Am Em D Am

C Dm Am


          Am
There’s a sacrifice you make
          Em
There are people along the way
             Dm                         Am
When there’s nowhere to run and there’s nowhere to stay
        Am
And the wheels still move
    Em
But won’t slow down
Dm                               Am
Even when you’re spinning in the same soft ground
              Am
And there’s a tear in her eye
              Em
Because she’s known you too long
        Dm                             Am
And she can’t tell the singer from the whorehouse song

         Am
When the well runs dry
        C
There’s nothing left to say
     Dm                      Am
Just throw up your hands and wail all day
    Am
And everything’s fair
              C
And you don’t like it that way
Dm
Something has to die
         Am
When the well runs dry

          Am
There’s a dancer I used to get
   Em
By giving her cigarettes
    Dm                          Am
She told me that I hadn’t quite hurt enough yet
     Am
So I let her do me wrong
    Em
But not for very long
       Dm                          Am
Then I put her in the mirror and I put her in a song

         Am
When the well runs dry
        C
There’s nothing left to say
Dm                      Am
Throw up your hands and wail all day
    Am
And everything’s fair
              C
And you don’t like it that way
Dm
Something has to die
         Am
When the well runs dry

C            Dm              Am
Sitting here at the top your will is getting weak
C          Dm                Am
You let my mind get fattened up
C       Dm          Am
Now I’m quiet and I ain’t supposed to speak
C          Dm                 Em
I’ll speak up when I’ve had enough

  Am
A singer we used to know
   Em
He let himself go
       Dm              Am
Played 15 minutes of a sold out show
    Am
And everybody laughed
       Em
In the aftermath
       Dm
And he never came back
      Am
No he never came back

         Am
When the well runs dry
        C
There’s nothing left to say
Dm                      Am
Throw up your hands and wail all day
    Am
And everything’s fair
              C
And you don’t like it that way
Dm
Something has to die
         Am
When the well runs dry

Am Em Dm Am

C Dm Am
