[Verses]
Am Fmaj7 C B7 E


[Verse 1]
  Am                    Fmaj7
I sold my soul for the second time
         C             B7   E
cos the land, it don't pay me
   Am                    Fmaj7
i begged my landlord for some more time
          C                 B7  E
he said "son, the bills are waiting"
    Am                       Fmaj7
my best friend called me the other night
          C           B7  E
he said "man, are you crazy?"
    Am                    Fmaj7
my girlfriend told me to get a life
          C           B7  E
she said boy, are you lazy


[Chorus]
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
        Fmaj7
If you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E            E7
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it


[Solo]
Am Fmaj7 C B7 E (x4)

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
        Fmaj7
If you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E            E7
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it


[Repeat the intro]


[Verse 2]
   Am                   Fmaj7
I lost my faith in the summertime
        C         B7  E
cos it don't stop raining
    Am                 Fmaj7
The sky all day is as black as night
         C      B7  E
but i'm not complaining
   Am                  Fmaj7
I begged my doctor for one more line
         C        B7  E
he said son words fail me
   Am                   Fmaj7
it ain't no place to be killing time
        C        B7  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
        Fmaj7
If you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E            E7
I can't get a life if my heart's not in it


Repeat the intro and cut off the last Am by muting it right after you hit it
