[Intro]
G,Em,D,Cadd9

[Verse 1]
            G                                      Em
She’s got a four leaf clover on a cigarette in her mouth
                     D
and time is ticking out
                   Cadd9
her luck is running out
              G                                         Em
She’s got his promise ring in the bottom of her bedside drawer
                        D
and she still wants him more
                    Cadd9
sprawled out on the floor
                               
and tears are running down her
D
face the fact that it’s never gonna work out
Cadd9
mama says he’s not up to snuff
D
she looks up and asks god if he’ll give them
Cadd9
a chance but he never does

[Chorus]
       G
And it acts like clockwork
    Em                   D
the midnight heartache’s right on time
       G
and it acts like clockwork
    Em                  D
the regular breakdown’s half past nine
        Cadd9
and you tell them that you’re fine

[Verse 2]          
           G                                               Em
he’s got a chip on his shoulder and he can’t hold down his pride
                    D
but he’s still sick inside
                       Cadd9
tired of fighting this battle every day and every 
D
night after night he stays up and stays out
Cadd9
Daddy says he’s not good enough
       D
and he looks up and asks god if he’ll give him 
  Cadd9
a chance but he never does

[Chorus]
       G
And it acts like clockwork
    Em                   D
the midnight heartache’s right on time
       G
and it acts like clockwork
    Em                  D
the regular breakdown’s half past nine
        Cadd9
and you tell them that you’re fine

[Bridge]
       Am                  C
So you find every clock in town
    C (slide to third fret) G
and break them all 
 Am                  C         C (slide to 3rd fret)
collect the ones on bedside tables 
    G                Em
and rip them off the wall
Am              C      C (slide to 3rd fret)
smash them into pieces
G            Em
piled on the street
      Cadd9
until time stops ticking

[Chorus]
       G
And it acts like clockwork
    Em                   D
the midnight heartache’s right on time
       G
and it acts like clockwork
    Em                  D
the regular breakdown’s half past nine
       
[Chorus]
      G
And it acts like clockwork
    Em                   D
the midnight heartache’s right on time
       G
and it acts like clockwork
    Em                  D
the regular breakdown’s half past nine

[Less strumming]
        Cadd9
and you tell them that you’re fine
        Cadd9
and you tell them that you’re fine
        Cadd9
Yeah you tell them that you’re fine
