Verse:
 BbBb chord
Sitting here wasted and wounded
           FF chord
This old piano
        BbBb chord
Trying hard to capture the moment
                FF chord
This morning I don't know
          AmAm chord                       BbBb chord
'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head
           FF chord
And some blond gave me nightmares
                         BbBb chord
Think she's still in my bed
       BbBb chord                     CC chord                         FF chord
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead
 
Verse:
        BbBb chord
With an ironclad fist
                                FF chord
I wake up, and French kiss the morning
            BbBb chord
While some marching band keepsits own beat
                      FF chord
In my head while we're talking
      AmAm chord                         BbBb chord
About all of the things, that I long to believe
       FF chord
About love, the truth, what you mean to me
          BbBb chord
And the truth is
 BbBb chord          CC chord           FF chord   FF chord  CC chord CC chord 
Baby, you're all that I need
 
Chorus:
         DmDm chord DmDm chord
I wanna lay
     CC chord         BbBb chord     FF chord
You down in a bed of roses
       DmDm chord  DmDm chord
For tonight
    CC chord         BbBb chord     FF chord
I sleep on a bed of nails
               BbBb chord
Oh, I want to be
          FF chord
Just as close as
     BbBb chord    FF chord
The Holy Ghost is
     DmDm chord  CC chord   BbBb chord  BbBb chord
And lay you down
BbBb chord      BbBb chord     FF chord
  On a bed of roses
 
Verse:
          BbBb chord
Well I'm so far away
                           FF chord
Step that I take is on my way home
        BbBb chord
King's ransom in dimes
                                      FF chord
Given each night to see through this payphone
         AmAm chord
Still I run out of time
         BbBb chord
Or it's hard to get through
          FF chord
Till the bird on the wire
Flies me back to you
      BbBb chord
I'll just close my eyes, whisper
 BbBb chord     CC chord             FF chord  FF chord CC chord CC chord 
Baby, blind love is true
 
Chorus:
         DmDm chord DmDm chord

Bridge:
           BbBb chord
Well this hotel bar hangover
  CC chord                        FF chord
Whiskey's gone dry the barkeeper's wig's crooked
And she's giving me the eye
   BbBb chord
I might have said yeah
       BbBb chord             CC chord          FF chord  FF chord CC chord   CC chord 
But I laughed so hard I think I died, uh yeah!...

Verse:
        BbBb chord
Now as you close your eyes
                        FF chord
Know I'll be thinking about you
          BbBb chord
While my mistress she calls me
                         FF chord
To stand in her spotlight again
           BbBb chord
tonight, I won't be alone
                                      FF chord
But you know that don't mean I'm not lonely
          DmDm chord          CC chord             BbBb chord
I've got nothing to prove for it's you
          BbBb chord       FF chord   CC chord
That I'd die to defend
