[Verse 1]
              A
You’ll be knocked out, come around, shot down,
                Em
Shatter on the stony ground,
                   G                  D
Yeah, take it from me, it’s how it’ll be,
                   A
Your dreams will come true, fall through, screw you,
               Em
Batter you to black and blue,
                   G                  D
Yeah, take it from me, it’s how it’ll be!


[Chorus]
                         A
Love’s gonna leave you broken,
                       Em
Time’s gonna work you over,
                    G                       D
You get up, you get up, ...you keep rolling on,
                         A
Life’s gonna bring you glory,
                                 Em
But there’s another side to the story,
                        G                       D
You get up, and suck it up, ...you keep rolling on-----!


[Verse 2]
             A            A7    Em
But if you crash land in the quicksand,
  Em7   G                              D
I will pick you up, I’ll pull you out------,
            A                         A7  Em
And if the world shakes, your brit - tle heart breaks,
   Em7   G                              D
We will patch it up, we’ll work it out------,
         A                        A7  Em
La - la, lie, lie -lie -lie! La - la, lie, lie -lie -lie!
   Em7    G                              D
We will patch it up, we’ll work it out------!


[Verse 3]
          A
You’ll be on track, on the rack, bounce back,
                 Em
Wheeling down a bumpy road,
                   G                  D
Yeah, take it from me, it’s how it’ll be,
             A                 A4            Em
Through the good times, ..the sad times, oh, off you go,
                  G                 D
But, take it from me, whatever you need!


[Chorus]
                         A
Love’s gonna leave you broken,
                       Em
Time’s gonna work you over,
                    G                       D
You get up, you get up, ...you keep rolling on,
                         A
Life’s gonna bring you glory,
                                 Em
But there’s another side to the story,
                        G                       D
You get up, and suck it up, ...you keep rolling on-----!


[Verse 4]
             A           A7    Em
But if you crash land in the quicksand,
  Em7   G                              D
I will pick you up, I’ll pull you out------,
             A                       A7   Em
And if the world shakes, your brit - tle heart breaks,
   Em7    G                              D 
We will patch it up, we’ll work it out---------!


[Verse 5]
            A                      A7   Em
When your world cracks open, when your heart is broken,
   Em7   G                               D
We will patch it up, we’ll work it out-------,
                        A
Life’s gonna bring you glory,
                             A7  Em
But there’s another side to the story,
   Em7    G                              D
We will patch you up, we'll work it out------!


[Verse 6]
   A             Em                       G

                     D Dsus2  D Dsus2  D Dsus2  D Dsus2
We'll work it out-----,
             A                          Em
And if the world shakes, your brittle heart breaks,
    Em7  G
We will patch it up, we’ll work it out,
Dmaj7                             Dsus2           D
       I will patch you up, we’ll work it out!
