It's actually originally tabbed by an Unregistered person, but I found that his chords seemed to sound a bit funny and I made some changes to it that seemed to sound fine. There's a part missing near the ending, but generally it works fine to my ears I play it with a capo on 1st. C Am The bar closes early on the Sabbath day F G So me and my kid we hit the park to play C Am Then it'd start to rain so we'd walk home again F He asked why he was born G I don't know what to say C Am I don't feel guilty and I don't feel sad F G This mother fucking life is the best he's had C Am I said I've been there sonny and it ain't that bad F G I took my hits from the shits back when I was a lad Chorus: F Am So long ago and even though I tried C G F I couldn't make him see the life he had cast in front of me Am C G And even though I cried I couldn't make him be the very thing I needed (Same chord progression of C, Am, F, G) His mother'd make a scene when I come home late She look like she's dying but she's twenty eight I never loved that whore I never will no more Except for a month back in '84 The jam was playing and my heart stood still gazing at a shadow on the window sill Chorus: (Chord progression of F, Am, C, G) So long ago and even though I tried I couldn't make her see I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be And even though I cried I couldn't make her be the very thing I needed And even though I tried I couldn't make her see I wasn't quite the man she thought I'd be And even though I cried I couldn't make her be the very thing I needed (This is the part I've not figured out) Could she be the very thing I needed? Could she be the very thing the very thing C G Push yourself away from your one best friend Am F Who's going to love you when you reach the end? Who will? Who will?
