Verse
Main Riff
You're the kind of man that takes what he can and doesn't ask
Main Riff
Well this trait I can't condone but I am told that in the state I acquiesce
Main Rif
Occasionally a man for free is exactly what I need
Main Riff (add 5th fret on D string at the very end)
And how long has it been since I have given in to what I see was right in front of me?

Bridge
     G#m     F#                Bdim                               
Now I'm all alone and far from home and 
                            E         G#m  F#    C#dim
I don't always know what's good for me
      G#m             F#             Bdim       
The more time that we spend in my bed and 
                                         F#  
you're playing with my head and I get turned Around, around, around, around

Chorus
                  B                   C#m            Esus2                B        
'Cause you use me up, and you wear me down when I'm ahead I get up when I'm glad I'm found
        D#m                                 E                   Em
And I'm this way and I'm that way cuz it's your way or the high way
                  B              C#m           
Cause you use me up (you use me up!)
                         Esus2                B   
and you wear me down (and you wear me down!)
                  B              C#m           
yeah you use me up (you use me up) 
     Esus2                B   
(and you wear me down!)
                  

Verse 2 
Main Riff
When you're the kind of man that wants what he can't have and so he goes
Main Riff
I guess that I'm the same so who's to blame, just the same I'd like to know
Main Riff
Occasionally some room to breathe is exactly what I need
Main Riff
And how long has it been since I have had a friend that'll make me see what's right in front of me

Bridge

Now I'm all alone and far from home and 
                            E          G#m  F#    C#dim
I don't always know what's good for me
      G#m             F#             Bdim       
The more time that we spend in my bed and 
                                      F#  
you're playing with my head and I get turned Around, around, around, around

(Ooooh oooh oooh)
