          Am                   Am/B F                           C 
You are watching a programme for exactly an hour
All of these hours they will add up to a day
         Am                                        F
You will sit there till they're done now there are 24 to play
              C                                 G
And there are rims around your eyelballs by the 7th or the 8th
            F                               G             Am
But if you go to sleep tonight you will be older when you wake
            F                                 G                            
And you say one man is the parachute and the other is the knife that cuts 
the brakes

Am                       Am/B   F
First we were born then we ran slowly out of luck
     C                                     G
You are still not Charles Bukowski and i am not Diane Cluck  
             Am                                       F
And i would suck the life from you if there was any left to suck
            C                                  G
And i would love you if you told me there was something there to love
I would marry you for money
I would marry you for money
        C             G           Am
I would marry you for money if it stuck
        F                              G                         Am
I would marry you for money but i don't suppose you'll ever have enough

 Am                      Am/B F
Man on the screen he has done more in a minute
    C                                G
Than you have achieved in your whole entire life
        Am                              F
When you finally realise i was the best thing you had init
          C                              G
We'll be closing up your eyelids on the bed on which you die
And i'll be sorry if it happens to you
Sorry if it happens to you
C              G            Am
Sorry if it happens to you but
         F                            G
They say one life is the cancer and another is the blade that 
makes the cut

C            F                  C
24 for every year that we have slipped
Am                         G                    
     Day by day into the neck of the abyss
         C          F                  C
And i am 24 today i don't believe i'll sit
            Am                             G                     
Through another year of this while you are sewing up your lips
And i'll be sorry that you happened to me
Sorry that you happened to me
C              G             Am
Sorry that you happened to me but
              F                          G
They say that one man is the accident the other is the hand that stops the 
           F                         G                              Am
And i am looking for the other one,  for the hand to stop the blood

I find that having the Capo on 1 makes it sound better.
