Capo 1st

[Intro]  
Dsus4/A  D/A   Dsus4/A  D    D Dsus4 D   D Dsus4 D  

[Verse]
D    Dsus4          D  
Sonny, it's been a long time
D           Dsus4                      D
But I just, I couldn't pick up on the phone
               Em         G                 D
I'm still some miles away  from that kinda courage
             Em          G              D
And I guess finally I preferred to be alone

[Verse]
D              G                     D  
Well it's true, I mighta made a few promises
D                                G            D
And you can be sure, I meant to keep em all along
               Em       G                        D
But something happened,  don't know if I can explain it
                 Em         G               D
Just call me the man whose heart turned to stone

[Chorus]
C                    D             C              D
A thousand people laughing and I could not say a word
F#m                           Em     G                    A
But in the heat of that last summer, I was flying like a bird

[Verse]
D     G                        D  
Sonny, you say you don't recognize me
D                        G                      D
In fact when I knew you,  well I was bearing a beard
               Em     G                   D
But one day I shaved   and looked in the mirror
                Em   G                   D
Decided to come out,  come right out of there

[Verse]
D                     G                 D  
Well me and your mom,  well that was a long night
D                   G              D
Can't say I'm proud, but I ain't ashamed
               Em      G                 D
Don't you believed it,  well I ain't no cave man
              Em     G                         D
We were both willing,  but she lived with the blame

[Chorus]
C                    D             C              D
A thousand people laughing and I could not say a word
F#m                           Em     G                    A
But in the heat of that last summer, I was flying like a bird

[Verse]
             D     G                        D  
So when she called,  you coulda knocked me over
D                                  G                  D
I thought it was a joke, than my laughter started to fade
            Em        G                   D
So I drove down here,  down to this damn prison
                   Em               G                 D
The last thing I expected I see my boy sitting in a cage

[Verse]
D                 G                          D  
So what can I say,  give me a call when you want to
D                                     G             D
You can call me at work, and you can call my place home
                Em            G                     D
I'll find a way out of this, not sure how I'm gonna do it
              Em     G                        D
But you got a father, you're not completely alone

[Chorus]
C                    D             C              D
A thousand people laughing and I could not say a word
F#m                           Em     G                    A
But in the heat of that last summer, I was flying like a bird

[Ending with solo through verse chords]  
D  G  D     D  G  D     Em  G  D      Em  G  D
