Intro -x2-: Bb F Bb F

Verse:
 Bb
Sitting here wasted and wounded
           F
This old piano
        Bb
Trying hard to capture the moment
                F
This morning I don't know
          Am                       Bb
'Cause a bottle of vodka is still lodged in my head
           F
And some blond gave me nightmares
                         Bb
Think she's still in my bed
       Bb                     C                         F
As I dream about movies they won't make of me when I'm dead

Verse:
        Bb
With an ironclad fist
                                F
I wake up, and French kiss the morning
            Bb
While some marching band keepsits own beat
                      F
In my head while we're talking
      Am                         Bb
About all of the things, that I long to believe
       F
About love, the truth, what you mean to me
          Bb
And the truth is
 Bb          C           F   F  C C 
Baby, you're all that I need

Chorus:
         Dm Dm
I wanna lay
     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm  Dm
For tonight
    C         Bb     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               Bb
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   Bb  Bb
And lay you down
Bb      Bb     F
  On a bed of roses

Verse:
          Bb
Well I'm so far away
                           F
Step that I take is on my way home
        Bb
King's ransom in dimes
                                      F
Given each night to see through this payphone
         Am
Still I run out of time
         Bb
Or it's hard to get through
          F
Till the bird on the wire
Flies me back to you
      Bb
I'll just close my eyes, whisper
 Bb     C             F  F C C 
Baby, blind love is true

Chorus:
         Dm Dm
I wanna lay
     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm  Dm
For tonight
    C         Bb     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               Bb
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   Bb  Bb
And lay you down
Bb      Bb     F     C
  On a bed of roses

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

Solo:
    Dm C Bb F -3x-
    Dm C Bb Bb Bb Bb  F

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

Chorus:
         Dm Dm
I wanna lay
     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm  Dm
For tonight
    C         Bb     F
I sleep on a bed of nails
               Bb
Oh, I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is
     Dm  C   Bb  Bb Bb
And lay you down
         Dm Dm
I wanna lay
     C         Bb     F
You down in a bed of roses
       Dm  Dm
For tonight
    C         Bb  F
I sleep on a be...ed of nails!
           Bb
I want to be
          F
Just as close as
     Bb    F
The Holy Ghost is!
 Dm  C   Bb
Lay you down
Bb      Bb     F
    The bed of roses
