Em                              G          D
  It's not the cowboys that are missing anymore
Em                         G        D
  That problem was already old in ninety-four
Em                              G              D
  Don't be offended, this might seem a little wrong
C                      D      G
Where have all the gay guys gone?


Em                          G                  D
  And to the romance when I was fourteen years old
Em                           G              D
  And to my heroes that were dressed up in gold
Em                    G             D
  Only hoping one day I could be so bold
C                  D           G
Where have all the gay guys gone?


                     G                                D
If we are all in the gutter, it doesn't change who we are
                         Am                           Em
'Cause some of us in the gutter are looking up at the stars
   D                 G                                D
If we are all in the gutter, it doesn't change who we are
                         Am                           Em
'Cause some of us in the gutter are looking up at the stars


   D
So tell me
G                             C
Where have all the good guys, where have all the good guys
Em                 D         G
Where have all the good guys gone?
G                             C
Where have all the good guys, where have all the good guys
Em                 D         G
Where have all the good guys gone?


Em                           G               D

  1. I think +3 is the actual key until it gets into the key change, but I’m not sure what happens after that.

  2. Sage Wilcox

    Woah I had always thought the lyrics was ‘good guys’ the whole time not ‘gays guys’
