[Verse]
       
  Am                    Fmaj7
I sold my soul for the second time
         C             B11   E
cos the land, it don't pay me
  Am                          Fmaj7
I begged my landlord for some more time
          C                 B11     E
he said "son, the bills are waiting"
   Am                         Fmaj7
my best friend called me the other night
          C           B11  E
he said "man, are you crazy?"
   Am                     Fmaj7
my girlfriend told me to get a life
           C           B11  E
she said "boy, are you lazy"


[Chorus]
(you can play barre chords here)
Dm              Am
   but I don't mind
   Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm          Am
   I'll be fine
       F7                
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
  G                      E
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it...


[Instrumental]

Am   Fmaj7  C       B11 E  x3
Am   Fmaj7  C B11 E


[Chorus]

Dm          Am
   I don't mind
   Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm          Am
   I'll be fine
       F7                
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
  G                      E
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it...


[Instrumental]

Am      E x3
Am E Am


[Verse]

  Am                    Fmaj7
I lost my faith in the summertime
        C         B11    E
cos it don't stop raining
    Am                 Fmaj7
the sky all day is as black as night
         C     B11     E
but I'm not complaining
  Am                       Fmaj7
I begged my doctor for one more line
          C           B11     E
he said "son... words fail me"
   Am                    Fmaj7
it ain't no place to be killing time
         C       B11 E
I guess I'm just lazy


[Chorus]

Dm          Am
   I don't mind
   Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm          Am
   I'll be fine
       F7                
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
  G                      E
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it...


[Ending]

Am      E x3
Am E Am
