'Cause no one's tried to give you what you need
       A        F#7      Bm         G
So lay all your troubles down, I am with you now


Verse 2 (acoustic strums along):
    D
Somebody outta take you in, try to make you love again
G

 Never once do you think that they would lie when they're holdin' you

From what I've seen, you're just one more hand me down
Cause no one's tried to give you what you need

Ah yeah, you're just one more hand me down
And all these nights won't give you what you need
So lay all your burdons, down....on me
