The passing notes are played by the double bass,
but are included here to add interest.

[Intro]
     G          Dsus4       Cadd9
||:  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  / :|| [x2]


[Verse 1]
      G           G/D           Cadd9         G
Six rain ridden summers, and he still had an eye for me,
    Cadd9           G                  G/B  Dsus4
He kissed me each evening, and told me he'd die for me,
             Em7     D/F#     G            Cadd9        G
And then he...   ran off the road, full of whisky and irony,
G         Dsus4                C       Cadd9
He always meant what he said------!  |  /  /  /  |


[Verse 2]
   G          G/D      Cadd9          G
So I took to whisky, so I could re - call...
       Cadd9          G                    G/B   Dsus4
...The taste of his mouth ...on my mouth, that's all,
       Em7      D/F#   G          Cadd9            G
And I tried the same trick with a truck, but it stalled,
      G        Dsus4   D    C  C/B C/A   G    G/F# 
The engine was better off dead!       |  /  /  /  |


[Chorus]
Em7    Gmaj7/B   Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long------,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7   Gmaj7/B    Cadd9            G
    Oh, how the nights are long------,
          G  (G/A)(G/B) Dsus4  D   C  (C/B)(C/A)
But the sun's com - in'  over the hill!

[Break]
   G           D4        Cadd9        C (C/B)(C/G)
|  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  | /___/   /  /  |


[Verse 3]
     G                   G/D       Cadd9                G
The taste never left me,     and I don't think it will,
       Cadd9           G              G/B  Dsus4
And it caused me to supplement whisky with pills,
                Em7    D/F#   G          Cadd9              G
But there was something in - side ...that I couldn't kill,
       G         Dsus4   D          C     Cadd9
Be - lieve me, I really did ...try!     |  /  /  /  |


[Verse 4]
             G           G/D                  Cadd9                    G
And there's some say you get what you deserve,      but they're wrong,
              Cadd9              G                  G/B Dsus4
Sometimes, you get what you're given, and then it's all gone,
             Em7   D/F# G                 Cadd9            G
And you are lucky,  if you are ...suff - iciently strong-----,
     G        Dsus4  D      C (C/B)(C/A)   G    G/F#
To daily de - cide  not to die!         |  /  /  /  |


[Chorus]
Em7    Gmaj7/B   Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long-------,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7   Gmaj7/B    Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long-------,
          G  (G/A)(G/B) Dsus4  D   C  (C/B(C/A)   G
But the sun's com - in'  over the hill!        |  /  /  /  |

[Verse 6]
   G                G/D        Cadd9               G
I can't say there's many things I wouldn't change,
          Cadd9        G                   G/B  Dsus4
There are better days gone than those that re - main,
   Em7    D/F#  G         Cadd9               G
But I can find joy in the sound of the rain,
     G          Dsus4  D      Cadd9    C (C/B)(C/A)
You have to find joy where you can!  |  /   /   /  |


[Chorus]
Em7    Gmaj7/B   Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long-------,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7   Gmaj7/B    Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long-------,
          G  (G/A)(G/B) Dsus4  D   C  (C/B(C/A)   G     G/F#
But the sun's com - in'  over the hill!        |  /  /  /  |


[Chorus]
Em7    Gmaj7/B   Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long-------,
       Cadd9      G     D      (D/A)(D/B)(D/C)
Though life is longer still,  |  /    /    /  |
Em7   Gmaj7/B    Cadd9             G
    Oh, how the nights are long-------,
          G  (G/A)(G/B) Dsus4  D   C  
But the sun's com - in'  over the hill...


[Coda]
         C         Dsus4  D   G      Dsus4       Cadd9
