Their home has run out of space[F/G] [G/A] [D]

Won't you come along, dear?[/G]
Won't you[/A] come along?[D]
VERSE 2:
Words that are spoke alone
Phrases you will never hear
Empty rooms and a telephone
That I will never use, never fear
I am all alone, dear
I am all alone

VERSE 3:
My dogs come sit next to me
A pack of dogs and cigarettes
My only friends speak no words to me
But they look at me and they don't forget
That a boy's best friend
/D N.C.
Is his mother or whatever has become his pet
