--Verse 1--
[A]The gutter may [E]profess its love,
[A]Then follow it with [C#m]hesitati[D]on,
[A]But there are just so [C#m]many of [E]you out there for rent[D] [E]
[A]A stronger girl would [E]shake this off in flight,
[A]And never give it [C#m]more than a [D]frowning hour,
[A]But you have let your [C#m]heart decide, [E]loss has conquered you,
--Chorus--
[D]You've won [E]one too many [D]fights,
Wearing [E]many hats every time,
[D]But you [E]wont win here ton[A]ight,[D] [E]
--Verse 2--
Same chords as Verse 1
You've made it through the direst of straits alright,
Can you help it if plain love now seems less interesting?
You haven't changed an ounce in my eyes,
And I cannot lecture you,
And does anything I say seem relevant at all?
You've been at the helm since you were just five,
While I cannot claim to be more than a passenger,
--Chorus--
[D]But, you've [E]won one too many [D]fights,
Wearing [E]all of your clothes at the [D]same time,
Let the [E]good times end [F#m]tonight,
Oh [G]girl, sail her, don't [D]sink her, this [E]time

Verse chords
--Middle Part--
[F#m]Just a [G]moment or two from [F#m]now,
Not a [G]mind will retain even [F#m]a trace,
Of the [G]thoughts that I struggled to [D]tell
And how [E]our stack of cards just fell,
--Verse 3--
Same chords as Verse 1
So settle this once and for all,
The light no longer shows the cracks around my door,
And I have no lantern to light your way home tonight,
--Chors--
Same chords as previous chorus
You are not some saint who's above,
Giving someone a stroll through the flowers,
You've got so much more to dream of,
Oh girl, sail her, don't sink her,
This time,
This time,
This time.
End on D
