Intro: G

G
Well, I didn't know it would come to this
G
But that's what happens when you're on your own
            Am             C                G
And you're alright letting nice things go


G
Well, I pawned the earrings that you gave me
G
Gold and made of flowers dangling
       Am     C                    G     
And I almost cried as I sold them all
G                                Em
I don't mind living on bread and oranges, no no
       G               Em
But I gotta get to and from where I come
         Am                  C
And it's gonna take money to go
   G      D     Am     C    G
Oh no, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh, 


G 
In the name of higher consciousness
          Em              
I let the best man I knew go
            G                   Em
'Cause it's nice to love and be loved
                   Am               C
But it's better to know all you can know
            G                   Em
I said it's nice to love and be loved
               Am            C
But I'd rather know what God knows
  G      D     Am      C       G
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no,


D     Em      C    G
I can do this once more
Em          C
No man can keep me together
       G        C          D
Been broken since I was born


      G
Well, I didn't know it would come to this

But that's what happens when you're on your own
           Am               C              G
And you're alright letting nice things go
