††† C - Em - F - G†† - C

 

††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†††††† - C††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

2. ††††Turning on my pillow, ††††††††thinking kind of strange,

Gm††††††††† †††††††††††A7††††††††††††††††††† Dm††††† - G

††† the color is of midnight in this room.

F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††† F

††† The cars outside are coughing and itís kinda hard to sleep,

†††††††††††††††††††††† Em††††††††††††††† Am†††††††††††††††††††††† G

†† and thereís neon out the window, not the moon.

 

††††††††††††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††† G

And it was just an any old kind of day,

†††††† C††††††††††† Em††††††† ††††F

the kind that comes and slips away,

C†††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††Em††††††††††† †††††Dm†††† - G

††† the kind that fills up easy my lifeís time.

†† †††††F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

The night brought any old kind of dark,

†††† C†††††††††† Em††††† F

I heard the ticking of my heart.

††††††††††† C††††† ††††Em††††† ††Dm††† ††††††††††G††††††† C

Then why am I thinking somethingís left behind ?

 

†† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††G††††††††††††† C††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

2. ††††††I whistled round today and I skipped a footloose jig

†††††††††††††† Gm††††††††††††††† A7†††††††††† †††††Dm†††† - G

††† in the hurdy-gurdy music of the street.

††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††† C†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

††† I looked up past those rooftops, and saw that cloudless sky,

††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††††† F †††††††Em††††††††††††††††† F

††† but I keep on asking why my life is passing by,

†††††††††††††† ††Em†††††††††††††††††† F

††† and Iím left up high and dry.

††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††† Em†††††††††††††††††††† F

††† But it ainít no good to cry, so I shrug my useless sigh- - -

††† ††††††††††Am††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††C

††† and I trust to things that other days will meet.

3. ††††The night has had it's laughing †††††when street lights blind the stars,

Gm†††††††††††††† ††††††††††††A7††††††††††††††† †††Dm†††† - G

††† now itís shedding rain to sing its sorrow,†††††††† sorrow.

††† †††††††F†††††††††††††††††† †††G†††††††††† †††††C†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††F

††† Itís time for me to sleep and to rest these thoughts away,

††††††††† †††††††††††††††††Em†††††††††† †††F†††††† †††††††Em††††††††††††††† ††††††F

††† thereís gonna be another day when things will go my way,

††††††††††† †††††††††††Em†††††††††††††† ††††F†††††† ††††††††††††††Em†††††††††††††††† †††F

††† and thereís other things to say, and thereís other songs to play - - -

†††††††††††††† ††††††††††††Am††††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††††††††††† ††C

††† and thereíll be time enough for thinking come tomorrow.

And it was just an any old kind of day,

†††††† C††††††††††† Em††††††††††††† F

the kind that comes and slips away,

C†††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††Em†††††††††††††††† Dm†††† - G

††† the kind that fills up easy my lifeís time.

†††††††† F†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

The night brought any old kind of dark,

†††† C†††††††††† Em††††† F

I heard the ticking of my heart.

††††††††† ††C††††††††† Em††††††† Dm†††††††††††††† G††††††† C

Then why am I thinking somethingís left behind ?
