69 Love Songs
[F]I like your [F/E]twisted point of[Dm] view, Mike[Dm7]
[A#]I like your q[A#/A]uestioning eyebrow[Gm7]s [C]
[F]You've made it [F/E]pretty clear what[Dm] you like[Dm7]
[A#]It's only f[A#/A]air to tell you no[Gm7]w [C]
[Dm]that I leave [Dm7]early in the [A#]morning [A#/A]
[Gm7]and I won't be back till [C]next year[Dsus] [C]
[Dm]I see that [Dm7]kiss-me pucker [A#]forming [A#/A]
[Gm7]but maybe you should plug it with a [C]beer, [Dsus]cause [C]
[F]Papa was a [F/E]rodeo -[Dm] Mama was a rock'n'roll [Dm7]band
I could [F]play guitar and [F/E]rope a steer[A#] before I learned to s[C]tand
[F]Home was anywhere with [F/E]diesel gas -[A#] Love was a trucker's h[F]and
[F]Never stuck around [F/E]long enough for a[A#] one night [A#/A]stand
[Gm7]Before you kiss me you should [F]know
[A#]Papa w[C]as a rodeo[F]
( F )| F/E | Dm | Dm7 | A# | C - Dsus - C |
[F]The light re[F/E]flecting off the[Dm] mirror bal[Dm7]l
[A#]looks like a [A#/A]thousand swirling [Gm7]eyes [C]
[F]They make me[F/E] think I shouldn[Dm]'t be here [Dm7]at all
[A#]You know, eve[A#/A]ry minute someone [Gm7]dies [C]
[Dm]What are we d[Dm7]oing in this [A#]dive bar [A#/A]
[Gm7]How can you live in a pla[C]ce like t[Dsus]his [C]
[Dm]Why don't you[Dm7] just get int[A#]o my car [A#/A]
[Gm7]and I'll take you away I'[C]ll take t[Dsus]hat ki[C]ss now, but
( F )| F/E | Dm | Dm7 | A# | C - Dsus - C |
[Dm]And now it's [Dm7]55 years late[A#]r [A#/A]
[Gm7]We've had the romance of [C]the centu[Dsus]ry [C]
[Dm]After all the[Dm7]se years wres[A#]tling gat[A#/A]ors
[Gm7]I still feel like crying [C]when I th[Dsus]ink of[C] what you said to me
