Chord Reference (i've simplified some of the chords for ease of use):

   Dm   C   Bb  F   Bb7  Gm   Am   A7   G#   Cm  C#M7  G   D   Em6


Dm   C        Bb           F
I'll fake it through the day

          Bb7                      Gm
With some help from Johnny Walker Red

          F      Am   C          Bb
Send the poison rain down the drain

   F                         A7
To put bad thoughts in my head


Dm       C        Bb      F
Your two tickets torn in half

       Bb7               Gm
And a lot of nothing to do

       F    Am  Bb   F     G
Do you miss me, Miss Misery

          Bb      F
Like you say you do?


G#           Cm
A man in the park

         F           C#M7
Read the lines in my hand

Told me I'm strong

Hardly ever wrong I said man you mean


Dm      C          Bb      F   
You had plans for both of us

       Bb7                    Gm
That involved a trip out of town

     F          Am        C   Bb
To a place I've seen in a magazine

     F               A7
That you left lying around


Dm      C        Bb
I don't have you with me 

F     Bb7             Gm
But I keep a good attitude

       F    Am  Bb   F     G
Do you miss me, Miss Misery

          Bb      F
Like you say you do?


D                          Bb
I know you'd rather see me gone

         F                  G          Bb
Than to see me         the way that I am

                C        Em6
But I am in the life anyway


Dm   C         Bb    F
Next door the TV's flashing

Bb7                 Gm
Blue frames on the wall

        F  Am    C           Bb
It's a comedy of errors, you see

     F               A7
It's about taking a fall


Dm   C      Bb    F   Bb7
To vanish into oblivion

Is easy to do

      F      Am         Bb   
And I try to be but you know me 

F      G             Bb      F     Am
I come back when you want me to

       F    Am  Bb   F     G
Do you miss me, Miss Misery

          Bb      F
Like you say you do?

Thank you very much for it man.. you got the skeleton of the song very well and the suggested alternate chords are a big help. Keep 'em comin' !

Sounds like the lyrics are a bit off, is that just me?
