[Verse 1]
G                      C         G
When I think of those East End lights
C
Muggy nights
G                           F                 C
The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
F                             G
Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
F                         G                C
Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
          Cm
And it's one more beer
                      A7
And I don't hear you anymore
       C
We've all gone crazy lately
    C#dim                                 G
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
            D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah


[Chorus]
C                       G            Am         G
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
C                     G           Am
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
     G      C                        Bm7
You nearly had me roped and tied
C               C#dim
Altar-bound, hypnotized
        G
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
          C#dim
You're a butterfly
     C
And butterflies are free to fly
C#dim      G        Bm7  C
Fly away, high away bye bye
C       Bm7             Am    G   F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh


Intro: (do twice)


[Verse 2]
G                       C      G
I never realized the passing hours
C
Of evening showers
   G                  F               C
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
     F                          G
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene

F                 G                       C
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
Cm
It's four o'clock in the morning
          A7
Damn it listen to me good
C
I'm sleeping with myself tonight
C#dim  [x45650]                                G
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive
          D
Ah ah ah ah ah ah


[Chorus]
C                       G            Am         G
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
C                     G           Am
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
     G      C                        Bm7
You nearly had me roped and tied
C               C#dim
Altar-bound, hypnotized
        G
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
          C#dim
You're a butterfly
     C
And butterflies are free to fly
C#dim      G        Bm7  C
Fly away, high away bye bye
C       Bm7             Am    G   F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh


(Then do Intro Twice Again, then go to Bridge)


[Bridge]
Am                                          G
And I would have walked head on into the deep end the river
Em7
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
             C
Paying your H.P. demands forever
Am                                     G
They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
Em7                               C
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Em7                               C
Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
Em7
Someone saved my life tonight
C                                             C#dim       Bm7  C
So save your strength and run the field you play alone


[Chorus]
C                       G            Am         G
And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear
C                     G           Am
You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
     G      C                        Bm7
You nearly had me roped and tied
C               C#dim
Altar-bound, hypnotized
        G
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
          C#dim
You're a butterfly
     C
And butterflies are free to fly
C#dim      G        Bm7  C
Fly away, high away bye bye
C       Bm7             Am    G   F
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh


(Then go to the ending)

G                                                 C

what's with the question marks? and the Bm7 after "roped and tied" doesn't sound quite right to me but i haven't payed super close attention to it.

The Bm7 really doesn't sound right.. For the chorus, these sound much better imo:

G C G/B
For "You nearly had me roped and tied", play

G/B Major:
B--3--------3------------------------------------------
G--0------0--------------------------------------------
D--0----0----------------------------------------------
A--2---------------------------------------------------

C#dim G GM7/B C
For "Fly away, high away bye bye", play
GM7/B:
e--2---------------------------------------------------
B--3---------------------------------------------------
G--0---------------------------------------------------
D--0---------------------------------------------------
A--2---------------------------------------------------

C G/B Am G F
And last: for "Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh"
