Here's the chord version of this song. 

INTRO: D  Em7  F#m7  Em7
       D  Em7  F#m7  A

VERSE 1:
         D                   Em7
With the sweet drip of every raindrop
F#m7                      Em7
Time brings you closer to me
         D                      Em7
And with each new sign at every train-stop
 F#m7                          Em7           D    Em7  F#m7   A    
Another hour without you is consigned to history
         D                 Em7
And with each tick of my alarm clock
      F#m7                         Em7
I get crazy for the days to get to you
           D                         Em7
When I can hold you and kiss you and have you
           F#m7                    Em7
Instead of staring at some photo like a fool

PRE-CHORUS:
       G                               Em7
But as day turns to night there’s this hopelessness to fight
       G                               A  D/A  A7
When I think that I might not make it through

CHORUS:
          D                G                D
But honey sometimes I just have to say your name
           G                      
To hear it hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same
    Em7                        G
And sometimes when I’m blue, I know just what to do
   A                                A7                    D   
To keep the blues at bay you know I only have to say your name

INTRO

VERSE 2:
        D                       Em7        
So this morning I picked up the paper
       F#m7                   Em7
In the useless descent of the rain
      D                          Em7
While partners in heartbreak the whole world over
F#m7                   Em7
Lie and cheat just the same
        D                  Em7
And the headlines proclaim everything has changed
F#m7                Em7
Love can’t save you now
        D                   Em7
As each little motion of my writswatch
F#m7              Em7
Holds up my faith somehow

PRE-CHORUS:
       G                               Em7
But as day turns to night there’s this hopelessness to fight
       G                               A  D/A  A7
When I think that I might not make it through

CHORUS:
          D                G                D
But honey sometimes I just have to say your name
           G                      Em7
To hear it hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same
    Em7                        G
And sometimes when I’m blue, I know just what to do
   A                                G                     A    D  A
To keep the blues at bay you know I only have to say your name

BRIDGE:
          G              D
When I’ve used up all my patience
          G                                   D
When your letters have been read twenty times through
      F#m7                       G
I can drink all the wine in this place of mine
       Em7                      A                        
But it ain’t no replacement, it ain’t no replacement for 
D  F#m7  Bm7  A  Em7  G  A  D  A7
you.................

CHORUS:
             D                        G        D
'Cause honey sometimes I just have to say your name
           G                      
To hear it hanging in the air, to know it sounds the same
    Em7                        G
And sometimes when I’m blue, I know just what to do
   A                                
To keep the blues at bay you (know I only have to say)
                        A        D      D     
You know I only have to say your name....ooooh

OUTRO:
D   Em7  F#m7   D    Em7  F#m7
 hooo...    Oooh hooo..       You know I
D                          Em7                    F#m7
 Only have to say your name  I only have to say your name
               D                      Em7                 F#m7
I only have to say your name, say your name, say your name,
     D                     Em7     F#m7
Oooh yay yah...ay yah, ooooh ay yah, I only have, only have to
D                       Em7                  F#m7

D                             Em7                F#m7              
 Whoa yah, whoa yah, whoa yah     I only have to 
F#m7                        D
say-ayayay your name, name, name, name, name, name, name, name
Em7                           F#m7              (fade out)
   name, name, name, name Yah yah, yeah yah yah (etc.)
