-----------------------------...................

*from 'Sunshine on Leith' (1988)*


Intro:

G  C  G (x2), D7, C  D7  G

Verse 1:

                G      C        G
Just when every ray of hope was gone;
                         C                G
I should have known that you would come a-long.
                  D7                C      D7         G
I can't believe I ever doubted you; my old friend the blues.

Verse 2:

               G        C        G
Another lonely night, a nameless town,
                       C                    G
If sleep don't take me first; you'll come a-round.
                  D7                   C      D7         G
'Cos I know I can always count on you; my old friend the blues.

Bridge 1:

G                 C            G       C
 Lovers leave and friends will let you down.
                    G    D               G
But you're the only sure thing that I've found.
                 D7                   C      D7         G
No matter what I do, I'll never lose, my old friend the blues.

Bridge 2:

G                 C            G       C
 Lovers leave and friends will let you down.
                    G    D               G
But you're the only sure thing that I've found.
                 D7                   C      D7         G
No matter what I do, I'll never lose, my old friend the blues.

Thank you! Love this song and can't wait to play it. Sick of friends taking the mick out of Charlie and Craig. They are much more than "500 Mile Stompers"! Love their touchingly romantic songs so much.
