[Verse]

C F-C Dm G:
Had a little love,
But I spread it thin
Falling in her arms and out again
Made a bad name for my game around town
Tore up my heart, and shut it down
Nothing to do
Nowhere to be
A simple little kind of free
Nothing to do
No one to be
And that's all I need
I'm perfectly lonely
I'm perfectly lonely
              

[Chorus] 

              Em    Am   
I'm perfectly lonely
      Dm                     
Coz I don't belong to anyone
G
Nobody belongs to me


[Half intro]


[Verse]

C F-C Dm G:
I see friends around from time to time
When their ladies let them slip away
And when they ask me how I'm doing with mine
This is always what I say
I got nothing to lose
Nowhere to be
A simple little kind of free


[Chorus]

Em
  Nothing to do
Am
  No one to be
Dm                       G
  Is it really hard to see?

              C
I'm perfectly lonely
F               Dm     G
  I'm perfectly lonely
               Em    Am   
I'm perfectly lonely
      Dm                     
Coz I don't belong to anyone
G
Nobody belongs to me


[Verse]

Am
  And this is not to say
G  
  There never comes a day
F                           G          G-G#-Am
  I'll take my chances and start again
Am
  And when I look behind
G
  On all my younger times
F  
  I have to thank the wrongs 
     Fm
That led me to a love so strong


[Solo]

C F-C Dm G


[Chorus]

              C
I'm perfectly lonely
F               Dm     G
  I'm perfectly lonely
               Em    Am   
I'm perfectly lonely
      Dm                     
Coz I don't belong to anyone
G
Nobody belongs to me


[Outro]

C F-C Dm G:
It's the way,It's the way,It's the way that I want it
It's the way,It's the way,It's the way that I want it
It's the way,It's the way,It's the way that I want it

The bridge is wrong by 1 chord.

It goes from Am to Em (not G) to F then to G

So your missing the Em.. You have G instead.
