Intro/Chorus:
                       C
This is the story of a man

                          E           E*
Who took for granted everything he had

                           Am
And how he let it all just slip away

           F~
Never to return again

(Note that the E* is just a quick hammer-on on the 2nd fret of the G-string)


Verse I:
                               C
Now twenty years have come and gone

                             Am
And still he wonders what he did so wrong

                        F
And how that he can win back her heart

                         G
And finally step outside of the dark


                          C
He buys fresh roses every day

                    C/B    Am
Her favorite flower so she used to say

                              F
And now the memories all that he has left

                              G
And I'm afraid he'll drink himself to death


Chorus:

                       C
This is the story of a man

                          E
Who took for granted everything he had

                           Am
And how he let it all just slip away

           F
Never to return again

C    E
Ooh

Am   F~
Ooh

Verse II:

                                C
It's clear she's moved on long ago

                            Am
But he still clings on to a distant hope

                            F
That she’ll come and make a happy home

                                G
For now it's him and the bottle all alone

                                C
Sometimes you'll see him in the yard

              C/B    Am
A wounded man with a desperate heart

                            F
He keeps the hedges trimmed nice and neat

                              G
To keep them the way that the used to be


Chorus:

                       C
This is the story of a man

                          E
Who took for granted everything he had

                           Am
And how he let it all just slip away

           F
Never to return again

C    E
Ooh

Am   F~
Ooh


Outro:
                            C
A single dress hangs on its own

                            Am
The scent of perfume all he has to hold

                      F
A wasted life waiting on a dream

                               G
Hoping for things the way they used to be

                       C
This is the story of a man

                          E
Who took for granted everything he had

                           Am
And how he let it all just slip away

           F
Never to return again

End on: C*
