THE BUG (by Mark Knopfler; recorded by Mary Chapin Carpenter)
-------------------------------------------------------------
[Each chord is one measure, except two chords joined by a hyphen
 are one measure _total_.]

[intro]

            E7                    E7            E7  E7
Well it's a strange old game, you learn it slow
E7                        E7          E7  E7
One step forward and it's back you go
       E7                               E7                    E7  E7
You're standing on the throttle, you're standing on the brake
E7                      E7
 In the groove till you make a mistake

E7                    E7         E7                    D7
 Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug
E7             E7                     E7                       D   -    D
 Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're just a fool in love
E7                    E7                      E7                    D7
 Sometimes you're the Louisville Slugger baby, sometimes you're the ball
E7             E7                     E7                      D   -    D
 Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're gonna lose it all

You gotta know happy, you gotta know glad
Because you're gonna know lonely and you're gonna know sad
When you're rippin' and a-ridin' and you're coming on strong
You start slippin' and a-slidin' and it all goes wrong

Because sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all falls together baby, sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville Slugger baby, sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're gonna lose it all

E7  E7(sus4)  E7  E7    E7  E7  E7  D - D    E7  E7  E7  E7
[guitar solo]

One day you got the glory, and then you got none
One day you're a diamond, and then you're a stone
Everything can change in the blink of an eye
So let the good times roll before we say goodbye

Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the Louisville Slugger baby, sometimes you're the ball
Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're gonna lose it all
Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're a fool in love
Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby, sometimes you're just a fool in love

E7  E7  E7  D7
[repeat and fade]
