Take me to the station

and put me on a train

and now I am so poor
A               E                   
But never in my sweet, short life

have I felt like this before

Your heart is like a diamond,

it's here and then it's gone
A                        E
So take me to the airport 
A                    E
and put me on a plane
A                       E
I've got no expectations

I knew she would meet her connection
C                                F
At her feet was her footloose man
C                                     F
No, you can't always get what you want

C                                                    F
Yeah, and he said one word to me, and that was "dead"
F
I said to him
C                                 F       
You can't always get what you want

She was practiced at the art of deception
C                                           F
