       Am E Am
       Am

  Am                    Fmaj7
i sold my soul for the second time
         C             B11  E
cos the land, it don't pay me
   Am                    Fmaj7
i begged my landlord for some more time
          C                 B11 E
he said "son, the bills are waiting"
    Am                       Fmaj7
my best friend called me the other night
          C           B11 E
he said "man, are you crazy?"
    Am                    Fmaj7
my girlfriend told me to get a life
           C           B11 E
she said "boy, are you lazy"


Dm           Am      (you can play barre chords here)
but i don't mind
    Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm      Am
i'll be fine
        Fmaj7
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E
i can't get a life if my heart's not in it...

Fmaj7 Am

   Am                   Fmaj7
i lost my faith in the summertime
        C         B11 E
cos it don't stop raining
    Am                 Fmaj7
the sky all day is as black as night
         C      B11 E
but i'm not complaining
   Am                  Fmaj7
i begged my doctor for one more line
          C           B11  E
he said "son... words fail me"
   Am                   Fmaj7
it ain't no place to be killing time
        C        B11 E
i guess i'm just lazy

Dm           Am
i don't mind
    Dm                                Am
as long as there's a bed beneath the stars that shine
Dm      Am
i'll be fine
        Fmaj7
if you give me a minute, a man's got a limit
   G                       E
i can't get a life if my heart's not in it...
