Oh [G]no, [G/F#]dont, [G/F]say those [E7]same idle [Am]lies;

Wont buy no [D]more.[B7] [Em] [D]

But the [G]truth must be said,
And [Asus4]you ain't [A]heard e-[D]nough.[B7] [Em] [D]
Chorus 1:
Oh, it was [Am]not so long a-[C]go,,
Since you [Am]wandered out of [C]here.
To be-[Em]come a silver [D]model of a [Am]city on the [C]air.
So dont [A]choke me with your [C]lies,
Because this [Am]man has open [C]eyes;
And I can [G]see..[G/F#].
[G] I can [E7]see, I can [Am]tell. [G7]Ooh, [C]ooh, ooh.

All those [D]sweet friends and [C]lovers.
I've, I've [B]had e-[Em]nough;
All those [D]lonely rooms and [C]blank faces.
