Death of a single man (B.Paisley)


E   G#m7   A7   B7  

     E   G#m7    F#m    B
Remember when we got the news
    E          C#7    F#m   B    
Confirming our worst fears

     E      Fdim            A   Am
I said he wouldn’t make it six months

     E           B     E    B
And others gave him a year

          G#m7   F#m    B
And sure enough last Saturday

    E         C#7  F#m   B
We paid our last respects

     E      Fdim           A    Am
He left us here still in this life

        E      B        E         G#m
And he’s gone on to the next

 A        Am     G#
I’d never seen him wear a tie

        C#m                F#              G#
But he looked so natural, almost lifelike

A                       Am     G#
The preacher spoke, his mother cried
C#m                         F#           B
When he said “Son, you may now kiss the bride”

E          G#m7    F#m           B
Everyone cheered, I thought how odd

E        C#7     F#m   B  
I didn’t understand


E             Fdim              A   Am
Why with champagne and cake we celebrate

E                B     E
The death of a single man

          G#m7   F#m         B
So many flowers, he was so loved

E     C#7     F#m   B  
Prior to the bride
  E             Fdim       A     Am      
As a matter of fact ,the maid of honor 

E                B     E
should be disqualified

  A         Am         G#
To all his friends, it’s a wake-up call

If it happened to him

          F#             G#
It can happen to us all

 A       Am           G#
Nothing says it’s over man

 C#m              F#   B
Like a bad 80’s cover band


E      Fdim         A       Am
How can we dance to My Sharona

E                               B     E
At the death of a single man

E        G#m7       F#m        B
He was so young, so full of dreams

E        C#7            F#m   B
Before the day he fell

E      Fdim            A     Am
Now he’s gone on to a better place

E        B     E
Or possibly to hell

  A       Am      G#
Now here we are, seems so unfair

F#                           G#
It’s poker night and there’s one empty chair

 A       Am     G#
So many things we’re gonna miss

C#m                       F#             B
His happy smile and that great laugh of his

E        G#m7    F#m        B
I think of him in the afterwife, life

E                C#7    F#m   B
I guess all good things must end


E               Fdim            A     Am
So with Jack and Coke, we’ll make a toast

E                    B     E
To the death of a single man
