      G          G/D              C              G
Six rain ridden summers, and he still had an eye---- for me,
      C             G                       D4
He kissed me each evening, and told me he'd die for me,
      D      Em7     D/F#     G              C          G
And then he...   ran off the road, full of whisky and irony,
G           D                     C          Cadd9
He always meant what he said!  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |


   G          G/D       C             G
So I took to whisky, so I could re - call...
         C            G                       D4
...The taste of his mouth on my mouth, that's all,
    D  Em7      D/F#   G            C             G
And I tried the same trick with a truck, but it stalled,
      G          D4    D    C  (C/B)(C/A)  G     (G/F#) 
The engine was better off dead!         |  /   /   /  |


Em7     G/B     Cadd9            (C/D)  G
    Oh, how the nights are long,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7     G/B     Cadd9           (C/D) G
    Oh, how the nights are long,
        (G)  (G/A)(G/B)  D4   D   C     (C/B)(C/A)
But the sun's com - in' over the hill!

   G           D4        Cadd9        (C)(C/B)(C/G)
|  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /___/    /   /  |


     G                   G/D         C            (C/D)  G
The taste never left me,      and I don't think it will,
         C             G             (G/A) (G/B)  D4
And it caused me to supplement whisk - y   with pills,
      D          Em7   D/F#   G        C                 G
But there was something in - side that I couldn't kill,
       G           D4          D       C         Cadd9
Be - lieve me, I really did.. try!  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |


             G             G/D                   C              (C/D)   G
And there's some say...you get what you deserve,    but they're wrong,
                C                G            (G/A)(G/B) D4
Sometimes, you get what you're given, and then it's all gone,
     D       Em7   D/F# G                C             G
And you are lucky,  if you are suff - iciently strong,
               D4   D      C  (C/B)(C/A)   G   (G/F#)
To daily de - cide not to die!          |  /  /   /  |


Em7     G/B     Cadd9            (C/D)  G
    Oh, how the nights are long,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7     G/B     Cadd9           (C/D) G
    Oh, how the nights are long,
        (G)  (G/A)(G/B)  D4   D   C    (C/B)(C/A) G
But the sun's com - in' over the hill!

   G                G/D         C                   G
I can't say there's many things I wouldn't change,
             C         G                            D4
There are better days gone than those that remain,
 D  Em7    D/F#  G           C                 G
But  I can find joy in the sound of the rain,
     G           D4   D       Cadd9   (C) (C/B)(C/A)
You have to find joy where you can!  |  /   /   /  |


Em7     G/B     Cadd9            (C/D)  G
    Oh, how the nights are long,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7     G/B     Cadd9           (C/D) G
    Oh, how the nights are long,

But the sun's com - in' over the hill!           |  /  /   /   |


Em7     G/B     Cadd9            (C/D)  G
    Oh, how the nights are long,

    Oh, how the nights are long,

But the sun's com - in' over the hill!

      C           D4   D    G     D4          Cadd9
The sun's comin' over the hill!  | /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |
