[Bb]Oooo Let us [F]down
V2:
In [Bb]patches of pink c[F]louds, Thick smoke/
It comes [Bb]rising off the [F]hillside slopes
Down here in t[A]his n[Bb]eighbourhood/ It's just the dumps
With cars iced up, perfect/ for writing

V3: (Chords the same, essentially)
Instead of praying I tell god/ these jokes he must
Be tired of himself so much he must be more/ Than disappointed Christmas
comes we eat alone/ A pretty smile surrounds a pretty girl who
Takes your order she yells/ it and cries alone in/
The backroom once in a while until it stops/ Then she smiles
Chorus 3:
So let her down easy if you must/ But let her down easy
Some of us are strong/ But the rest of us are weak
And go it alone/ So let us down easy if you must
But let us down easy, Lord/Let us down easy lord,
Outro:
[F](Let us down/ Let us down/Let us down,[Bb] Easy) (x a ton of times)
End on F
