     G     D    Cadd2 D/F#   A    Em    Am

Intro: G - D - Cadd2 (2x)

Verse 1:

G          Cadd2
Kelly is raising her son
G                           Cadd2
His dad left just after the birth
G                    Cadd2
Now she's living on child support checks
Em7                              Cadd2
I guess that's all that man was worth

G                                   Cadd2
She said I just need a man who will love me
G                                   Cadd2
But they all just want one night of sin
G                        Cadd2
I know our life could be better
Em7               Cadd2          D
I just don't know where I should begin

         G     D     Cadd2
She said write me a song
G              D/F#          Cadd2
One that makes all the girls cry
D/F#              G
And the old women swoon
D/F#               Cadd2
At the sound of my tune
Em7                               A
And the hearts of the lonely will fly
Cadd2-D          G
Yeah, they'll fly

Verse 2:

G                 Cadd2
Beth, she sings straight from the heart
G                            Cadd2
She's hidden her tracks very well
G                    Cadd2
But these days she's falling apart
Em7                            Cadd2
And it makes me feel just like hell

G                        Cadd2
She says, boy, you can't imagine my life
G                           Cadd2
The death and the drugs and the pain
G                 Cadd2
And though I keep running
Em7                                   Cadd2
I just can't seem to break from these chains

Chorus 2:

         G     D    Cadd2
She said write me a song
G           D/F#         Cadd2
Fill it all up with good words
D/F#                G
Like brilliant and heavenly
D/F#           Cadd2
Make it sound just like me
Em7                        A             
Just like the first time I love you was heard

(Chorus 1)


Am                    Em7
We're all feeding our lonely
Am               Em7
Like it might go away
Am              Em7
The doors of heaven swing wide
D                                       G
If we just find the right words to say

(Chorus 2)

(Chorus 1)

         G     D    Cadd2
She said write me a song (Repeat until fade)
