Lonesome Lullaby
Electric LIght Orchestra
Intro:  D-A-E (2x)
    D              A               E
I:     I listened to the whine for way too long,   
   D            A            E
       Time for me to hear a different song
 Bm                          F#m
       I waited overtime for things to turn around,  
  G                             A
       Tired of waiting for it all to hit the ground
    D               A         E

II:   You said you knew all about it, 
  D             A                  E
      What was right and what was wrong
Bm                                  F#m
      You pulled the world over the eyes of everyone, 
 G                              D             F#               
      Maybe I was weak when I should've been strong
          Bm          C#                                                    
   Ref :  Cry, baby, cry.   
           Em                         F#       Bm  G F#
          Tell me 'bout your lonesome lulla--- by
           Bm          C#                                                
           Cry, baby, cry.    
           Em                         F#      Bm
          Tell me 'bout your lonesome lulla---by
   D                     A                E
III:  You took me by surprise and like a shot in the dark (shot in the dark)
   D               A                E
       You showed yourself in your truest light (truest light)
 Bm                                  F#m
       You saved yourself by saving nobody else
 G                                     D          F#
       You must have cringed when you heard them tell     

(repeat refrain)
   D               A                 E
IV:  You took the wrong turn at the city of dreams (city of dreams)
 D                  A             E
     You ended up back where you came from it seems (came from it seems)
 Bm                                      F#m
     Back there to where there's nothing else to do
G                                      D            F#
     Back there where you can sit and think of only you    

(repeat refrain)
       Bm     C#         Em                          F#     Bm
       C-----r----y,     tell me 'bout your lonesome lulla---by
       Bm       C#       Em                          F#      Bm
       C-----r-----y,    tell me 'bout your lonesome lulla---by 

       You're lonesome lullaby

It sounds as if after the E chord, an E7 is strummed.

After the 7th, sounds like he moves the d note on the 2nd string,3rd fret, down 1/2 a step or 1 fret. might be called a 6th.By my ear because i got very little brain or education.Sincerely,Vegan Minstrel/YouTube.
I'm an idiot.Did not mean to drop a star. If not 4 these chord names, i couldn't play these beautiful songs.
