7]She's surviving on[F#7] her second chances
[B7]Sometimes I feel like this [F7]Godfather deal is all [Gm]wrong
[B7]How can she hold an [F7]umbilical chord for so [Gm]long?
*Instrumental Break*
[Db] [Eb7] [Edim/A] [Ab] [Db]  
[Db]I've done everything I can what else am I supposed to [Eb7]do
I'm her machine and [Ebdim/A]she can punch all the [Ab]keys
And she can push any [Ebdim/A]button I was programme[F]d through
[Bb]Laura loves me even [Gm]if I don't care[C7/G]
[C7]That's my problem [Ebm7]that's her sacred abso[Bb]lution
Bb/A Gm C7/g
If she had to she would put herself in my chair
[C7]Even though I [F#7]faced electrocution
[B7]She always says I'm the [F7]best friend that she's ever [Gm]had
[B7]How do you hang up on [F7]someone who needs you that [Gm]bad?
