Written by Elton John, Bernie Taupin & Davey Johnstone (1983)

[Intro]
C Em F
C Em F


[Verse 1]
G
  Don't wish it away
      Em               F        C    F C   F C   F C
Don't look at it, like it's, forever
                G                    Bm
Between you and me, I could honestly say
     F                   C      F C   F C   F C
That things can only get better
.
               G
And while I'm away
B7                    Em   G7                C
Dust out the demons inside,  and it won't be long
                  G
Before you-and-me run
                    Am      F        G    Am7 G7
To the place in our hearts, where we hide


[Chorus]
      C                     G           F
And I guess that's why they call it the blues
F    F  F  C              G               F
Time-on-my-hands could be time spent with you
C             G                     Am
Laughing like children, living like lovers
C            F                  D7
Rolling like thunder, under the covers
      F                     G           C     Em F
And I guess that's why they call it the blues


[Verse 2]
G
  Just stare into space
Em          F             C     F C   F C   F C
Picture, my face, in your hands
              G                   Bm
Live for each second, without hesitation
    F                     C   F C   F C   F C
And never forget I'm your man
.
           G
Wait on me girl
B7                     Em    G7               C
Cry in the night if it helps,  but more than ever
               G
I sim-ply-love you
            Am    F      G    Am7 G7
More than I love, life itself


[Chorus]
      C                     G           F
And I guess that's why they call it the blues
F    F  F  C              G               F
Time-on-my-hands could be time spent with you
C             G                     Am
Laughing like children, living like lovers
C            F                  D7
Rolling like thunder, under the covers
      F                     G           C     Em F
And I guess that's why they call it the blues

And I guess that's why they call it the blues...
