 play intro over lines of the verse


D
my husband left me last night
D
left me a poor and lonely wife
D
and I cooked the meals, and he lived the life
D
and now I'm just down for the rest of my time
D
Oh he, Oh me, Oh My

   A
I speak because I can
   G                        D
To anyone I trust enough to listen
    A
You speak because you can
   G                           D
To anyone Who'll hear what you say


    Gb
hmmm-mm
               G              D
I swear it was not my choice
    Gb
hmmm-mm
          G          D
I Used to be so kind


Never rode my bike down to the sea
never finished that letter I was writing
never got up and said anything
worthy, for he, oh my

G
Graceful sleeper
D
Midnight dreamer
    G                D
I'm Floored by your sound
    G                D
I'm Floored by your sound

    Gb
hmmm-m
               G             D
I swear it was not my choice
Gb              G            D
to reach out to someone wise
Gb        G         D
I used to be so kind
Gb        G         D
I used to be so kind


       A                                 G                  D
At the breaking of the morning you'll be dancing on my soft lawn
             A                          G                        D
when you're shaking out the anger that stops you from taking my calls
             A                             G                           
   D
when you're running up the highway singing I'm the king, the king of you all
        A                                G                       D
and you look back to where you started, I'll be there waving you on


never rode my bike down to the sea
never quite figured out what I believe
never got up and said anything
worthy, for he, oh my.
